Afghan Asylum Seeker Jailed For Grooming 13 Year Old From Stoke On Trent

Muslim Asif Ghanbari entered the UK illegally in the back of a lorry. Once here he applied for asylum claiming to be escaping fighting in his native Afghanistan. Presumably this was granted as he had started a training course to become an interpretor for the British Army. A life changing opportunity which you think he would make the most of given he shouldn’t of even been in the country.?  No he showed his gratitude by grooming a 13 year old girl online before hooking up with her numerous times for sex. The sexual predator despite knowing the girls age even managed to get her pregnant which he made he abort. Animals like Ghanbari  should face automatic deportation on release regardless if they have claimed asylum. No appeals, no human rights laws, no nothing other than the first plane out of here

An Afghan teenager and former asylum seeker training to be an interpreter for the British Army has been jailed after meeting a Potteries schoolgirl on Facebook and getting her pregnant.

Asif Ghanbari was dumped at Stafford Services after coming to the UK on the back of a lorry in 2008 and started a new life in Stoke-on-Trent.

The 19-year-old then used a false name – Jack Nelson – to meet a 13-year-old girl on Facebook.

He took her on dates in Hanley and Newcastle, had sex with her 17 times and got her pregnant – when she was 14 – before she had an abortion.

Now seeker Ghanbari, of Hanley, has been locked up for 32 months for his crimes.

Children’s charities today condemned Ghanbari’s actions.

NSPCC official Sandra McNair said: “This sad case highlights, once again, the urgent need to educate young people on how to keep safe online, so they can be protected from grooming and exploitation. Peer-to-peer abuse is a growing concern and highlights the vital need to educate young people about healthy and respectful relationships.”

Asif fled war-torn Helmand Province to start a new life – and ended up having under-age sex with a Potteries schoolgirl.

The one-time illegal immigrant posed under the false name of Jack Nelson to groom the then 13-year-old girl on Facebook because he wanted a girlfriend.

The 19-year-old took the youngster – who cannot be named – on dates to Newcastle and Hanley’s Central Forest Park before their relationship blossomed and she went to his Hanley home.

They had regular sex and the girl fell pregnant at 14.

Now Ghanbari – who has been training with the British Army with a view to working as an interpreter for future visits to Afghanistan – has been sentenced to 32 months in a young offenders’ institution.

Stoke-on-Trent Crown Court heard the pair met on Facebook.

Prosecutor Rupert Jones said: “He used the name Jack Nelson. A couple of weeks after making contact he suggested they meet. They met in Hanley Forest Park and he arrived in his car. At the time the victim was aged 14. She told the defendant her age.

“The defendant arranged to meet her again in Newcastle. He kissed her. Eventually he took her to his home and into his bedroom. They had sexual intercourse without contraception. They had intercourse on a number of other occasions.”

The court heard the girl had an abortion after she became pregnant. Ghanbari was arrested and told police he had consensual sex with the girl about 17 times.

Ghanbari, of Leek Road, Hanley, pleaded guilty to meeting a child following sexual grooming and sexual activity with a child.

The court heard Afghanistan-born Ghanbari was trafficked to the UK in 2008 on the back of a lorry. He has no knowledge of what has happened to his family in Helmand Province.

Catherine O’Reilly, mitigating, said: “He was reaching out for some comfort, a relationship, some kind of family life. He adopted the name because it was a western name. He wanted a girlfriend.

“He has made a massive mistake, a massive error of judgement.”

Miss O’Reilly said Ghanbari is intelligent and has been recruited as an Army interpreter. She asked Judge David Fletcher to step back from passing an immediate custodial sentence.

But the judge sentenced Ghanbari to 32 months in a young offenders’ institution and placed him on the sex offenders’ register for life.

Judge Fletcher said: “It could not be said that you were under any misconception about the age of that woman. Her details were on the Facebook site. On the first occasion she made clear to you she was the age she was. She was between 13 and 14. You admitted you had unprotected sexual intercourse with her, you say on 17 occasions.”


