According to a Makkah Mukarramah police spokesman, the incident took place after Asr prayers on March 30. The man carrying the knife was immediately arrested by the Haram security forces. The accused has been handed over to the Saudi police after his arrest and legal action will be taken against him.
Dr. Sheikh Abdul Rehman Al-Sudais, Head of the General Presidency of Masjid-ul-Haram and Masjid-e-Nabawi, said that such prejudiced words are contrary to Islamic teachings and people come to mosques not for extremism but for worship.
