"It looks like a conspiracy that the judgement is given when I am in India for medical treatment. But I will not give up. I will ensure that Hindus are given a good death that is fundamental to their beliefs," Ghai, 70, said to media. The founder of Anglo-Asian Friendship Society (AAFS), Ghai said, "I don't want Hindus to be burnt in a crematorium at the Thames or at a football field. The final rites of Hindus must be done with dignity. They cannot be bundled in a box."
In his ruling on Friday, May 8 Justice Ross Crnaston said that the Cremation Act 1902 and its attendant regulations were clear in their effect: the burning of human remains, other than in a crematorium, is a criminal offence. However Ghai said that he will take the case to the Court of Appeal and also to the European Court of Human Rights. "This is a fight to the end," added Ghai.
