An MP has called for an urgent inquiry after it was revealed some 14% of all those behind bars are Muslim, up from 8% a decade ago. . . Fourteen prisons have a population that is at least a quarter Muslim, and at Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire 2 out of 5 prisoners are Muslim.
Half of the top 10 prisons with the highest Muslim populations are in London, including Belmarsh, where the percentage has risen since 2010 from 19 to 29 per cent, Brixton (24 per cent), Pentonville (28 per cent), Thameside (25 per cent) and Wormwood Scrubs (27 per cent).
The data was obtained by Sadiq Khan, the lawyer and shadow justice secretary who is himself a Muslim. He told the Evening Standard that an inquiry was vital to explain why the increase is happening.
Sadiq KhanÂ said: “It is astonishing and a huge concern that one in seven prisoners is Muslim. This is compared to just one in twenty of the population. And in some parts of the country, 40% of all prisoners are Muslim. What’s really worrying is the rise, year after year, in the number of Muslims behind bars. The Government doesn’t appear to think is a cause for concern let alone taking steps to address this growing trend. Their complacency is breathtaking. Four years on and Conservative and Lib Dem Ministers have ignored this call. While they have their heads in the sand, the numbers of Muslims behind bars continues to rise. The Government appears utterly clueless about what to do about this growing problem.
“This is a waste of human talent and a huge drain on the hard-pressed taxpayer. If we want to reduce crime, and save money on the costs of prisons and probation, we need to get to the bottom of why there is such growth in numbers of Muslims behind bars.”
Readers may remember Sadiq Khan beingÂ caught fiddlingÂ his expenses, hisÂ visits to an ‘old friend’ in prison, the old friend beingÂ Babar Ahmad,Â recently convictedÂ of terrorist offences, and his earlier career as aÂ human rights lawyer. Am I imagining an undercurrent of outrage that the kuffar dare to apprehend Muslim criminals and further dare to sentence them to imprisonment? A selection of comments from theÂ London Evening StandardÂ :
â™¦Â they commit more serious crimes and get locked up for longer.Â There’s a culture that encourages the explotation of unbelievers and teaches that women have less rights than sheep. Yes, I agree that it’s only a small minority of Moslems that are part of it. but there again, it’s only a small minority of my culture that are habitual thieves.
â™¦”Muslims are more frequently caught and prosecuted, or sentenced to longer prison terms compared with other offenders…”
….. because they commit more crimes, more frequently and of a more serious nature. Peddling drugs, major fraud and filthy restaurants and shops come immediately to mind.
â™¦Â Now let me think Mr Khan…I have it….could it be that these Muslims have done a crime and now they have to do the time…I know it must come as a shock to you that Muslims should be treated like the rest of British society….but there you go……donut!!!!
â™¦Â Could it have anything to do with the insane level of Muslim immigration into this City over the last 20 years.
There was a time when seeing a woman in a hijab was an event.Â Nowadays,it’s every other woman you pass on the street!
Surprise Surprise really….they aren’t special or better or more moral….in fact they’re more into crime than the average Brit from these statistics..fraud,robbery,peados ,honour crime etc
And you hear,”Oh,it can’t be true we are Muslim!”
Oh yes it is Abdul!
