Pakistani Immigrant Mohammed Ansar Jailed For Sex Attack

Pakistani immigrant Mohammed Ansar has been jailed for a sex attack on a lone female in Keighley, West Yorkshire. Even a pregnant wife and a young child wasn’t enough to stop the Pakistani pervert from keeping his deviant sexual urges at bay. 

Alone the four year prison sentence is not justice being served. There is one big thing missing….a one way plane ticket to Pakistan on his release from jail.

Keighley takeaway worker jailed after night-time attack on woman

Keighley News: Keighley takeaway worker jailed after night-time attack on womanKeighley takeaway worker jailed after night-time attack on woman

A takeaway worker who attacked a lone woman at the dead of night with intent to rape her has been jailed for four years.

Mohammed Ansar, 33, who came to the UK from Pakistan for an arranged marriage, assaulted his vulnerable victim as she walked home from a night out at 2.30am last August Bank Holiday Monday.

The father-of-one, whose wife was away at the time, tried to force the woman into his car after spotting her sitting on steps on Highfield Lane, Keighley.

Ansar, who lives on nearby Highfield Road, pushed her over a fence, chased her across a park, threw her to the ground and grabbed at her knickers.

The businesswoman, in her 30s, fought him off by hitting him on the head with her high-heeled shoes.

Ansar was convicted by a jury at Bradford Crown Court last month of battery with intent to commit a sexual offence and remanded in custody for sentence. He was cleared of attempted rape.

Today, Recorder of Bradford, Judge Roger Thomas QC, praised Ansar’s “robust and resourceful” victim.

He told the defendant: “I am utterly and wholly satisfied that the intent you must have had in your mind was to rape her.”

The court heard the woman had been left traumatised with night-time panic attacks.

She was now very careful and cautious when socialising and did not stay out late.

It was the most terrifying moment of her life when Ansar grabbed at her under clothing and she felt anger and hatred for him.

Ansar’s barrister, Jayne Beckett, said he came to the UK three years ago to marry.

He and his wife had a young daughter and were expecting another child.

His supportive family had been deeply hurt by what he had done.

Judge Thomas told Ansar: “You saw that young woman and you quite obviously decided you would have some sort of sexual way with her. She was alone, she had had a drink and she was vulnerable.”

He continued: “It was a sustained physical assault with premeditation that amounted to a quite terrifying ordeal for her.”

After the case, Detective Constable Stacey Atkinson, of Bradford District Reactive CID, said: “Ansar tried to force his victim into his car and then pursued her after she fled from him.

“This must have been very traumatic for her and we would like to thank her for the courage she has shown in reporting this to the police.

“We are pleased with the sentence which has been passed down and hope it will help to give the victim some closure.”

Racist Homophobic Family Jailed: ‘You’ve Messed With The Wrong Muslims!’

Six members of the same Muslim family from Blackburn have been jailed for the violent attack of a white non-Muslim lesbian who was in a gay relationship with their other sister who they had planned to marry off to a cousin. Many a Muslim apologist will try to claim their actions was purely honour based because of the arranged marriage they had planned. Yes maybe that was a contributory factor in what happened but by no means the only.

This was a hate crime pure and simple. They targeted the victim because she was white, non Muslim and a lesbian. Racist, Religious, LGBT.  Take your pick of any of the three hate crimes because this was all of them. The Muslim bullies were heard saying  ‘you’ve messed with the wrong Muslims.’ Even the judge before sentencing made reference to that.

Below is what the judge said. (from another source as this wasn’t mention in the Mail article attached further down this post)

Sentencing, Judge Graham Knowles QC told the siblings: “Your anger that a white non-Muslim woman was in a relationship with your sister brought your determination to destroy that relationship and force your choices on her and her partner.

The judge said the offences were partly motivated by the defendants’ perception that Miss Harrison “lacked your religious beliefs”.

“This was a relationship that they disapproved of and felt brought shame on their family.”

Why wasn’t this prosecuted as a hate crime also ???  Because they are Asian and Muslim ???   Does being a minority group automatically make you unable to be a racist bigot, where you can only be the victim and not the perpetrator or something ???

Because that is how the double standards of the whole of the justice system make it look like from here. If you make a twitter comment  to a certain Muslim apologist who has a habit of twisting every atrocity committed by Muslims into a surge of anti Muslim attacks saying he is  “a mendacious grievance-mongering taqiyya-artist” then you may find yourself like Tim Burton getting charged with a hate crime. Despite criticism and expressing your opinion not even being a crime.

Then on the other hand you have idiots like Anjem Choudary pissing half the country off with his praise for the Woolwich Killers. Or the 100 of on-line messages Tommy Robinson received on a weekly basis threatening to kill him or rape his family which he forwarded to the police which they never made one arrest over. The 2 tier law favouring Muslims need sorting ASAP. This is Britain where its meant to be one law for all.

