Reading up to the minute news on Friday, in the morgue of Narsapur Hospital, the body of three-month-old Gnathi Kishan from Kowdipally, was found gnawed by rats similar to the case when the body of 21-year-old U Madhu from Habeeb Nagar was chewed up in mortuary of Osmania Hospital on December 19, made me grief-stricken that how bad the body of a human being is being disrespected here whereas amongst all sort of mortals, human being is more ever eligible for respect and well behaviour rather than others, although he is deceased.
Islam, consequently, asks for laying it to rest in the lap of soul with all possible esteem even his cut nails and hair must be buried when he is alive too.
Hence, authorities concerned must be actives and make all efforts possible in order to their safekeeping from rats and other vermin.