Two Cross Dressing Suicide Bombers Arrested In Helmand, Afghanistan

Anybody familiar with Afghanistans dirty little secret, the practice of “bachi baza,” will know that males dressed as females is common place. Where bearded Afghan warlords get off on dressing up teenage boys as females who then dance and give sexual favours to their masters.

It seems cross dressing is not exclusive to teen boys but Afghan adult men also enjoy a bit. Afghan security personal in the almost lawless Helmand province have captured two bearded transvestite suicide bombers ready to create carnage.

Two suicide bombers who had disguised themselves in women’s dress were arrested by Afghan security forces in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan.

Deputy interior minister Gen. Ayub Salangi said the two suicide bombers were arrested in Gresh district.

Gen Salangi also added that four anti-government armed militants were blown up by their own explosives in northern Faryab province.

He said the incident took place in Shirin Tagab district while the militants were placing improvised explosive device (IED) on roadside.

According to Gen. Salangi, at least militants were also injured following the explosion.

The anti-government armed militant groups including the Taliban militants frequently use improvised explosive device as the weapon of their choice to target Afghan and coalition security forces, however the ordinary civilians are mostly targeted in roadside bombings.



Afghan Asylum Seeker Raped 19 Year Old In Bolton

Another heinous rape committed by a Muslim parasite who by rights shouldn’t even be in the country to commit a crime. Afghan refugee Najeeb Ahmedzai claims he fears being killed by the Taliban if he is deported at the end of his sentence. TOUGH SHIT.

I’v got news for the nonce….”Our soldiers have been giving their lives in your shithole of a country to get rid of the Taliban from power so you have no reason not to of been repatriated before now already. Our government is to soft to do that instead they allowed you to stay but  you failed to adhere to our laws. The moment you unbuttoned your pants to rape that girl you overstepped the mark. You have no right to be here and the taxpayer shouldn’t have to fund an uneducated, illiterate and unemployable scumbag rapist for the rest of their life….sling it your not wanted”

Refugee raped 19-year-old in locked bedroom

11:57am Monday 24th February 2014 in News

The Bolton News: Bolton Crown CourtBolton Crown Court

A WOMAN was locked in a bedroom and raped after accepting an invitation to visit a man’s house.

Afghan refugee Najeeb Ahmedzai was jailed for four and a half years after pleading guilty to raping the 19-year-old woman on February 26 last year.

Philip Dobson, prosecuting, told Bolton Crown Court how the teenager had received a text message from a man she had met at New Year, inviting her to his home.

Against the judgement of a friend, she accepted the invitation and, when she got to the house in Lawson Street, Astley Bridge, she found Ahmedzai there as well.

The two men plied her with vodka and when she told them she was tired they went upstairs to a bedroom with her.

Mr Dobson said the bedroom door was locked and she was left alone with Ahmedzai, who raped her.

“She did not know what was happening. She was protesting,” said Mr Dobson. Ahmedzai would not allow her to use her mobile phone, but she managed to dial 999 to call for help after telling him she needed to go to the bathroom.

Ahmedzai had left the house when police arrived and was arrested at an immigration office five months later.

Denise Breen-Lawton, defending, said Ahmedzai, who is believed to be aged 24, was illiterate and uneducated and feared being killed by the Taliban if, as is likely, he is deported at the end of his sentence.

Jailing Ahmedzai, Judge Timothy Stead told Ahmedzai the rape has had a devastating affect on his victim.

He said: “She has suffered depression and has spent time in a hospital as a result. What you did has affected her badly.”


Afghan Asylum Seeker Mohammad Salem Nazari Says Alleged Assaults On Teen Girls Were Accidents

An Afghan asylum seeker in Australia went on a 25 minute molesting spree at the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre sexually assaulting 7 teenagers. After being arrested by police he claimed all 7 incidents were by accident because he was a bad swimmer. The pervert must think the Aussies are as gullible and stupid as people back in his homeland if he thinks people will believe his defence. More like he saw young females showing a bit of flesh and like so many Muslims couldn’t control his own sexual urges.

