Covid-19 is a worldwide pandemic with global authorities such as the World Health Organisation advising on matters of burial for those who have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and later died.
The recent acts of the Sri Lankan government discriminate against those whose religious beliefs are against being cremated.
This against official advice which determines a normal burial alone will suffice with no need for cremation.
