Muslims are forced to bury their dead inside homes

Muslim families are being forced to bury their departed in their homes due to lack of a burial ground in a village of Agra. As a result, the dead here are a constant part of day-to-day life and their houses have essentially turned into a graveyard. Women cook next to where their children were buried while the elderly rested on cots in a backyard full of graves. The village has over 50 Muslim families with a population of over 300 but there is no identified permanent place to bury the dead. Majority of these Muslim families are landless and the menfolk work as labourers in the city.