Sarah Harrison, 35, was targeted as she left work in Blackburn, Lancashire. As she was attacked, one of the siblings shouted: ‘you’ve messed with the wrong Muslims.’

The women’s sister Nazma Ditta, 27, one of six sisters and three brothers, had been due to enter into an arranged marriage.

But Nazma had begun a secret relationship with Miss Harrison when both women worked at a clothes shop in the town.

Miss Harrison was confronted by sisters Atfah Ditta, 32, and Ghazala Ditta, 31, who got out of a parked silver Toyota Corolla car on June 20 last year.

They were joined by another sister Nighat Morris, 38, and brother Tahmoor Ditta, 26, who produced a metal tool which he brandished at a work colleague of Miss Harrison.

The three women then assaulted Miss Harrison who was dragged around by her hair and kicked as they tried to force her into the car.

The victim was repeatedly punched in the face and to her arms in an effort to remove her handbag and force her into the vehicle.

Her bag was taken from her but she managed to prevent herself being dragged into the car by holding on to its sides.

She was left standing at the side of the road as the group got back into their vehicle and drove away.

In the days leading up to the attack, members of the Ditta family had confronted the victim at her workplace and asked her about the whereabouts of their sister.

They also asked her work colleagues about where she parked her car and waited at various locations for her to leave work.

Miss Harrison later told police: ‘I can’t work comfortably now and I think about people throwing acid in my face. Anyone Asian I don’t know could be associated with the people who attacked me. I have trouble sleeping.

‘I feel uncomfortable sleeping on my back because of where I was kicked. My temple still hurts from where I was punched. I have a permanent reminder of the attack by the scar under my eye.

‘I have to sell my house and move somewhere where Nazma’s family won’t find us. I have had to find a different job which is not easy because I loved my work.’

Today the siblings appeared at Preston Crown Court.

Ghazala Ditta, Atfah Ditta and Nighat Morris pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to conspiracy to commit actual bodily harm, attempted kidnap and robbery. They were all jailed for five years and four months.

Tahmoor Ditta pleaded guilty to the above charges and also admitted assault and possession of an offensive weapon and was sentenced to six years.

Two other sisters, Tosif Ditta, 35, and Nayyar Mehmood, 37 had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit actual bodily harm and were imprisoned for three-and-a-half years.

The children’s mother, Rani Ditta, 55, had been charged with conspiracy to kidnap but in November the prosecution offered no evidence against her.

The court heard Nazma was only girl in her family who was unmarried and several potential suitors had been found for her.

Tamoor Ditta admitted conspiracy to commit actual bodily harm, attempted kidnap, robbery, possession of an offensive weapon and battery and was jailed for six years

Tosif Ditta got three and a half years

But she had already begun a relationship with Miss Harrison after meeting at the USC clothing store in Blackburn shopping mall.

Nazma was so fearful of being discovered, she spent six months secretly and slowly moving her belongings into Miss Harrison’s home 26 miles away in Blackpool so it wouldn’t be noticed.

Prosecutor Mr Richard Haworth said: ‘The family had a traditional arranged marriage planned for her and had already suggested a suitor, her cousin to whom the family believed she was betrothed but whom she had already rejected.’

Suspicions about the lovers began after a niece of Miss Ditta spotted messages and photos shared on her relative’s mobile phone. Miss Ditta denied an affair but was ordered to stop any sleepovers at the homes of friends.

A date was set for her wedding which Nazma agreed to – whilst secretly planning to leave.

Mr Haworth added: ‘There had already been regular discussions about marrying off Nazma.

‘But knowing that the family would react very badly to the news that she was gay and that she was in an ongoing relationship, Nazma had been slowly moving her belongings from the family home over to Miss Harrison’s property.

‘She further decided to terminate her employment and moved into Miss Harrison’s property.

‘She left a note to inform her family she had got a new job in Manchester and was moving out. She left her email address as her contact details and changed her phone number.’

Nazma’s family later went to the shop asking about her whereabouts and repeatedly emailed her until she confessed she was gay.

A family meeting was later held at a coffee shop in Blackburn during which Miss Ditta said she would not get married but agreed to return home to say her goodbyes.

When she left again she received text messages from her brother Tasawar saying: ‘I am dead to you. Delete my number I hope you’re happy with sarah.’

Her sister Ghazala sent a message saying: ‘selfish stupid bitch. Just wait till I get hold of you.’

Later members of the family confronted Miss Harrison at her workplace, asking her about the whereabouts of her partner. They also asked her work colleagues about where she parked her car and waited at various locations for her to leave work.

Nayyar Mehmood got three and a half years

Nighat Morris, who attacked Miss Harrison got five years four months

Mr Haworth said: ‘The attack was virtually all captured on CCTV. The three sisters simultaneously attacked and attempted to physically bundle Miss Harrison into the back of the car.

