A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he  was taught that women are worthless.

Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’

Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence.

But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.

Rashid, from Birmingham, admitted he had sex with the girl, saying he had been ‘tempted by her’ after they met online.

They initially exchanged messages on Facebook before sending texts and chatting on the phone over a two-month period.

They then met up in Nottingham, where Rashid had booked a room at a Premier Inn.

The girl told police they stayed at the hotel for two hours and had sex after Rashid went to the bathroom and emerged wearing a condom.

Rashid then returned home and went straight to a mosque to pray. He was arrested the following week after the girl confessed what had happened to a school friend, who informed one of her teachers.

He told police he knew the girl was 13 but said he was initially reluctant to have sex before relenting after being seduced.

Earlier the court heard how Rashid had ‘little experience of women’ due to his education at an Islamic school in the UK, which cannot be named for legal reasons.

After his arrest, he told a psychologist that he did not know having sex with a 13-year-old was against the law. The court heard he found it was illegal only when he was informed by a family member.

In other interviews with psychologists, Rashid claimed he had been taught in his school that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’.

When Judge Stokes said Rashid ‘must have known it was illegal, unless he was going round with his eyes shut’, defence lawyer Laban Leake said reports suggested Rashid had a ‘degree of sexual naivety’.

‘The school he attended, it is not going too far to say, can be described as a closed community and on this occasion this was perpetuated by his home life.

‘It is not too far to say that he may not have known that having sex with a 13-year-old girl was illegal.’ Judge Stokes sentenced Rashid to nine months youth custody, suspended for two years, along with a two-year probation supervision order.

Describing Rashid, the judge said: ‘He’s had an unusual education, certainly in terms of the sexual education provided. Comparing women to lollipops is a very curious way of teaching young men about sex.’

But he said that Rashid knew what he was doing was wrong.

‘It was made clear to you at the school you attended that having sexual relations with a woman before marriage was contrary to the precepts of Islam,’ he said.

Addressing Rashid, the judge said: ‘I accept this was a case where the girl was quite willing to have sexual activity with you. But the law is there to protect young girls, even though they are perfectly happy to engage in sexual activity.’

  1. Islam will never allow fornication. He committed a sin and its made public because he's Muslim. Islam protects women. Islam elevates women. If you know Arab history and Islam well you will understand what I mean. Never have I seen or heard that in Islam ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’. Fornication is a MAJOR sin in Islam. And prophet Muhammad(saw) stressed that people should respect women, especially our mothers.

  2. This story is misleading and malicious. The girl according to the judge was willing… Does that sound like a rape? Moreover putting emphasis on the fact that he is a muslim is wrong. Islam is against all these immoral and despicable acts even when committed willingly and where it is a rape the punishment is very severe.

  3. raping is absolutely a huge crime in Islam punishable by death, I think the judge was ignorant of Islamic laws or, was deliberately trying to castigate Islam in any case it is a crime to rape in Islam

  4. This case has nothing to do with Islamic school he attended,is just the boy committed an offence which is punishable by law,but the assertion made that the teachings of Islam are unusual education is not correct. Islam states everything clearly that the youngest man can ever understand than any other teaching. So do not associate what is wrong to its teachings,because Islamic teaching are the complete way of life.

  5. what school is that? He comitted adultry, which is punishable in Islam. In Islam it clearly states what marriage is and what sexual relationship with a wife. The reason they are not mentioning the schools name becoz the story is fake. IF Muslims find out there is a school teaching this they will burn it down. This is another way, cheap way, a played out way to hurt Islam. Even non Muslims can pick up a copy of Quran and read what Muslims say and do when it comes to sex. I bet this guy is not even a muslim. And what law takes this as an exuse. This whole story is made by a 14 year old who just discovered he hates Islam.

  6. the judge said ''i agree that the girl was quite willing to have sex with you'' meaning it was consentual not rape so please change the heading.

    However i thought ignorance was (is) not an excuse in the court of law

  7. Sex with a minor is rape under the law. Whether the minor was willing or not. Under the law, minors cannot give consent. Thank you.

  8. Innalillahi wa inna Ilaihi raji'un. This is un Islamic,and thats why we(muslims) agains teaching our youngs sex education,because practice must be done this is for the sex edu. Legally this young chap committed a sinful act thats having sex with out marriage even if the two party agreed upon (ie thier case)in Islam the punishment of such act is 100 lashes to each publically. How ever,I wonder what type of school he attended and who are the teachars?are they muslims?do they master the Holy Quran and sunnah of our Rasuul?I doubt either becouse a good muslim will never command such act nor will he comfired woman value with lollypoop.its Islam that give them full freedom from burrying them alive into living,to be respected been mothers,to cover their body to protect them selves for been attacked or RAPED.anyway thats the problem that we muslim are encountring non Muslims are always Missunderstanding the concept of Islam,gradually the truth shall set us free. Read more about islam you can judge anything your self. MAY ALLAH PROTECT US AND GUIDE US AMEEN

  9. People commit rape but why must the article link his faith and his ignorance about it.

    I don't think there is any religion or way of life that cherish,protect women like ISLAM as evidence by the life of the prophet(S.A.W)

    And there is appropriate punishment for adulterers and fornication.

  10. EITHER SEXING OR RAPING IT IS FORBIDDEN .HARAM' IN ISLAMIC LAW. THE JUGDE IS THAT BOTH MUST BE PUNISHED FOR THEIR ACTION AND DEED. OTHERWISE IT IS SINFUL TO ALMIGHTY ALLAH.

  11. This is what happens when Mohammadans are allowed into Western cultures. Mohammad was himself a paedophile and the spawn of satan. KEEP THESE VERMIN OUT OF THE WEST OR, IF YOU MUST, ANNIHILATE THEM.

  12. What about the girl? No justice for her violation? Was she really “happy” to have sex with him — and doesn’t the fact that she’s a child make the choice null and void? And what will this decision say to muslim men in this rapist’s age group? And why isn’t the judge insisting that the muslim school teach that women are valuable or CLOSE THEIR DOORS?

