Australia: Imam Who Married 12yo Girl To 26yo Man Has Been Charged By Police

Police in Australia have arrested a Muslim imam who encouraged paedophilia by conducting an Islamic marriage ceremony of a 12 year old girl to a Muslim pervert twice her age. Quite rightly the paedo husband has also been charged with 25 child sex offences. Its a pity UK police don’t follow the example of those down under and arrest the imams involved in the countless under-age Islamic marriages reported each year to police here.

Imam Who Married 12yo Girl To 26yo Man Has Been Charged By Police

The 36-year-old religious leader was arrested at Parramatta and given bail until his court appearance on April 2.

He is accused of solemnising the marriage between the man and child at her father’s Hunter Valley home last month.

The “husband” is currently before the courts charged with 25 counts of having sex with a child and the girl is in foster care.

Investigations into involvement the child’s family had in the marriage are continuing.

Muslim Charged With Taking Girl From Bradford Care Home On Christmas Day

Muslim Abid Miskeen from Bradford has been charged by police for taking a vulnerable girl half his age from a council run children’s home where she was residing. The schoolgirl went missing on Christmas Day and was reportedly seen with Abid Miskeen during the 36 hours she was missing. At the time of his arrest Abid Miskeen was already on bail for child sex offences.

It appears Miskeen is no stranger to the court system who has been let of very lightly by Britain’s 2 tier justice. He has been banned from driving on 6 separate occasions and several convictions for drunk driving, no insurance and dangerous driving. In 2011 while a banned driver. He crashed into an Audi and fled the scene. When police caught him he refused to take a breath test. They then discovered he had  fraudulently obtained a driving licence under his alias Abid Ali Khan. Anybody else would of been sent down in court for those offences yet Miskeen avoided jail !

A 31-year-old man has appeared in court accused of abducting a 15-year-old girl from Bradford Council care on Christmas Day. Abid Miskeen, of Little Horton Lane, Bradford, is alleged to have been having “a romantic relationship” with the vulnerable teenager, who went missing for 36 hours before she was found by police. Miskeen appeared in custody at Bradford and Keighley MagistratesCourt yesterday charged with taking a child from the lawful control of Bradford Council Social Services Department on December 25. He pleaded not guilty to the allegation. Prosecutor Paul Ramsay alleged that Miskeen and the girl were in “a romantic relationship.” He said the defendant had been on bail after being charged in October with two offences of sexual activity with a child under 16. Magistrates heard that the police mounted an exhaustive missing person enquiry to trace the girl on Christmas Day when she failed to return to the local authority care home where she lives in Bradford. She had attended the home of a family member for Christmas dinner but disappeared afterwards. The court was told she was found 36 hours later hiding in the basement at a female friend’s house in the city. Mr Ramsay said one of Miskeen’s bail conditions was not to have any contact with the girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons. He alleged they had been seen together in Little Horton Lane after she went missing. Mr Yousaf applied for Miskeen to be rebailed but the magistrates refused the application.

2nd Rochdale Grooming Gang Jailed For 26 Years For Sexual Exploitation Of Schoolgirls

It has taken a while to happen but the second bunch of no good rape jihadists from Rochdale have finally been sentenced receiving a total of 26 years for sexually abusing vulnerable British schoolgirls. There should be no stone left unturned for  Islamononces to hide under in the hunt to bring them to justice. The police owe it to every victim who suffered at the hands of Muslim grooming gangs for so long whilst they was afraid to take action in case they was branded racist.

Video: Men Jailed For Sexually Grooming Girl

By Nick Martin, Sky News Correspondent

Five men who sexually exploited a 15-year-old girl in Rochdale have been jailed for a total of 26-and-a-half years.

The majority of the defendants were first arrested last year after a separate trial at Liverpool Crown Court revealed a largely Pakistani-heritage child sex ring abusing white girls in the town.

The victim, now aged 20, was described as having a “chaotic early life” who would drink to excess, take drugs, stay out late and sniff lighter fluid and self harm. She spent several years in care before returning to her mother’s house where her drink and drug taking continued.

Manchester Minshull Crown Court heard that many of her abusers plied her with vodka and cannabis before committing their offences in 2008 and 2009.

Congolese refugee Freddie Kendakumana, 27, of Illminster, Rochdale, was sentenced to eight-and-a-half years for rape and sexual activity with a child.

