Germany has strict cemetery policies, but it’s no real surprise that Muslims are being granted exemptions from the rules, so that everything in the Muslim section of the cemetery can be strictly halal.

Muslims do not want to be buried next to Christians, but social money from unbelievers is gladly accepted
April 2, 2017
In Germany the number of burials increases according to the rules of the Islamic faith. Whereas “those who have lived here longer” [PC or Merkelish way of saying ethnic Germans = white people] have to respect the rigid design possibilities of the cemetery management, the lease is limited to 25 years, and the extension of the retirement is associated with expensive fees, the special wishes of Muslims regarding burial according to the rules of their faith in Germany become more and more extensive: To be buried without a coffin, just in a cloth, the dead facing towards Mecca, and more and more the call for eternal peace of the graveyards, as is customary in their home countries. One would think the integration should work at least in the cemetery, if at all? Certainly not, because Muslims also show their intolerance in the graveyard, and don’t accept the burial of Muslims next to Christians, but they don’t have a problem taking welfare from the unbelievers.
More and more Muslims are being buried in Germany, increasingly according to their own conditions. The requirements for a burial are to be found in fatwas, which are intended to clarify religious or legal questions and are more of a doctrine than a fixed ruling.
A dozen men stand next to the grave at the Twelve Apostle Cemetery in Berlin and are yelling in Arabic, while wildly gesticulating, that a Muslima is slated to lie only four paces away from Christian remains — they don’t want to accept that.
