Two of Britain's most dangerous Islamic terrorists moved to new prison - because they complained fellow inmates were 'too white'

By GWYNETH REES - More by this author » Last updated at 09:58am on 21st March 2008

  Two of Britain's most dangerous terrorists have been moved to different prisons after complaining their fellow inmates were "too white".

 

Dhiren Barot and Omar Khyam asked to be transferred from high-security Frankland prison near Durham.

Barot masterminded a radioactive bomb plot involving limousines packed with nails and explosives and Khyam plotted to blow up Bluewater shopping centre in Kent.

Complained: Dhiren Barot and Omar Khyam said Frankland prison was 'too white'

They said they were at risk from other inmates - who are predominantly white - and claimed the environment was "dangerous" to ethnic minority prisoners. It is thought they had received death threats and attacks.

Although their requests were initially turned down, Barot, who is serving a minium of 30 years, has since been moved to Belmarsh in south-east London.

Khyam has also been moved to Full Sutton near York.

But news of the transfers has sparked outrage, with the Prison Service being accused of caving into prisoners' demands.

Barot's solicitor Miss Mudassar Arani, asked if his client could be removed from Frankland prison after a fellow inmate threw boiling water and oil over him last July.

The 35-year-old suffered serious burns and spent a week in hospital.

Prisoner Gary Moody was charged with wounding and assault but the case was dropped when Barot refused to press charges.

Miss Arani said that Frankland was "an extremely dangerous environment for ethnic minority prisoners who now fear for their safety."

She added that Barot was one of 20 Muslims in the prison which held 734 inmates.

And she alleged there was a "white supremacist" culture at Frankland and called for the creation of Muslim-only prisons.

It is understood that Barot was originally housed in Belmarsh prison before being moved to Frankland for radicalising other inmates.

Hate preacher Abu Hamza, 49, and July 21 ringleader Muktar Said Ibrahim, 29, are also housed at Belmarsh.

After he was injured in the attack, she said he was treated like a normal prisoner and locked in his cell from 4pm until morning, despite needing support to do basic tasks, such as make a phone call.

Yesterday, a spokesman for her office said both Barot and Khyam had been transferred.

Khyam, who was sent to Frankland from Belmarsh last June, had also complained of death threats.

His solicitor Imran Khan said the move was a "victory for common sense". But Patrick Mercer, a Conservative MP, criticised the decision.

He said: "Prisons are not meant to be run for the convenience of the prisoner.

"It is not up to them to dictate how to serve their sentence.

"I think we have to remember who's in charge.

"These people have been convicted of hideous crimes."

A spokesman for the Prison Service refused to comment.

Failing to mention or grasp the concept, that these guys are imprisoned, because society fears for its safety.

“Too White” in UK, “Typical White” in USA. I see a pattern and don't like it. One phrase by Islamic Terrorist and one by U.S. Presidential Candidate.

“Typical white prisons”? They are probably Borat Obama’s campaign staff in the UK.

In David Horowitz's essential book Radical Son,  he mentions Hillary Clinton's early career as a lawyer who defended members of the Black Panther party and states that many of those lawyers were young, leftist females, and many were particularly smitten by the Panthers and would 'minister' to them in a variety of extremely personal ways.....I'm guessing that this "Miss Arani" may well be similarly smitten and similarly 'involved' with her 'client'.

If either of these terrorists were able to vote in the USA, which candidate do you think that they would prefer?

Hint: It's the candidate who becomes incensed if his big ears are mentioned.

Belmarsh Prison

May I suggest the Île du Diable (Devil's Island)?

Too bad there is not such a place where everyone could send these wretched scumbags to served their sentences.

" Of course, we would have the UN getting it closed down in a New York minute as barbaric and inhuman. Yeah, right!!!

With his facial burns, Dhiren Barot apparently wanted to be with other “spotted” prisoners.

I’m thoroughly familiar with Sheriff Joe’s reputation and work.
Great guy.
Great manager.

He gets the job done right.

One reason why they are so angry at the world and full of self-loathing is that they are so damned ugly.

Yes, where the inmates are fed much better than the guards, or so past reports have stated.  Hopefully things have gotten better for the troops there in recent years.

LMAO @ "Borat Obama"  :-)

I've seen several absolutely gushing UK forum discussion threads on Hussein-Obama, where what "appear" to be mainly young white UK girls fawn over him in a manner similar to a "Beatles frenzy".

Disgusting.

Umm, I thought that the term for dying due to your faith was called "glorious martyrdom".

I guess it just isn't the same, being beat up by a bunch of British roughs, and not laying a hand on any of them, compared to detonating a bomb to kill thousands.

Too bad.

Cheers!

Well how else can they organize and train future terrorists if they have only white fellow prisoners?????

Better to move them to an all Mooslimb prison so they can train in peace. /sarcasm

On the other hand having them all in one place could prove helpful if an accident would happen while the gaurds were on break..

It seems that most posters at the Daily Mail page agree, and are incensed by this decision.

I would concur, while suggesting that any animosity should be dealt with by providing integrated exercise-yard privileges, particularly when Lawn Darts are being played.  There's nothing quite like a good fun game together to get people to like one another   :-)

Agreed on all counts...Islamofascists should all be separated, at the very least, from normal, decent people.  They are far more deadly than lepers, after all.

LMAO! And if none can be found that are sufficiently spotted, that Diversity Imbalance can be easily rectified.....just provide some Patriots with stoves, large cooking pots, a few barrels of oil and access to the terrorists.....

Agreed, and at least one of their hands always has the odor of fecal matter.  Unpleasantness from the soles of their dirty feet to the tops of their scruffy heads and all in-between.

I'm sorry, I keep forgetting....the reason why we haven't been aggressively nuking terrorist strongholds since at least Sept 11 if not before is what again?

I suspect that being tortured, beaten and dismembered to death in a dark smelly corner of an overcrowded prison by a band of imprisoned street thugs who REALLY. REALLY hate you is not quite as "glorious" as blowing yourself to bits in an instant and taking a busload of schoolchildren with you.

Too bad.

Perhaps they should complain to Allah?

"snicker"

Cheers!
 

And to you as well  :-)

OH! So that's where that box of C-4 explosive got left!  And there was an active detonator with it too, eh?  Well, I suppose the prison needed remodeling anyway.....
