UK spends £25,000 to buy lunch boxes for Muslim inmates because of Ramadam
PRISON bosses sparked fury yesterday after splashing out £25,000 to buy lunch boxes for Muslim terrorists and criminals. The containers were handed out to nearly 250 inmates to keep their dinners warm in their cells during the Muslim festival of Ramadan.
The bright yellow metal flasks were issued to all Muslim prisoners in Londons top-security Belmarsh Jail which houses scores of convicted and suspected terrorists. They include hook-handed cleric Abu Hamza, 48, serving seven years for incitement to murder and racial hatred.
Prison officers at Belmarsh last night branded the decision “absolutely crazy”. They said that they feared the 18ins long containers looking like a tool box could be used as a lethal weapon.
The boxes allow prisoners to keep meals warm until darkness when they are allowed to eat at the end of the fasting period during Ramadan, which began on Monday.
And instead of boxes, weren’t there other solutions more appropriate for these kind of inmates??
