In this http://youtu.be/VcGgqr95eew talk-show at Sangat Television’s London Studio, Harbans Singh and Dr Amarnath Kakkar, both experts on Afghanistan, discussed the Cremation Issues faced by minorities in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Kabul, 16th November 2012
The dead body of Mrs Hari Kaur, resident of Shorbazar who passed away was taken to the Cremation Grounds in Qalacha-e-Ben-e-Hesar locality of Kabul for cremation. Residents of the neighbourhood where the Cremation Ground is located did not allow the cremation to take place.
Sikhs & Hindus once again demonstrated and only under Police protection and with media attention the cremation took place at 4 PM local time. Sikhs and Hindus along with their representatives and Afghan civilian government have yet to find a permanent solution to this pressing problem.