Mohammed Rafiq Abubaker, 32, of Freehold, Rochdale was jailed for two-and-a-half years for sexual activity with a child, whilst takeaway worker Roheez Khan, 27, of Ashfield Road, Rochdale, was sentenced to six-and-a-half years for sexual activity with a child and witness intimidation.

A fourth man, Chola Chansa, 33, of Illminster, Rochdale, was jailed for five years for sexual activity with a child.

Taxi driver Abdul Huk, 37, of Ouldfield Close, Rochdale, was sentenced to four years for sexual activity with a child.

Questions have been asked after it was revealed that Kendakumana had been arrested and interviewed before by Greater Manchester police (GMP).

The Streets Of Rochdale After Child Exploitation Arrests
The Rochdale victim in this case was not linked to men convicted last year

In December 2008 the girl complained to police that she had been raped the previous month.

The girl was told at the time by an interviewing male officer to stay away from Kendakumana while the investigation continued. But Sky News understands social care and health professionals dealing with the youngster failed to pass on her other reports in 2008 and 2009 that she was having consensual sexual contact with older men whom she labelled “boyfriends”.

Kendakumana was finally charged, along with his co-defendants, in October 2012 – nearly four years after the girl made the initial rape complaints as several men went on to abuse her in the intervening period.

From the end of 2008 to October 2011, the girl had undergone a total of 23 video-recorded police interviews.

The victim was first prompted to go to the police on the advice of a health support worker when she disclosed that Kendakumana was sexually forcing himself on her.

There was no suggestion that the victim had been “passed around” by the different men, although some were known to each other, the court heard.

In a victim impact statement, read out in court, she wrote: “I look back on the years I was drinking and hanging around with these men and see that this period has impacted on my education and what exams I failed to pass, this has followed into my adult life.

“I think a lot about that period of my life, I sometimes blame others like my mum, social services and the men, but I sometimes blame myself,” she said.

In May last year, nine men were jailed for the systematic grooming and sexual abuse of five girls – aged between 13 and 15 – in Heywood and Rochdale. Their trial at Liverpool Crown Court resulted in a national debate over the role of gangs of largely Pakistani-heritage men in grooming white girls.

A subsequent report from child safeguarding chiefs ruled that social workers, police and prosecutors had missed opportunities to stop the exploitation in Heywood and Rochdale.

Social workers in Rochdale were criticised for their approach to dealing with underage girls who were deemed to be “making their own choices” in engaging in consensual sex.

Although the girl in the latest court proceedings was being abused at about the same time, she had no known links with any of the defendants who were jailed at Liverpool Crown Court.

The convicted men in the Manchester trials came from a range of nationalities – Kendakumana and Chansa are from Congo, Abubaker is a Kurd, while Huk and Khan are believed to be of Pakistani heritage.

Several knew each other but it was not the prosecution case that they all acted as an organised gang.

The case has been voluntarily referred to the Independent Police Complaints Commission.

Sunderland Dad Mansour Savari Abused 13 Year Old Schoolgirl

Another sick beast locked up for grooming a girl  23 years younger than himself. Pervert Mansour Savari was married with children, had a good job and should of been making something of his life with his family. Instead he filled a 13 year olds head with rubbish about having babies and a future with her so he could get her in bed and satisfy his warped urges.

Married Sunderland dad abused 13-year-old schoolgirl

A MARRIED engineer sexually abused a trusting schoolgirl after convincing her they had a future together.

Mansour Savari told the 13-year-old he wanted them to get married and have twins during a series of secret text messages.

The 36-year-old dad took the teenager, from South Tyneside, to a pal’s empty flat and engaged in sexual activity with her.

He was arrested at his home after a worried friend of the victim contacted the police about what she knew.

At Newcastle Crown Court yesterday Savari, of Somerset Cottages, Silksworth, Sunderland, was jailed for three years and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register for life.

He had pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual activity with a child just before his trial before a jury was due to start last month.

Judge Roger Thorn QC told him: “You engaged in the most appalling and inappropriate sexual relationship with a young girl who you persuaded you were in love with and she was in love with you.

“Your victim was only just 13 years of age and by contrast you were 36.

“There had been here a significant period of grooming, promising, in effect a long-term relationship eventually which would be characterised by both marriage and children.

“That, of course, led ultimately to her seduction.”

The court heard Savari had denied the offences outright when he was arrested, meaning the victim faced the prospect of giving evidence in court until he changed his plea to guilty.

Judge Thorn added: “You did, eventually save that young victim of yours having to give evidence.”

Prosecutor Amanda Rippon read examples of the dozens of text messages exchanged between Savari and his victim.

