Janazah is a Muslim funeral ritual that involves an individual being buried a certain number of hours following their death. TMZ reports that PnB Rock‘s mother is adamant about getting her son’s body right away for this reason. She also allegedly objected to an autopsy, saying that it was against her religious beliefs; however, one was required to be conducted by law.
TMZ reports that the body has been ready to ship out since Friday.
PnB Rock was shot and killed on Monday at a Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles restaurant in Los Angeles while dining out with his girlfriend. Police are still investigating the incident and have yet to arrest any suspects.
Meen mourned the loss of his brother on social media after news of his passing began to spread.
