Muslim sex offenders could opt out of treatment because its against their faith
The Daily Mail
Muslim sex offenders may be allowed to opt out of a treatment programme because it is against their religion, it was revealed today.
The Prison Service's Muslim advisor, Ahtsham Ali, has said there is a "legitimate Islamic position" that criminals should not discuss their crimes with others.
It could mean that Muslims convicted of sex attacks will attempt to avoid the Sex Offender Treatment Programme, which involves group discussions of their crimes.
It is against the rules of Islam for Muslims to discuss their crimes
