Wasiq Wasiq, Associate Fellow at the Henry Jackson Society’s Centre on Radicalisation & Terrorism, reveals that Islamists control some elements of our prisons and making them “shariah compliant”. Prison staff delegate leadership to “prison emirs”, muslim inmates given the task of controlling the muslim population in the prison. (Emirs are traditionally commanders in Islamic armies). This relieves prison staff of the duty of controlling the prison. They are essentially rewarding rather than punishing these prisoners.Prisons Have Handed Power to Islamist Prisoners.

There were also Islamic extremists intimidating staff and using threats of violence to get their way. It’s not essential for muslims to pray together 5 times a day, but they would insist on having this “right” to come out of their cells 5 times a day to gather together and pray.
There is no attempt at proper rehabilitation and many of these muslim prisoners go on to commit terrorist offences upon their release from prison. This was the case with the Streatham, Reading and Fishmongers’ Hall terrorist attacks. There was also a terrorist attack WITHIN a prison.
