Coronavirus Bill

Coronavirus Bill is being heard in the House Commons on Monday and will be discussed in the House of Lords on Tuesday. Like other Muslims Lord Sheikh is deeply concerned about the possibility of cremation of the deceased which may happen under Section 27 of the Coronavirus Bill.

Lord Sheikh will be looking for clarification from the Minister regarding the Clause in the Bill and will table a suitable amendment if necessary. Islam does not allow cremation and Verse 20.55 in the Holy Quran states this point.

Lord Sheikh has spoken to Mosques and Muslim Organisations who have indicated willingness to work with Local Authorities in order to find effective solution. 

If you have any pertinent comments please send them to Lord Sheikh at sheikhm@parliament.uk
