Sri Lanka made cremations compulsory for coronavirus victims, ignoring protests from the country's Muslim population which says the rule goes against Islamic tradition.

 

Three Muslims are among the seven people who have so far died from the infectious disease in the country. Their bodies were cremated by the authorities despite protests from relatives.

 

"The corpse of a person who has died or is suspected to have died, of ... COVID-19 shall be cremated," Health Minister Tabitha Wanniarachchi said on Sunday. The decision has also been criticized by rights groups.
