Islamic Burial Space
Andrew Pelling (Croydon Central, Independent)
I present this petition on Islamic burial spaces organised by Mr. Tahir Begg, the Muslim Association of Croydon, and Croydon mosques. Having campaigned on this issue since 2000, I am pleased to read the petition, which states:
The Petition of the people of Croydon and South London,
Declares that there is a severe shortage of burial space for the Islamic community.
The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to take steps to secure such burial space.
And the Petitioners remain, etc.
