11 Mar 2006 Kim Priestap: Buried by Strangers
Posted at 05:51h in Blog
Kim Priestap tells us about a man who was a national hero in his country and a Hindu, who had Hindu parents and a Hindu wife.
When he died, however, an Islamic Court ordered that he be buried as if he had been a Muslim, and the civil courts said they had no standing to overrrule an Islamic court. So he was, as a lawyer in his country said, “buried by strangers.”
What country did this happen in? If you guessed a country in the Middle East or Afghanistan, you’re wrong.
