Grave Concerns

The row over the new cemetery in Nottingham in which all headstones will face Mecca to accommodate Muslims grows.

The council has dismissed the complaints as "bordering on racism". However, let me remind you of what is happening. All graves will face Mecca in accordance with the minority Muslim tradition and the majority Christians will have to make special requests to have the gravestones aligned according to their tradition.

Truly this does border on racism, but against the Christian majority not the Muslim minority.