‘She was punched and kicked and had her hair gripped and pulled repeatedly.

‘Both Miss Harrison and Shah Ahmed refer to the family saying “get her in, get her in, you’ve messed with the wrong Muslims, we’re going to kill you” and “get her bag, get her bag”.

‘The attack on Miss Harrison was a brutal sustained and a pre-planned group action and it nearly succeeded.

All claimed they acted out of concern for their sister. Defence lawyer Adam Watkins, defending Tosif, said: ‘She did what she did out of a misjudged sense of what was right for her sister. It was a misguided sense of love.

Graham Blower for Nayyar said: ‘This would have happened to Miss Harrison if she was Mr, Mrs, black, white, pink or orange.’

But Judge Graham Knowles QC said: ‘This is a case about power and contol. It is about striking terror and attempting to control not just the body but the will. This was a group ambush and you struck with the terror that all of you intended.’

An Olympian fears she will be killed if deported from Britain after living on the streets to escape an arranged marriage.

Swimmer Ayouba-Ali Sihame, 18, represented the tiny African island nation of Comoros during the London Games.

But she ended up in a prison cell after fleeing the athlete’s village in a desperate bid to avoid being wed to a twice-married 60-year-old man.

Her mother told her she was being sold and must give up her sporting career just days before she flew to London.

She said the sportswoman’s ‘celebrity’ status had pushed up her value in the poverty-stricken strict Islamic community.

Sihame, who has also represented her country at volleyball, walked out of the Olympic Park after failing to qualify for the 100 metre freestyle semi-finals and coming 48th overall.

She spent weeks living rough in the capital before travelling to Dover and attempting to hitch a lift and cross the Channel with a fake French passport.

But she was caught by French border control officers who spotted that she was not a woman named Mouniate Mhoussini.

Sihame faces being transferred to an immigration centre pending deportation within a fortnight after completing half an eight month prison sentence.

She fears for her life after her brother told her in a telephone conversation that she has brought ‘shame’ on the family.

Her solicitor Andrew Gurney said Sihame did not realise she was entitled to apply for asylum as soon as she entered Britain.

He said: ‘Comoros is a strict Muslim country. Ayouba-Ali was beaten from time to time.

‘Ayouba-Ali was allowed to practice swimming, but she had to wear a full swimming costume and always be supervised by her brother.

‘She had gained celebrity status in Comoros – she was one of just seven athletes to come over for London 2012.

‘Her high profile meant her parents could get a higher price for her in marriage. She was told if she did not take part in the marriage there would be violence or death.

‘And she was told that she would have to give up her swimming career when she was married.

‘She could not confide in anyone about what was happening, but she managed to speak to a friend and get false French documents.

‘Since the Olympics she has spoken to her brother. He has told Ayouba-Ali that if she returns to Comoros she will be killed because of the shame she has brought on the family.

‘We deal with this sort of offence all the time, but I have never dealt with a case like Ayouba-Ali ‘s.’

Sihame was jailed at Canterbury Crown Court earlier this week after admitting using a false immigration document.

She has applied for asylum from her cell at HMP Bronzefield, in Ashford, Surrey, but was warned she could be deported within weeks.

The court was told that had the athlete applied for asylum in the first place she would have probably been granted leave to stay because of the persecution she faces at home.

Prosecutor Ian Foinette said she was stopped by French border control officers at Dover on October 5, more than two months after she competed at the Aquatics Centre.

He told the court: ‘When her passport was examined it was realised it was what is colloquially called a lookalike – a document with a photograph which resembles the person with the document.

‘She was arrested for trying to leave the UK, cautioned but gave no reply. Later on, during the course of her interview, she revealed she had been in the UK from Comoros, representing the country in the Olympics.

‘She had then absconded from the Olympic village because she feared that if she were to return to her country she would be required to take part in an arranged marriage.’

Mr Gurney added: ‘She had been told she had been in effect sold into an arranged marriage to a man 42 years her senior.

‘She says she was told that if she didn’t take part in the marriage she would suffer serious harm.

‘She comes from a very strict religious background and suffered regular beatings and she had every reason to believe that if she didn’t take part in that marriage she would suffer serious harm.’

Foreign nationals can be granted asylum in Britain under if they can prove that they have a ‘well-founded fear of persecution’.

Asylum can also be granted under the European Convention on Human Rights if a foreign national can prove there is a ‘real risk’ they face torture or other inhumane treatment.

The UK Border Agency website states: ‘If you do not qualify for asylum but we think there are humanitarian or other reasons why we should allow you to stay in the UK, we may give you temporary permission to stay here.’

Comoros, which is situated between Mozambique and Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, has a hard-line Muslim population of around 754,000.

