Pitch Tunnel Vision / The Star and the Crescent

Successive U.S.governments told us for years that terrorist groups Al-Qaeda and Islamic State are "un-Islamic" and have “nothing to do with Islam”, and then gave their respective leaders Osama Bin Laden and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi burials at sea affording them religious rites according to Islamic custom.

Confused? So am I.

maybe to avoid giving these guys a known resting place for adorators to visit

Emad and Fadi, thanks for confirming my suspicion on this,
i find it strange the 2 similar stories have the same pseudo-"islamic ritual" ending

Good one.

Nice cartoon, Pete! and the answer to dear NEMØ: in Islam, the deceased must be buried in an underground pit, and may not be dumped into the sea because the tomb condition is to be a pit below ground level. But if the dead cannot be buried in the ground, such as dying in a ship at sea, and can not wait for his body to reach the coast, in this case is authorized to bury in the water of necessity.

Reference to Al Baghdadi's burial at sea with "religious rites according to Islamic custom" are in this link below. Basically just means they dropped his remains in the sea and a Muslim chaplain prayed over the remains and administered last rites according to Islamic custom. I have other news report links as to Bin Laden's burial at sea.
Thanks for voting.

Nice work dear Pete , & answering dear Nemo : No , there is no such thing in Islam , burial should be only on land , sea burial is not known to Muslims as far as I know .
