‘Grave’ Situation Haunts Burial Grounds

COVID has hit people of all communities and denominations. While the Hindus are facing severe problems with regards to high fees being fleeced for cremation rituals, the Muslims are facing no different fate. 


In their case, they are finding it difficult to find a proper burial space for their kith and kin. With fatalities increasing by the day, they are being forced to run around many people before they can get a space for their departed. Even then, the price is nothing less than Rs 20,000, and at times, it is even more. 


What is worse is many are finding it hard to believe that even burial grounds are being claimed to be private properties, and money is being taken to give space. Some of the properties are under the state Wakf Board, but here too, the situation is the same. The poor are having to run from pillar to post to find a burial space, while the rich who can afford to shell out money are getting things done quickly. 


Distraught by the situation, a social activist tweeted about the plight of the minister, KT Rama Rao, Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, chief secretary Somesh Kumar and City police commissioner Anjani Kumar Yadav. 


Another lady advocate had to face a lot of problems before she could lay her relative to rest. But after the burial, the graveyard is yet to give a certificate, which is crucial for getting a valid death certificate from GHMC. 


Social activists who are working with the poor cite many examples when the relatives have had to strike deals with local leaders, MLAs or corporator for a resting place for their kith and kin. 


However, Mohammad Saleem, chairman of the Wakf Board, has warned the graveyard committees against taking bribes for graves. He reiterates that if he gets complaints, action will be taken immediately.