The country, which is among the poorest in Africa, is heavily dependent on foreign aid and allows multiple marriages.

Official records reveal Sihame came last in the 100m freestyle heats on August 1 with a time of 1.14.40, more than 20 seconds behind the fastest competitor.

Teenage girl was also having an illicit relation with her sister’s husband; father pardons both

A teenage girl managed to escape to her brother-in-law with whom she was having an illicit relationship after she was married to a rich 75-year-old man by her father for five thousand Egyptian pounds per night.

The 16-year-old Noura was married to an old rich man for money by her father but she managed to escape after spending three days with the old husband. She went straight to her sister’s husband after the escape as both were involved in illicit relationship for nearly a year and she had become pregnant, said Al Youm Al Sabea’a newspaper.

Noura was reportedly treated badly by her 75-year-old husband.

The girl’s brother-in-law, identified as Nadi, told police that his wife has four siblings and Noura is the youngest of them.

He said his father-in-law used to marry daughters to rich men in return for money and Noura was also married to this rich old man for 15 thousand Egyptian pounds for three nights.

After Noura was married and her father had received the money, she went with her husband to his flat. She spent three days there and then escaped and contact her brother-in-law to meet in a faraway place, Nadi said.

He told police that Noura had asked him not to disclose the matter to his wife – her sister – and she was in a bad psychological state.

He said he was surprised when she told him that she had escaped and would never go back to her family house and instead asked him to rent a place for her in a village, fearing that she might be married again to an old man in return for money.

Nadi said he rented a small flat where he spent the first night with her where she told him about the tough time she spent with the elderly man for three days. “She said the old man was a drug addict.”

On the other hand, the brother-in-law told police that he was also trying to convince his wife and Noura’s parents that he’s looking for the missing girl everywhere.

Noura’s father came to know when a neighbour saw Noura at a clinic and informed him. Noura had gone to maternity clinic and her baby bump was visible.

The father informed the police and arrested Noura and Nadi. Noura acknowledged that she was having an illicit affair with her sister’s husband and was pregnant.

But Noura’s father pardoned both of them and police released them after reconciliation.

British Muslim mosque leaders agree to marry girls of 12

To those of us who know a little about the way Islam really works, then this story about imams based here in the UK willing to marry 12 year old girls to older Muslim men will hardly come as a surprise.As this is a common topic which those of us who oppose political Islam often bring up about Islam allowing sick acts such as paedophilia  and forced marriages under sharia law. 

For those non Muslims who have dismissed claims by anti Islamists bout how Islam is rife with paedophilia and other sexual perversions or believed Muslim apologists or a biased media that things such as this are made up to make Islam look bad….well heres your proof that forced marriages,child brides marrying older Muslim paedos all with the blessing of the Islamic religious leaders at the mosque whom are  the community leaders.

The British child brides: Muslim mosque leaders agree to marry girl of 12… so long as parents don’t tell anyone

  • Two imams were prepared to officiate wedding of underage girl
  • More than 1,000 of the 8,000 forced marriages of Britons each year are believed to involve girls of 15 or under

British Muslim clerics are willing to carry out sharia marriages involving child brides as young as 12, an investigation has found.

Two imams said they would be prepared to officiate at the wedding of an underage girl to a man in his twenties, despite fears the pair would later have sex.

The revelations have led the Home Office to confirm that such ceremonies will be examined in the Government’s forthcoming Bill to outlaw forced marriages.

More than 1,000 of the 8,000 forced marriages of Britons each year are believed to involve girls of 15 or under, with one case last year allegedly involving a girl of five.

The clerics were approached by man posing as the father of a 12-year-old  who wanted her to marry to prevent her being tempted into a decadent Western lifestyle.

Imam Mohammed Kassamali, of the Husaini Islamic Centre in Peterborough, stressed the need for secrecy with such a ceremony.

He allegedly said: ‘If it (the marriage) was not possible, I would  have told you straight away… I would love the girl to go to her husband’s houses (sic) as soon as possible, the younger the better.

‘Under sharia (Islamic law) there is no problem. It is said she should see her first sign of puberty at the house of her husband.

‘The problem is that we cannot explain such things (the marriage) if the girl went tomorrow (to the authorities).

‘The other thing is the underage thing and if tomorrow the girl is,  let’s say coerced or forced into  this, and she goes and reports it to the police then she will put all of us into the problems.’

Campaigners argue that children can't decide whether they want to be marriedCampaigners argue that children can’t decide whether they want to be married (posed by model)

He also urged the father to encourage the newlyweds to ‘delay the togetherness’, meaning postpone  having sex.

Abdul Haque, a retired imam who still officiates at weddings at Shoreditch mosque, East London, reportedly agreed to carry out the ceremony after evening prayers on Wednesday.

