The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) ordered the District Collector of Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu to take action against 'True Light Jesus Apostolic Church' located at Dharapuram, Tiruppur. The Church had denied the burial of poor Christian woman's dead body into its graveyard because she did not make any financial contribution to the Church.
NHRC received the complaint against the Church regarding the denial of the burial of poor woman's body into Church's graveyard. The complaint lodged by an NGO called Legal Rights Protection Forum. In the complaint, the forum said that it is the case of discrimination showed on the grounds of financial standards & violation of fundamental rights of a poor older woman.
NHRC accepted the complaint and ordered the District Collector of Tiruppur to take the necessary action against the Church within 8 weeks.
