Malik’s Body is Yet to Be Claimed

The body of Tashfeen Malik remains unclaimed at a morgue, meaning it could soon be cremated.  Cremation is strictly prohibited in Islam.  Along with her husband Syed Farook, Malik shot and killed 14 people at a Christmas party in San Bernardino, California.

Farook’s family in the US is expected to claim his body soon, but Malik’s is unlikely to be claimed anytime soon.  Both bodies have already broken the strictest interpretation of sharia law – that the body must be buried within 24 hours of death.
