Closed petition Urge Sri Lanka to allow the burial of Covid victims to respect religious beliefs

The UK government should urge the Sri Lankan Government to allow Covid victims to be buried according to their religious beliefs and not cremated.

More details

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.
