Do you need to be told first? They are going to splash tax payers money at the funeral whiles there are hospitals with patients being treated on benches and bare floor.

I say erhh this people are just incredible. Herrhh life hard

All we need is life and we will witness the funeral of his mom tomorrow. They are the same people telling us to abide with the COVID-19 protocols but you’ll see how they will crowd themselves tomorrow at the funeral and splash out tax payers money there

Muslims usually have a moderate and simple funeral performance rites. Within some few minutes, the body is laid to rest and life goes on. There won’t be overcrowding and celebration accompanied with drinking, dancing and and making merry in Islamic funeral so the protocols , I believe will be observed properly .

Yeah that’s one thing Christians needs to learn from Muslims. There are Christian families that are drowned deeply in dept because of the way they perform their funerals rites. Going in for loans to prepare foods and buying of drinks, hiring of pall-bearers to dance with the dead body in the coffin, overcrowding and dancing to music’s neglecting COVID-19 protocols and they finally ends up in a total dept as well. I’m very sure the COVID-19 protocols would be observed since Muslims do have a simple funeral rites.
