Grandfather's body could be exhumed after relatives of Muslim buried alongside complain he was an unbelieverQuote Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, could be dragged into a messy legal battle after a Muslim family demanded that a ?non-believer? who was buried next to their relation be exhumed for religious reasons.The unnamed Muslim family raised objections after an 89-year-old Roman Catholic man was buried in a plot adjacent to their relation(snip) His family later received notice that relations of the man buried alongside him had complained because Mr Smith was not an adherent of the Islamic faith.Islamic religious authorities say that it is forbidden for non-Muslims to be buried alongside Muslims under normal circumstances.Mr Smith?s family have now been warned by town hall officials that Mr Smith?s grave may be moved. this is absurd, and sounds like the sort of thing that should have been discussed before the muslim was buried in the first place.However distressing it is to the muslim family to have an infidel next to their deceased relative, it is also distressing to the relatives of the infidel to have their loved one dug up and reburied.The obvious solution is to move the muslim
