Extremist Islamic hate literature is available on the bookshelves of British jails and distributed to inmates by Muslim chaplains, according to a leaked report.

A review into extremism in prisons found misogynistic and homophobic pamphlets and hate tracts endorsing the killing of apostates were available in chaplaincy rooms, the Times reported.

Hate literature and CDs were reportedly discovered in more than ten prisons in November.

A summary of the review, led by former prison governor Ian Acheson, was supposed to have been released last month but was postponed. The review was ordered by Michael Gove.

The report is also said to have found that chaplains at some jails encouraged inmates to raise money for Islamic charities linked to international terrorism.

Muslim chaplains, appointed by the Ministry of Justice, can earn up to £40,000. There are around 100 employed full time in prisons.

The Telegraph approached the Ministry of Justice for comment.

Around 1,000 prisoners in England and Wales have been identified as being extremists or vulnerable to radicalisation. Of the 12,328 Muslim prisoners, 131 are convicted Islamist terrorists.

Earlier this year it was suggested that all convicted Jihadi terrorists could be placed in a single top security prison in a measure designed to prevent them from spreading their propaganda to other inmates.

Policy for the past 50 years has been to disperse dangerous inmates around eight jails.

“We will develop a new prison-based programme for countering the non-violent extremism that can lead to terrorism and violence”
– David Cameron

 

David Cameron has said he is prepared to consider “major changes” to prevent extremism in prisons.

The Prime Minister said in February: “I am prepared to consider major changes: from the imams we allow to preach in prison to changing the locations and methods for dealing with prisoners convicted of terrorism offences, if that is what is required.

“We will develop a new prison-based programme for countering the non-violent extremism that can lead to terrorism and violence and this will focus on those at risk of radicalisation, regardless of the crime they originally committed – as well as those convicted of terrorism offences.”

  1. This has been happening quite a lot with Facebook and Zuckerberg has made clear that’s what he has ordered his employees to do. Rebel Media had a report recently to the effect that Facebook is becoming Shariabook.

  2. I’m a huge fan and supporter of The Muslim Issue and all its volunteer writers and thought you might be interested in something that Facebook did to me today.

    Three years ago, I created an anti-Islam page called The United West (not to be confused with Tom Trento’s organization), which has been gaining followers rapidly. At last count this morning we were at almost 8,000 avid fans.

    We have NEVER posted anything that directly insults individual Muslims, but we’ve still had our fair share of reports to Facebook, which have resulted in stints in FB jail. However, this morning, without any warning whatsoever, a little notification came up and said that my page had been unpublished. No explanation, just that I should check my insights (nothing wrong there) and Facebook’s terms and conditions (I don’t see that I’ve done any wrong there either).

    I’ve sent them an appeal, but I’m not too hopeful that my page will be reinstated. I’m pretty sure that FB is doing the rounds of all anti-Islam pages and unpublishing them arbitrarily.

    I will be doing an interview with Rebel Media in Toronto this evening to make my case heard. This is blatant disregard for freedom of speech!
