Imagine not being allowed to bury your dead and wash it? rather your corpse made a exhibition for the entire town to watch for several
months well that is what happened to the main Suldaan/religious elder of the Habar Jeclo clan Sheikh Bashir.
"Sheikh Bashir escaped to Beer"
"By the government's humiliating treatment of Sheikh Bashir's corpse, which was denied burial, and exhibited in the center of the town"
[Sheikh Bashir was hanged in daylight, at a house near you,
His body torn out by bullets,
And still covered with wet blood,
They kicked and insulted him
Then watched him with contempt
When the unwashed body was thrown outside,
And refused burial.
After that humiliation episode famous Somali poet Xaaji Adan Af Qalooc recited the following.
"Duhur baa Bashiir lagu shanaqay, daar agtiina ahe, dahriga iyo laabtay rasaas, kaga daloosheene, isaga oo dem iyo dhiig leh, oo maro ku duu-duuban, dacsad iyo ahaaniyo cag baa, loogu sii daraye. dadkii uu nebcaa iyo kufirga, daawasho u yimide, meydkii oo Daahir ahayn, markii debedda loo tuuray, ee aaska loo diiday, waad wada dul joogteene."
