Rock Hill zoning board axes SC Muslim cemetery
by Andrew Dys
After a contentious public hearing where several residents opposed a Muslim cemetery in a Rock Hill neighborhood – including one woman who admitted she was not being "politically correct" or "nice" but said she was scared of what would go on inside a proposed Muslim cemetery fence – the cemetery was shot down Tuesday night by the city's zoning board of appeals.
The decision drew short applause from a packed City Council chambers filled with people against the cemetery.
Muslim leaders were dismayed by not just the vote but what they said seemed like prejudice against Muslims.
