Corpses are spreading in cremation areas as Corona infection increases the death toll. There is a lot of trouble at the funeral. In this period of extraordinary crisis, the Catholic Church in Ahmedabad asked its followers to consider cremating the corpses of Corona. Residents of the city’s Parsi community made similar appeals. Significantly, under normal circumstances, such religious activities are prohibited in both societies.
On April 12, Bishop Athanasius Ratna Swami from Ahmedabad issued a letter in this regard asking his followers to crown the dead from Corona. The message said the current situation raised the challenge of having a dignified funeral in front of churches. The message also mentioned the Christian cemetery below.
According to sources, Beladbagh Cemetery near Delhi Chakla is almost 50 percent full. However, Catholic law allows cremation here in such a case. After the ritual, their ashes will be preserved with complete dedication.
He said that the current Corona wave does not exclude anyone. In the same way, the Parsee community also applied and requested a funeral. Anjman’s lawyer, the community priest, said that the cremation option here is only for Corona dead.
