Maajid Nawaz explains how the wording of UKIP's manifesto is in danger of becoming the first step to Muslim concentration camps.

Speaking on his LBC show, Maajid said that he is wary of UKIP's proposal for Muslim-only prisons in an attempt to stop extremists prisoners converting other inmates to their ideology.

"There's a certain reason why some things are taboo in the first place," he said.

"We've got to be wary of steps that eventually lead to a nightmare-like scenario and when people seek to break certain taboos."

But the LBC presenter said the proposed policy was "in danger of becoming the first step to Muslim concentration camps leading to deportation."

Maajid said: "They are riding the wave of certain calls for freedom of speech to be protected against those who believe political correctness has gone has gone too far.

"They are riding the wave of a legitimate concern about jihadist terrorism.

"They are riding a wave of legitimate concern around immigration, and the question as to how we get that policy correct.

"They are riding a wave of all of these concerns and legitimate issues that people hold.

"And they are taking you a long way down the yellow brick road to the point where you see at the end of it that the Wizard of Oz that has been promised to you doesn't actually exist, it's a fake."
