Outgoing terms in British prisons Islamic extremists create gangs and force other prisoners to convert to Islam. This writes the Daily Mail with reference to the report of the Ministry of Justice of Great Britain.
The report notes that usually the leaders of such gangs are “fanatics” who are serving time for terrorism, as they often enjoy special respect among the rest. As one of the prisoners told the ministry, first the head of such a group tries to make friends with those whom he wants to recruit and persuade him to change his religion. If a person refuses to accept Islam and become a member of a gang, they declare him a snitch and ostracize him, and then start beating him.
Most often, those convicts who had previously been in street gangs are subject to such recruitment, as they are believed to “have a propensity for violence,” the agency said in a report. Periodically, the victims of Islamic gangsters and prison officials.
According to the Daily Mail, earlier experts have warned that British prisons are increasingly becoming a hotbed of extremist ideas. So, last year, Pastor Paul Song, who worked as a chaplain at Brixton Prison in south London, said that Islamist gangs actually took control of the rest of the prisoners and physically abused him for his commitment to the Christian religion. In particular, they captured a chapel where Bible talks were held, and began to glorify the jihadists who killed the British soldier Lee Rigby in May 2013, and the terrorist organization Islamic State (banned in Russia).
