London, Apr 12 (ANI): Worried over distractions to religious study, Islamic inmates in an UK jail have handed in their cell TVs because they do not want to watch The X Factor.
The prisoners at HMP Long Lartin in Worcestershire say they would rather spend time on religious study than watch The X Factor judged by the likes of Cheryl Cole, 26.
"Many Muslims in Long Lartin have handed back their TVs," Islamic inmate Abu Dira wrote in lag mag Inside Time.
"They are viewed as nothing more than a distraction to religious study. I do not envisage hordes of crying Muslims lamenting the loss of X Factor," the Daily Express quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
