Prison Report

Suleman Nagdi said in response to the Chief Inspector of Prison’s report in Muslims in Prisons. “I welcome the observations of the Chief Inspector having had experience of working in secure establishments. I agree that there is an underdeveloped understanding about Muslims among staff and a tendency to group them together as terrorists or potential terrorists. I believe that Prisons must invest in more staff training so that dialogue can open up between Prisons and the wider community; we all also have a role in prisoner rehabilitation. If prisons simply reinforce stereotypes and prejudices, it serves merely to marginalise people even more.
