Hindu burial in Muslim graveyard sparks protests in Pak

Islamabad, Dec. 27 : The burial of a Hindu man in a local Muslim graveyard of Pakistan's Badin district has sparked outrage among the residents.

The burial infuriated the Muslim community of the Tando Bago town of Badin district and its adjoining areas, who gathered in the town and staged a demonstration on the Bago Canal bridge, Dawn News reports.

A 75-year-old resident of village Yar Mohammad Lund was buried by his relatives in the Muslim graveyard of Bachal Shah district on Monday.

However, a few people of the town dug the grave and took out the body late on Wednesday night.

The local police reburied the body in the same place on the wee hours of Thursday, but the clerics belonging to various mosques of the town made announcements that a Hindu was buried again in their graveyard, the report added..

The protesters claimed that a decision had been reached nearly four years ago, according to which, Hindus would not bury their deceased in the same part of the graveyard.
