..halal sweets, organic tooth chews, pocket-sized prayer books and Eid cards that prisoners can send to their loved ones.What the heck are organic tooth chews?
Abid Choudhry decided last year that even jail inmates deserved something special to help them feel less "isolated from the community" and the "religious calender as it were," never mind they're in prison for a reason and not at some holiday camp. Maybe those 400 or so prisoners- of an estimated 11,000 plus inmates in British jails- aren't hard core murderers or rapists, but they still committed some kind of criminal act that landed them in jail, so how religious can they be?
They didn't cost much- $3.00 or so per package- and they're not funded by the British taxpayer, since they were paid through donations made to the IHRC, but still. We need to stop pandering to religious jailbirds of all faiths.
