Jamath official to be booked for not allowing burial

Share it:
Kochi: A Kerala court Saturday (February 18, 2012) ordered the police to register an FIR against an official of a Muslim jamath here for allegedly denying permission to bury the body of a man from Bihar in the local burial ground last year on the plea that he did not belong to the jamath.

Thrikakara-Padamugal Muslim Jamath Secretary N E Ashraf had turned down the plea to bury the body of Muhamad Rehaman (34), who died on November 29 last, in Padamugal burial ground, forcing the man's relatives to conduct the last rites a day later at a burial ground 10 kms away.

Acting on the petition of T M Jamaluddin, former secretary of the jamath, Aluva Judicial First class Magistrate Kavitha Gangadharan ordered Thrikakara police to register FIR against Ashraff under sect 287 of IPC and probe the complaint and file a report.

When the man's body was brought to the Padamugal burial ground, permission was denied and the youth's relatives had to take his body about 10 km away to perform the last rites the next day at the Ernakulam central masjid, which had only about 30 cents of land for burial of its dead. The petitioner had sought action against the Jamath Secretary for showing disrespect to the dead.
