Announcement from the Bradford Council of Mosques:

31st January 2017

Bradford Council removes the cost of using new digital autopsy system.

Council for Mosques welcomes the decision by the Bradford Council to remove the cost for the use of   non-invasive digital autopsy for all residents. The new facility was made available to Bradford by the Malaysia based company IGene that has developed the Digital autopsy described as the revolutionary new generation of post-mortem investigation, offering 3D digital body reconstructions

The service, at the Public and Forensic Mortuary in Burnham Avenue was officially opened in 2014 by then Bradford Council’s deputy leader Cllr Imran Hussain. The Bradford facility was the second to open in the UK as part of a £50 million investment from iGene for a network of 18 Centres across the UK.

The location of new facility in Bradford was at the time was welcomed  by the political, faith and community leadership as respecting local religious and cultural sensibilities.

However, the use of the new facility entailed substantial cost which was subsequently found to be prohibitive. Now this cost has been removed from the families which is was a right and proper things thing to do.

Mohammed Rafiq Sehgal, President of Council for Mosques, “This is a welcomed news after months of considerations. I would like to thank Bradford Council, the coroner’s office, and other stakeholders for understanding and taking on board the concerns of the community.

“We manage the two Muslim cemeteries in Bradford. The decision to make the facility available to families free of cost would be greatly welcomed by all”.
