"Islam respects women. A man must not touch a woman that is not his wife, or be violent to her. That is why I love islam. These rules however do not apply in Mecca. Men forget the rules when they go there. Today on my 2nd umra as I attempted again to touch the black stone, I was being pushed by men. One man was pushing his genitals into me from behind..the women's queue is non existent because men have used their physical strength to push women out of the way." Sofiya Hayath said.
