Another Muslim Illegal Immigrant In Court For Grooming Schoolgirl

Another Muslim illegal immigrant in court because of his deviant behaviour towards under age school girls. He was in possession of a fake passport to try to falsify his entitlement to remain in the UK therefore if he is not on a plane out of the country on his first day released from prison then this country is worst than we ever imagined.

A few months back far left extremists from groups like Unite Against Fascism / Socialist Workers Party were all kicking off branding the government’s campaign to get illegal immigrants to give themselves up as racist. Calling for those being targeted to be allowed to stay in the UK.  Scumbags like this Muslim paedophile . Illegal immigrants are not victims, they are criminals in the very fact they are here illegally. This is England, not the dumping ground for the worlds vermin.

Suspended Sentence For Muslim Taxi Driver Who Attempted To Sexually Assault Copper With Sextoy

Here we go yet again………another suspended sentence for a Muslim taxi driver who attempted to sexually assault a female police officer working undercover courtesy of the UK’s most incompetent Judge, Beverley Lunt who is based at Burnley Crown Court.

Here are a couple of other soft Muslim sentences that i have previously posted about given by Judge Lunt:

East Lancs taxi driver attempted sexual assault on undercover police officer after waving vibrator at her

A TAXI driver has admitted attempted sexual assault on an undercover police officer 11 months after he was cleared of sexually assaulting a teenager.

Jamil Iqbal, 41, had invited the woman into the front seat, made ‘overt sexual remarks’ to her, waved a vibrator at her, asked her to touch it and told her he loved her.

Father-of-six Iqbal, who was at the wheel of his own car, had just dropped off his wife of 23 years and family when the incident happened and struck because he ‘couldn’t control himself that day’, Burnley Crown Court was told.

The attempt to touch the officer came after Iqbal was cleared of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl, by a jury, in January last year. Iqbal had been accused of groping the teenager in his cab in April 2010.

The defendant, of Humphrey Street, Brierfield, recently working as a part-time takeaway driver, admitted attempted sexual assault on the undercover officer, in December last year.
He was sentenced to 16 months in prison, suspended for two years, with two years’ supervision.

Iqbal was ordered to sign the sexual offenders register for 10 years and was made subject to a 10-year sexual offences prevention order, banning him from applying for a taxi licence, working as a taxi driver and from working as a driver on any other form of public transport.

Prosecutor Stephen Parker said last December 7, an undercover officer called Brierfield-based Victors Taxis, just after midnight. A cab arrived at 1.30am, displaying the logo of another firm.

The defendant said he was Victors, the officer got in and Iqbal started asking her personal questions, such as did she have a boyfriend. He gave her his mobile number and said he would pick her up later.

The officer, in company with a colleague, rang the mobile number on December 16, requesting drop-offs at pubs in Burnley and Barrowford. Iqbal arrived, not displaying the livery of any taxi firm. The officers got in and Iqbal explained he wasn’t really working. The first officer was dropped off in Burnley, leaving the second in the back of the vehicle. The defendant told her to get in the front but the officer declined.

Mr Parker said: “He then diverted the subject to sex, asking whether she liked sex or not, produced a plastic carrier bag from the front passenger seat and produced a vibrator from the carrier bag.

“He pushed the vibrator towards her, asking her to touch it. He asked her if she was scared and asked if she could keep it a secret.”

The prosecutor said by the time the defendant was dropping the officer off, he was saying: “I love you. I love you.” Iqbal was arrested minutes later.

Defending Iqbal, Afzal Anwar said his taxi licence had been revoked. The barrister continued: “He’s sorry. He does demonstrate clear remorse.”

Passing sentence, Judge Beverley Lunt said: “This undercover officer has probably saved some innocent victim from being subjected, as she was, to this extremely unpleasant incident.”

Disabled White Man From Burnley Attacked By ‘Asian’ In Muslim Area

Another disgusting and cowardly attack on a disabled person by a lowlife who is almost certainly Muslim despite the usual  description calling the scumbag ‘Asian’. Unfortunately these kind of sickening attacks are on the increase. This is the third  disabled person attacked in predominately Muslim areas within the space of a month . Similar incidents have recently happened in Luton and Bradford

As i have said previously. Uncivilized blood thirsty Muslims have a predatory instinct where they can sniff out the easy target in a split second. Disabled, OAPs, children and women are all fair game to them as without morales they know no boundaries .

Had this attack been a disabled Muslim hit and a white attacker there would be uproar from Muslims and the far left. TellMamas Fiyaz Mughal would be appearing on every stations news bulletins chatting on about it being a racist attack and a rise in islamophobic hate crimes. It would be national news instead of left to the local paper like this has to report.

