Muslims in UK jails three times more than 15 yrs ago

London, June 1 (ANI): Three times as many Muslims are in prison than 15 years ago in the UK.

The number could spark fears that jails could become a hotbed of radicalization.

According to the Sun, the number rocketed from 3,700 in 1997 to 11,250 last year.

The rate of increase is eight times faster than that of the overall prison population, meaning that 13 percent of prisoners in jails in London are now Muslim, compared to just six percent in 1997, the report added. (ANI)
