The Islamisation of the UK’s prisons

The Reverend Paul Song came to the UK from South Korea twenty five years ago.

He became a chaplain in Brixton Prison in South London, teaching the inmates the Alpha Course, a guide to living the Christian life in modern Britain.

At first, his tenure went well and he helped many inmates reform themselves and become model citizens.

However, this situation changed with the appointment of a new head chaplain at the prison, a Muslim Imam.

This new head of religion at the prison took Paul into his office and declared his Islamising agenda, saying he wanted to

change what he described as the ‘Christian domination’ in the prison.

Over the following months, Paul and his fellow Christian chaplains were to undergo a severe trial of bullying, intimidation and even physical violence.

He was subjected to:

– Regular noisy interruption of his services with Muslim inmates shouting abuse like ‘Chinky’ and ‘crazy Christian’ at him aand even voicing support for violent Jihadism, including the killers of Lee Rigby.

– Constant attempts to convert him to Islam using intimidating verbal tactics.

– Physical violence, even from the Imam himself, who used his substantial physical bulk to intimidate Paul and once pushed him out of the way. Another Muslim innate also shoved Paul in the back in one such incident.

– All this verbal and physical abuse became too much for Paul’s fellow chaplains, who suffered in the same way as Paul and many of them left.

Paul had more staying power (he’d been a detective in Korea and wasn’t so east to force out) and he stuck it out. The head Imam continued his persecution of Paul.

Matters came to a head when the Imam called Paul into his office and banned him from preaching his Christian course as it was ‘too radical’, even though the Alpha course is taught at churches throughout the UK.

Reluctantly, Paul agreed, though he knew that he wasn’t an extremist of any kind. The Imam’s persecution continued and eventually Paul was sacked on false charges of calling an inmate a terrorist.

Responding to the above, a Prison Service spokesman said: ‘There is absolutely no evidence to support claims relating to extremist behaviour at HMP Brixton.’ So what about Paul’s evidence?

Paul has been re-instated after an appeal and the imam has been dismissed on matters unrelated to Push’s case, but he is understandably disappointed and perplexed by the whole affair.

Paul is now planning to restart his courses. ‘This has been a very difficult time,’ he said. ‘Not for a moment did I think that something like this could happen in England.’

Sadly, ‘something like this’ goes on all the time now in England, in many areas of life.

British Prisons Recruit ‘Pagan Chaplains’ On £30,000 A Year Salary

The Ministry of Justice is employing Pagans to become prison chaplains to give prisoners “religious care” with salaries reportedly up to £30,000 a year.

The job holder will provide for the religious care of prisoners and staff in the Pagan faith tradition and appropriate pastoral care for all irrespective of faith or tradition,” a job advert reads for a job covering Dartmoor, Channings Wood, and Exeter prisons states. 

Anyone that applies for this job must “lead open ritual, officiate in Rites of Passage, and run workshops for mixed Pagan traditions within the prison system” and of course must be recommended or endorsed by the ‘Pagan faith community’. Prison Service Pagan Faith Adviser must deem them acceptable.

The jobs that have been advertised on the Ministry of Justice site for the roles of Pagan Chaplaincy , for reportedly up to  35 prisons, the salaries seem to range from  £25,920 to £29,176 each year. Similar to a prison guards wage packet. They are for  full, part-time, and job shares. The wage could even include a 17 per cent “unsocial hours” bonus payment.



Some of the prisons that will get extra faith services are: 

  • The very old, Victorian HM Prison Winchester, which was said to be “teetering on the edge of a major incident” after an Independent Monitoring Board (IMB) report found a swell in self-harming, drug use, and violence amongst prisoners and that the prison was “understaffed” with “inadequate facilities”.

  • HM Prison Whitemoor, which was reported by The Times as facing major issues with Islamic Radicalism in 2015 where “prisoners with extremist views… have threatened violence towards prisoners that weren’t Muslim. Others are suspected of near enough forcing non-Muslims to convert to Islam.”

  • HMP Dartmoor, which was reported to be facing problems with limited staff staff  and they have a ‘spice’ drug problem plaguing many prisoners.

  • Lastly HMP Frankland, which opened an expensive ‘jihadi’ separate wing in July for Islamic Radical prisoners, like hate preacher Anjem Choudary and British soldier Lee Rigby’s murderer Michael Adebolajo.


Breitbart London made a very negative article regarding Pagan prison chaplains and whilst I am certainly no enemy of Breitbart or their work I think they have got it wrong on this occasion.

We have Chaplains for near every third-world faith in prisons for prisoners but there isn’t much going for Pagan prisoners in terms of spiritual guidance, I do agree with the argument it’s a waste of tax-payers money but if we are offering chaplains to foreign faiths why should it be a problem to offer similar treatment to an indigenous religion in the UK and Europe that predates Christianity, Islam, Buddhism and many more?
