UK: Labour vil fjerne 350.000 døde fra historisk kirkegård for at give muslimer en gravplads

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.

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.”
