How Muslims took over the British underworld | The Sun |Features

Ex gang member
Strangehold ... Amir poses with sword as he tells of power of Asian gangs

IN traditional Islamic headgear, Asian ex-gang member Amir poses with his sword and issues the stark warning: "Britain's underworld belongs to the Muslims."
    • The 21-year-old, whose organisation turned over thousands of pounds a day from drug-dealing and credit card scams, claims a post-9/11 fear of terrorism has allowed Muslims to develop a stranglehold on our criminal community.

      Through Islam, he says, they have numbers which cannot be matched, and rival gangs are being forced out by ruthless Islamic criminals who only deal with each other.


      They recruit black and white members in Britain's jails, tempting them to convert to Islam in exchange for a cushier life inside.

      Once released, the converted cons have access to an entirely new network of Muslim criminal contacts - and are trusted because they pray to Allah.

      Amir claims that Britain's underworld will soon be completely dominated by Islamic gangs - and he says the West's paranoia over terrorism is to blame. "People don't f*** with us because they think we're all in al-Qaeda," he explains.

    • "The reality is that Asian gangs don't give much of toss about religion, but with Islam comes fear, and with fear comes power.
    • "Second, every Friday Muslims are allowed prayer meetings. This is free time away from the guards, so they can plot, make new contacts and often discuss anti-West ideology.

      "Muslims also get better food. They have money sent in for their kitchens from the Muslim community outside, and they get special Halal dishes stipulated by Islam.

    • "Muslims have this country under control. Nobody can touch us."
