The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has raised the issue of mandatory cremation of COVID-19 victims in Sri Lanka at the 46th Regular Session of the UN Human Rights Council.
The Secretary-General of the OIC, Yousef Al Othaimeen in his speech during the High-Level Segment of the ongoing session yesterday, said their organisation is keen on monitoring the situation of Muslim communities in non-OIC members.
“In this regards, the OIC is concerned with the situation of the Muslims of Sri Lanka, as they are denied the right to be buried, the bodies of the Covid victims following the Islamic rule while adhering to the guidelines of the WHO. The OIC urges the Government of Sri Lanka to take swift action to guarantee and respect the right of burial of the Muslim community,” he said.
