Respected Baba Ghai,

It is our pleasure to congratulate your victory in the Court of Appeal victory on behalf of British Hindus and Hindu cremation rites. We are grateful for your praiseworthy efforts and sacrifices made in order to achieve this landmark victory for Hindu Sanatan Dharma, human rights and freedom of choice.

Hindu Sanatan Dharma respectfully embraces a wide range of beliefs, traditions and practices. Nevertheless, there is significant demand for designated funeral pyre cremations amongst our congregation and we are united in our support for this important cause.

The sanskara rituals of Hindu Sanatan Dharma form an ancient spiritual science, rigorously preserved in the hands of ritual pandits (Hindu clergy) and thrive throughout India and other enlightened countries across the world.

We urge central and local government authorities to collaborate constructively with you towards establishing designated sites where funeral pyre cremations can be performed safely, respectfully and responsibly.

It is an honour to stand with you in the cause and assist by any means in the future.

Yours sincerely,

Narendra Thakrar

Executive Chairman, Shri Sanatan Hindu Mandir

Respected Baba Ghai,

Congratulations on your historic legal victory in Britain’s Court of Appeal In February 2010, which for the first time ever has established the legal right of Hindus and Sikhs to receive open air cremation rites.

Your leadership, perseverance and sincere faith throughout the 4 year legal campaign have truly made history and deserve the very highest praise.

News of your unique achievement has resounded throughout India and is spoken about with great pride. There is no more fitting ambassador for the Hindu faith and your accomplishments will surely receive great blessings and support, both for the legal victory in the UK and for. successfully negotiating with the Government of Pakistan to open Hindi and Sikh cremation grounds in Pakistan in 2005.

On behalf of the Trust, please accept my profound admiration fur this. extraordinary achievement and please be assured that the Trust would be proud to o cr you any assistance now and with future Anglo Asian Friendship Society projects.

Yours sincerely,

Shital Vij
