This is in response to the BNI commenter who recently said, "At least Muslim imams never sexually abuse children"

Muslims love to criticize non-Muslims for violence and sexual abuse scandals in their faiths, yet refuse to acknowledge the many instances of violence and sexual abuse occurring in Islam, starting with their paedophile prophet Muhammad.

I could post many times more than these, but this should suffice.

KENYA: Imam sexually assaults his 3-year-old daughter.

All Africa – Police in Mombasa are still looking for an imam who allegedly sexually assaulted his 3 year old daughter. The man is said to have fled after committing the offense. Doctors at the hospital have confirmed that the girl who is receiving treatment at the Coast general hospital has been sexually assaulted. Meanwhile muslim leaders are now demanding thorough vetting of all religious leaders. Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims chairman Mudhar Kithamy says they are concerned about the alarming cases of sodomy and rapes taking place in Mosques and Madrasa.

BANGLADESH: Imam rapes 10-year-old girl.

Asia News – A ten-year-old girl was brutally raped on Saturday in Chittagong by Mohammad Moinuddin, the imam of the Chittagong Government Muslim High School. The 42-year-old man said that Satan led him to commit the deed at his shop at Yakubnagar in Firingibazar. The girl was taken to Chittagong’s Medical College Hospital for tests.

Kotwali Police Chief Abul Kalam Azad told AsiaNews that around 6 pm, the imam called the girl as she walked home from school. He then took her to a quiet place where he raped her.

The girl ran home bleeding and told everything to her parents. Her father ran to the place of the crime to apprehend the rapist, who was arrested right after police was informed of the incident.

“My daughter is just ten-years-old,” the father said. “Every time I pray, I cannot but think about what happened. I cannot believe that an imam, a man who learnt from the holy religion of Islam, a man who teaches others, is the same man who raped by daughter. I want justice.”

Deputy police inspector Naznin Sultana Juthee said that the girl’s mother has already filed rape charges against the imam. Local human rights activists condemned the rape.

FLORIDA: Muslim imam, Yasser Mohamed Shahade, charged with rape of 13-year-old boy at mosque.

TBO – TAMPA -A 35-year-old imam sexually battered a 13-year-old boy at a Tampa mosque Sunday morning, police say. The victim was staying overnight at the mosque at 1307 W. North B St. waiting for early morning prayer, an arrest report states.

Yasser Mohamed Shahade, a prayer leader who had been in the country for about two months and had been staying at the mosque, sexually battered the victim about 6 a.m., police say.

Police were called about noon Sunday, and they responded to Tampa General Hospital, where the call came from, police spokeswoman Andrea Davis said. Police aren’t releasing the name or details about the person who made the call, and details about the boy’s condition aren’t immediately available.

Former mosque board member Yusuf Strohmier said he was surprised after being told by a reporter of the arrest. “If he did it – which is a key there, because you have to have witnesses – that’s just sick,” he said. (Not in this country you don’t need 4 witnesses. This is not Saudi Arabia)

BRITAIN: Muslim cleric found guilty of sexually assaulting young boys at a mosque in Stoke-on-Trent.

Chris-UK – Mohammed Hanif Khan, 42, had denied charges of rape, attempted rape and sexual activity with a child. A jury at Nottingham Crown Court found Khan, of Owler Lane, Sheffield, guilty of two counts of rape and one of sexual activity with a child.

Nottingham Crown Court heard that Khan was imam of the mosque where he led prayers and delivered religious education lessons to boys at evening classes. Don Knapper, district crown prosecutor, said it was a case of abuse of young boys by a man who they and their families trusted.

After the verdict, Det Insp Tim Martin from Staffordshire Police said it had been a thorough inquiry, and he realised the case had been cause for some “understandable concern” in the community.

PAKISTAN: Acid attack on boy who ‘refused sex with Muslim cleric.’

UK TELEGRAPH – On his hospital bed last week, 16-year-old Abid Tanoli sat listless and alone, half of his body covered by burns that all but destroyed both his eyes and left his face horribly disfigured.

The teenager talked, with difficulty, of how his life had been destroyed since the fateful day in June 2002 when he refused to have sex with his teacher at a religious school in Pakistan.

The boy was horrifically injured in an acid attack after he rebuffed the Muslim cleric’s sexual advances.  Now, he has alarmed Pakistan’s powerful religious establishment by pressing charges against his alleged assailants. It is the first such case to be brought against a Muslim cleric and threatens to expose a scandal of sex abuse within Pakistan’s secretive Islamic schools.
