All we have asked is for a dignified burial be afforded to the deceased in keeping with international norms, guidelines and regulations practiced worldwide. Why Sri Lankan health regulations maintain an exception to this is baffling given all of this. Today there is a spike in cases, I plea on humanitarian grounds to H.E President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, to please be kind enough to consider a reversal of the stance to mandate cremation and issue an order to the health Minister to respect religious freedoms as outlined in our Constitution, especially as burial of COVID victims is an established practice worldwide.

At this juncture we kindly request you to reconsider the COVID19 ciruluar and the gazatte notification regarding the Muslim deaths due to Corona. Please give us to burry no to cremate.

As you have sole executive power now to do all the things through 20 th amendment of the constitution. please be good enough to exercise our usual burry for the deaths due to Corona as well.

We Muslims of Sri Lanka look forward to hearing a positive response from you in this regard. Your prompt respond in this regard will be highly appreciated.
