Christians in Muktsar dist demand land for burial
Muktsar, February 15
A majority of Christians within the district are reportedly unable to carry out the final rites of the deceased following correct rituals as they must journey to Bathinda for this goal.
In Muktsar city, there’s one graveyard of Catholics and the opposite is positioned at Badhai village for Protestants, which has little area. Nonetheless, in Malout and Gidderbaha, there are not any graveyards for Christians. In such a state of affairs, they must journey about 30-50 km to Bathinda or use private land for the burial.
“We’ve raised this situation a number of occasions up to now, however no one is listening to us,” stated Pastor Robinson.
“There are practically 25,000 Christians in Muktsar district and a few of us even cremate the physique by burning it in any close by cremation floor simply due to unavailability of graveyards,” he added.
Christians right this moment lodged a protest exterior the District Administrative Complicated and handed over a memorandum to the DC.
