In an attempt to console the grieving attendees, the pastor callously suggested that those mourning should join Jaber Nyar Onagi in the grave if they thought they were truly distressed by her passing.

“If this has pained you so much, then enter the grave and be buried with her,” he said.

The pastor's words were met with immediate backlash from the mourners, who perceived his remarks as disrespectful and hurtful.

Some attendees openly challenged the pastor's insensitivity and demanded that he leave the funeral if he was unwilling to offer genuine comfort to those in mourning.

Voices in the crowd condemned the pastor's behavior as abusive and negative, urging him to depart from the ceremony.

“You have not spoken well. This pastor is abusive. Let him go. He has been this negative all through," one of the mourners said.

Some individuals attempted to confront him while others sought to restore calm to the situation.
