Muslims make up just one in 20 Britons – but one in SEVEN prison inmates.

Muslim in jailFriday morning in Wakefield Prison and Yusuf Rahim joins 60 other Muslim prisoners as they head to the jail’s gym to say their prayers. If nothing else, it is a chance to get out of his cell and take a break from the normal routine.

The same goes for the halal food the 47-year-old is served every mealtime — Rahim is particularly partial to the spicy vegetable curry — an improvement on the normal prison fare.

And there is one other advantage to his new-found religion. Because, as one of Britain’s most reviled murderers, he is banking on his Muslim ‘brothers’ providing him with some level of protection during his time inside.

      No, they are 3 times as likely to be charged and found guilty.

      Many others are never charged for fear of claims of “racism”.

        I bet if we looked at the crimes we would see muslims way over represented in the violent and sex crimes as well.
