In brief: Suttee . . . Tantrums . . . Bank diktats . . . EU egos
I have just read Ian O'Doherty's article about the Hindu man in the UK who demanded and has been granted the right to go down in flames on a pyre upon his death (Irish Independent, February 11).
If this is a man who is serious about his religion, then the English really should have insisted his wife fulfil the act of suttee by joining him on that same funeral pyre.
