Non muslim prisoners at hmp gartree where the recent channel 4 tv show lifers was filmed are claiming Muslim inmates get better treated at the long term jail and are furious that the Muslim prisoners are having microwaves put in their cells for ramadam. The special treatment they seem to be getting was a common complaint also n the previous post about about muslim prisoners in hmp whitemoor. Microwaves in their cells is way over doing it. At the end of the day this isnt some open prison with low rated inmates who havent paid their fines or inside for drunk driving. Were talking murderewrs, rapists and terrorists many serving life. therefore the issue is regarding safety with it being metal and having glass present and the posibility of making a weapon. Secondly why should muslims be treated differently than any1 else. if they want to eat late at night then thats their choice not to eat when the rest do. so they should either eat theirs cold or given a pack lunch. They have no right to expect or get any special treatment whilst in prison. They seem to forget their in prison as punishment and any freedoms or rights they lost when sentenced

LAGS’ FURY AT MUSLIM FAST FOOD
They demanded them to warm up food during their Ramadan fast
Killer Fadi Nasri is improsined at Gartree in Leicestershire
22nd July 2012 By Daily Star reporter
MUSLIM murderers have been given microwaves in their prison cells.
They demanded them to warm up food during their Ramadan fast.
But other lags at Gartree lifer’s jail, where the kitchen is being refurbished, are furious and claim the Muslims are getting special treatment.
Muslim inmates moaned that last year’s grub – served in flasks – was cold when they came to eat it during darkness, the end of the fasting period.
And they threatened to strike.
Now they will get meals delivered by caterers which they will warm up in microwaves.
Muslim cons at the jail in Leicestershire include killer Fadi Nasri, 33, who organised the murder of his special constable wife.
A source said: “The Muslim lads kicked up a stink last year over the food they received for Ramadan.
“And guess what? The authorities gave in and gave the green light. It’s a f**king liberty.
“If the non-Muslims asked for this they’d be told where to go.”
He warned that prisoners could smash the microwaves and use jagged pieces as weapons.
A Prison Service spokesman said: “HMP Gartree is in the process of having its kitchen rebuilt.
“A number of microwaves have been purchased for the kitchen area and for some prisoners observing Ramadan so they can heat up food in their cells.”
