Oxford Islamic leaders yesterday said it was wrong to link child sex grooming cases to their religion as the abusers were not practising Muslims.Oh. Right. OK, then...
Imam Monawar Hussain, of the Oxford Foundation youth project …said: “Most of the guys who did this in Oxford were not going to the mosque. I have always felt it is not a race or religious issue.
“They are talking to the converted. Every single Muslim knows it is abhorrent.”Well, clearly not!
Riaz Ahmed, chairman of the Madina Mosque, said it was unneccessary (sic) to address the problem in mosques.
He added: “It is not a specific subject that you need to talk about in the mosques.
“If you are a person that goes to mosques you would be a million miles away from this type of activity. Like oil and water they do not go together.”As Fahrenheit211 notes, "Although the grooming beasts may not have been as practising as the Muslim leaders would like, they were all brought up in a Muslim culture that despises women and sees non-Muslim women as prey."