‘Tell people it is an engagement but it will be a marriage,’ he told an undercover Sunday Times reporter.

‘In Islam, once the girl reaches puberty the father has the right, the parents have the right, but under the laws of this country if the girl complains and says her marriage has been arranged and she wasn’t of marriageable age, then the person who performed the marriage will be jailed as well as the mother and father.’

He explained how the Prophet Muhammad had married a seven-year-old girl before adding: ‘We are his followers, and that is what you have to explain (to your daughter).’

It is not illegal for clerics to perform Islamic marriages, even when one or both of those marrying are under 16.

Such marriages are not recognised in British law, so civil formalities can take place only if both are over 16.

Islamic law allows a couple to have sex after marriage but, as the legal age of consent is 16, a husband can be prosecuted for rape if he has sex with an underage girl.

The Forced Marriage Unit, set up in 2005, dealt with 1,468 cases last year with 205 involving children under  the age of 15.

Farooq Murad, of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: ‘We are strongly opposed to it on the basis that it is illegal under the law of the land where we are living and even under sharia it is highly debatable.’

After being confronted, Kassamali said he would not have performed the marriage without the girl’s consent and would have sought legal advice. Haque declined to comment.

The Home Office said: ‘Child marriage is totally unacceptable and illegal. Perceived cultural sensitivities and political correctness cannot and will not get in the way of preventing and uncovering such abuse.’

David Cameron has piled pressure on Pakistan to catch the killers of a British family who were gunned down in cold blood following the breakdown of an arranged marriage.

Tania Yousaf, 22, and her parents Mohammed, 51, and Parviaz, 49, from Nelson, Lancashire, died in a hail of bullets from three armed gunmen in Gujrat in 2010.

They had been in Pakistan for the wedding of one son but died because of a bitter dispute over the pending divorce of another, police say.

However, nobody has ever been brought to justice since two of the suspected killers were arrested – with their mother – but went on the run when they were granted bail.

As the trio were ambushed by the machine gun-wielding gang, mother-of-two Tania was shot in the legs, but managed to run for cover.

The shooters tracked her down after killing Mr and Mrs Yousaf and then pulled out a mobile phone and ordered her to speak to her husband before blasting her up to 100 times.

Police say they were killed over the breakdown of 10-year arranged marriage between Tania's brother and a cousin The cousin's mother and two brothers were arrested but went on the run after being granted bail and have not been seen sinceKilled: Mother Parviaz, 49, was also murdered in the attack believed to have been retribution for the breakdown of the 10-year arranged marriage of their son Kamar

Police believe the slayings were retribution for the breakdown of a 10-year arranged marriage between one of Mr and Mrs Yousaf’s three sons, Kamar, and his cousin Nabeela.

Days later, Nabeela’s mother, Rahmat Bibi, and two brothers, Shiraz and Naveed Arif, were arrested in connection with the crime.

But the brothers, believed to have been among the gunmen, fled as soon as they were granted bail. They have not been seen since.

The mystery deepened in April this year when Tania’s grandmother, Fukraz Begum, was beaten to death in Gujrat in what police believe was a connected attack.

Now the Prime Minister has demanded answers from the Pakistani government after two years without any further developments.

Writing to Andrew Stephenson, the family’s local MP, Mr Cameron said: ‘I cannot begin to imagine how difficult this must be for the families of those involved.

‘I fully appreciate that the families will want to see the people responsible for these crimes brought to justice.

‘This is the least that they deserve and I can understand their frustrations with the slow pace of the investigations.’

He said he dispatched delegates from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to step up pressure on the Pakistani authorities over the summer and promised to meet Mr Stephenson when Parliament reassembles in Autumn to update him on progress.

‘As you are aware the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Ministers have taken an active interest in both cases, and in the wider issue of the safety of British nationals in Pakistan,’ he added.

Aftermath: Pakistani relatives and residents carry a cot with the body of Mohamamd Yousaf near the town of Gujrat in eastern Pakistan

The murders took place in the Gujrat district of north east Pakistan where the Yousaf family had travelled for a wedding of another one of their sons, Asad, then 23, to his fiance, Roma.

Furniture manufacturer Mr Yousaf and his wife and daughter, a former Pendle Council worker, had stayed in Pakistan after the wedding to visit friends and relatives while the rest of the family returned to the UK.

They were in the village of Murirya, paying respects at a relative’s grave site when the raiders struck.

Tough talk: The Prime Minister has demanded answers from the Pakistani government after two years without any further developments in the hunt to catch the killers

Abdul Hussain, a cousin and family spokesman, said after attack: ‘[Shooting Tania in the legs] could have been on purpose or they could have just been spraying bullets and got her in the legs.

‘She hid, so they dealt with the parents and then went after her. They knew she was somewhere in the graveyard.

