    Only alternative is to allow the burials in their respective areas under Medical conditions.

    Burial won't work any part of the country, so go for the cremation no other way.

    Get the advice from Imran Khan. He knows how to bowl and take wickets.

    Stop now.... no burials or any talks related to that. Go a head with cremation whatever opposition comes.

    Azad Sally, what do you want to do now? After death either burried or cremated nothing will happen, so why this fuss.

    An island a mile in length and width with high groundwater table from seawater is technically the most suitable place on earth for burial of unfortunate COVID-19 victims? The real victims in this would be the hapless residents. Time will tell. This feature says there are 165 families. Another says 12 to 15? Interesting.

    Government is playing chess with this issue.

    The only country on earth where scientific findings don't stand against community based politics.