 

Disabled man attacked in broad daylight in Burnley

Brian Tomlinson was punched in the face by an attacker trying to steal his mobile phone.

Brian Tomlinson was punched in the face by an attacker trying to steal his mobile phone.

 

A disabled Burnley man has slammed a thug who punched him in the face and tried to steal his mobile phone in broad 
daylight leaving him with a black eye.

 

Mr Brian Tomlinson (58) was walking across the park at Pit Top, Bank Hall, close to his Cobden Street home at 2pm last Friday when he was approached by a man who threatened him and demanded his mobile phone.

When he refused to hand it over, the attacker punched Mr Tomlinson in the eye before turning and running away.

Mr Tomlinson, who had been advised to start walking by his doctor to improve his health, was on his first stroll when he was attacked. He said the assault had made him nervous of going out alone and particularly walking through the park. He said he also wanted to warn others to be on their guard.

“He gave me such a lamp, he smashed my glasses and everything but I wasn’t going to give him my phone. He would be very lucky to get anything off me. I went out two days later with my wife, I didn’t want to walk across the park again. I was scared but I did it.

“There are a lot of old ladies who walk their dogs on the park, I just want them to be careful.”

The attacker is Asian, aged in his late teens or early 20s, of slim build and around 5ft. 7in. tall. He was wearing dark-coloured trousers, a dark hooded top and a scarf around his face. Anyone with information about the attack should contact police on 101.

Man Tried Abducting 2 Year Old Child From Burnley Park. Guess His Ethnicity

No surprises here that the beast who tried abducting a two year old in Burnley was described as ‘Asian’ meaning 99.9% chance he is Muslim

Police have released a description of a man alleged to have attempted to grab a toddler in Towneley Park.

The frightening incident happened just before noon yesterday (Wednesday) in woodland behind Towneley Hall when the man tried to grab the little girl’s arm.

The man has been described as being Asian, in his late thirties, 5ft. 4in., with short hair, wearing white shorts with a tribal blue pattern and a grey t-shirt.

Her father managed to pull the man away who then ran from the scene.

Police scoured the park afterwards and interviewed visitors. They are now studying CCTV in an attempt to catch the offender.

A police spokesman said: “We received a report of an incident at midday on Wednesday where it is alleged a man approached a two-year-old child while she was in the company of her father near to the tunnel of the forest walk in Towneley park.

“It was reported that he has taken hold of the girl by her arm and appeared to pull at her. At no time was the girl separated from her father and she was not hurt during the incident.”

Anyone with information can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Racist Muslim Father Beat Daughter With Tennis Bat For Seeing White Boy Gets Suspended Sentence

A racist Muslim father driven by his immense hatred for white people beat his 14 year old daughter with a tennis racquet  after he found out she had been dating a white schoolboy.  Yet the Blackburn man escaped a prison sentence with a suspended sentence,what is now the normal punishment in British 2 tier law  which favours Muslims.

Soft Muslim  sentences for crimes where indigenous people would be sentenced to prison happen all to often these days. In court it seems Muslim criminals are able to use their religion and ethnic background as a get out of jail free card. The racist father in this case used being from a “traditional Asian family” as part of his defence. Something that should make no difference as they live in England now and should live by British laws and values not expect special treatment.

The intolerant fathers comment to his daughter of : ” You have no faith in God. I’m going to kill you before the community find out.”  shows the true feelings within the Muslim communities about white British people. Racism and Islam go hand in hand. If a parent would rather beat and threaten to kill his own child rather than see her happy with a white boyfriend and risk upset his fellow Muslims, then there is something drastically wrong.

Anything other than a custodial sentence is a joke. The Muslim father beat physically abused his daughter on numerous occasions. One time even using the tennis racquet as a weapon. Despicable use of violence, even more so the fact his victim was a female and a child.  Making threats to kill is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Cruelty to persons under 16 is also carries a 10 year maximum prison sentence. Then on top of that it is also a crime committed because of his racist beliefs. Despite the victim being Muslim, he attacked her because her boyfriend had a different colour of skin and was an infidel.

When it comes  to 2 tier justice within the British legal system. The judges at Burnley Crown Court without doubt lead the way. Muslim criminals must rub their hands with glee knowing that their trials are being held there. One judge based there Beverley Lunt, could quite possibly the most incompetent crown court judge in the UK. Previously she gave a suspended sentence to a Muslim armed robber because he wanted ton be an imam. The judge even added during sentencing “in every other respect, the defendants behaved responsibly, properly, were well thought of and were good members of the community and society.” Stupidity must be catching

Muslim father beat daughter, 14 with tennis racket for relationship with white boy

The father-of-three from a “traditional Asian family” was later arrested after the boyfriend became concerned when the girl stopped sending text messages

A Muslim father slapped and beat his 14-year old daughter for “shaming” their community after he discovered she was having a secret affair with a white boy.

