Bani Saud are guilty of openly violating Allah’s commands pertaining to Hajj. From imposing visas to charging exorbitant prices and limiting Hajj to a matter of a few days, all these are contrary to Qur’anic teachings and the prophetic Sunnah. Makkah and Madinah are not their private property. Muslims must think seriously about taking these places out of the control of the Najdi Bedouins. They are unfit to administer them.
