I'm pretty sure there will be enough revenge repercussions as is, and burial at see is perfectly acceptable for Islamic matters as the 24 hour requirement is fulfilled (consider being at sea and away from land by more than a day) while also eliminating possible burial locations becoming a type of shrine and focal point. Sure, this could be a fake, but it could also be true and avoid additional problems with a body that could be accessed and turned into holy items such as pieces of saints (reliquaries) in the Catholic religion being given to cathedrals and such. Having nothing solid to honor while burial in acceptable manner might just save a few extra lives.

Im sure there probably isnt anything in their practice about being buried at sea. Im also guessing the burial within 24 hours part is correct. All I know is I read it, posted it earlier on another thread because I didnt want to start a new one, and then I discovery it is now gone from the article. I just find that curious. and like I mentioned earlier, Fox is supposedly reporting it as well, I just can't seem to bring it up. Not that I am a Fox fan mind you.
edit: Now I got it to come up
