Muslim murderers have demanded and been given microwaves to heat their food up during Ramadan, leaving other prisoners at Gartree jail in Leicestershire, furious and claiming Muslims are receiving preferential treatment.
Muslim prisoners complained that last year’s food – served was cold when they began to eat it during darkness, the end of the fasting period.
Caterers will now deliver their meals, which they will warm up in ¬the microwaves provided.
Fadi Nasri, 33, who organised the murder of his special constable wife, is just one of the Muslim prisoners at the jail serving life.
One man 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 pointed out a severe security risk that prisoners could easily smash the microwaves and use sharp 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.”