  13. Disgusting. Premeditated sexual act (booking hotel in advance) and classic ‘blame the victim’ mentality. How on earth do you expect to stamp out this rising trend of Muslim rape and paedophilia BY NOT MAKING AN EXAMPLE OF THIS INDIVIDUAL. How can this judge sleep at night!

  14. There are things that are INHERENTLY WRONG. Rape, murder. (Malum in se) these are things that are against the laws of nature. It has NOTHING to do with religion. Lawyers need to stop defending these scum and help put them away instead of back on the street to do it again. People know it is wrong. Ignorance of a law (malum prohibitum). You need to read and keep up with current laws.

  15. THIS EVIL CULT WANTS STOPPING AND TO ALLOW SCHOOLS IN OUR COUNTRY TO TEACH THIS SHI WHICH ISNT A RELIGION BUT AN EVIL CULT MAKES ME THINK OUR LEADERS AGREE WITH THIS AND WANT GETTING OUT THE OFFICE THE SOONER THE BETTER COME BACK TONY BENN

  16. Of course this young korandrathal would blame the girl for luring and enticing him. How often have we heard that “ignorance of the law is no excuse”. Not only should he go to jail, so should the Judge that heard his case. Reading items like this just indicates how much the British values and the Rule of Law ave been subverted.

  17. I don”t believe a fucking single word of that & if people are taken in by this rape of a 13 year old girl then your fucking brainless.Of course he knew what he was doing was wrong!He got well briefed by his imams & solicitor & pleaded ignorance!!!!!!!What the fuck is wrong with this country?

  18. This is why I left Islam and became Rastafarian.. I&I just want peace and love for this I & I stay away from Babylon….
    And these terrorists don’t care about anybody… They rape and kill children?!? FAYAH ON DEM

  19. But these people don’t care they will send u to jail for having a plant …… do nothing against people who do disgusting crimes like this…. Fayah on babylon

  20. There are a bunch of idiotic legal minds who are so caring for the underdog! Best they catch wake up they have a big shock coming their way. It’s about time Europe woke up before it’s too late to turn the tide that is engulfing it. Europe is paying idiots to come and destroy their country. Wake up guys before we all find ourselves being controlled by a new regime which is moving West and quickly

  21. Absolutely disgusting! If you’re a British citizen regardless of your race or culture you should have the same education! How is the teaching of women being worthless promoting equality and diversity? And quite frankly it’s discrimination that he’s got away with it because of some bullshit ridiculous excuse! Having sex with a minor is illegal in this country, there should be no tolerance for it regardless of any individual difference or idiotic defence given in court!

  22. The worst thing is the number of cases of grooming of young girls in the uk over the past year that have come to the attention of the media and yet they let the bastards away with it when it gets to court just because the justice system are afraid that if they don’t accept his plead of ignorance they’ll be deemed as discrimating and racism because he’s been taught no better in an Islamic faith school! Makes you wonder what else they’re being taught in school. How on earth is this country supposed to embrace diversity and put a stop to racism when ethnic and religious groups isolate themselves from the rest of society by running Islamic schools that are clearly teaching unethical and wrong things to the younger generation!

  23. Okay so i’m an Athiest and i do not follow any religion. Can i go around and rape, murder and steal because i’m a free spirit? Laws the law regardless of religious beliefs & skin colour, do the crime you do the time… This country is fucked

  24. The girl is still classed as a child-he had every intention of having sex with her as he booked a room at a hotel so his intentions were obvious -I think he would be aware of the differences in culture -‘ignorance of the law is no excuse’ there is -no justice for the girl for whom he took advantage of -the judge is an ass -and should be sacked -once again they are always the -victims all this has proved is what they are being taught in their ideology -no respect or consideration of women.

  25. So somebody can meet somebody in a bar, have sex.with them not realising they’re under age and face prosecution/prison…but Muslims can knowingly groom them, claim ignorance and walk away?
    Not only is this a massive injustice, but it is also advertising rape as acceptable to paedophiles in the Muslim community … Both the accused and the judge should be serving time right now.

  26. Someone explain to me just how a judge can pass anything other than a custodial sentence for the rape of a 13 year old?

    It doesn’t matter if she agreed to have sex, she is three years younger than the age of consent.

    This is indicative of the mess this country is in, there are no words to describe the madness as the rot sets in.

  27. so does that mean we can go to their country and not follow their laws??? I think not!!! Come on rest of the world wake up and stop being scared of them and bowing to their every word!!!!!

  28. Fucking disgusting judge stokes needs shooting. Islam or what ever religion is no excuse to Rape. Dirty scumbags. Islam is now becoming a Joke i feel sorry for all the innocent Muslims having to go through all the hate that alot of the world is having against them at this time.

  29. Wow this article just makes me sick. I am a Muslim and this is absolute bs, no Muslim would ever tell you a girl is worthless islam doesn’t teach that at all. In fact women are treated with great respect in Islam. This guy is just a disgrace, you don’t have to follow any religion to know that raping a girl is wrong. People like these are the reason why Muslims all around the world suffer from hatred against them. Absolutely disgusting!

  30. So are we all going to now be allowed the same amount of lattitude, empty the jails as they may be all innocent, does the Law not say ignorance is no defence so what the hell happened here.

  31. I’m waiting for a punchline. This is just a joke. Surely a large sum of money had to have changed hands. It’s a court of LAW, not a court of excuses…

  32. England, the sick people of Europe. Your country is weak, if it happened in the US, he would have been on a metal cot by sundown.

  33. No difference between the muslim ideology and philosophy to kill all the non muslim than that of Nazis philosophy and ideology of the Holocaust…. and alot of muslims are also anti-semitic, but i am not anti muslim nor i want to kill muslims… I just want that there is peace in the world and that everybody is living with love for each other…. and to stop wars for religion which is meant to unite people…..

