A burial of corona virus victim scenes was too much terrifying, it was horrific, the air filled with fear and terror, as the fear of an unseen and unfelt enemy that evade every barrier, respects no border, regard no age, gender or religion.
The coffin of the deceased along with his ill fated father shifted through an ambulance from Peshawar for burial. The vehicle was parked, at a distance away from the mourners and they were not allowed to go beyond a specific point. Even his father, who was layered in protective clothes.
Allowed to get off the ambulance as to bid farewell and offer the funeral prayer, there were only six people included Imam and they wept helplessly in pain and sorrow throughout the prayer. The burial process was itself heart wrenching, the Rescue officials were reluctant to touch the coffin, it was decided to pull the coffin from the ambulance with help of ropes but no one was willing to tie the coffin. His father volunteered. This sight was so painful, a feeble sobbing father tieing the coffin of his son.
During the burial process, a large number of victim relatives, neighbors, mourners standing there as mere spectators. That’s the story of how the final goodbyes were said amidst pain and trauma. It appeared as if the impalpable tiny virus was powerful enough to annihilate them all.
Rescue official dragged the coffin with the help of ropes from the ambulance into the grave and the unfortunate father was later shifted to the quarantine facility.
A story compiled from the source of Social Media user Farhan Khan, he wrote painful words about the buried of corona virus victim. Burial without the presence of loved one? Practically, it’s too difficult, image no one around to recite the last prayers as the body was lowered to the resting place.
