HATE preacher Abu Hamza claimed his human rights were breached because he was served RUM ice cream in prison.
The hook-handed cleric, 50, said the sweet broke halal rules because it contained alcohol.
A source at top-security Belmarsh jail in Woolwich, South East London, said: “It’s utterly barmy and a massive over-reaction â€” most prisoners would see it as a treat.
“All he has to do is say he doesn’t fancy his pudding.”
Other notorious terrorists in the jail â€” including dirty bomber Dhiren Barot, 35 â€” have joined the protest.
It is backed by a website linked to controversial lawyer Mudassar Arani.
The site said: “Muslims were provided with rum ice cream. This obviously contains alcohol and therefore could not possibly be deemed compatible with the Islamic faith.”It also claimed that Muslims were given yoghurt containing traces of unsuitable products.
The site urged inmates to write to their MPs to complain their rights are being breached.
A prison source said last night: “Hamza spent his life urging fanatics to kill Jews and Christians yet has the gall to claim his rights are being abused over ice cream.”
A Prison Service spokesman said yesterday: “Regrettably, non-halal food was offered in error. It was quickly substituted with appropriate halal alternatives.”
