Muslim extremists make entire prison block 'no-go zone' of TERROR CELLS
MUSLIM extremists have taken control of a entire prison block turning it into a “no-go zone” for other inmates who refuse to move there over fears they will be forced to convert.

Prison Union leaders say an entire block at Gartree in Leicestershire is being run under Sharia law.
The shocking revelation comes after it emerged around 1,000 Muslim prisoners are at risk of being radicalised in British jails, sparking fears of a rise in “terrorist academies”.
A source said: “It is so bad non-Muslim prisoners are refusing to move there as they feel intimidated.
“There is huge pressure put on them to convert and a threat of violence if they don’t.”

Among the shocking allegations are stories that non-Muslim lags have been barred from having posters of topless women in their cells and even stopped from showering naked.
The source went on: “The Muslim gangs have their own rules and use Sharia law to sort out disagreements.
“In effect, they are setting up their own prison within a prison.
“There have been stories about non-Muslim inmates being barred from putting up topless pictures of women in their cells and even showering naked.”

The concerns were raised after leaders of the Prison Officers’ Association were taken on a tour of the jail.
The union reportedly passed on its fears to the National Offender Management Service, which oversees the prison service.
Earlier this week,
Lord Falconer warned extreme Islamist inmates were taking control of some wings.

Shoe bomber Richard Reid and Lee Rigby killer Michael Adebowale are among convicts thought to have been radicalised behind bars.
Meanwhile, the Government is said to be looking at plans to place all convicted Islamist terrorist prisoners together in a single secure unit.
The idea is set to be backed by Justice Secretary Michael Gove who will examine how 130 convicted terrorists are dealt with behind bars.
A Prison Service spokesperson said he had not found any evidence to "back-up any of these claims about HMP Gartree."
He added: "But we are not complacent about the possible risks that Islamist extremism poses to our prisons.
"That is why the Secretary of State commissioned an urgent review of how the prison system deals with this issue."