Unlike here in the UK, the Australian authorities don’t mess about and have already revoked his asylum claim and told him on his release he will be deported back to Afghanistan. If he was here he would still be here 5 years later claiming benefits while he fights deportation on human rights laws

AN Afghan asylum seeker accused of indecently assaulting seven teenage girls in 25 minutes at a western Sydney swimming pool claimed the incidents were accidents – because he couldn’t swim.

Mohammad Salem Nazari, 33, yesterday pleaded not guilty during a bail application in Burwood Local Court to the allegations made by the girls, aged 14 to 18.

Magistrate Chris Longley refused bail on the basis of the number of alleged victims and the seriousness of the assaults, allegedly carried out in which police said were at the “highest level” of the alleged offences committed inthe Rapid River Ride at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre on Sunday.

Nazari’s bridging visa has already been revoked and if he is given bail at a later date he will be placed in a detention centre.

He required a Dari interpreter when he appeared via video link from Silverwater jail – but his appearance was delayed because he got lost inside the jail on his way to the video link room and prison guards were unable to locate him.

His lawyer Peter Allport eventually told the court Nazari was a poor or “non-swimmer” and he came into contact with the girls because of the current the whirlpool ride created.

Police facts tendered to the court said the accused admitted in an interview after his arrest he touched the girls but said it was accidental.

Police said he showed no remorse and appeared “extremely nonchalant” about the seriousness of the allegations. They also said the girls were traumatised by the alleged assaults.

Nazari is accused of grabbing the girls around the waist, touching their thighs, bottoms and breasts.

One girl told her father who reported the incident to pool security. They started monitoring Nazari through CCTV until police arrived.

He will reappear in court in January.


Afghan Asylum Seeker Who Already Cost Taxpayer £200k Finally Jailed For Sex Attack

Yet another Islamic parasite committing sex attacks on British streets.  Afghan asylum seeker Mohammadullah Khan who shouldn’t even be in the UK has already cost the taxpayer over £200,000 before adding the cost of his prison sentence at around £40,000 per year. People like him are the filth who leftists from groups like SWP/UAF, HnH and the Labour party go out of their way to defend claiming they should be allowed to live here. Its not them who have to live next door to them in their middle class suburban homes.

The amount of Muslim illegal immigrants and failed asylum seekers that go on to commit sex attacks and other serious crimes when left to freely walk the streets is staggering. They need to start ditching the red tape and fast tracking them out of the UK.

An asylum seeker who groped a tourist and delayed his court case in a bid to stay in the UK has finally been sentenced and will deported once he has served time in prison.

Mohammadullah Khan, 20, who came to Britain from Afghanistan, assaulted a 26-year-old French woman as she got off a night bus in Maida Vale, west London, in July last year. Khan’s case cost the taxpayer tens of thousands of pounds after the case had to be adjourned six times as the defendant tried to change his plea and refused to co-operate with either the probation service or his own legal team.

Southwark Crown Court heard that Khan tried to grab the victim’s bottom and kiss her and claimed his hand over her mouth to muffle her screams.

He only let his victim go when a resident on the street heard a noise and shouted at Khan.

Khan originally pleaded guilty, but initially held up the first court hearing when he tried to retract that plea.

He then told the court that he needed a psychiatric report because life in prison had ‘driven him mad’.

The case was delayed on a third occasion when Khan refused to co-operate with the probation service because he was apparently convinced that they were immigration officers.

In April, Khan’s lawyer decided she could no longer act for him, creating further problems.

He still refuses to co-operate fully with his legal team and his barrister could offer no mitigation for him.

His sentencing finally went ahead today, after further delays caused by Khan’s refusal to be joined in the dock by an interpreter.He finally confirmed his guilty plea today, but still shouted ‘conspiracies’ at the judge as sentence was passed.

