Arab Twitter users are using the hashtag “Tweet like al-Jazeera” to imagine how the Qatari media outlet would have covered this year’s Hajj season in Saudi Arabia.

The twitter users posted pictures that went viral in this year’s season, showing Saudi police officers and pilgrims, and wrote sarcastic fake story headlines as they imagine al-Jazeera would publish them.

Here are some of the most entertaining ones:



1. “Saudi police officer caught on camera trying to place a barrier above the pilgrim so that his prayers don’t reach (heaven).”


2. “Saudi soldier forces a pilgrim to kiss his forehead.”

3. “Police officer forbids pilgrim from walking.”


4. “Breaking: A hungry Saudi police officer bites the head of one of the pilgrims.”

5. “A soldier assigned to spy on pilgrims’ prayers.”


6. “A Saudi soldier cries due to not being able to hurt pilgrims.”
