Why Kinnar Funeral takes place at Midnight and No one is allowed to see it

The Indian Kinnar (Eunuch) typically known as Hijras is a secretive society carrying their separate cult rituals. Even today, we didn’t comprehend Kinnar’s properly, their traditions are dissimilar from the oppressed earth. No one exactly knows about their cremation. But today we will describe to you some of their customs-

In Indian, we must have an encounter with Kinnars during an auspicious event when they appear in considerable crowds jigging, singing, and showering heartfelt blessings on the occasion as their prayer is considered as a good omen in Indian rituals. Kinnars just reach our place to offer us blessings and head back to their world with the money we provide them. They have barely noticed celebrating any festival or participating in any carnival. The traditions of Hijra’s are anonymous to others and entrance to their society is highly defended, so are their funeral services.

It’s being felt in India that the Kinnars may hold some spiritual energy, which drives them to recognize their demise. Occasionally few days before their death, the Kinnar discontinues eating and sipping and spends their last hours just drinking water. And during this duration, he doesn’t like to go anywhere rather they pray for themselves while dying and for the further Kinnars that they should not be born in the following life.

Before the final ceremonies are conducted, the Kinnar who is killed is beaten with shoes and brooms before burying them. This approach is a sentence for any ill-doing the eunuch had done, so his spirit stands apparent of accounts. And also, that in the following life, Kinnar should take birth as a full human.

The deceased Kinnar is not carried on the four shoulders for the funeral but they cause him to stand and then take him for the cremation. The Kinnars from around reaches to seek blessings from the starved Kinnar as it is assumed that Kinnars are extremely effective at the moment of their demise.

Kinnars funeral takes place at midnight and no one is permitted to witness it at all. The remains are covered in a white cloak and water from any sacred river is poured into the corpse’s mouth. The dead body of the Kinnar is buried rather than burning. They are never cremated; besides, they are always laid to rest in graves. After the Kinnar’s death, for a week, fellow Kinnar’s keep a fast and pray for the solitude of his soul and the departed to be born as a normal person in the next birth. Kinnar does not get unfortunate about the death of their fellow Kinnar, but rather, they feel delighted. There is an opinion that after the death of the Kinnar, his soul has got autonomy from this life which is not less than misery for him.

The Kinnars believe that if any stranger witnesses the Kinnar who passes, then he would again take rebirth as a Kinnar in his subsequent life. In India, Kinnars are glimpsed with an evil eye, but this must not be the subject as they are also human beings like us. Thus, we should likewise deliver equal rights to Kinnars. They too have sorrow and despair. Despite their lives being more painful as compared to normal human beings.