Prosecutor David Ryan told the court: ‘The victim had been out with her boyfriend and friends. She had left them at about 2am, returning by bus to go home.’When she got off the bus, somebody approached her.

‘It seems as if the defendant grabbed her from behind and tried to grab her bottom and kiss her. She tried to get his hand off her face but she could not remove it.

‘She was lying on the ground with the defendant on top of her. She kept trying to remove his hand – she couldn’t breath.

‘He said something like “don’t worry, it won’t be long, be nice, don’t scream”.’

Khan then began to rub himself on the defenceless woman, the court heard.    Mr Ryan added: ‘A resident on that street heard what he thought was a disagreement. Her shouts got more serious and the female sounded more distressed and he could see this and he see the back of someone lying on her.’ He shouted and the defendant then got up and ran away.’Khan frequently swore and shouted ‘conspiracies’ throughout the hearing.

Sentencing Khan, Judge Peter Testar said: ‘This is an extremely serious sexual assault and the ordeal for the complainant has been very grave, despite the fact that she did not have to go into the witness box.

‘It was only on the day of the trial that the defendant pleaded guilty. His attitude metamorphosed into denial of the offence.’

Khan, of no fixed address, received five years detention in a young offenders’ institute, with an extension period of three years.He will be transferred to an adult jail when he turns 21 and automatically deported when he serves his sentence.

‘This is an extremely serious sexual assault and the ordeal for the complainant has been very grave, despite the fact that she did not have to go into the witness box.’

Afghan Rape Victim Weds Rapist To Avoid Becoming An Outcast

Even now after 400 plus posts some things never cease to amaze me with the followers of Muhammed’s Islamic cult and how their minds must work in a completely different way to normal people. Maybe something to do with countless generations of in-breeding and Islamic brain washing from birth that does it. How they live their life and what they consider normal, to most would be considered severely retarded.

Take the Afghan women in here. Who became pregnant after being raped. Was jailed for adultery by force, due to stupid Islamic laws. Which is wrong in every sense without doubt. Then upon her release from prison tattooed the rapists name on herself and asked him to marry her to restore family honour. WTF how can marrying your rapist who you also ended up serving time because he raped you, restore any honour. If it was my daughter id rather she was a social outcast than do that. Or better still Id rather go restore my family’s honour myself by taking my AK47  and emptying the clip into the beast.

First she was jailed for adultery, now Afghan rape victim is forced to MARRY her attacker to restore family’s honour and avoid becoming a social outcast

  • Woman known only as Gulnaz was brutally raped by her cousin’s husband
  • But SHE was jailed for ‘adultery by force’ and had his daughter in prison
  • Despite being freed by President Karzai she faced becoming a social outcast
  • Finally married her attacker on Saturday at a family court in Kabul
  • Fears she could now suffer a life of domestic slavery as rapist’s second wife

PUBLISHED: 13:15, 5 February 2013 | UPDATED: 23:23, 5 February 2013

An Afghan woman who was jailed for adultery after being raped by her cousin’s husband has now been forced to marry the man to restore the family’s honour and avoid becoming a social outcast.

The 22-year-old woman, who is known only as Gulnaz, married her attacker last week in Kabul, after spending more than 13 months as a virtual prisoner inside a women’s shelter.

Her heartbreaking story highlights the desperate plight faced by thousands of women in Afghanistan, who despite years of efforts by western agencies, endure horrific abuse and have no effective recourse under the law.

She has now married her attacker after spending 13 months as a virtual recluse in a woman’s shelter

Gulnaz was found guilty of ‘adultery by force’ following the brutal attack in 2008 which left her pregnant. She was sentenced to two years in jail, which was later increased to 12 years on appeal.

A first release offer, which she eventually agreed to, stipulated she must marry her attacker.

