The Saudi “previously” stated, that in the seventies of the nineteenth century AD, the Indian spice merchant, Mayankuti Ki, landed in Mecca to perform the Hajj, and during his stay he decided to build a guest house in the holy capital near the Great Mosque of Mecca, to receive his people and their hospitality during the performance of the duty, except That house turned into a source of conflict and strife between his family and his wife’s family, to win its value estimated at one billion dollars.

The dispute is due to the insistence of the Indian merchant’s family that he did not have children, while the wife’s family argues that the deceased left a son and a daughter, and therefore they are worthy of the value of compensation, and the point of contention here is due to the matriarchal system followed by the state of Kerala, where property is transmitted through the mother and female relatives.
