I totally agree with Nabhaan's opinion .It is 100 percent true, why so called leaders for this obligatory (5 pillars of islam )hajj. Everywhere people muslims or non muslims leader need publicity .May Allah show us right path and accept their hajj mabroor.Let us make dua for them to perform hajj and their safe return journey..
