Saudi Arabia's Grand Mufti, Shaikh Abdul Aziz Bin Abdullah Al Shaikh, the Sunni nation's highest religious authority, has permitted the demolition of Mecca’s monuments in order to expand the Two Holy Shrines.
Al Shaikh was quoted in a lecture entitled “Reasons of Family Disintegration and Treatment Methods”, which was organised at Imam Turki Bin Abdullah mosque in Riyadh, that it is not just OK to demolish monuments in Mecca but it is necessary for the sake of expanding the area of the Two Holy Shrines.
“We should thank the country for this honest work, it is necessary to expand the area in order to contain millions of pilgrims,” Al Shaikh said.