She said: “They talk of having a baby together, the defendant and she have a conversation about what it would be called.

“The defendant says ‘I would love us to have twins’.”

Paul Currer, defending, said: “It is his sincere wish that this young girl and her family recover from the trauma and difficulties they have faced through his offending.”

2nd Rochdale Grooming Gang, 5 Found Guilty Of Sexualy Abusing White Schoolgirl In Hush-Hush Trial

Rochdale is back in the news once again for all the wrong reasons, paedophile gangs sexually abusing white schoolgirls considered as vulnerable. Shortly after the original Rochdale grooming gang were sentence. News broke that Greater Manchester Police had smashed a 2nd grooming gang from the heavily Islamized town. I followed the case until after their first date in court which was adjourned. Then all that followed was silence on the case. I made several attempts over the last 10 months to try and uncover what was going with these perverts you could find no mention of any of the accused.

Now i know why, just like the case last year was originally until patriots found out and exposed what was happening. There was a media blackout in place, doing so also kept the anti grooming protesters away during the trial. 

The good news is 5 paedophiles have been found guilty. 3 of those were Muslims like the grooming gang in the first trial. The other two nonces were African immigrants from Congo which only has a small amount of Muslim population. Muslims or not , its good to have the beasts out of circulation . Lets hope there will be deportation papers awaiting them when their sentence is up.

Five men sexually exploited ‘damaged’ 15-year-old girl in Rochdale

8 Nov 2013 14:14

The victim, now aged 20, gave evidence against the defendants in two trials.. The men are due to be sentenced on December 20.

 Four of the men: (L-R) Abdul Huk, Chola Chansa, Freddie Kendakumana, Mohammed Rafiq Abubaker
Four of the men: (L-R) Abdul Huk, Chola Chansa, Freddie Kendakumana, Mohammed Rafiq Abubaker

Five men sexually exploited the “profound vulnerability” of a “damaged” 15-year-old girl inRochdale, it can be reported today.

The victim, now aged 20, gave evidence against the defendants in two trials.

Many of her abusers plied the troubled teenager with vodka and cannabis before committing their offences, which took place in 2008 and 2009, Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court heard.

The majority of the defendants were first arrested last year after the grim portrayal of a largely Pakistani-heritage child sex ring preying on white girls in the town emerged into the public domain in a separate trial at Liverpool Crown Court.

But one of her abusers, Congolese refugee Freddie Kendakumana, was arrested and interviewed by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in December 2008 after the girl – also white – complained to police that he had raped her the month before.

The girl was told at the time by an interviewing male officer that it was important not to have any future dealings with Kendakumana while the investigation continued but she later confessed she had bumped into him at a flat. Soon after, she went on to have consensual sex with his friend when still aged 15, although that man knew she was under-age.

In a later interview, she explained: “I spoke to the police about it. The police said don’t go back there. If you go back up there, we don’t have a case, so I said I won’t.

“I went on to see Freddie in a flat. I didn’t really speak to him, I had a drink and then came home.”

Kendakamuna, 27, was finally charged, along with his co-defendants, in October 2012 – nearly four years after the girl made the initial rape complaints as several men went on to abuse her in the intervening period.

By that time the girl had undergone numerous video-recorded police interviews from the end of 2008 to October 2011, totalling more than 23 hours.

The victim was first prompted to go to the police on the advice of a health support worker when she disclosed that Kendakumana was sexually forcing himself on her.

But social care and health professionals dealing with the youngster failed to pass on her other confessions in 2008 and 2009 that she was having consensual sexual contact with a string of older men whom she labelled  “boyfriends”.

Reporting restrictions were lifted on both proceedings by Judge Jonathan Foster QC at today’s conclusion of the second trial.

Last month in the first trial, Kendakumana, of Illminster, Rochdale, was convicted of rape and sexual activity with a child. He was cleared of a second count of rape.

Two other men, Mohammed Rafiq Abubaker, 32, of Freehold, Rochdale, and takeaway worker Roheez Khan, 27, of Ashfield Road, Rochdale, were found guilty of sexual activity with a child. Khan was also convicted of witness intimidation.

A fourth man, Chola Chansa, 33, of Illminster, Rochdale, pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child just before the first trial started.

In the second trial, taxi driver Abdul Huk, 37, of Ouldfield Close, Rochdale, was found guilty yesterday of sexual activity with a child.

All five men will be sentenced on December 20.

Today the jury failed to reach a verdict on Mohammed Ali, 28, of Rochdale, on an allegation of sexual activity with a child.

