This case caused a stir in December: a Muslim was cremated by mistake in a crematorium in Hanover. But now the story is even more dramatic: the 71-year-old is said to have been killed by his own son.
This case shocked people in Germany and even caused a scandal with Turkey! The crematorium of the Medical University in Hanover had burned the body of a Turkish citizen in December – probably by mistake. Cremation is forbidden in the Muslim faith, and the family was shocked.
But now the case takes another, dramatic turn: As the “Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung” reports, the 71-year-old is said to have been killed by his own son.
The newspaper’s report said the man’s 37-year-old son was homeless and had a drinking problem. On December 13, 2022, he was nevertheless invited to dinner with his family. But the mood is said to have changed. When the 71-year-old Turk wanted to throw his son out of the apartment, he grabbed a heavy object and hit his father on the head with it. He is said to have died as a result. According to the “Hannoversche Allgemeine”, the police are now investigating for bodily harm resulting in death.
