Bodies are burnt yes.. like cremated as in everywhere. There are such options even in USA and even many christians opt for it.

As for women being burnt, hasn't happened since a long time.. Longer than since your DEVELOPED west burnt witches on the stake.. nope.

And if if is that disgusting, why send your mum over? You must be a good son and tell her not to go to such disgusting places where she might be burnt god forbid.. I mean you love her no?

IMHO a better touring option might be saudi, iran, syria, yemen, afghanistan etc where women are rather well taken care of.

btw That was NOT the only place where women were burnt in olden times and neither was husband's death the ONLY reason for women being burnt in those days or for that matter in quite recent times. You guys really do not put any effort to educate yourself katto.. :D