  34. The prophecy of the “Four kingdoms of Daniel” in Chapter 7 of the Book of Daniel has also been interpreted by Christians as a prediction of Muhammad. Eulogius argued that Muhammad was the Fourth Beast in the prophesy. Another medieval monk, Alvarus, argued that Muhammad was the “eleventh king” that emerged from the Fourth Beast. According to historian John Tolan,

    In Daniel’s description of this beast, Alvarus sees the career of the Antichrist Muhammad and his disciples. This eleventh king who arises after the others, “diverse from the first,” who subdues three kings, is it not Muhammad, who vanquished the Greeks, the Romans, and the Goths? “And he shall speak great words against the most High”: did he not deny the divinity of Christ, thus, according to Saint John, showing himself to be an Antichrist? He “shall wear out the saints of the most High”: is this not a prediction of the persecutions inflicted by the Muslims, in particular of the martyrdoms of Córdoba? He will “think to change times and laws”: did he not introduce the Muslim calendar and the Koran? “ The internet is full of proofs…

  35. That’s wrong religion is no acception for any crime, if you commited it you pay simple. Disgusting dog I hope someone has there way with him and gets away with it.

  36. He’s stil broken the law if anyone raped a girl underage they would still get jailed his religon doesnt change that hes broken the law hes in britain hes broke one of the laws he should be punished

  37. And this is what’s wrong with Britain! If he was british it would of been a different matter and would of been sent to prison… absolutely disgusting!

  38. And this is why there will soon be a civil war on the streets of Britain… If I said my religion stated I shouldn’t pay my bills would the government and courts write them off too? Of course not.. I’m a white male who should know every single law. And too live in this country you should know the law and abide by it too. No exception!

  39. If I had my way I cut the little cunts dick off england is a joke and so are the foreigners that come here you cry about your own country n then move to ours but can’t abide buy our laws weak pathetic pple and as for the judge he should be put in the same position with his daughter see if his excuse would still be oh his religion don’t teach him respect for religion you all want the horrible stuff done back to you all n fucked off back to your own country n do what you wana do over there not in in England n every one like the judge wants sending with them all because this sort of stuff will bring a civil war n me for one cannot fucking wait england has grown weak n needs new leaders n needs all weakness flushing out of it n be back how it used to

  40. You’re all saying things about him, what about her? She never said no did she?its only classed as rape because of her age she agreed to it she knew exactly what she was doing. If he forced himself on her then yeah maybe, she agreed to it.

  41. he knew to take her to a premier inn, he knew to wear a condom, he had being chatting for months on facebook, then surely he would have known what he was doing was wrong, throw him out of the country and send him back to the country where his school teaching are accepted, he is a guest in the uk, and should live by our laws, they made the decision to come here so their fore accepted they should live by our laws,

  42. Their religion is not the problem because Muslim are the most peaceful people in the world. Yh mon!TERORSM, ISIS AND OTHERS ARE THE MOST PEACEFUL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.
    LOL!!!

  43. And yet they still allow the Islamic educational system to run rampant while clearly acknowledging that it fosters either mental illness or sociopathic behavior.

  44. lock him up and the girl’s parents too.
    wtf is a 13 year old going around to a hotel with a stranger? what did her parents tech her?

  45. Like most religions, I’m sure it left some stuff out, The Bible doesn’t even say rape is wrong, but don’t eat shrimp or wear cloths with 2 different fibers.

  46. He goes in England and is supposed to have read and understood the law in this country. He did a crime, and should be punished for it. Lolipop or nor. The end

  47. wonder what would happen to me if I was in his country and I raped a 13 year old muslim girl I guarantee I woulg lose my head….

  48. Always using there religion to get out of things!! Whether his religion teaches them this or not they should learn and abide by our laws if they live in our country!! Fucking curry munching prick!

  49. According to the quran it is not illegal to have sex with a girl of 13 or even younger. Their prophet married a girl of 9years old. If sharia law is enforced then sex with underage girls or boys will be made legal.

  50. How many more times is the British Justice system going to fail!? Rape is a crime in Britain therefore the criminal should be punished no matter what his religion or beliefs!

  51. I don’t even think this story is true. It sounds ridiculous. Media playing stupid games and stupid people will believe this and make racist comments.

  52. How long as he lived in this forgiving country. The Law states that its illegal to have sex with a girl under the age of 16. If he didn’t know that where has he been for the last several years. Its a get out clause that’s what it is, nothing more nothing less. If that had been an English boy he would have said goodbye for some time. And women are worthless, so if that’s what they practice then why did he have sex with the young girl . Hes guilty regardless of his faith. This is England and our laws should be for all not just a few. The Judge is a total Buffoon

  53. This is not right an excuse to avoid consequences… Any other foreigner would have gone to jail for such act… Why we are not judged same way all? If he live and learn here he know the rules it’s obviously lie but even if he doesn’t know it doesn’t mean he can break a law without consequences …others gonna see and they will keep doing that.

  54. sorry but are you joking me ahh this country annoys me . cant wait for the day this government get there heads out there asses and wake up and smell the coffee basically his religion never taught it so he doesn’t get done . i don’t have a religion therefore i haven’t been taught it then so i guess its ok ? not sure but i don’t think it says in any religious book one must not have sex with underage girls however it is the against the law and everyones clearly knows that the law. any muslim does anything now all they do is play the religion card and get away with it because the court don’t want to be seen a racist, plus this is no way on earth on he wouldn’t know that it was illegal hes has most likely liked here since birth he would clearly have a TV . Rape cases are always on the news and there always articles or newspapers or things like this on facebook.he knew exactly what he was doing hence the fact he booked a hotel room not as if he booked it too have a coffee in is it ? this case is a joke should of been a no brainer straight to jail.

  55. Sick wether taught it or not he broke british law and if they cant adhere to british law then send them home to a muslim country we are english and sharia law and extreme muslims are not welcome when is our government going to start looking after us british ppl first set of fuckwits

  56. Not being funny but if we went to a Muslim country and broke sharia law they would not take into account we were unaware of the jllegality of our actions, he has been living in this country where rape of underage girls is in the papers and on the tv a lot so I’m sorry he is taking the piss out of us because he knows if after he stated he was a Muslim the courts would bend over backwards to help him

  57. “I didn’t know it was illegal to rape a child because my big imaginary friends distracted me”

    Fuck off. Prison, now.

  58. What crap is this…… Islam never teaches rape and woman has a very high status in islam….
    Its a major sin to have illlegal sex(zina) in islam….dont believe this terrorist they exploit women they are not muslims they are just terrorist and terrorist have no religion….understand islam first and they speak ill things…..islam is a religion of peace and logic!….this is all bullshit just to brimg down the name of the fastest growing religion :)

  59. Please read this if you believes that islam exploits women:
    In Islam there is absolutely no difference between men and women as far as their relationship to Allah is concerned, as both are promised the same reward for good conduct and the same punishment for evil conduct. The Quran says:

    “And for women are rights over men similar to those of men over women.” [Noble Quran 2:228]

  60. Here’s the Koran on rape of non-Muslim women:

    Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess. Thus has Allah ordained for you. All others are lawful, provided you seek them from your property, desiring chastity, not fornication. So with those among them whom you have enjoyed, give them their required due, but if you agree mutually after the requirement (has been determined), there is no sin on you. Surely, Allah is Ever All-Knowing, All-Wise.

    Qur’an 4:24

    So, we can assume by the rapists defence that he was taught this at his Islamic school. What I, and other infidels struggle to understand is why you, a self styled moderate Muslim, are not hounding the school about this as it clearly has been teaching attitudes to women which are not compatible with being a law abiding and valued member of society.

    Is there any wonder why you say there is an increase in so called islamaphobia? This type of incident and your faliure to condem it is exactly why people are losing patience with Islam and asking questions you don’t want to answer. Rather than run bleating about Islamophobia why don’t you try and ensure your house is in order?

  61. If what’s right and what’s wrong is determined by our society only and not by the Bible, then what is the use and the point of having the Bible then?
    Is this a fair question?
    Where do you draw the boundaries for sinning in the Pornographic Bible, to help the Righteous be guided and given the proper directions to remain straight and not be led astray in the Christian Whoredom?
    Please visit Why do some Muslims call Americans and Westerners “Great Satan”?
    If it’s ok in Christianity to have sex before marriage, ok to live with someone without marriage (like boyfriend or girlfriend), ok to have anal sex with the same gender ok for the brother to sleep with his sister, ok for people to expose most of their bodies (by wearing bikinis for instance), ok to spread wickedness among society, then:
    WHAT’S NOT OK TO DO THEN????!!!! AND WHY DID GOD DROWN TO DEATH THE PEOPLE OF LOTT AND NOAH THEN? DIDN’T THEY DO THE SAME EXACT THING AS THE CHRISTIANS ARE DOING TODAY FROM SODOMY, AND ILLEGAL SEX WITHOUT MARRIAGE??

  62. Don’t live in England and with no idea of the laws. As if he didn’t know.. what a tool. If he thought women were worthless why was he talking to one in the first place?!
    I’m not racist one bit, but if that had been an English man they would throw the book at him!
    RAPE is rape whether he’s from a Muslim background or an abused background, if that happened to his daughter he’d want the guy hung by his nether regions.

  63. All the religions in the world have absolutly nothing to do with what this boy has done,morals and common sence is all that’s needed to know what is wrong and what is right, quoting the Quran and bible the both I find have beautiful and disgraceful passages, have been written and twisted into what a paticular religion want, I’m not associated with any particular religion but I belive that if there is a god, a good and loving god, all he/she would want is for everyone to live to their best, be kind, companionate , careing look out for each other.. That is the only ideal I would want to live by…

  64. Ignorantia juris non excusat – ignorance of the law does not excuse

    Thought this was what the law usually say in response to people sayiing they didn’t know what they did was breaking the law?

    I guess that doesn’t apply now?

    Sad times.

  65. I forgot to add to my last post… Rape is Rape no matter what religion you belong to, playing ignorant is pathetic and the judge that was on the case and made this abhorrent decision needs a new career

  66. I’m seriously hating this country! Haven’t got a problem who comes into the country but they need to abide by our laws! And if they break the laws, they should be sent straight bk! I’m sure that judge would think differently if it was his 13 yr old daughter! Disgusting!

  67. So if her father kills this piece of garbage because he has been insulted by what he has done to his daughter, then he will get off with a warning. After all it is legal to kill Muslims most everywhere else on the planet.

  68. People here are being racist can I just say that women are treated equally in fact better than men, women completes half the males faith when married, the women has the right over the males wages, when the female is a mother heaven Is under her foot. This is just a few examples I have gave their are many more about women.
    I agree that what that guy did was wrong he seriously deserves to be jailed for what he did.

  69. Ignorantia juris non excusat – it seems to me that the law of the state applies in Muslim countries regardless of an accused persons religion. The Judge is WRONG on this one.

  70. Why is it when a muslim does somethng wrong you have to state that it is a muslim, but if he is from any othere religion it would have sai something like guy with mental illness or somethin like dat. But when it is a muslim they ha e to state he is a musli and he did this act because of his religion…before you thick S.O.B’s say anything make sure you got your facts right….

  71. And by the way you all fear the religion dats all it is…every1 is scared of muslims n fear them dats all it really is…and yes you shud fear us….u cowards…

  72. im muslim and ill say this clearly, his school is fucked up o.O
    why do u think most muslim reverts/converts are women? because they notice that Islam respects women as equal to men and in many cases women have higher priorities…but wtf his school makin women out to be lollypops or some crap like that…woow thats weird as fuck. he should have got sentence tbh, wether religous views or not,there was no excuses he fucked an underaged girl. but i “like” how the media and the many people in the comments just point their fingers at the “muslim” side to all this when, the media dosent express that in Islam its forbidden to have sex with anyone unless she/he is your wife/husband. Sad to see an indivisual make a Islam look bad…

  73. Adil Rashid hasn’t been locked in a shed in the bush all his life. The bloke used facebook to groom the girl and arrange the meeting (over months?) so I’m betting he’s been using the internet for other stuff as well. He’s a long way from uninformed if he uses social media. And if he though it was ok why sneak off to a hotel? Why not knock on her door and ask her parents to hand her over. Because of this bit of his education:…’ It was made clear to you at the school you attended that having sexual
    relations with a woman before marriage was contrary to the precepts of
    Islam,’
    He knew what he was doing was wrong and did it anyway.

