The Holy city of Makkah is the most auspicious place of worship for the Muslims. The Makkah is the home to the Holy Kaaba which is of utmost importance to the Muslim community. The Kaaba is considered to be the House of God by the Muslims and was believably placed by Abraham and Ishmael. Lakhs of Muslims visit the Holy city of Makkah every year to pay their homage to the god.
However, one of the holiest places in the world, Makkah has been in the news for quite some time and unfortunately not for the good reasons. Apparently, shocking news came from the Holy city of Makkah sometime back when two individuals committed suicide in front of the Holy Kaaba during the auspicious month of Ramadan. While the news of the suicide left everyone confused and disturbed at the same time, another incident took place at the Holy Kaaba that has sent a wave of shock among the people.
According to reports, an unidentified man tried to create a ruckus in Makkah as he threw petrol contained in a bottle at the Holy Kaaba. Being quite close to the Kaaba, he threw petrol at the Kiswa, the black cloth of the holy Kaaba.
Apparently, while the man was carrying his wrong deed, he was surrounded by a lot of civilians in the Holy Mosque. So, before he could light the holy Kaaba on fire, he was forcibly stopped by the people after which the armed forces intervened.
Somehow, this entire incident got caught on the camera and it has become quite viral on the social media now. Reportedly, the man was speaking in different languages which made it difficult for the people present there to understand him. This made it tough for the people to communicate with him or reason with him.
Take a look at the viral video:
