annual gatherings With temperatures pushing 40 degrees Celsius under the desert sun the faithful climbed the hill east of Mecca where Muslims believe the Prophet Mohammed gave his last sermon some 14 centuries ago Pilgrims gather at Jabal al-Rahma on the second day of the Hajj pilgrimage AP The second day of the hajj — a five-day pilgrimage which all Muslims must perform at least once in their lifetime if physically and financially able —is dedicated to prayer and reflection "I came up here last night and prayed took pictures and called my family and friends" said Maolana Yahia 32 who made the trip from Indonesia This year’s hajj has seen the return of pilgrims from Saudi Arabia’s arch-rival Iran following a diplomatic row and a deadly stampede in 2015 But thousands who would normally make the journey from neighbouring Qatar are absent apart from a few dozen because of the diplomatic crisis shaking the Gulf Helicopters flew around the area as the pilgrims converged from dawn on the Mount Arafat plain and the hill known as Jabal al-Rahma or Mount of Mercy Forming a sea of white the pilgrims ascended the hill and took up positions to pray on rocks already heated by the morning sun On the concrete pathways linking the plain to the hill hundreds of thousands of devout Muslims invoked God as others rested in makeshift tents or on sheets along the side of the road amid empty bottles and waste Tunisian mother-of-three Fatima Arfawi said she was moved beyond words "This is the first time I see anything like this ever" she said "This day is dedicated to prayer for my three children and my family" In a hospital opposite the mountain an area was set aside for people suffering dehydration or heat exhaustion Saudi Arabia’s Red Crescent said it had deployed 326 ambulances along the pilgrimage route to handle health emergencies "Some pilgrims for example forget to protect their heads with an umbrella when they pray" said Bandar Al-Harthi a nurse at a hospital facing Mount Arafat In the evening the pilgrims will travel to Muzdalifa where they will spend the night before taking part in a symbolic stoning of the devil The Jamarat Bridge where the ritual is held was the scene of a stampede in 2015 that claimed the lives of nearly 2300 pilgrims —the worst disaster in the history of the hajj Tehran reported the largest number of stampede victims with 464 Iranians among the dead The next year amid heightened political tension between Saudi Arabia and Iran Iranian pilgrims stayed away from the hajj after authorities from the two countries failed to agree on arrangements and logistics Iranian authorities say more than 86000 Iranian pilgrims are taking part this year each equipped with an identity bracelet in case of any accident Reza a 63-year-old former oil company official from Iran said he was torn between the joy of taking part and lingering grief over the stampede "They’ve taken more security measures otherwise we would not have come" he said Saudi Arabia says it has deployed more than 100000 security personnel to keep pilgrims safe At the foot of Mount Arafat mobile barriers have been installed to control the movement of the crowds "They will be moved to enlarge the passages when there are more pilgrims" said Ahmed al-Baraka of the Saudi security forces Written by Shalini Langer | New Delhi | Published: February 3 2017 5:10 pm

crime and the guilty must be punished Related News Megastar Amitabh Bachchan who is gearing up for the release of director Ribhu Dasgupta’s forthcoming thriller “Te3N” says child trafficking is an “abominable crime and the guilty must be punished” Q “Te3n” addresses itself to the extremely grave issue of children’s safety Was that a major factor in your decision to do the film A Frankly I had not thought about it till you brought it up But yes children’s safety is an important issue though the film does not entirely focus on this aspect It is a thriller a film that wraps you around a grandfather played by me looking for and trying to find the missing pieces of the death of his grandchild I liked the idea of the story and I was comfortable working with Sujoy and Ribhu both of whom I had worked with before Read More Q Every year thousands of children fall prey to the cancer of child abuse and child trafficking Your comments on the issue A Yes this is an abominable crime and the guilty must be punished Children too must be protected and more importantly educated and taught to bring such occurrences to the attention of elders and the authorities Most children at that young impressionable age are too frightened to speak about it Q You and the very talented Ribhu Dasgupta earlier worked in the serial “Yudh” In spite of its failure why did you decide to work with him again A If failure is going to be the yardstick of prospective work association then Ribhu should have thought a hundred times before working with me because my multiple failures do not compare with his very limited so-called failures I liked his work and his mind and so I worked with him and would wish to work with him in the future also Q “Te3n” has a tremendous cast led by you Vidya Balan and you last worked together in “Paa” as mother and son What sort of an equation do you share with her this time in Te3n A Vidya has been an exceptional talent and is a wonderful co-star It is always enlightening to be in her company in front of the camera She plays a police officer in this one who ‘mothers’ the complicated situation that John Biswas the character I play in the film undergoes Q For the first time you worked with Nawazuddin Siddiqui in “Te3n” He says it was an experience of a lifetime How about you A We actually co-starred in one film before Shoojit Sircar’s “Shoebite” which is an unreleased product And that was just a passing shot I was so impressed with his performance that I was wondering why he had not got bigger and more substantial roles Soon enough as we all know he has established himself as one of the finest talents we have today It has been a cherished moment for me to be working with him Q Both your releases this year “Wazir” and “Te3n” are about bereavement Could we hope to see you in something happier soon A Ok point taken and we shall start the hunt Though I must admit that the hunts have become pretty arduous and mostly without desired results these days Q Please tell me about your forthcoming films A There is “Pink” produced by Shoojit Sarkar and directed by Anirudh Roy completed and releasing by September… There is a project with

Questioning the numerous scams in the civic body he emphasised the need for a third-party audit of finances “In the last five years no independent third-party audit has been conducted If it were done all allegations could have been proved or disproved” the Congress MP said Referring to the poor condition of the city’s roads he said “Rs 28000 crore has been spent on roads in the past 10 years One can build a new city with that money But in Mumbai there are 13 times more potholes than last year and 67 per cent of the road accidents have been of two-wheelers” Tharoor also referred to the dwindling numbers of students in the city’s municipal schools “Thirty eight Marathi medium schools have been closed in the past five years and 40000 Marathi students have left BMC schools even though it spends Rs 5000 on every student” he said The Congress’s manifesto is expected next week and Tharoor stated that the party had emphasised on aspects such as property tax “We have focused on issues such as drinking water health education and most importantly women’s welfare something that has been neglected by the both the BJP and the Shiv Sena” he said In response leader of the house and Sena corporator Trushna Vishwasrao said that the allegations had no basis since the civic administration was responsible for tabling proposals in the Standing Committee “The proposals are prepared by the administration which is headed by the municipal commissioner who directly reports to the chief minister In that case how can allegations be levelled against us Our only right is to give approvals and the BJP has approved all the proposals with us” Vishwasrao said adding that those guilty of involvement in the scams have been held accountable in inquiries conducted against them mumbainewsline