  74. If that was my daughter, he’d be having ‘sex’ with his 72 Virgins, and chatting with Mohammed now……………..injustice if ever I saw it!!

  75. It is clearly injustice to let ignorance dictate his punishment…wrong message given that young girls are not to be respected and that this discusting islam man has more respect…shame on the justice system for clearly setting the stage for more rapes

  76. Well then… I’d jail him… And then immediately shut the school down and outlaw such hateful teachings being spouted in my country under-penalty of immediate deportation.

  77. the problem is how do we draw a line.. maybe the guy did’nt have the ethical code that dictated that this was wrong however should not the girl who would have suffered psychological abuse whether she knows it or not be given closure

  78. Religion shouldn’t mean one thing applies to you and not the other he in the uk slept with a 13 year old he should be on sex offenders and in jail simple as

  79. Christians have often presented their religion as a religion of love and peace while presented Islam as a religion of war and sword. In the modern media Muslims and Islam have often been covered in a way which reinforces this old perception. For Muslims who have time to think about such things the Christian and Western perceptions appear as a complete disregard of the most obvious facts. In what follows I discuss this issue from the point of view of the teachings of the two religions as well as the conduct of their adherents through history.
    Christian conduct
    For centuries now Christian nations have been busy beating up one Muslim nation or another. In the Middle Ages they came as crusaders. Then they colonized many Muslim countries and tried to destroy their cultures and religion. During their struggle for independence some Muslims had to suffer terrible violence. The French killed about a million Muslims in Algeria because they wanted independence. In a way this French war against Islam and Muslims is still continuing through the support of the military dictatorship in Algeria against the Muslim party that was set to win elections and persecutions in France of Muslim men with beards and Muslim women with hijab. The USA and Britain killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqis (with the approval of about 90% of their people) without letting the world see the blood, thus practicing a lesson learned during the Vietnam war. Serbs have killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims and raped thousands of women in Bosnia and Kosovo. Although in these lands, a combination of rare circumstances put the West (USA and Western Europe) on the side of the Muslims, this did no good to them because the Western powers did not want to loose any of their own soldiers. Had the West left the Muslim Bosnians and ethnic Albanians to their fate without putting an arms embargo on them, their suffering would not have been any greater.
    Israel has been for half a century destroying the Palestinian people with the help of arms and financial and moral support provided by the USA, the very sort of crimes that have been committed by the Serbs against the people of Kosovo and which have been condemned by the West, even though there were no cameras to record the cries of the Palestinians and photograph the pictures of the massacred people and burning homes. In Lebanon when Christians were in the majority there was war, but now that the Muslims are in the majority there is peace except in the south of the country where Christians have been helping a foreign enemy against their own countrymen. When an American president needs to divert his people’s attention away from his sex scandal the easiest thing he finds is to bomb Muslim countries — Afghanistan, Sudan and Iraq — because he knows that this will be approved by a vast majority of his people. And then there is the media which is ever busy in maligning the Muslims while they do not at this point in time possess the resources to speak up: for every word spoken/written by a Muslim and heard/read by one person, a thousand words from a Christian are received by a thousand persons in the world. At the international level the voices of the Muslims are all but drowned by the Christian voices and those Christian voices are for the most part condemnatory. If a cartoonist was to depict the situation between the Western and Muslim civilizations, he or she will draw a weaker person not able or inclined to stand up or to speak while another stronger person is standing over him with a big stick, now and then beating him, and all the while shouting to him in a loud voice: you are a violent man.
    It is important for both Muslims and Christians to ask: What will the Christian be if the tables were turned and their lands were first colonized by Muslims and then bombed or maligned or ethnically cleansed? If the past is any guide, the answer is clear: There will be a vicious reaction and given the chance an attempt at almost total destruction of the Muslims. For in Spain Muslims lived for about 850 years as rulers. They lived with Jews and Christians for the most part in a spirit of tolerance and cooperation in promoting science and culture to the point that their work prepared for the modern scientific revolution with all its benefits for mankind. But the moment Muslims became weaker, the hate in the Catholic heart came out with a vengeance. Muslims were either killed, converted, or forced to leave Spain and their heritage was as fully destroyed as was humanly possible. Before Palestine and Kosovo, there was Spain.
    Above, I have mentioned only what the Christian nations have been doing or are doing to the Muslims. But when we look at what they have done to each other or to other people any validity in their claim of being people of love and peace vanishes, at least as far as Western Protestant or Catholic Christians are concerned. The horrible treatment of the heretics and witches in the Middle Ages probably inspired the tyrants of later centuries. The native peoples of the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand bear a tragic witness to what Christian nations can do to other nations and with the blessings and assistance of Christian churches. In this century alone the Western nations have fought two world wars with tens of millions dead and untold misery for the living. For each victory in these two wars the church bells rang in the victorious countries. The first nation to make a weapon of mass destruction and the only one to use it is a Christian nation.
    Had not the toll of death mounted too high for the Americans there can be little doubt that the fate of North Vietnam would have been like that of Iraq: it would have been bombed to submission no matter how many Vietnamese lives would have been lost. The lesson learned in North Vietnam was not that there should be no more war but that never again the American casualties would be allowed to mount so high and never again the cameras would be allowed to get so near the horrors of war that a backlash against the war would be created in the public. Often Christian countries have some hand even in the violent conflicts in non-Christian countries in Africa and Asia. The colonial policy of divide and rule sowed seeds of conflicts that later resulted in violence between the groups that the colonial powers turned against one another. Palestinian-Jewish conflict and the Kashmir issue are among the legacy of colonialism. After the colonial period interference by the Western countries continued in the internal affairs of African and Asian countries. More recently, Iran-Iraq war was encouraged by the West so that the Islamic revolution in Iran may not spread to the Arabian peninsula. The military government in Algeria which cancelled the elections that Muslims were poised to win has the support of France and this support is partly responsible for the violence there, which, it seems, is mostly done by the military.
    In Rwanda the tribe that perpetuated a holocaust of another tribe follows the Catholic religion. The most cruel tyrant in history came from a Christian country and there has been no shortage of other somewhat less ruthless dictators in Christian countries, especially in South America and Africa.
    Even in terrorism, associated in the media mostly with the Muslims, it is the Christians that hold the record when it comes to the number of children and other innocent people killed. The Oklahoma bombing, carried out by people professing to be Christians, claimed more completely innocent victims than any other single act of terrorism. Terrorism in Northern Ireland which is a direct result of a sectarian conflict between Catholics and Protestants and is often supported by the religious leaders, has probably killed more children and innocent people than Middle East terrorism. Moreover, Muslim terrorism is mostly linked to the sort of unjust treatment suffered by the Palestinians whereas the Oklahoma bombing and, to a lesser degree, Irish terrorism is difficult to link in such a way.
    Now and then there appear religious sects whose beliefs lead them to violence. David Koreish armed his followers to teeth and led them to their violent death. There seem to exist several Millennium groups who are planning to engage in violence around the year 2000. Several doctors have been murdered by anti-abortionists and some Catholic leaders have not categorically condemned these killings. In some cases the violent impulses in Christian groups turn against the groups themselves. Jim Jones led hundreds of his followers to commit suicide.
    Then there is racial violence, by no means dissociated from Christianity. Black churches have been burned in America and recently some Americans tied a black man with a rope and dragged him by their truck until he died. Such acts are often carried out by members of groups who also carry crosses. And in South Africa the inhuman system of apartheid was maintained by the church-going white community with the blessing of the churches and indeed the apartheid was practiced by the churches themselves.
    At an individual level, too, most horrible examples of violence are seen in the Western Christian nations. In some American and British cities a car driver may take out his gun and shoot senselessly whoever happens to be passing by. There are many cases of church-going and Christmas-celebrating serial killers who are privately busy sexually attacking young men or women, killing them in the most horrible way, and then burying them in their backyards. Also, prior to the media focus on churches cases of gross sexual and other abuse of orphans by the Catholic priests and brothers were not infrequent. And there are even larger number of examples of church-going parents who torture their children to death or to destroy them mentally by incestuous relations. In one such case, an American father recently killed his son by injecting him with the Aids virus.
    One may object that we are concentrating only on the negative, not providing any background analysis, and are not making necessary distinctions between various brands of Christianity and between secular and religious tendencies in the Christian world. But this is precisely what the Christians do to Muslims. They mostly talk and ask about acts of violence taking place in the vast Muslim world without making any distinctions, or analyzing them properly, or balancing them with the positive

