"'Dream come true' for Pakistani women after Saudi Arabia relaxes pilgrim visa rules"

Reader comment on item: A Century of the Muslim Brotherhood

Submitted by Robert (United States), Oct 21, 2022 at 17:50

Royal Prince Mohammed bin Salman (Al Saud) is a great reformist leader of Saudi Arabia.

Although Jamal Khashoggi, the Islamist (Muslim Brotherhood) journalist was killed under the Prince's administration, the fact is he is consistently raising the status of women in his extremely conservative Muslim kingdom, while his more conservative father is king.

Now, under his governance, women from Pakistan can perform their pilgrimage to Mecca - with being accompanied by a male guardian.

Once again, this is why we (USA) should support Saud Arabia under MbS! Unfortunately, I don't think Biden was able to persuade MbS that he is any different than Obama who only was concerned with human rights and the political killing of one man.