The jury in the first trial also failed to reach a verdict on the same allegation against Mr Ali and, as a consequence, the Crown decided not to proceed with a third trial and has asked for the matter to lie on file.

Asrar Haider, 39, of Rochdale, was cleared by the second jury of sexual activity and inciting sexual activity with a child, while another defendant, Anjam Masood, 31, from Rochdale, was cleared of sexual activity and inciting sexual activity with a child on the direction of the judge after the prosecution said it was no longer offering evidence against him.

Charges were also dropped before the first trial against a 34-year-old man who had been accused of engaging in sexual activity with the girl in a car when she was as young as 12 or 13.

In May last year, nine men were jailed for the systematic grooming and sexual abuse of five white girls – aged between 13 and 15 – in Heywood and Rochdale.

The trial at Liverpool Crown Court resulted in a national debate over the role of gangs of largely Pakistani-heritage men in grooming white girls.

A subsequent report from child safeguarding chiefs ruled that social workers, police and prosecutors had missed opportunities to stop the exploitation in Heywood and Rochdale.

The first victim, who was 15 when the abuse began, told police what had been happening in August 2008, but her complaint was not taken seriously and she continued to be abused by the gang until December 2008 when she fell pregnant and moved away.

In July 2009, a CPS lawyer compounded the police failure to take her seriously and made the decision not to charge the two gang members she was accusing because he did not think a jury would find her “credible”.

Social workers in Rochdale were criticised for apparently writing off underage girls who were deemed to be “making their own choices” in engaging in consensual sex.

Although the girl in the latest court proceedings, who is also white, was being abused at about the same time, she had no known links with any of the defendants who were jailed at Liverpool Crown Court.

The convicted defendants in the Manchester trials also came from a range of nationalities – Kendakumana and Chansa are from Congo, Abubaker is a Kurd, while Huk and Khan are believed to be of Pakistani heritage.

Several knew each other but it was not the prosecution case that they all acted in an organised manner.

In March, Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood said GMP had identified 42 potential victims of child sexual exploitation in the Rochdale area and said they were working closely with six of them to bring more people to justice.

Opening the case against all the defendants, prosecutor Neil Usher said: “It is the Prosecution’s case that leading the chaotic life that she had for some time by the age of 15, she was vulnerable to being groomed and exploited by those who correctly perceived she would be easy to flatter and impress with free and plentiful drink, cannabis and just as importantly, a level of attention and affection that she craved and felt she had lacked in her difficult early life.

“She repeatedly and regularly returned to a number of older men all of whom sexually exploited her and some of whom physically abused her, despite her being advised and supported by health care and social workers.

“The risk-taking and potentially harming positions she regularly put herself in was an indication of the extent of her profound vulnerablily and emotional immaturity.”

In 2008 the girl was a troubled teenager who had been taken into care by Social Services at an early age following a chaotic upbringing by her drug addicted parents, he said.

She was later returned to her mother after a stint in foster care but began drinking alcohol, taking crack cocaine and sniffing lighter fluid from the ages of 11 and 12.

The girl had contact with a number of agencies including Pennine Care Foundation Trust’s Crisis Intervention Team which deals with sexual health and Early Break, an organisation which focuses on substance misuse problems.

The prosecutor said she would tell those agency support workers and her social workers from Rochdale Council about the lifestyle she was leading.

She would tell them that she regularly went to addresses with older men and engaged in sexual activity with them.

She claimed they would give her copious amounts of alcohol, sometimes drugs. and largely would have consensual sex with them.

The court heard that the girl realised herself just before her 16th birthday that her torrid lifestyle had to end and she later cut her ties with older men and enrolled at college.

Clerics At 18 Mosques Are Caught Agreeing To Marry Off Girls Of 14

Undercover reporters visited 56 mosques in the UK as part of a program they were making about illegal Muslim forced marriages of underage girls revealed 18 Muslim religious imams were willing to carry out the marriage despite being fully aware that it was against the law. The Islamic clerics are often seen by other Muslims as ‘community leaders’ who they may look to for guidance in situations where British Law clashes with the backwards and brutal sharia.  Yet instead of setting the right example and setting an example by following the laws of the land, they have disrespected the nation by indicating sharia takes preference. Even in such serious matters that break the law and encourage paedophilia.

To anybody who knows a bit about the inner workings of Islam, learning of this will come as no surprise. The perfect Muslim who they strive to be like, Mohammed (piss upon him) was himself a paedophile with his 6 year old child bride and most will not refuse due to their whatever paedo Mo did 1500 years is acceptable today mentality.