‘The conversation between Tania and her husband was very minimal. He heard her beg for her life and then heard gunfire.’

Her brother Asad, 25, added: ‘She begged for her children and said she needed her two little boys […] and then they just shot her.’

Relatives have claimed Mr Yousaf was warned never to set foot in the village, which is home to the family of his son Kamar’s estranged wife Nabeela.

When Kamar and Nabeela, who lived in Nelson and have two children, split up in 2009, it triggered the feud which led to her brothers warning Mr Yousaf he faced ‘grave consequences’ if he ever returned to their home village.

But Mr Yousaf defied the warning after returning to Pakistan with his wife and daughter for the wedding of another of his sons in a village 15 miles away.

Responding to the Prime Minister’s call to action, Mr Stephenson said: ‘The government cannot go higher than the Prime Minister personally intervening.

‘Hopefully this will bring justice for the Yousafs and Fukraz Begum’s family closer and also ensure that other British citizens who suffer tragic losses in Pakistan do not have to go through the same prolonged ordeal.’

Senseless: Covered with a blanket, the body of one of the victims is carried away

 

Mohammad and Parviaz Yousaf and their daughter Tania were killed in a village in the district of Gujrat in north-east Pakistan

Pendle councillor Eileen Ansar, a relative of the Yousafs and friend of Fukraz Begum’s family, said: ‘I think it is great that the Prime Minister has personally intervened in these cases and that they have gone to the very top of government.

‘Hopefully this bring justice a step closer for the families and will ensure that British citizens who a victims of crime in Pakistan get simpler and speedier justice in the future.’

Girl attacked by her own Racist Muslim family for kissing white boy

For any doubters about what Islam is really all about should have a read of this article and have your eyes opened. For its not a counter jihadist patriot giving their opinions on whats wrong with Islam,its not even a non Muslims version of events. Its from a Muslim girls own mouth about her own family and their evil attempts to control every aspect of the young womans life and the violence she recieved off her own family when she was caught kissing a white boy. This girl is one of the few Muslims that manage to break the iron grip from Islam and expose the inbuilt racism and violence that goes with it behind closed doors. Things which are common and 99% of the times keep away from the infidels deliberately and would be strongly denied if it did get out.

It must of took her alot of courage for her to do what she did only to be severely let down by the British justice system and its 2 tier policy that keep seeing. Less than a month ago there was much publicity about a case in Wales where a white British couple who were edl supporters were sent to prison for attacking their daughter for going with a blackman.  Yet here Judge Guy Boney told them he would treat them leniently, giving them each a conditional discharge and a fine making a complete mockery of justice

My family beat me and hacked off my hair for kissing a white boy

  • Shamima Akhtar was attacked by her siblings for kissing a boy on her 18th birthday
  • They assaulted her and now partner Gary and threatened to kill her
  • Shamima’s sisters and brother were convicted but not jailed for the assault

Assaulted: Shamina Akhtar and her partner Gary Pain were both beaten up by Shamina's siblings when she first kissed Gary at her 18th birthday party because they were racist bigots who dis approved of gary being a white non muslimAssaulted: Shamina Akhtar and her partner Gary Pain were both beaten up by Shamina’s siblings when she first kissed Gary at her 18th birthday party

Shamima Akhtar has got used to looking over her shoulder. Walking to work or shopping at the supermarket, she is watching closely, hoping ‘they’ aren’t following her.

‘I don’t go out much in daylight,’ she says. ‘And when I do, I go to places they’re unlikely to find me.’

It’s a horrible way to live, one made all the worse by the fact that they ‘they’ are 19-year-old Shamima’s family — who terrify her and from whom she is completely estranged.

Few could blame her, given what she’s been through.

Last year, three of her siblings — sisters Nazira, 29, Nadiya, 25, and brother Mohammed-Abdul, 24 — launched a sickening assault on Shamima, which culminated in her sisters slapping and punching her and hacking off her waist-length hair.

Shamima’s crime? Kissing a white boy at her 18th birthday celebrations.

Earlier this year, the trio were found guilty at Winchester Crown Court of actual bodily harm in a case that, the jury was told, centred on ‘honour-based domestic violence’.

While her Muslim family embraced certain aspects of Western life, behind the doors of their detached home in Basingstoke, Hampshire, strict Islamic law ruled.

The price for contravening those laws can be high indeed, as Cheshire schoolgirl Shafilea Ahmed discovered.

She found herself squeezed between two cultures — the Western one, which she wanted to embrace, and the Muslim one her parents wanted to impose upon her.

Last month, her parents were sentenced to life imprisonment for her brutal murder after she failed to toe the religious line.

Shamima’s fate was not so grim, but her fellow teenager’s story has prompted her to give her first interview and reveal how she lives in fear of further reprisals. ‘I’m frightened of my family,’ she says.

