Muslim pilgrim found to have swine flu in Saudia. Ultimately they will tell us to stop Hajj to 'save the world'
I think Usman means that because a pilgrim brought Swine Flu to Saudi Arabia that we (the evil westerners) will make them stop having pilgrimages to Mecca (?)so Swine Flu (or H1N1) doesn't keep spreading. Maybe. I'm not sure, but if Hajj means pilgrimage, that's what I make of it.
The hajj is not gonna stop, but now that you mention it that does seem like an ideal setting to transmit disease.
Hajj is not going to stop or be stopped. And as recent years have shown, pilgrims are in far greater danger of being crushed to death than from infection.
