Yesterday, the British government reports warned that Britain is exposed to a new trend of crimes that are committed by the British Muslims. The information that was published by the British Ministry of Interior confirmed that the number of the British Muslim prisoners increased from 1840 to 4355. On the other hand, the number of the Jewish prisoners decreased to 198. The information that was published by the British Ministry of Interior stated that 30% of the Muslim prisoners are imprisoned for violence and sexual assault crimes.


The British "Times" magazine said that the Islamic colony has the highest birthrate of any section of the British population. The paper said that Muslim youth between the ages of 18-25 were prepared to commit crimes involving violence and sexual assault because of their social conditions. The magazine added that the British Ministry of Internal Affairs decided to appoint a Muslim counselor in the British Prisons’ Administration service. This Muslim counselor is to teach the Muslim prisoners the principles and teachings of Islam and help them to preserve their traditions and customs.
