Muslim preachers approved by the Government are routinely distributing extremist literature in British prisons leaving hundreds of inmates at risks of radicalisation, a leaked report has found.
The extremist review, ordered by Michael Gove last year, found extremist CDs and pamphlets in more than 10 jails in November, it was reported today.
Inspectors also found hate tracts encouraging the murder of apostates, misogynistic and homophobic leaflets and extreme Islamic literature preaching contempt for British society.
The report is said to have sparked panic among officials who are worried about being seen to have lost control of jails – but ministers have not yet approved its publication.
There was evidence that a large number of clerics were from the Deobandi sect, which traditionally promotes conservative anti-British ideology.
A website promoting the Deobandi movement says loyalty is owed only to the global brotherhood of Muslims while integration into British society is denounced. [189 comments]