  80. Thats sick And dont give shit that he did not know that sex with 13 yo is illegal Bullshit He should be deported Uk should protest us So far if u muslim u can killing ppl on London streets Now raper what next Became one of them U will be above law

  81. If he didn’t know about sex with girls and age limits in the UK how come he had the brains to book a hotel knowing he was taking the girl there and bought condoms as well. Im sorry but another case of playing the race and religion card to get off with things. I am now realising why there is beginning to get an even bigger divide between typical white citizens of the UK and some of the ethnic communites. It one rule for some and another rule for others. If you live in the UK you should make it your business to know what the laws are and the justice system should treat everyone the same regardless of race. I can now also recognise why we see info in the news all the time about countries in europe protesting about immigration because of decisions our publicised like this.

  82. If all women are “worthless” then why bother having sex with one???? If it wasn’t for a ‘Worthless woman’, then where would he be? I’ll tell you…. He wouldn’t even have been born!!!!!!!!

  83. This guy was supposedly “sexually naive”, but the knew how to buy a condom, what it was used for and how to rape this girl. Sexually naive my arse!!

  84. This quote from the Daily Mail article puts the position of women in Islam most succinctly:

    In other interviews with psychologists, Rashid claimed he had been taught in his school that ‘women are no more worthy than a lollipop that has been dropped on the ground’.

    Islam is incompatible with socially liberal democratic civilisation.

    Period.

  85. Seems like a load of bollocks to me. Someone “sexually naive” plans to take a girl to a Premier Inn and remembers to buy a packet of johnnies too? I’m not too sure on the subject of women in Islam being treated as equals because I don’t quite know some of the facts of Islam regarding, but the school teaching them women are worthless seems like a pile of shite he made up on the spot in court. He should have been more educated on the laws regardless, and the girl is partly to blame too for actually going with it and, unless I read it wrong the dude was seemingly seduced by her too.

  86. I was always under the impression that “ignorance is no defence”!!!! Ie the fact that he didn’t know it was illegal doesn’t make him innocent!

  87. I hope some christian vigilanti kills this disgusting piece of shit! They shit all over our religions, and shit on our laws. They dont give a fuck about anything. They take what they want when they want with no concern who they hurt in the process. They think anyone non muslim is beneath them. Funny they dont rape muslim girls. I guess its acceptable because their profit mohammed was a sick peadophile fuck as well. Fucking sick dogs. We will eventually be given 2 choices convert or be killed. They escape their shitty countries for better lives come to christian countries and try enforce their bullshit cult on everyone else! Time to wake up people make a stand now before they completely out number us!

  88. Under age sex is under she sex!! Send him to prison n then dead him bk home!!! What about his victim/s!!!!!! It be different if it were somewhere else!!!

  89. It’s amazing that so many people are falling for this storyline. What a gullible country we live in. Ignorance of the law is not an excuse, do you really think a Judge has stopped a rapist from going to jail because he wasn’t aware of the law? Or because of his religion? Both are highly irrelevant. Your religion or knowledge does not bypass the law. Although it would be a fantastic thing to commit any crime you liked and then play dumb to the rules in court. This would be the lead headline on BBC and Sky News if it had happened and the girls parents would be all over the media. It’s not even a major storyline…why? Because it’s nonsense. This is the perfect example of the control the media has. If this court case is even real…I guarantee there is about 50 reasons that this guy was not sent to prison and none of them will include his religious teachings. Wake up UK stop being so foolish and gullible.

  90. Oh yes, terribly naïve… but he could book a hotel room. “Ignorance of the law is no defen
    ce. He should be marked for life as a child molester, his name and address published for ever and also he should report every week to the court.

