In his conversation with the Halal Monk, Ziauddin Sardar once more adresses these issues.: "they’re transforming Mecca very much into a city like imperial Rome. All the cultural property has been removed. They build huge hotels, shopping malls and palaces on top of the Kaaba, transforming it into a contemporary imperial center. It’s not much of a sacred city anymore. It’s a pretty ugly city in many respects. Of course, the Kaaba and its surroundings will always be sacred to Muslims, but once you go outside of it, you’re greeted with much ugliness." Although, once again, the specific business groups behind it aren't mentioned.