However her sentence was then cut to three years after a third appeal, and, according to reports at the time, the requirement for her to marry the man, who himself was jailed for seven years, was dropped.

Gulnaz gave birth to her daughter in the Badam Bagh women’s prison in Kabul before President Hamid Karzai took the highly unusual step of freeing her with no pre-conditions in December 2011.

But free from prison, Gulnaz faced a life of isolation and poverty as mothers without husbands are shunned by their communities and their own families and become social outcasts.

It has now been suggested that she reluctantly accepted the terms of the deal that had been offered to her in prison and approached the rapist’s family to arrange terms.

While she was staying at the shelter she reportedly used a needle to tattoo her rapist’s name on her hand – a sign of love.

The marriage was formalised at a family court in Kabul on Saturday but many involved in the case fear Gulnaz will be consigned to a life of domestic slavery as the rapist’s second wife. There are even fears she could be killed to restore his family honour.

Heather Barr of Human Rights Watch Afghanistan said: ‘I think her concern is less for herself and more for her daughter and the discrimination she might face.

‘But it is difficult to imagine that the life that awaits them will be a pleasant one. Gulnaz will effectively become the second wife of the man that raped her.

Gulnaz faced a life of isolation and poverty as mothers without husbands are often shunned by their communities and their own families and become social outcastsGulnaz faced a life of isolation and poverty as mothers without husbands are often shunned by their communities and their own families and become social outcasts

‘Sadly there are dozens and dozens of these cases and a seriousl failure by the government to take them seriously.

‘President Karzai has brought in laws which make rape a crime and make child marriage a crime but there is very little effort made to enforce them and the people who continue to commit these crimes enjoy impunity.’

Gulnaz’s case had been condemned widely by human rights groups. An online petition started by Motley has been signed by more than 6,000 people.

Her lawyer, American Kimberly Motley said Gulnaz had been ‘systematically brainwashed’ by Afghan officials, some of whom were women, into agreeing to the marriage and that she remained concerned about the future..

Her story was to form part of an EU-funded documentary about Afghan women in prison but its release was banned on the grounds it would adversely affect European relations with the Afghan government.

The filmmakers also  feared it might compromise the safety of the women involved because it showed their identity.

Director Clementine Malpas told the Times she believed that Gulnaz had married to give her daughter a chance for a future.

She said: ‘Marrying the man she told us had raped her isn’t what we had hoped for Gulnaz but the current cultural context of Afghanistan leaves very few options, especially for a woman with a child out of wedlock’.

Under the rule of the Taliban between 1994 and 2001, women were stripped of many of their rights and forced to wear a burqa in public at all times.

The were banned from employment, from appearing in public without a male relative and from speaking loudly in public on the grounds that no stranger should hear a woman’s voice.

2 Afghan Savages Behead a 14Year Old Girl With A Knife

Were almost in 2013 now,so why on earth in the Muslim world are there such barbaric medieval acts of violence,rape and murder all so common for such little reason against defenceless women. To cut a 14 yo girls head off with a knife is just an act of pure savagery, A long and painful  death for the young girl which the 2 Afghan monsters must of been getting off on doing it in some sick perverse way because of the time it would take to cut through muscle and bones with a small knife is a great deal longer and more gruesome than putting a bullet straight in her head and being done with it.

The reason they killed her…because her dad refused them to marry her because she was to young. Are these people right in the head. Arent you meant to love and care for somebody you wish to marry. Because that’s the weirdest kind of loving somebody i have come across. The serious backwardness of Muslims again. Their brains definitely function different to most normal peoples. I blame a lifetime of the barbaric evil of Islam drummed into them from being born coupled with generations of interbreeding and incest going on. Resulting in extremely low IQ’s and a distorted way of looking at life almost childlike. I want…..Ill take even if its wrong to…..Its OK i don’t mind the punishment because i got what i wanted.

