A Muslim appearing in court charged with grooming and having sex with a 13 year old girl claimed he didn’t know it was illegal because of his Muslim teaching. In saving his own bacon he has confirmed what many of us have been saying for a long time about the things being taught at Muslim only schools
He said he had been taught a woman was “no more worthy than a lollipop dropped on the ground”.
Where in the British national curriculum does that feature? This is the danger with these Muslim only schools especially where they are taught in non English. Where many of those doing the teaching are not actually qualified teachers but unqualified Muslim religious teachers. No amount of visits from Ofsted inspectors is ever going to uncover what really goes on in these places. They simply change the topics of the lessons for the duration of the inspectors being there. Then its back to teaching Islamic style. Where the curriculum goes out the window and all the teachings are based on the Koran, which is not only outdated but full of inconsistencies and false science.
Is it any wonder that in Muslim countries where all the schools are of this kind that they lag so far behind the rest of the world in terms of intelligence and knowledge. What have any of the Muslim countries ever been known for inventing? other than the square wheel and jihad! How many Muslims have ever won a Nobel prize for sciences in which many women from the western world done.
I didn’t know sex with
13-year-old was illegal
Student, 18, blames Muslim teaching
Adil Rashid, 18, met the girl on Facebook and groomed her for two months before booking a hotel where they had sex.
But when cops arrested him, he claimed he did not know about the age of consent because of his Muslim education in a madrassa school.
He also said he had been taught a woman was “no more worthy than a lollipop dropped on the ground”.
Nottingham Crown Court heard Rashid met the girl on Facebook and had chatted and texted with her for two months. Last July he travelled from his home in Birmingham, having booked a hotel room in Nottingham.
He met the girl in the city centre and they went to the hotel and had sex. They left two hours later.
Rashid was arrested the following week after the girl told a school pal what had happened. The friend then told a teacher who alerted police.
Julia Smart, defending, had told an earlier hearing that Rashid had been educated in a madrassa and had “little experience of women”.
The barrister said he told a psychologist after his arrest that he did not know having sex with a 13-year-old was against the law. Rashid told police that he had been “tempted by her”. The court was told he had later “felt bad” about having sex with her.
Judge Michael Stokes QC said: “He’s had an unusual education, certainly in terms of the sexual education provided. Comparing women to lollipops is a very curious way of teaching young men about sex.”
The judge added Rashid must have known it was illegal “unless he was going around with his eyes shut”. He also noted Rashid’s school taught that sex outside marriage is forbidden.
Judge Stokes described Rashid as “passive” and said sending him to jail might cause him “more damage than good”.
Rashid was sentenced to nine months in youth custody, suspended for two years.
