Poisoned spy Litvinenko to be buried according to Muslim traditions

The body of the former officer of the Federal Security Bureau (FSB), Alexander Litvinenko, who died in London over polonium-210 poisoning on November 23 has been delivered to his relatives for funeral. The information was received Tuesday from British sources, Itar-Tass reports.

British experts, who conducted the postmortem examination of Litvinenko’s body, said the funeral ceremony should be held as soon as possible. For the time being it is not clear which kind of the service will be organized for Litvinenko in terms of religious canons – either Christian or Muslim.

Walter Letvinenko, the father of the deceased FSB officer, said that his son was thinking about converting to Islam. “He had those questions, he was thinking about that. I came to visit him at the hospital and said that I put a candle for him in a church and prayed for his soul. He replied that he wanted to be buried according to Muslim traditions. I said that his will would be fulfilled. There is another Muslim person in our family. My daughter is married to a Muslim man. The most important thing for us is to believe in God. There is one God. Human life should not be based on satanic laws – that’s what’s important,” Walter Litvinenko said.

In connection with Alexander Litvinenko’s alleged admission of Islam, a website of Chechen terrorists posted a message which said that a Muslim priest had conducted all traditional rituals before Litvinenko’s death. The statement on the website also said that Alexander Litvinenko wanted Chechen Mujahideens to know that he was his brother in arms.