‘I don’t feel that what happened is the end, but the beginning. Whatever shame my family believe I brought on them is now a hundred times worse.’

Shamima has severed her links with her old world. Today, she shares a homely two- bedroom flat with Gary Pain, 23, the work colleague whose kiss prompted such outrage.

It was, she reveals sweetly, their first, and marked the start of a blossoming romance, despite its grim backdrop.

‘Gary is the one good thing to come out of this,’ she says. ‘I am happy, but at the same time I’ve lost my entire family and that’s hard. I can never go back.’

Her eyes brim with tears, and little wonder. It is a bewildering state of affairs for a young woman who, by her own admission, had for many years thought hers was a happy family.

Born and raised in London, Shamima was the youngest of six siblings raised by Abdul and Jahamara Kalam.

Abdul had come to Britain from his native Bangladesh aged four, while his wife had arrived here as his bride in an arranged marriage.

As Shamima grew up, her father found work running a café and as a taxi driver, while Jahamara stayed at home to raise their expanding family — Rugi, now 32, Ripon, 30, Nazira, Nadiya, Mohammed-Abdul and Shamima.

‘We were all close — we got along well and we enjoyed doing things as a family,’ says Shamima.

That all changed eight years ago, however, after her sister Nazira, then 21, fled back to the family home from her arranged marriage in Bangladesh, having been involved in a vicious row with her new husband on their wedding night.

Fleeing was an act of rebellion that sparked a year of furious family rows.

‘Everything changed within the family,’ says Shamima. ‘There were constant arguments and all the love and affection just seemed to vanish overnight.

‘I was bewildered. I was only 12 and couldn’t understand why every- thing had changed. In some ways, I still don’t’.

Her own life, meanwhile, was becoming increasingly miserable. ‘No one really talked to me within the family, and I was ignored. The only time my family spoke to me was to tell me what I couldn’t do.

‘I wasn’t allowed to do anything —  I couldn’t go on sleepovers, school trips, even to the park after school. I had school friends, but not proper friends. My life stopped at the school gates and after that I had no one to turn to.

‘Even if I did, I wouldn’t say anything. I’d been brought up to say nothing.’

Guilty: The ugly sisters. Racist muslims Nadiya Akhtar, 25, (right) and Nazira Akhtar, 29, were found guilty of actual bodily harm of their younger sister but to Shamima's disappointment they got away with a conditional discharge and a fine thanks to britains 2 tier justice where muslims get soft sentencesGuilty: Nadiya Akhtar, 25, (right) and Nazira Akhtar, 29, were found guilty of actual bodily harm of their younger sister but to Shamima’s disappointment they got away with a conditional discharge and a fine

Even so, at the age of 15, Shamima saved up her lunch money for months to enable her to buy a cheap mobile phone, allowing her to text the one or two girls she had become close to at school.

‘It was one small way of asserting my independence,’ she says. ‘I knew I didn’t want to live like the rest of the family, I just didn’t know how to achieve it. It seemed impossible.’

Following her GCSEs, Shamima’s parents wanted her to stay at home and help with the housework.

Her sister Rugi, though, stepped in and got her sister a job in a local department store in October 2009, arguing that the salary she would bring in would help the family.

‘I started on a contract, but within a few months I’d not only been given a permanent job but promoted to team leader,’ says Shamima.

‘It may sound like nothing, but it made me so proud. This was the first thing I’d done on my own.’ Outside work, however, Shamima’s life was as restricted as it had been before.

‘One of the family dropped me off at work and picked me up every day. I couldn’t go to any staff gatherings, Christmas parties, nothing,’ she says.

‘My family would even come in at random to check I was at work, and my salary was paid into my mother’s bank account. I was given just £10 a week of my own. It was suffocating. I was just a young girl trying to make her way in the world and I felt so trapped.’

As her confidence grew, however, Shamima started to become more daring.

‘I confided in my manager, who said he would cover for me. My family didn’t know my exact hours, so I would tell them I was going to work, then when I got there I would take off my uniform shirt, put on a top and just have a few hours doing what a normal teenage girl would do — going to the shops or to  the cinema.

Let down by British justice as her evil sisters get soft sentence because they are muslims which british people would be deemed racist for and imprisoned for a hate crime.

‘If my family popped in, my manager would tell them I was in the stockroom and couldn’t be disturbed. It was so liberating.’

Within a few months, Shamima had formed a close bond with a male colleague — presumably precisely what her parents most feared.

His name was Gary Pain, and from their first conversation there was  a spark.

‘I was Gary’s manager at first, and I liked him instantly,’ she says. ‘He was the first man to express a real interest in my life, and to listen to what I said. He treated me with respect.’

At the time, however, romance couldn’t have been further from Shamima’s mind.

