Abu Hamza Bullied In Prison, Says Wife

Abu Hamza bullied in prison, says wife

The wife of Abu Hamza, the jailed Muslim cleric, has complained about her husband's treatment in a high-security London prison.

Abu Hamza's left arm has undergone further amputation

Hamza, 49, dubbed the "preacher of hate", is serving seven years for inciting the murder of non-Muslims.

In a letter to a London-based Islamic organisation, Nagat Mostafa, 46, said her husband claimed to be the victim of racist bullying and Islamophobia in Belmarsh jail.

Her letter to al-Maqreze Centre for Historical Studies was sent shortly after Hamza - who is fitted with hooks on both hands - underwent surgery in May to remove an inch of bone from his left arm stump, which had become infected.

She wrote: "I would like to bring to your attention the current plight of my husband…

"The reason that his arm needed further amputation was because of the removal of his prostheses, resulting in him constantly putting pressure on the remainder of his fore limbs. As there is no soft furnishing in his cell, he has been suffering considerable pain… After surgery, before he had even recovered from the anaesthetic, he was returned to Belmarsh, only to be told he had to move from his cell to another one. He was so weak and unable to stand that he refused, resulting in him being put in solitary confinement…

"My husband says the racist bullying and Islamophobia against him have intensified."

The contents of the letter were disclosed by the Maqreze Centre, which called the cleric's treatment "unjust" and said it feared he could die behind bars.

Ms Mostafa married Hamza in an Islamic ceremony in 1985, a year after he divorced his first wife. The couple have seven children. Hamza, who preached at Finsbury Park mosque, north London, was jailed in 2006 after being convicted of 11 charges of inciting murder and race hate.

An estimated one in six of Belmarsh's 920 prisoners is Muslim. Prison officers gave warning last week of the threat of extremists "radicalising" inmates.

Steve Gough, the vice-chairman of the Prison Officers' Association, said: "If you go to Belmarsh you'd see 20 going to Friday prayers a few years ago. Now you'll see 150.

"Put it this way, we're a power station and you don't want us to explode. The radical Muslims make the IRA look like kittens."

Gee, I feel just terrible about this.

Maybe if he had a pint of that good English ale or beer, he’d feel better and mellow out some.

A bully gets a dose of his own medicine. Sounds appropriate.

Has PC nonsense become so ridiculous that "Islamophobia" is still a bad thing, when the Islamic nutjob you fear has tired to incite people to cut your head off?

Jeffrey Dahmer was the victim of Pediphobia in prison. Would stating it this way have made pedophiles some kind of protected class?

That would be tragic. The Brits need to transfer Mullah sweet cheecks to club GITMO.

“Which hook does he wipe with?”

You’re so cruel. Pretty funny, though.

I googled up on him a bit more and found out that he refuses to wear his custom-made artificial hand. Maybe there is something in the Quran about not artificial limbs when you lose your...well..., natural ones?