  91. England you are a bloody joke
    God help us all you might as well hand all your young girls on a plate To those pedophiles . Muhammad was a bloody pedophile what do you expect.

  92. My school didn’t teach me that rape was wrong my parents taught me this and my own moral being. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with this group off people,I wonder if the Muslim community will turn against him as the English culture would a paedo. I very much doubt it he will be embraced and looked after. He wants hanging by his balls the dirty bastard, she was child and him and adult end off.

  93. As usual all very confusing where islam is concerned – if his religion teaches men to respect women -why didn’t he ?he knew what he was doing he booked a room with sex on his mind -having sex with children is haram -forbidden in our culture -where is the -justice for the girl?the judge ? should be disbarred and one law for all.

  94. So now the great British law is letting a pedophile loose on the streets I’m not bothered what colour,religion,sexuality he’s a kiddie fiddler and shouldn’t be allowed in a civilised society

  95. Barbarians in barbarian countries acting barbarically. But this is the UK. I guess they are sinking into barbarism, too.

    Remind me again, why we spent endless lives and treasure to rescue these people in two World Wars? Never Again.

  96. at 13 she is a child, so it is rape i couldnt give a f*** what faith the pervert comes from, he should have been jailed and put on the sex offenders register like anybody else, if this school he attended in BRITAIN is teaching these morals to young males then it should be closed down, end of it.

  97. how would anybody feel from the muslim community if a none muslim raped one of their kiddies and walked free, because they believed muslim women had less rights than men in their communities, well that’s what somebody told him anyway, there would be an uproar

  98. When I studied the General Principles of English Law, at sixth form college, I was taught:
    “Ignorance of a law does not provide protection from that law”

    Hyperthetical example…
    If a person drank excess alcohol, then was stopped whilst driving, could not claim they ‘didn’t know’ as their defence…

    I therefore conclude, in my opinion (and what I was taught) that the ruling of the court in the article is absolutely outrageous and is it not, in itself, unlawful?

  99. This is total bull shit. If the son of bitch really belong to Muslim family, then he must know that any sexual relation between boy and girl without marriage is banned. Even Islam does not allow any relation with other woman except wife. He must get punishment if he really belong to Muslim community.

  100. He was savvy enough to be on Facebook. So, I’m not buying this “naive of the ways of others” bit. I also thought that ignorance of the law is no excuse. Apparently, in Britain, it is a legal defense.

  101. Mmmm doesn’t really sound like rape to me. She was texting and calling him for two months prior and went to a hotel alone with him, and though she’s only thirteen I doubt she was oblivious to what the intentions were. Yes she’s very young, but I knew kids in school that lost their virginity to each other at 12 and 13. Really he should be placed on the convicted sex offender list for having sex with a minor.

  102. Wtf is happening in our country where our children are not safe from these sick ‘ excuse making’ sick perverts that get let off to carry on their sick antics. God help our country.

  103. what kind of bull crap is this…. in islam you can have sex before you get married!!!!!!!!!!!

    What he did is one of the worst sins possible in Islam

  104. Ok so the judge says he is naive and lacked assertiveness, but he was able to chat on his mobile phone, sign up to facebook, connect and chat via facebook, book a hotel miles away, travel there, buy condoms, put a condom on (that’s a real challenge) and have sex. Pretty naive….nah. I think we should have one UK Law for all.

  105. I dont give a fuck what religion or if you grew up in a cage covered in a black sheet. can this asshole learn a lesson? he goes to a school to learn… well welcome to pedophile school, make an example of this little lying shitbag. I fuckin sure pay the piper when I fuck up EVERYTIME as a white man. so fuck this asshole cut his knob off! muslim style!

  106. Absolutely unbelievable – as are many of the arguments on here. For some unknown reason (beyond those of the darkest conspiracy theories), the bureaucracy of Europe has shaped western society into this.

    You can’t say this, or do that, or behave like this in case if offends this particular tom, dick or hazbullah. The bottom line of this, and indeed the human race as a whole, is that whilst religion is able to hold such an influence on society, and whilst people are entitled to escape prosecution for criminal activities on the basis of said religion, we will never, ever progress.

    Religion – Christianity, Islam, Judaism, whatever – is the primary cause for all grief and conflict across the globe, and in Europe today – in 2015 – this ridiculous tolerance of one of the most aggressive expansionist state religions since the days of the Crusades just goes to sum up what is entirely wrong with those locked in their ivory towers ruling the world. It’s the blind leading the blind.

    No religion should be tolerated in this way, indeed, the very concept of religion needs to be ironed out if we are ever to move forward as a species. Until that happens, I can’t see any way forward for those who place civility, service and good nature above garbled mis-translated Chinese whispers collated over the course of hundreds of years and placed together in a book and taught as fact. Or for those who trust in science and technology, who have the presence of mind to be able to conceive of a future that doesn’t involve blind faith in an omnipresent contradictory figment of imagination called ‘god’ or ‘allah’ or ‘jehovah’ or something.

    It’s not the bloody 13th century any more – why the hell can’t the world wake up?? I suppose it’s true that history is always doomed to repeat itself. Unfortunately, as the population bulges beyond the planet’s ability to sustain it, non-renewable resources are gobbled up, governments fail, and people become more and more stupid, then this is the future. Cheers.

  107. Why is it that everyone else would have gone to jail because ignorance of the law is no excuse or defence. 18 years old living in the UK and did not know he was breaking the law, c’mon. I do not believe it one little bit. It’s one politically correct law for them and UK law for everyone else

  108. This is not unusual in the so called British Law for all to often the penalty
    does not fit the crime . I often wonder where or how they our judges come
    too their verdicts ? ,They are certainly frightened of certain religions.

  109. This is all loader bull shit,no where in Islam that says women should be treated like that ,Islam respect women and secondly no one is allowed to have sex outside marriage so the media try to make you believe all this rubbish

  110. if it was any other country he would get his just deserts why are the judges so naive in this country you would get a stronger sentence nicking a bag of maltesers from the corner shop ludicrous is this human rights weeeeeell that’s a load of bollocks to sorry but freedom of speech has gone out of the window ?

