      I'm relatively liberal and all but that is poor. You cannot just take the p*ss like that. If they wanted to be 100% sure then they should not have buried their relative in a multi-denominational cemetery. It is reasonably foreseeable that, being a country that is Christian (at the last census 59.4% declared themselves Christian, whilst only 5% declared themselves Muslim), you will end up being buried next to someone who identifies themselves as a Christian.
      If their religion does have such strict burial rules then why are they not burying their relative on an Islamic burial side??

      I wouldn't get too outraged. No chance in hell this will happen. So many "mights", "coulds" and "ifs" in that article.

      That said, if the Muslim family had such strong feelings about this you'd think they might not have chosen a MULTI FAITH cemetery in which to bury their loved ones eh...

      I think I like to see this letter from the parish council or whoever before I take that seriously. Then even if it were true and the ministry turned it down - which they obviously would - the council would have some serious questions to be asked of it.
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      ....waits to see who will be the first to offer any defence of the complainants family, or who denounces the story as right wing sensationalism.....

      I think there are lots of inaccuracies and right wing propaganda in that story.

      Read the end of the article and see that the land has been set aside solely for Muslim burials.

      Perhaps if the local council in question hadn't sold off its land for £££ then the gentleman from the traveller community would have had a plot within an appropriate area.

      Well spotted. Maybe you could start a petition to help the travelling community? Another example of Council incompetence.

      I'm an atheist and I'd hate to think I had to share a graveyard with religious folk. They'd do my head in rambling on on their way to the afterlife.
      now my friends have gone,
      and my hair is grey,
      and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      I couldn't see that either. Wait for the councils official communique Bushy and don't get ahead of yourself. If it's true then I'm sure the gypsy families can move in to the graveyard in their hundreds, set up home, leave a mess and stop any exhumations.
