Muslims’ new deal on cemetery

A deal has been struck to end a long-running row over a site for a Muslim cemetery in Glasgow, it was revealed today.

Local mosques have accepted an offer from Glasgow City Council for a 31-acre plot close to Linn Cemetery, at Mid Netherton Farm.

The move ends a long campaign by residents of nearby Carmunnock who were furious a 30-acre site in their village had been earmarked for the new cemetery.

Bashir Maan, convener of the Muslim Council for Scotland, is hopeful the cemetery will be ready within months.

Rizwan Mohammed, who is on the Muslim committee for funerals, said: “We are employing some good architects and there will be a consultation process.”