The 43-year-old became angry after his wife picked up the phone at home and overheard their child talking “in explicit terms” about her relationship with the 15-year old teenager.

During an angry confrontation, the father who wanted his daughter to succeed at university told her: “You have no faith in God. I’m going to kill you before the community find out.”

When she defied their pleas to stop the illicit romance, he “whacked” her with a tennis racket he kept in the boot of his car and in another incident, he grabbed her shoulders and started shaking her.

The father of three from a “traditional Asian family” was later arrested after the boyfriend became concerned when the girl stopped sending text messages. Now 16, she no longer lives at her family home in Blackburn, Lancs and is still seeing the boy.

At Burnley Crown Court, the father, who cannot be named for legal reasons to protect the identity of the girl, admitted child cruelty. He was given 21 weeks in jail, suspended for two years, with two years’ supervision and must pay an £80 surcharge.

The court heard the girl would have been expected to enter into an arranged marriage with a boy of her own culture. But, when she was 14, she began a relationship with the white boy.

Stephen Parker prosecuting said the girl knew her family would find it “very, very hard” to deal with the fact she was having sex, let alone the fact her boyfriend wasn’t from her culture.

She was found out after her shocked mother overheard her daughter talking about the fling over the phone after she picked up an extension and listened in.

Mr Parker, prosecuting, said the phone call caused a “great deal of tension” in the girl’s family and she went to stay with her uncle as her parents were in extreme distress.

When the victim’s parents had confronted her, she had denied being in a sexual relationship saying the phone comments, to a friend, were a fantasy. She then secretly continued to see the young man.

The girl’s parents were worried about whether the relationship was continuing and checked her phone and electronic equipment.

But the girl kept a “secret” second phone and was walking home from a day’s work experience outside lessons when was confronted by her father who stopped in his car in the street.

Mr Parker said: “He got out and shouted to her to hand the phone over. She pretended to throw it away, but hid it in her clothing.

“The girl was driven home, dragged from the vehicle, thrown to the floor and as she put it was “whacked” several times with the racket from the boot, as her father shouted : ” Are you going to give me the phone ?”

“She was taken inside, her school bag was searched and she was hit again with the bat and slapped.”

Mr Parker said weeks later, the girl secretly arranged to meet her boyfriend again but trouble broke out when her mother couldn’t find her.

When she got home, she was met on the stairway by her extremely angry father who hit her, causing her to fall.

On another occasion, a neighbour was supposed to take her to school, but the girl said she didn’t need a lift and arranged to walk to school with her boyfriend.

Her father later challenged her and shouted at her : ” You have no faith in God. I’m going to kill you before the community find out.” He then grabbed her shoulders and started shaking her.

Days after that, the girl’s mother found two more mobile phones with messages between the teenagers and the boyfriend became very concerned when the texts stopped.

He contacted the police and when the father was interviewed.

In mitigation , defence counsel Mohammed Nawaz, said the father was of “exemplary character” and was described by neighbours, family and others in the community in “warm, glowing and positive terms.”

Mr Nawaz said the father was a “loving and devoted father” who at first feared his daughter was being used by an older man.

The lawyer added: “He is now extremely contrite for his disgraceful behaviour. He didn’t want to stop her being educated and didn’t want her wed off at an early age. What he wanted for her was to get good grades and go to university.”

Passing sentence, Judge Jonathan Gibson told the father: “Many, indeed I would like to think, all parents would be horrified to find out that were the case.

“What cannot be allowed to happen is the crossing of the line, which happened in your case, of resorting to unlawful physical violence. What you did, on any view, went way beyond what would be regarded as acceptable discipline or punishment.”

Appeal: Police hunt missing sex offender

Detectives from Lancashire are asking for the public’s help in tracing a missing sex offender.

Dilshad Miah, 32, had been living in Burnley but police believe he could now be in Greater Manchester.

Miah was convicted of sexually assaulting a woman in November 2013 and was given a 19 days suspended sentence and placed on the sex offenders register until December 2020.

He is described as short at around 5ft tall, proportionate build with brown eyes and short dark hair.

“Sex offenders are managed in the community by police and partners, a system which aims to prevent them from committing further offences. If they do not comply with the obligations of their licence or notification requirements, then we will take positive action to locate them, as we are doing in this case.”

