Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency – Ali Motahhari Deputy Speaker of the Iranian Parliament about Hajj in the coming year: If Saudi Arabia invites us, we should accept it, because the invitation could be signs of softening in Saudi policy and we mush welcome it.

"We have conditions and these should be agreed by the Saudi side; Riyadh must compensate the disasters they have done up to the present time; they should pay the blood money of Mena disaster and moreover blood money of 400 Iranian martyrs in Hajj 1366\1987; now it is a proper time to take our rights from Saudi Arabia" declared Ali Motahari a politician who represents Tehran, Rey, Shemiranat and Eslamshahr electoral district in the Parliament of Iran since 2008 and current Second Deputy of the Parliament of Iran serving since 2016.

On 24 September 2015 an event described as a "crush and stampede" caused deaths estimated at well over 2,000 pilgrims, suffocated or crushed during the annual Hajj pilgrimage in Mina, Mecca, Saudi Arabia.

The 1994 Hajj stampede resulted in the deaths of at least 270 pilgrims on 23 May 1994 during the Hajj in Mecca during the Stoning of the Devil ritual.

On 2 July 1990, an incident occurred during the Hajj in which 1,426 people were suffocated and trampled to death in a tunnel near Mecca. Until the 2015 Mina stampede, this incident had the highest death toll of any Hajj tragedy in modern times.

The 1987 Mecca incident was a clash between Shia pilgrim demonstrators and the Saudi Arabian security forces, during the Hajj pilgrimage; it occurred in Mecca on 31 July 1987 and led to the deaths of over 400 people. The event has been variously described as a riot or a massacre. It arose from escalating tensions between Shia Iran and Sunni Saudi Arabia.

Since 1981, Iranian pilgrims had held an annual demonstration against Israel and the United States, but in 1987, a cordon of Saudi police and National Guards had sealed part of the planned demonstration route, leading to a confrontation between them and the pilgrims.
