recognising Star Wars religion'
The group of inmates claim their beliefs are treated as a “joke” despite Jedi being the UK’s seventh most popular religion.
There are at least 50 Jedi convicts in UK jails and a number of them have contacted the Jedi Knight Society and Temple of the Jedi Order to get backing for their "long" legal fight.
One of the unnamed inmates said they were "disgusted" Jediism was not among 18 religions recognised by the National Offender Management Service (NOMS).
The proposed legal fight was sparked by a prisoner at the 622-capacity HMP Isis in Thamesmead who contacted inmates’ magazine Inside Time.
