Saudis not capable of managing Hajj

“They are not able to manage this and it is important that we look at other structures and the ways of how … Muslim countries and organizations can get involved in managing this hajj event,” said Kazem on Saturday.

He added that an independent investigation must be launched into the whole incident and the reasons behind it.