With negative attention on Islam and its brainwashed followers again don’t be surprised to see pro Muslim stuff appearing in the press to counter act it, likewise Muslim apologists appearing making excuses or Fiyaz Mughal claiming a rise in anti Islamic hate attacks to play the victim

Clerics at 18 mosques are caught agreeing to marry off girls of 14: Four imams investigated after undercover operation

Imams at 18 British mosques agreed to marry a 14-year-old girl

They were told by undercover reporters that the ‘bride’ did not consent

The legal age for marriage in the UK is 16 – the same for sexual consent – but under Islamic sharia law, girls can marry once they reach puberty

By MARIO LEDWITH PUBLISHED: 00:23, 7 October 2013 | UPDATED: 15:51, 7 October 2013

More than a dozen Muslim clerics have been caught agreeing to marry off girls as young as 14.

Four imams are now under investigation, after they offered to arrange the illegal ceremonies.

Undercover reporters, posing as the mother and brother of a 14-year-old, contacted 56 mosques  across the country and asked clerics to perform an Islamic marriage ceremony, known as a nika.

Imams at 18 mosques agreed – including one who has advised the police.

The preacher was prepared to arrange the nika despite being told that the ‘bride’ was being forced to move in with a man against her wishes.

Exposed: Khan Misbahi, preacher at Jamia Masjid Kanzul Imam Mosque near Leeds agreed to marry the pair

The revelations will raise questions about how prevalent underage marriage is in Britain.

Campaigners claim thousands of girls are forced into the illegal ceremonies every year, in a boom fuelled by the ‘moral blindness of cultural sensitivity’.

Such weddings are not recognised by UK law.

Marriages can only be officially registered if both parties are over 16, which is also the age of sexual consent.

One imam openly mocked English laws while speaking to reporters from ITV’s Exposure programme.

When told the girl did not want to get married, Mohammed Shahid Akhtar, of the Central Jamia Mosque Ghamkol Sharif in Birmingham, replied: ‘She’s 14. By sharia, grace of God, she’s legal to get married.

‘Obviously Islam has made it easy for us. There is nothing against that. We’re doing it because it’s OK through Islam.’

ITV\’s Exposure undercover reporter posing as the mother of the girl. She visited 56 mosques and 18 agreed

He then revealed his contempt for English laws on marriage, referring to sharia law which allows men to have up to four wives.

‘You’ve got the kaffirs [non-believers], the law, the English people that … you know, you can’t get married twice but, by the grace of god, we can get married four times,’ he said.

Akhtar’s Birmingham mosque – one of the UK’s largest with a capacity of 6,000 – has suspended him pending an investigation. It denies that any underage marriages have been carried out there.

Another cleric, Shams-ul-Huda Khan Misbahi, who preaches in Heckmondwike near Leeds, assured reporters that the marriage would be ‘real’.  Despite being told that the girl had only met her future husband once, the cleric condoned making her move in with the man against her wishes, claiming ‘everything is jaiz’, meaning lawful.

Misbahi, who has previously spoken out against forced marriage and advised West Yorkshire police on community outreach, admitted that he would not be able to attain a UK wedding certificate, but added:  ‘We’ll make everything OK by Islam. We’ll write their names down and put it in our records.’

The Jamia Masjid Kanzul Iman mosque said it had launched a ‘thorough investigation’ into his comments.

Angry: Assistant Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Britain, Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra, here with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, blasted the schemes. He said: \’In this country, it is illegal, it is forbidden and no imam should be allowed to conduct the marriage of an underage child\’

‘This organisation does not condone forced or underage marriages,’ it said in a statement.

Two other imams, at mosques in Manchester and Birmingham, are also under investigation after they were caught on camera agreeing to hold the ceremonies.

The Muslim Council of Britain’s Ibrahim Mogra said: ‘UK law does not allow the marriage of underage girls and that’s all that matters to us here. In this country, it is illegal, it is forbidden and no imam should be allowed to conduct the marriage of an underage child.’

The charity Karma Nirvana, which supports forced marriage victims, says it has helped with girls as young as eight. It receives more than 600 calls every month.

Founder Jasvinder Sanghera  told the Sunday Times that the issue had become ‘wrapped up in this moral blindness of cultural sensitivity’.

Since 2008, courts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland have been able to issue civil orders to prevent forced marriage. Breaches can result in a two-year prison sentence for contempt of court.
