A local newspaper is reporting that a "gang" known as "The Muslim Boys" is being dispersed, because its leaders are in prison. The report mentions that this "gang" performed forced conversions. It also claims that "they adopted Islam to get better treatment in prison".
However, earlier this year The Mirror reported that this group, far from being dispersed, was taking control of Belmarsh Prison, and using it to recruit new members.
"These people hold religious services every week. Around 125 Muslims attend and top members of al-Qaeda preach. None of the staff has a clue what they're talking about. Six officers attend each service, but all they can do is stand and watch. Those in the chapel could be planning a major terrorist attack but the officers wouldn't know. We can't even tape the service and get it translated because it is against Human Rights. It's frightening."The BBC has made no mention of this gang at all within the last year, and don't expect them to do so anytime soon. Also, don't expect the powers that be to do anything to stop this.
