    The Hindu religion, the oldest in the world, introduced the practice of cremation to the world. But some religions that came into existence thousands of years after the birth of Hinduism, started this strange practice of burying the dead bodies, but this invariably lead to all the bodies being eaten by worms underground. From health and civilised point of view all bodies should be cremated irrespective of religion.

    Hospital Ambulance transporting dead bodies unacceptable. Why didn't they use Hearses

    AG has no authority to give clearance to cremate dead bodies. That must be obtained from court. The whole procedure is flawed

    very good move,Law is law and should be carried out for every one equally.
