    Grandfather's body could be exhumed after relatives of Muslim buried alongside compla

    Grandfather's body could be exhumed after relatives of Muslim buried alongside complain he was an unbeliever
    Local authority in Leicestershire tells the family of Shadrack Smith, 89, he might be moved to another plot after complaints from a Muslim family

    Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, could be dragged into a messy legal battle after a Muslim family demanded that a “non-believer” who was buried next to their relation be exhumed for religious reasons.
    The unnamed Muslim family raised objections after an 89-year-old Roman Catholic man was buried in a plot adjacent to their relation.
    Shadrack Smith was buried in the multi-denominational Lychgate Lane Cemetery in Burbage, Leicestershire, following his funeral on Jan 30.



    Mr Smith had lived in an official pikey camp in nearby Aston Firs for more than 20 years, and in excess of 400 relations and friends attended his funeral.

    His family later received notice that relations of the man buried alongside him had complained because Mr Smith was not an adherent of the Islamic faith.
    Islamic religious authorities say that it is forbidden for non-Muslims to be buried alongside Muslims under normal circumstances.
    Mr Smith’s family have now been warned by town hall officials that Mr Smith’s grave may be moved.
    If Burbage parish council decides to overrule Mr Smith’s family’s wishes, it would fall to Mr Grayling’s Ministry of Justice to approve the application to exhume and relocate his remains.
    His family, which includes eight children, 25 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren, have vowed to fight “tooth and nail” to stop any exhumation taking place.

    The Muslim folk, full of confidence from ruling England and our PC laws, will be getting a rather nasty shock when they find out what Pikey vengeance is...

    If it's a multi-denominational cemetery, there should be no complaints about the beliefs of other residents - unless there are already sections marked off for different faiths and non-faith corpses. In the latter case it would be an error, in the former case all should live and let live, or rather, err, let them all rest in peace. Once they are dead, they have no faith.

    I had to fit a new sewer line in from a house to the mains some years ago because the houseowner didn't want his sewerage contaminated by non believers before it arrived in the mains. The owners religion was 'Plymouth Brethren'.

    So these schizophrenics cannot even get along with others in death. If Allah wants to complain, maybe he should do so.

    Allah, suck my balls, or strike me dead if you're real and don't want me saying that.

    Yea I'm sane, maybe too sane, but if I were Muslim I'd be asking myself why Allah never does anything for them. Sure didn't help them in the oil and so called terror wars.

    Someday the entire World needs to say "Hey God if you're real show up at noon in whatever place." When he doesn't show, abolish the nonsense of religion entirely. The only religion I believe in is science.

    ^^^ I have to agree with BobR post # 11 first sentence (leave out schizophrenics).

    If we can not live together in peace after we die - the how the hell are we going to accomplish anything near a peaceful resolution while we are topside of our graves ?

    In case of a preference towards cremation (which is 'un-Islamic' ...like the Jordanian pilot's immolation) , would a religious person argue that they don't want to be cremated before or after (in line prior or after) a person from another faith (possibly for fear of a leftover ash) ?

    A few years ago at an Irish Traveller's funeral in Co. Mayo, W Ireland, one chap inadvertently trod on the edge of an old Pikey lady's grave, as he moved in the crowd thronging around the newly deceased's interment.

    That move immediately erupted into a holy hell of a family feud in the bone orchard,..shovels and pieces of masonry (headstones) were brandished flailed around and hurled, along with curses, kicks and caterwauls.

    The "gardi sit in the corner"arrived, whacking every traveller they could get to grips with.

    End result was a few Travellers got banged up for the night in the local watch-house and another legend was born.

    If them allawallas don't leave the Pikies alone, sure sh*t will hit the fan,...Pikies hafta B the #1 bottom end in the ratings in British social structure, lower than raghead/ towel head/ allawallas and niggas, so got nothing, and nothing to lose.

    I'm backing the Pikies.

    Of course not.

    Go read the OP. It says :

    It seems very strange to be in an article. As you point out, it would more likely be an "official travellers camp".......

    One has to get tired on minorities always creating histrionics and trying to garner attention by complaining about non issues for the majority.

    If the relatives of the Muslim man buried alongside him don't want him there next to the "non-believer", then why don't they simply and quietly move their relative?

    Heard recently of a Muslim in Thailand who went to the mosque and denounced Islam three times so he could marry a Buddhist. He has not been threatened with death or stoned or..

    So much BS with Islam and how they are so special.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    Those who cannot change their mind, cannot change anything.

    Exactly, so if these werdo's have got a problem with one of their relatives being buried in a neighboring plot to an infidel, fine- let them exhume the remains and move them to a nice muzzie cemetery. Otherwise, shaddap.
