The Hindu community faces a problem with scattering of ashes after cremation. According to Hindu custom, ashes should be immersed in a river but Canadian conservation authorities have objected to the ritual citing potential hazard to the ecosystem.Christian? I don't think ecological regulations are just quite an extension of the Christian faith, more just a protection of the common good. It would already be absurd to accommodate such a practice, but lets just bring this to its logical end. There's another Hindu ritual called Sati. Here, when a bride outlives her husband naturally, she is burned to death on the pyre of his cremation. This still goes on today.
'Everything is geared to the Christian tradition, but the rules are outdated. They have to change because the demographics have changed,' Roopnath Sharma, a priest at the Shri Ram Mandir temple in Mississauga, was quoted as saying by The Star newspaper.
How about we accommodate that one too?
