Dakota County judge rules in favor of Islamic cemetery
An Islamic cemetery will be allowed in Castle Rock Township after a Dakota County judge ruled that the township's efforts to block it were "arbitrary and capricious."
District Judge David Knutson granted a summary judgment last week that forces the Castle Rock Township board to issue a conditional-use permit for the cemetery, which would be built on 73 acres owned by the Al Maghfirah Cemetery Association.
"Justice was served, I believe," said Hyder Aziz, a cemetery association member. "I was really very pleased with the judge's orders."