Muslim Receptionist Jailed After Getting Victims Details And Interfering In Grooming Trial

The full details are now emerging regarding Mohammed Imran Amjad and his Brierfield Muslim grooming gang. Sex predator Amjad and 5 of his Muslim buddy’s first appeared in court for trial just after the Rochdale case had just finished at Burnley. The grooming gang had been charged with rape and exploitation of a girl aged 13 at the time. A couple of days in the judge dismissed the jury and ordered trial at a later date with Manchester the new location.

Fast forward 9 months to trial. The girl changes her story suddenly. Amjad goes guilty to lesser charge of consensual sex with a minor  All the other rape and sexual charges against him and the gang are dropped with his mates getting acquitted. Then it came out that the girl had been bullied into changing her story by the Muslim sex fiends allowing them to get off with it.

The latest information to come to light is that Mohammed Imran Amjad girlfriend used her position working for the social services to get information about the victim and her family and passed it onto the groomers. For some reason until now it has all been kept hush-hush that she has been sentenced to 8 months in prison for doing so.

Seems to of worked out quite favourably for the sex ring and associates as the sentences they have received between them are far less than if those who were acquitted had been fund guilty and jailed also.

Kidnapped Eastern European Woman Was Forced Into Sham Marriage And Made A Sex Slave By Muslim

Slovakian woman goes out socialising with her friend for a night in their local town. They start talking to an Eastern European male who keeps giving her drinks. Next thing she knows she is in Yorkshire’s Islamic enclave of Bradford minus any id or documents. There her abductors sold the 20 year old female to local Muslim pervert Azam Khan to become his own personal non Muslim sex slave. Khan then took his new slave to Burnley where he kept her prisoner above a relatives shop. Where the control freak assaulted and raped the girl on numerous occasions. Obviously unable to find a willing bride to marry. Khan took his slave to the mosque in Brougham Street to take part in a forced marriage with him. Due to being drunk and not understanding a word being said during the ceremony the victim had no idea what was happening at the time.

It may sound like kind of film plot, but for the poor Slovak woman involved it was all very much real. It honestly wouldn’t surprise me if there was countless more similar cases that have yet to be found out 

‘Woman trafficked to be a sex slave by Bradford man’

6:00am Saturday 3rd August 2013 in News

A vulnerable woman was forced into a sham marriage and raped while kept as a slave above a shop, a jury heard.

The 20-year-old victim, from Slovakia, was sold to Azam Khan, 34, and held prisoner at his aunt and uncle’s shop in Burnley, Preston Crown Court heard yesterday.

The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was kidnapped in mid-August last year while on a night out with her friend.

She was allegedly plied with alcohol in the town of Zemplin, by Imrich Bodor, 44, of Clipstone Street, West Bowling, Bradford, who is accused of trafficking her for exploitation.

Her identification documents were taken away from her and she was made to travel on a coach for two days to England against her will.

She was told that she was going to the Czech Republic to work, but was instead taken to London, before heading to a house in Bradford.

The victim was said to have been kept there by Bodor and Petra Dzudzova, 25, also of Clipstone Street, who is also accused of trafficking.

The court was told after two weeks she was sold to Azam Khan, 34, who allegedly raped her three times and assaulted her twice while keeping her prisoner. He denies the charges.

Nusrat, 40, and Mashrafat Khan, 61, of Colne Road, Burnley, also deny charges of trafficking a person for exploitation under the Asylum and Immigration Act. They are accused of having signed wedding documents at the fake marriage ceremony.

It is also alleged the victim, who comes from a Romany gipsy community in eastern Slovakia, was forced into a sham marriage with Azam Khan at the mosque in Brougham Street.

The court was told that before the ceremony, on October 13 last year, she was given vodka and beer.

A statement from the imam at the mosque confirmed that the marriage took place and said that he had been asked to carry out the ceremony by Azam Khan.

Phillip Boyd, prosecuting, said she had no understanding of what was going on during the ceremony as she spoke no English and she was scared.

Mr Boyd said: “What links all these people together is a series of events which sounds more like something from a 19th century novel by Dickens than anything happening in Europe in the 21st century.

“The victim was handled round the continent and this country like a commodity. All the more cruel and inexcusable because being so unable to cope on her own, she was so ill-fitted to do anything about it.”

Abdul Sabool Shinwary, of Girlington Road, Bradford, who is also on trial for trafficking a person for exploitation, was said to have acted as a ‘link’ between Asians and Eastern Europeans to arrange sham marriages.

Kristina Makunova, 36, of the same address, has admitted charges of arranging a facilitating travel to the UK and false imprisonment.

The case continues.

