Prisoners under pressure to convert to Muslim ‘gang’


Prisoners are under pressure to convert to an Islamic “gang” at a high-security jail, with non-Muslims in fear of violence just for cooking bacon, according to an official report.

Inmates at HMP Whitemoor told researchers commissioned by the Ministry of Justice that they changed their faith for protection or because they were bullied into it.

Prison guards said they had a policy of “appeasement” towards the powerful and growing Islamic population, particularly convicted terrorists who were feared to be recruiting future extremists.

Non-believers avoided confrontation with any Muslim in case it led to retribution from the wider group, and said they even avoided cooking pork or bacon in communal kitchens or undressing in the showers in case it caused offence.

The report, written by researchers at the Cambridge Institute of Criminology, said: “Conflict and tension existed between and within faith groups.

“There were some intimidating ‘heavy players’ among the Muslim population, who appeared to be orchestrating prison power dynamics rather than propagating or following the faith. Many physically powerful prisoners ‘re-established their outside identities’ as leaders in the prison and used their (newly acquired) faith status as a tool for establishing influence.

  1. Other religions (such as Christianity) will convert criminals but only if they repent and try to change their ways. Islam, on the other hand, doesn’t care who it converts. A violent criminal can convert to Islam, just by quoting the ‘magic words’. In fact Muslims prefer converts who are violent or are thieves, because they are more suitable to jihadi activities.
    No wonder the prison system is ripe for the picking!

  2. Intimidation and violence are “following the faith” and a means of “propagating… the faith.

    p.s. Unrelated, but wow, a hand holding an upraised knife, above a shower curtain? Nice Psycho reference Sweet Captcha.

  3. The non Moslem criminals are at the best already partially alienated from their society, at worst totally alienated. This makes them easy pickings for the Moslems.

    The guards policy of appeasement needs to be stopped and the Moslems punished for their attacks on others.
