Toilets in one London prison are getting a face-lift or rather, a change in direction to accommodate Muslim inmates who can't use them while facing Mecca, a British newspaper reported.

Government officials ackowledged using tax dollars for the changes to the facilities, but maintained that moving the toilets was part of "on-going refurbishment," according to an article in The Sun.

Islamic code prohibits Muslims from facing or turning their backs on the direction of prayer when they use the bathroom. Muslim prisoners complained of having to sit sideways on toilets so as to not break code.

Faith leaders in the government pressured officials to approve turning the toilets 90 degrees at HMP Brixton in London.

A Muslim American rights worker commended the London prison system for their actions, but said the problem, so far, doesn't appear to be an issue in the U.S.

"There have been very significant and numerous complaints at U.S. prisons on issues of regulating hygiene and respect for dietary laws," said Ibrahim Ramey, director of human and civil rights work for Muslim America Society. However, Ramey said he was unaware of any specific complaints regarding the direction of toilets in U.S. prisons.

I always thought if you went to prison, your "rights" were pretty much revoked for breaking the fuggin law!

but I guess you can still watch cable in Air Conditioning and work out and go to school and get on computers.. etc...

add the sodomy and its almost like bible camp :)

Tax dollars spent to accommodate a specific religion?

Why do those who champion the separation cause only speak up when it's Christians making the headlines?

I was in N. Iraq in 1991 building refugee camps. We set up tent cities supplied with water, eating facilities, wooden portable toilets (burnouts), and playgrounds for kids. We really didn't know any better, but we set up the toilets on the downwind side of camp facing the camp. The next day we returned to find little poop piles around the not east facing toilets, and that the playground equipment turned into firewood.

EXACTLY. They just need to be thankful that Tony Blair doesn't have their right hands chopped off.
