Burial at sea angers Muslim scholars

This is just one of many reports of Muslims whining about Osama not getting a proper burial in the ground according to Islamic tenets.  Well, the USA is a secular country and not required to adhere to Islamic law in any way.  They should just be glad a Muslim said the proper prayers over Osama's miserable corpse before he was turned into fish food.


Burial at sea angers Muslim scholars

Top Muslim scholars said Islam is opposed to burials at sea like the one Osama bin Laden received on Monday after being shot dead in a U.S. operation in Pakistan.

The United States says bin Laden received Muslim religious rites, but his body was "eased" into the Arabian Sea so that no one can build a shrine on his grave.

"If it is true that the body was thrown into the sea, then Islam is totally against that," said Mahmud Azab, an adviser to Sheik Ahmed al-Tayeb, the grand imam of Al-Azhar, the top Sunni Muslim authority.

A senior U.S. defence official said that U.S. forces administered Muslim religious rites for bin Laden aboard an aircraft carrier on Monday in the Arabian Sea, after he was shot dead in a raid on his Pakistan villa.
