Does Muslim arrogance have no limits?
A recently buried 89-year-old grandfather may have to be exhumed in the United Kingdom because Muslims object to their deceased family member being next to an infidel.
After more than 400 people showed up at the funeral of Shadrack Smith, who was interred on Jan. 30, the family were forwarnedÂ that Smithâ€™s grave may have to be moved despite them paying Â£2,500 pounds for three plots in a â€œmulti-faithâ€ Lychgate Lane Cemetery in Burbage, Leicestershire.
A Muslim family is demanding that Smithâ€™s body be moved and the local council will meet to decide the matter. He was buried facing his home in the Romany gipsy tradition.
After the funeral, the principal officer of the council wrote to his family asking if his body could be moved and hedge planted between his grave and a Muslim grave, according to the UK Telegraph and Inforwars.
â€œThis whole thing has devastated our family,â€ Smithâ€™s daughter-in-law, Tracey Smith, told The Telegraph.
â€œWe were told when we bought the plots that it was a multi-faith cemetery and it is, but the council has been so unsupportive,â€ she added, noting how, â€œthe council has tried to bend over backwards to please the Muslim family.â€
â€œWe have been told we might have to exhume Shady if the council decide to side with them. There is no way Shady will be exhumed. If they suggest it, we will take them to the highest court in the land. We will fight tooth and nail to stop the grave being dug up.â€
Muslim shariaÂ law says Muslims and non-Muslims cannot be buried next to each other.
Richard Flemming, the council chairman, said: â€œUnfortunately the parish council has recently received representation from two families regarding the allocation of adjacent grave plots within Burbage Cemetery.
â€œThe parish council is sympathetic to the feelings of both families concerned and is committed to working with the relatives and the wider community to reach an amicable and acceptable solution.â€
Author and commentator Pamela Geller, who was banned from entering the UK in 2013 over her vehement criticism of radical Islam, says the story highlights how the United Kingdom is being subsumed by the creeping imposition of Sharia law.
â€œThe cemetery should have kicked these vicious ghouls out â€” but instead, a beloved figure faces exhumation. Death apartheid.â€
â€”Pamela Geller, Stop Islamization of America
â€œThe cemetery should have kicked these vicious ghouls out â€” but instead, a beloved figure faces exhumation. Death apartheid,â€Â comments Geller, who notes that the rules for the cemetery make no mention of segregation based on religion.
â€œThe UK is gone. My banning pales next to what we are witnessing in that once-great nation,â€ she wrote. â€œEither they will just go quietly, subsumed by Islam, or there will be a civil war. I suspect the former.â€
â€œItâ€™s like the world is under some sort of evil spell,â€ notes Geller, asking if â€œseventh-century apartheid and shariaâ€ is about to be imposed in the UK.
