Pls pass this to colleagues on your list.
@theseuntexas: Dont take this as Cyber bully but why will you be selling shirts instead of giving it Out for free to People to show Love 4 her ..its better you dont make the shirts at all instead of profitting from another persons misfortune
@fattykotti: Sorry my tot though, why do you want to bury her like a xtian when she died a Muslim? Muslims don’t do lying in state, I think burial should take place same day corpse arrive and that should be it
Of course Yomi Fabiyi responded to one the numerous comments. He has this to say:
replying @theseuntexas: the family will of course appreciate if you are generous enough to sponsor the free distriibution sir. But with the ones they are doing is in moderation. Putting a price ensures control and ensures they recover funds spent on buying the shirt and printing so resources can be available for the deceased children and aged mother. Many thanks
Responding to why she won’t be buried on the same day:
reply to @fattykotti: nothing has suggested she will be buried in a particular religion even if lying in state is included ma. The family has decided they want to see her face before being lowered in any religious means.
