The pilgrims were protesting against the infidels and enemies of Islam including United States and

Israel. After Islamic revolution in 1979, Imam Khomeini had directed the pilgrims to express their hate and anger against the infidels and polytheists during Hajj rituals in Mecca.

Imam Khomeini had quoted Quranic verses in support of his call to do so. He said in one of his Hajj messages to the pilgrims that Hazrat Ibrahim (Abraham) (AS) had destroyed the idols and he was sworn enemy of polytheists.

It is also relevant to add that Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and his son Hazrat Ismail (AS) had built the Ka’aba (House of Allah).

First, Iranian and other countries’ pilgrims staged a congregation in Mecca in 1981 to vent anger and hate against the polytheists and infidels and in particular United States and Israel.

Since then, it was annual feature of Hajj rituals. Due to Imam Khomeini’s call, Mecca had been reverberated with anti-US and anti-Israel slogans during Hajj rituals.

However, in 1987, Saudi forces planned to prevent them from condemnation of the U.S. that was and still remains an ally of the United States. They opened fire upon peaceful and weapons-less Iranian and other pilgrims. More than 400 pilgrims were reported martyred due to Saudi forces unjustifiable attack on them.

Most of the martyr pilgrims were laid to rest in Behesht-e-Zahra (AS) graveyard of Tehran, Iran.

This year too, Iranian, Lebanese and other pilgrims expressed their anger for and condemnation of polytheists and infidels and the U.S. and Israel during Hajj rituals for their crimes against humanity and Islamic world.
