Hindus in Britain receive first permanent cremation ground after 50-year struggle


Share post:

Following a decades-old struggle and facing rejection earlier, the first purpose-build (permanent) cremation ground will now be constructed for the Hindus in Britain. For all the rituals of the last rites, a Hindu charity organization, Anupam Mission, had requested for this cremation ground to be constructed near the Swaminarayan Temple, and for around 5 decades, the Hindus carried out a movement for the same.

As a result, not only in Britain, but this is the first Hindu cremation ground in whole of Europe which will be made in Britain’s Buckinghamshire. As per the Anupam Mission, the construction of the cremation ground is taking place keeping in mind all the Hindu traditions. One dining hall, two waiting rooms, two ritual rooms, and one big hall will be made here. The Buckinghamshire Council permitted the construction of the cremation ground on the condition of 1500 trees to be planted by the Anupam Mission on its premises.

The community has asked the people for their help for the same, and from this year, the one sponsor-one tree campaign has been started.
