Naz Shah MP thanks Imams Online’s senior editor, Imam Qari Asim MBE during her speech in the Parliament for playing his important role in achieving an amendment to the COVID-19 Emergency Bill, which referenced cremation of an individual in some cases (At 2 mins 40 seconds into her speech).
British Muslims are grateful to the Government for being responsive to the concerns of the Muslim and Jewish communities and allowing individuals to be buried according to their religion and belief even in these extremely critical times.
The Government Minister, Penny Modaunt, has reassured the communities by saying “I can see no circumstances where anyone would be cremated against their wishes”.
