TENNESSEE: Murfreesboro’s much-hated mega-mosque now facing court challenge against proposed cemetery
Plaintiffs opposed to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro graveyard approval seek a court order ‘to halt the construction of Muslim cemetery’ where corpses are buried in shrouds only without caskets.
DNJ The plaintiffs will take their case about the ICM cemetery before Chancellor Robert Corlew III at 1 p.m March 24 at the Rutherford County Judicial Building. He’s the same judge who ruled by June 2012 that the county failed to provide adequate public notice before approving the ICM site plan May 24, 2010, to build a larger center on Veals Road off Bradyville Pike to replace a much smaller one on Middle Tennessee Boulevard near South Church Street.
Since then, higher state courts have over-ruled Corlew, but the plaintiffs in that case seek an appeal before the U.S. Supreme Court.
