Plans To Dig Up Historic London Gravesites, For Muslim Burial Sites

Anger over plan to dig up 350,000 bodies in historic London cemetery for Muslim burial site.

Under threat: Historic Tower Hamlets Cemetery Park could be dug up to make way for a 21st century ‘multi faith’ burial site

It is a peaceful resting place for 350,000 souls – an historic graveyard which now serves as a nature reserve.

But plans are afoot to dig up the ancient graves at Tower Hamlets Cemetery – and reopen it as a 21st century burial site.

Officially it would be known as a “multi-faith” cemetery but it is likely that it would principally answer calls for a Muslim graveyard in the largely-Asian East London borough.

The local newspaper has been bombarded with letters from historians and nature lovers declaring: “There is no way we’ll allow them to dig up our ancestors.”

But the Labour-controlled council’s environment spokesman Abdal Ullah appeared to be in no doubt about the feasibility of the plan when he said: “To preserve the respect and dignity for everyone, I think most of the graves would have to be cleared out and we’d start afresh.”

He said a corner of the cemetery would be reserved for Muslims who are buried in shrouds at a depth of 6ft and on their side facing Mecca. Source.

    Now I’ve heard everything. They blow up our cities and we kow-tow to them. When is the West going to learn when it is time to put the hammer down.

    Hello Paul and welcome.

    You pose a great question. When exactly? It had better be soon.
    Did you happen to notice this excerpt?

    But the Labour-controlled council’s environment spokesman Abdal Ullah

    In my mind, it would be desecration of what should be respected burial plots. Other words leave them be.

    Here in Lancashire some grave sites have been turned into car parks. One more recent one was last used in the 1970’s for a burial, it was at Lee Lane Congregational Chapel Horwich, Bolton, the planning Dept. granted permission for it to be turned into parking spaces. These days few people seem to really care. Hope you manage to save yours.

    Hello Paul

    Welcome!

    Your news tears me up inside. Without giving up to much privacy. A branch of my family tree leads to Lancashire.
    So to me it is personal!
    Desecrating grave sites is evil beyond belief! Mark my words. Many will find their selves God smacked.
    What comes around goes around.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
