A pilgrim's account
Abdul Matin, from Bangalore, India, is keeping a blog as he takes part in the Hajj pilgrimage. He says:
"It was heartening to see both Sunni and Shia, Kurd & Turkmen and other people standing shoulder to shoulder without any problem. A feeling of universal brotherhood was in the air and people who were intractable enemies were now bosom friends."
