THREE times as many Muslims are in prison than 15 years ago â€” sparking fears that jails could become a hotbed of radicalisation.
The number rocketed from 3,700 in 1997 to 11,250 last summer.
The rate of increase isÂ EIGHTÂ times faster than that of the overall prison population.
It means 13 per cent of lags in our jails are now Muslim, compared to just six per cent in 1997.
