Cameroon : Imam gets 15 years for raping pupils

YAOUNDE - An Islamic cleric has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment in the west African state of Cameroon for raping 20 pupils in a Koranic school, court sources said.

Judges at the trial in Ngaoundere, a leading Muslim community in the country, also banned the defendant Modibo Mamadou Babba for life from exercising the duties of an imam.

The defendant was arrested at the beginning of this year following a collective complaint by the parents of the youngsters, aged between 16 and 21.

The affair caused a major scandal locally, where a section of the Muslim community was angry because the defendant was not sentenced to death.

Hmmm. 20 pupils. Doesn't he have another 52 to go?

I knew the victims had to be non-Christians, non-Jews, non-Buddhists as soon as I read the headline. Otherwise there would not have been any sentencing. Sick people.

"Youngsters"?

How about "innocent young male students"?
Imams don't consider women worthy of being taught, do they?

I'm pretty sure they don't teach Koran to the girls.

If it had been a Catholic priest we'd hear about it all over the MSM. Well, an American priest.

I also noticed how conveniently that part is omitted. My guess is that out of cultural sensitivity the writer didn't want to mention that they were boys.

Yes, of course, the victims will all be executed.

Eye would guess, most likely black pupils.

If the victims were female then they would have been executed....so that would lead me to believe it was male students....not to mention women are treated like dogs more than humans...so no school for Sally.

But...but...they cut off a hand for common thievery according to Sharia law.

Shouldn't the punishment for this offense be something similar?

Girl pupils? You must be kidding. They don't let girls in schools, especially with male teachers.

He must have been diddling boys. If they victims were girls, this would be a story about the stoning of 20 "little adultresses".

Why sentence him? After all, he was following in Mohammed's grandest tradition. I surprised that he is not considered an islamic hero.
