Pennsylvania township nixes proposed Islamic cemetery

SHAFAQNA – According to religionnews A rural Pennsylvania township has voted to reject an application for an Islamic cemetery, but supporters said on Tuesday (March 24) they will appeal the decision. The West Pennsboro Township Board of Supervisors turned down the proposed cemetery, citing residents’ concerns about groundwater contamination from coffinless burials and about potential declines in property values. The vote against the proposed 80-plot cemetery on an old farm site that would have served a congregation of Bosnian Muslims came at a meeting on Monday (March 23).
