There isn’t enough land to bury the dead in KL. Do we have to dig up old graves now?

This would mean if you were to dig a grave and bury someone on a random land that's not a cemetery, you're at risk.

Graves at super old cemeteries can be REUSED! :-O. When we talk about land scarcity to bury the deceased, we can't help but to think of our kiasu neighbour aka Singapore.

For those who memang have to bury the dead like the Muslims, because cremation is strictly prohibited in Islam, the Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan actually allows graves at old cemeteries to be reused.

You can see the result in the opening of the KL-Karak Cemetery, one of the largest Muslim cemeteries in KL. As for non-Muslims, public cemeteries in KL and PJ have been practicing.

While researching for this story, we can't help but to point out how land scarcity issues to bury the dead may not even be a problem for everyone in Malaysia.
