A 48-year-old imam who teaches children about the Koran has been charged with sexually molesting an 11-year-old female student.
According to the charge sheet the incidents are alleged to have occurred in August and September 2009 in the girl's family home south of Stockholm. The 48-year-old was a regular visitor to the apartment and taught the girl and her 14-year-old elder brother about the Koran and the Arabic language.
When the girl finally revealed what she had been subjected to her parents immediately called the police.
"The mother was scared that more children could be exposed," district prosecutor Eva Kokkonen told news agency TT.
The sexual molestation involved the man groping the girl, including her breasts.
"It is always serious when a child is exposed to sexual acts. Especially when it takes place in her home and with a person she should be able to have confidence in. I consider that the man abused his authority and the punishment should be prison," Kokkonen said.
The prosecutor argues that the evidence against the imam is strong.
"The girl's story is reliable and her reaction when she told her parents is typical of abused children. She was very sad and so ashamed that she could barely talk about what had happened. Her big brother who arrived at the lesson later supported her story by testifying to the man's exaggerated indiscretion towards the girl," Kokkonen said.
"He presented himself to me as an imam, I think that makes the crime worse. I am shocked over what he has done," the girl's mother told news agency TT.
The trial will be held in Södertörn district court before the summer. The man denies all charges.
Was her name Aisha?
If the mullah would have just transferred him too another mosque, it would have been kept quiet for 40 years.
Isn’t that David BOwie’s wife? Imam?
NOW WAIT JUST A DERN MINUTE. Surely everyone knows that only Catholic priests molest kids. No one in the Religion of Peace would do that. Right? I mean, after Mohammed, of course. < /s>
- Probably, all prosecutors of Sweden are RACISTS!
I just can’t see why these sad incidents always seem to pop up where ever muslims settle down and practice Islam.
Multiculturalism and tolerance is the key to building the perfect society.
- Seriously speaking, young Muslims are taught to respond to allegations of Islam inspiring various sorts of crime by saying “Islam means peace, so therefore this can not be true”.
Many Muslims even refuse to admit Islam has anything to do with 9/11:
You’re obviously blinded by your racism and hatred for all mankind ... drink more coffee.
The Imam was doing as the false prophet Moe(jdams be upon him) did.
72 formerly-virgin goats are expected to testify at the trial, as well.
If they only allowed imams to marry....
NOW WAIT JUST A DERN MINUTe II
I thought it was illegal to arrest musloons
He probabaly had to go pretty young to find one of those prized “76 Virgins” in liberal Sweden.
