Ranchi: Conversion from a tribal to Christianity in Durula village under Tonto police station area of West Singhbhum in Jharkhand became overwhelming for a family. After the death of a man in a converted Christian family, the tribal community did not allow the body to be buried in Sasan Diri, the cemetery of the tribal 'Ho Samaj.' Finally, the Christian family had to bury the body in the courtyard of their house.
The incident is said to have taken place today on Tuesday when the case took such a toll in the search for the body to be buried after the death of a man that the police finally had to intervene, and the body could be buried in the courtyard of the house after a long gap of 40 hours. In Durula village, the 'Ho community' refused to allow the Christian family to bury the body in their Sasan Diri, cemetery. The 'Ho Community' said that the bodies of the converted family would not be allowed to be buried in the Sasan Diri cemetery according to the descendants.
In fact, as soon as the Christian family started digging in the Sasan Diri cemetery to bury the body, protests started from the other side. The villagers informed the people of the tribal 'Ho Samaj' Youth General Assembly. It was agreed to hold a meeting in the village to resolve the dispute. In the meeting, it was decided not to allow the body to be buried in the Sasan Diri (cemetery) site of the 'Ho Community.' Yet the matter did not calm down. The family decided to bury the body in the courtyard of the house after rescue from the police.
