According to her relatives in Mauritius, the sixty-year-old was in good health and did not suffer from any illness.

Early in the morning of Sunday June 9, Bibi Shenaaz Eydatoulah reportedly fell seriously ill. She was rushed to hospital, but did not survive.

Showkutally Soodhun: “Improvements will need to be made”

The Ambassador of Mauritius to Saudi Arabia, Showkutally Soodhun, shows his satisfaction with the progress of the Hajj this year. He speaks of the result of close collaboration between the staff of the embassy, ​​those of the Islamic Cultural Center and the operators.

However, the Mauritian ambassador suggests that improvements will have to be made for the 2025 Hajj, particularly concerning the elderly. “For example, we had a couple this year in which the wife was in a wheelchair while the husband struggled to walk. The Hajj quickly becomes complicated for them. It is also problematic when elderly people suffer from illnesses that make their hajj difficult,” he says.

If Showkutally Soodhun indicates that he cannot prevent anyone from performing the Hajj, whatever their state of health, he suggests that some must be accompanied by a loved one who can take care of them if necessary.

Concerning the three deceased Mauritians, Showkutally Soodhun maintains that all necessary assistance was offered to them from the time they fell ill until their burial. “We did our best,” he said.