Najaf Khan From Brierfield Guilty Of Entering House To Commit Sex Offences On Female And Exposing Himself To Police Officers

Najaf Khan from Brierfield guilty of entering house to commit sex attack on the young female who lived there. Given that Khan illegally entered somebodies home to try and satisfy his twisted and heinous sexual urges he is potentially a very serious danger to all women.Whilst in the cells he apparently exposed himself to the police more than once.  He has no fear of being caught or any boundaries coupled with his bizarre perverted behaviour increases the threat he is.

Man guilty of Brierfield sexual offences

8:00am Saturday 11th May 2013 in Burnley

A MAN has been convicted of a string of sexual offences, as well as trespassing into a young woman’s home and trying to kiss her on the lips. Najaf Khan, 31, was told by a judge that he had been found guilty on ‘completely overwhelming evidence’. He now faces sentencing next month. After a jury returned their unanimous verdicts at Preston Crown Court at the end of a three day trial, Judge Christopher Cornwall told them that around two weeks before the offences occurred, Khan had been cautioned for wasting police time. This had involved Khan making very strange allegations or indulging in bizarre, highly sexualised conversation with an operator on the phone. He dialled 999 on six occasions between June 2011 and last October. Khan, of Stanley Street, Brierfield had denied trespassing at a home in the town, with intent to commit a sexual offences, sexual assault and an attempted sexual assault, as well as four charges of exposure at Burnley police station. The trial heard how he struck up conversation with a young woman in her 20s walking down the street last November, before getting into her home and trying to kiss her. He was arrested the same night because his clothing was thought to be similar to that described by the woman.

While in a cell at the police station he allegedly exposed himself on four occasions, in a deliberate action. The defendant insisted to police he wasn’t the man who went into the woman’s home and that it must have been someone else as he was in Burnley at the time. He also said he never intentionally exposed himself. Khan did not give evidence himself to the jury. The case was adjourned to June 12 for sentencing. A pre-sentence report will be compiled, including a risk assessment and an update on his psychiatric condition.

Brierfield Muslim Paedo Sent Down For Grooming A 13 Year Old Schoolgirl

Yet another evil dirty Muslim paedophile jailed for grooming and having sex with a child. Sex fiend Mohammed Imran Amjad from Brierfield was described by the judge at Burnley Crown Court as a bullying sexual predator. It just a shame the judge didn’t take that into account when sentencing him to a lenient 4 years in prison. 

‘Predator’ Mohammed Imran Amjad jailed for grooming teen

Mohammed Imran Amjad
Mohammed Imran Amjad knew the girl’s age yet “continued to corrupt her”, prosecutor Chris Long said
A “predatory bully” who groomed a girl in Lancashire from the age of 13 before abducting and abusing her has been jailed for four years and three months.

Mohammed Imran Amjad, 26, of Halifax Road, Brierfield, admitted sexual activity with a child and three counts of child abduction in 2009 and 2010.

A jury heard he drove her around the streets in his silver BMW.

Prosecutor Chris Long said he knew the victim’s age yet continued to “corrupt and abuse her”.

Amjad initially denied the charges but changed his plea part way through the trial at Manchester Crown Court.

‘Coercing into submission’

He groomed the youngster after he was given her mobile phone number, said prosecutors, then took her out in his car before having sex with her aged 14.

The girl’s mother contacted the police but the girl refused to make a complaint at the time and the relationship continued, the court heard.

Amjad was acquitted on the direction of the judge of other charges of rape and aiding, abetting, counselling or procuring rape, encouraging or assisting an offence and witness intimidation.

Five other men were also acquitted of various sex offences against the same girl.

Haroon Mahmood, 22, of John Street, Brierfield; Mohammed Suleman Farooq, 23, of Berry Street, Brierfield; Omar Mazafer, 22, of Halifax Road, Brierfield; Mohammed Zeeshan Amjad, 25, of Halifax Road, Brierfield; and Shiraz Afzal, 26, of Mansfield Crescent, Brierfield, had also been on trial.

After Amjad was sentenced at Burnley Crown Court earlier, Mr Long said: “Mohammed Imran Amjad was a predatory bully who befriended the victim when she was just 12 or 13-years-old.

“He was well aware that the victim was underage yet he continued to corrupt and abuse her for his own gratification, wielding his power over her and coercing her into submission.”

Det Ch Insp Sion Hall said it was the culmination of a long and complex investigation, adding: “We’ve worked extremely hard with the young victim over a long period of time and she has shown a tremendous amount of courage and bravery throughout the case.

“I hope this sentence acts as a warning that this type of predatory crime will not be tolerated.”

Amjad was also given a seven-year sexual offences prevention order which bars him from contacting or seeking to contact any female aged under 16 without the permission of their parent or guardian.
