Crime: Muslims

 

Lord Sheikh asked Her Majesty’s Government:

 

What research has been conducted into the factors affecting criminality among Muslims, and what action has been taken to reduce it.

 

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Justice (Lord Hunt of Kings Heath): The Ministry of Justice has not conducted or commissioned research into factors affecting criminality among individuals belonging to specific faith groups, including Muslims.

 

The National Offender Management Service’s policies on rehabilitation and interventions to reduce criminality apply to offenders irrespective of their religion.
