Muslim inmates in UK prison get 3 K pound curry treatNovember 25th, 2008 - 4:58 pm ICT by ANI
London, Nov.25 (ANI): Believe it or not, officers of a top security British jail drove 40 miles to a restaurant to buy 3,500 pounds worth of curry for Muslim inmates.
The incident took place after the Muslim prisoners complained that the meals being served in the jail were not tasty enough.
According to The Sun, more than 150 prisoners and 50 staff tucked into the beef madras and lamb rogan josh meals worth 18 pounds each.
The food was purchased from the Roti Food Bar in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. They were to celebrate Eid the end of the Ramadan month of fasting.
A third of the jails 458 inmates are Muslim the highest level in the country.
Tory MP Malcolm Moss, who visited recently, said: They are a law unto themselves. There is a fear in the prison about what al-Qaeda can do.
Last night Justice Security Jack Straw launched a probe into the curry scandal. (ANI)
