A Grave Concern

(3/29/2014)

The body of a 53-year-old Balinese man, I Made Sukadana, was forcibly disinterred from the community cemetery at the village of Bilian, Kubutambahan in Buleleng, North Bali on Wednesday, March 26, 2014.

Members of the village undertook the disinterment 18 days after Sukudana’s burial when they decided the man was not entitled to a resting place in the village graveyard.

The remains of the man were removed from his grave and transported to Singaraja for cremation by a Hindu Welfare Association. The cost of the cremation was paid by the chief of the village of Bulian, I Gede Pasek.

The deceased, Made Sukadana, who died of natural causes in Bulian on March 6, 2014, was a single man who died apparently without any surviving family members. A “guest resident” of Bulian who never became of formal member of the village community, he lived from the charity of local residents who provided him food and accommodation.

Sukadana originally came to the village 15 years ago where he worked as a driver and stayed on to live with the family he once drove who provided him with housing and support.

The birthplace and home village of Sukadana is unclear.

After his death and burial, villagers in Bulian questioned the man’s entitlement to be buried in the village cemetery of a community to which he did not formally “belong” via Banjar membership.

Meanwhile, some Hindu leaders in North Bali have publicly regretted the hard line taken by the villagers of Bulian, insisting Balinese have an obligation to assist each other in spiritual and material matters.