And her family had already made it clear that she would be expected to have an arranged marriage.

‘I just tried to push it to the back of my mind. I still had two older sisters and thought they’d have to get married first, so I had time on my side,’ she says.

Then, in March last year, Shamima turned 18.

‘My parents had gone to Bangladesh, but before they left I asked if I could go for a meal to mark my birthday. My father agreed, but said that in their absence my sisters would act as my guardians and they would decide the time I had to return.’

After intense negotiation, it was agreed that Shamima could go for dinner with colleagues on April 1, between 8.30pm and 10.30pm, providing only women were present.

‘They thought they were being generous, but even then, they plagued me,’ says Shamima.

‘I had 22 missed calls and endless texts on a phone they’d bought me so they could check up on me.

‘It got so bad that in the end, one of my colleagues grabbed the phone, turned it off and said: “This is your night.” I was scared, but at the same time I felt thrilled, too. This was the most rebellious I had ever been.

‘We left the restaurant and went on to a bar, so my family didn’t know where I was.’

By midnight, when she begged for her phone back and turned it on, she had countless more missed calls.

‘I answered one call and it was Nazira, screaming down the phone.’

Shamima says that despite her own arranged marriage ending so badly, her elder sister had never shown any sympathy or understanding towards her youngest sibling.

‘They said they were coming for me now. I told them where I was.’ Gary, who had been present, walked her downstairs to the car park and it was there, she says, that they kissed for the first time.

‘He said “I’ve been waiting to do this all night” and he took my face in his hands. It was the most amazing feeling ever. Here was someone who just accepted me for who I was.’

She had little time to enjoy this feeling: within moments bright headlights swept into the car park and her siblings came rushing towards her.

‘It all happened so quickly,’ she says. ‘My brother grabbed Gary by the throat and my sisters dragged me into the car.

‘Nazira punched me in the head as soon as I got in — it was so  painful. They put the childlock on so I couldn’t escape and I heard my brother say: “We’re doing it tonight. Get the boys. Get the gun.” I was petrified.’

Back in the car park, Gary had been left, helpless, unable to do anything to intervene.

Back home, Shamima was dragged into the house by her hair and thrown to the floor, where her siblings started to kick her. ‘They were calling me a slag and a prostitute,’ she says, her eyes flooding with tears. ‘I was so scared I actually wet myself. I thought I was going to die.’

As she would later testify in court, she had good reason to: her brother came into the room with two knives and a hammer, telling his sister to choose one to use on her and one on ‘lover-boy’.

‘My only thought was that at least they didn’t know where Gary lived,’ she says. ‘My brother then said I had to be punished and that my hair must be cut.

‘It was my pride and joy and I begged them not to, but they bunched it up into a pony tail and hacked it to neck level,’ she recalls. Bleeding and bruised, Shamima was then forced to sleep on the floor.

Unbeknown to her siblings, however, she did have a secret weapon, in the form of her mobile phone she had invested in two years before. Surreptitiously, she texted Gary and asked him to call the police.

‘I locked myself in a bedroom by pushing a chest of drawers against a door,’ she says. ‘When the police came, I was so relieved I cried.’

Her siblings were arrested, while Shamima was taken to the police station to give a statement. She has never been home, or spoken to any member of her family since, though her parents have texted her asking her to return.

‘How could I after everything?’ she says. ‘I don’t want to see any of them ever again.

‘When I left the house that day, I didn’t look back. The police managed to get some of my belongings, and I went to stay at a friend’s house.’

She later went to live with Gary and his mother before the couple finally got a place of their own  earlier this year.

In the meantime, she has had to endure the difficulty of a trial. She gave evidence from behind a partition, but still struggled with the process of testifying against her family.

‘I felt very alone, even with Gary looking after me,’ she says. ‘Each of my siblings had their own barrister, so I was questioned over and over again for six days. I just wanted it to be over.’

Finally, after three weeks, the jury returned its verdict, rejecting the charges of false imprisonment, but finding the two sisters guilty of actual bodily harm and her brother guilty of assaulting Mr Pain.

Today, Shamima admits she had hoped her siblings would go to prison. Instead, when sentencing them, Judge Guy Boney told them he would treat them leniently, giving them each a conditional discharge and a fine.

‘It felt like the equivalent of a slap on the wrist,’ says Shamima. ‘I couldn’t have asked for more from the police, but part of me felt like a fool. I wanted the judge to send a message to families like mine.’

Instead, by agreeing to speak out she is doing that herself. Her hope, she says, is that people  can understand the difficulties of young women like her, caught between two worlds.

‘I don’t want people to feel sorry for me. I just want people to know this is going on behind closed doors,’ she says.

‘In some ways I’m one of the lucky ones. I’ve got Gary. But there are hundreds of girls like me out there who have no one to turn to.’