Two Afghan Men Arrested After Reportedly Beheading Teen Girl Who Refused Their Marriage Proposals | TheBlaze.com

A young girl has reportedly been beheaded by relatives in Afghanistan after she refused to accept their marriage proposals. The teen, named Gisa, was decapitated with a knife on Tuesday, police say. Following the gruesome crime, two men named Sadeq and Massoud – purportedly close relatives who live near the victim — have been arrested.

After going to get water at a nearby well, the young girl was purportedly attacked by the men and murdered. Prior to the incident, Gisa’s father told both Sadeq and Massoud that they could not marry the teen, as his daughter was too young.

“Our investigation shows those who killed her were people who wanted to marry her,” police confirmed in an interview with the BBC.

“People were harassing the family and asking for her hand. When she refused, they did this to her,” added a police official.

Media accounts have differed surrounding the girl’s exact age, but most agree that she was either 14 or 15. Details continue to be unclear surrounding the exact events that led to the beheading.

Afghanistan continues to experience gender-specific crimes. The Sun provides a recap of some other troubling events that have unfolded in recent months:

Extreme violence against women and girls remains a major problem in the conservative Muslim nation more than a decade after Coalition troops brought down the notoriously brutal Taliban regime.

Earlier this month, four policemen were jailed for 16 years for raping a young woman in the same province.

Last month a 20-year-old woman was beheaded by her husband’s family in the western province of Herat after she refused to become a prostitute, police said.

Four people were arrested over the brutal killing.

And in September, five people were arrested over the public flogging of a 16-year-old girl for allegedly having an affair.

Officials are investigating Gisa’s murder, as outrage over the crime continues.

Afghan Lodger who raped 12-year-old Hayes schoolgirl jailed for 14 years and will be deported

Yet another  Muslim child rapist guilty of a horrific sex crime against a child. The ” foreign student” from Afghanistan punched then raped the child when she returned from school to the house he was lodging at in Hayes.  It never ceases to amaze me how many ” foreign students”  from backward Muslim nations like Afghanistan and Pakistan keep appearing in the headlines as sexual predators responsible for sicking crimes against women and children. It would be interesting to know the figures of non British nationals ” Muslim students” who are currently residing n the UK. I somehow get the feeling that its being exploited as a backdoor into Britain.

Lodger who raped 12-year-old Hayes schoolgirl jailed for 14 years and will be deported

Child rapist: Ahmed Shirinzoy

26 November 2012

A lodger who raped a 12-year-old girl in her London home was today jailed for 14 years.

Ahmed Shirinzoy, 22,  was found guilty last month of two counts of raping a child after a trial at Isleworth Crown Court.

The court heard that Shirinzoy, an Afghan national,  was lodging at an address in Hayes when his 12-year-old victim arrived home from school.

He approached the girl pretending he wanted to ask to borrow the family’s vacuum cleaner but began making advances before punching her several times and then assaulting her.

The girl managed to escape and raise the alarm after the incident at around 4pm on Tuesday 29 May.

Police were called and Shirinzoy was arrested a short time later at the address.

He was interviewed by detectives but denied the girl’s claims.

Shirinzoy insisted that he had visited a friend who had given him a drink spiked with something which caused him to lose his memory.

Toxicology tests later disproved Shirinzoy’s lies – as did DNA evidence taken from his victim.

A judge today jailed him for 14 years and ordered him to be deported at the end of his sentence.

Detective Constable Lucy Mawdsley, of the Sapphire sex crimes squad, said: “Shirinzoy is quite obviously a predatory sex offender who subjected his victim – a child – to the most horrendous of ordeals.

“I would like to pay tribute to this young girl who was incredibly brave and courageous in reporting the rape to the police and having the strength to give evidence against him.

“I hope that his sentence today gives other victims confidence that Sapphire are here for them, will believe them and will conduct our investigations professionally.

“We want rapists and those committing other sex offences to know that our dedicated teams are committed to ensuring we arrest them – I hope that Shirinzoy’s conviction today helps to reinforce that message.”
