DENIAL OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL

All of us came through same door and exit the same door. Decent burial is a human right. Denial of burial ground is denial of Human Right. Mrs. Rita of Leingangching village at Litan in Ukhurl district died on 9th August 2017. But she was denied of Christian burial ground by her village authority because she became Catholic. She is the third person who died from this Leingangching Tangkhul village. 

All the Catholic schools in the state of Manipur were shut down on 11/8/2017 in protest against this human right (Christian Burial ground). All the Catholics led by priests and nuns protested silently. This is injustice.
