ISLAMIC militants allegedly took over the Bible lessons of a prison chaplain and attacked and abused him because of his Christian faith.
Pastor Paul Song said today he was constantly afraid of the Muslim gangs that dominate Brixton prison in London.
In one incident, a small group broke into their gathering in the prison chapel and began praising jihadists Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, who hacked soldier Lee Rigby to death, reports Mail on Sunday.
He told the newspaper: “It was obscene. My colleagues couldn’t take it anymore.
“Sometimes inmates spoke openly in the chapel in support of Islamic State and suicide bombers.
“And there was nothing I could do about it. They spoke with such hatred of Britain that it was frightening.
On another occasion, Mr. Song, born in South Korea, said he was racially abused and punched in the back.
Before emigrating to Britain, Mr Song, now 49, was a detective.
But he became a born-again Christian with a new purpose in life to help people on the margins of society and for many years ran a shelter at a rectory in Brixton.
Mr Son also claims that some detainees were forced to convert to Islam for their “protection”.
A Prison Service spokesman told the Mail: ‘There is absolutely no evidence to support the allegations relating to extremist behavior at HMP Brixton.
In a sign of how seriously authorities are taking the issue of radicalism in the country’s prisons, Prisons Minister Rory Stewart said specialist Muslim chaplains needed to be trained to de-radicalize extremists.
About 25 Muslim chaplains are to receive a week-long training on how to deal with prisoners with Islamist extremist ideologies as part of a pilot project.
