Islamic extremists threaten to stab fellow inmates who eat pork in front of them at one of Britain’s toughest jails, a prisoner has claimed.
The ‘long serving prisoner’ at HMP Long Lartin said cooking pork at the communal kitchen is ‘deemed dangerous, even a threat to your life’.
The anonymous man made the claims in a letter to prisoners’ magazine Inside Time.
He claims inmates at the jail are being radicalized but the issue is not being addressed by prison bosses.
‘Terror’ preacher Abu Hamza and radical cleric Abu Qatada have both been held at the prison.
The inmate wrote: ‘The kitchen is usually occupied by 90 per cent Muslims and we have been told if we cook pork we will be stabbed. There have been incidents here where people have been targeted and pressured and bullied into converting to Islam.
