Muslims begin hajj pilgrimage
Dhaka, 19 August, Abnews: More than two million Muslims from around the globe started the hajj pilgrimage on Sunday in Saudi Arabia.
 
Every Muslim is required to complete the hajj journey to Islam’s holiest sites at least once in their lifetime if they are healthy enough and have the means to do so.

Tens of thousands of security personnel have been deployed for the pilgrimage, which was struck by its worst ever disaster three years ago when around 2,300 worshippers were crushed to death in a stampede.
 
This year, the Saudis have launched a “smart hajj” initiative, with apps to help pilgrims with everything from travel plans to medical care.