  111. What happened to ignorantis et non excusat?? Ignorance of the law is no excuse, a tacet of the English legal system. This creates a very dangerous precident. The matter should be referred to the sentencing appeals service

  112. Lock Him up! If he (they) live in THIs country they abide by THIS country’s laws… This country is WAYYY too soft on people like this!

  113. For all those bashing islam on this post ask yourselves are you guys even making any sense?1400 years ago the average expected lifespan of a person was 30 years and not 70 or 80 like it is now…it was perfectly normal for a nine year old to be married at that time…Muhammed was SLANDERED by many of his enemies can you show me a single one who ridiculed him on this point? None because it was ok at that time and now the standards of societies have changed…even the aisha was not 9 at the time of consumation https://truthhazratayesha.wordpress.com/2012/07/21/real-age-of-hazrat-ayesha-siddiqa-19-21-when-she-got-married wake up and stop hating we have enough hate in this world already

  114. I don’t give a monkeys how old Muhammad or his wife was when they had sex, that was then and this is now – can we look at things without having to refer to a bunch of fanciful old texts that have little if anything at all to do with modern society, other than a few supposed moral precepts.

    The problem here is an old one – equality, or rather a lack of it; all who come before the law should be treated just the same! However, this has never been true and never will be, despite what the judiciary claim.

    I knew from an early age that ignorance of the law was no defence, that knowledge came from parents, teachers, the Police, church etc. Along with a set of simple ethics and morals (broadly based on exposure to Judaistic/Christian concepts – not that I’m a believer in any religion). Putting that aside, I also knew intrinsically (by the time I was 11 or 12) that having sex with an under age girl was a serious offence. To claim ignorance of this fact due to upbringing points a very sharp stick of neglect at this mans parents, educators, religious teachers and wider family.

    There have been numerous cases over the last year of ‘Muslim’ paedophiles – make no mistake thats what they are – being prosecuted and sent down, far more than any other single ethnic group, what does this tell you about their views of young, immature white women, their own depravity and the excuses they put forward as their defense??

    Its outrageous that the judge in this case handed down a suspended sentence, why isn’t this obvious danger to society (esp children) on the Sex Offenders Register? – If this had been a white guy it would’ve been a whole different story and thats what angers me, this is outright racism, Political Correctness scude at 90 degrees…………….

    Its about time the Muslim community here in the UK got with the program, because in the end the rest of the population will finally call ‘enough is enough’ and the shite will hit the fan, literally!

    On a wider note, am I the only one who couldn’t give a stuff if three teenagers have run off to become ‘Jihadi wives’?? Just one more reason why you guys need to take a long hard look at yourselves and the sort of parents you are.

    Some might view what I have written as racist, its not, its the view of a middle aged guy, with few if any political leanings, who’s sick to the back teeth hearing and reading about stories like this week after week knowing that my so called government is doing nothing to combat this insidious growth within our communities. As a former soldier I regard myself as a patriot, if you regard the above as being a racist, I plain just don’t care, its your problem not mine……….

  115. crime is crime,, law is law,, ignorant should be punished more,, common sense is not taught ,, if he can book a hotel room,, he is smart enough to know not to rape or have sex with 13 yr old

  116. Regardless of race or religion or whatever other excuse anyone can come up with, in the United Kingdom you are governed by the uk law, it is illegal to have sex with a 13 year old!!!!!!

  117. It appears to me that all British schools (comprehensives & private) come under the laws that state that they can not refuse admission to a child because of religion.
    I went to a private boarding school which is a Christian establishment, but several of my immediate friends were Muslim from different countries. My best friend there was & still is a practicing Jew.
    So how is it these Islamic schools are allowed to only take Muslim pupils?

  118. Why the hell should his religion have any staid as to the law. You have sex with a minor you should be sentenced as you have had sex with a minor. Ignorant or not “I’m sorry, I didn’t know” is a piss poor excuse and would be laughed at in any other situation.

  119. How do the stinky Muslims get away with this stuff. Their entire religion is a joke. Their prophet Muhammad was a sodomizing boy molester. This piece of horse dung should be convicted of rape and sent to prison. The school that taught him should be closed and burned to the ground with the teachers inside. He knew what he did was wrong but didn’t care. Send all of these sand people back to their horrible backward smelly countries, They do not belong in a civilized society.

  120. I am Polish lady and don’t care of Allah’s words and do hope that the courts in this country don’t too. Religion has nothing to do with state law. And you Mahomet go to the hell, where’s your pace.

  121. What makes this Adil Rashid so special that he can escape a prison sentence for this?

    Seriously, it’s about time these Muslims all towed the line and respected our laws, customs and cultures and not the other way around, no wonder they go around doing what ever they want.

    I’d do away with these Muslim faith schools, this lot need to learn our ways if they are to reside here instead of demanding special attention due to their religion which is basically just a cover for their Ideology.

    Islam has no place in the UK and Europe and that Adil Rashid would be serving a lengthy spell inside prison and be straight on the sex offenders register if I was the judge.

    What’s the betting the girl was white too?

  122. ISLAM IS A RELIGION *POLITICAL IDEOLOGY* A RELIGION IS NOT A RACE. TO HATE A RELIGION YOU CANNOT BE CALLED A RACIST!!! PEOPLE LOVE TO PULL THE RACIST CARD SHOWING THEIR OWN IGNORANCE OF WORDS AND MEANINGS.. SO THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE CALLS YOU A RACIST FOR HATING A MUSLIM/ISLAM TELL THEM TO GO BUY A DICTIONARY!

  123. IGNORANCE OF THE LAW IS NOT AN EXCUSE! I don’t care if your school didn’t teach you it’s illegal to have sex with a child… It’s illegal to have sex with a child period and forced sex is illegal!!! Send this sexual predator to jail!!!

  124. This article is an express delivery load of pure bullshit. It’s aimed at feeble minded bigoted morons who are easily convinced by Jew Trolls that a billion Muslims in The World are rapists. What a fucking joke

  125. Ur all going to far looking at rules of religions and bar staff being tricked it’s all bullshit no matter how u look at this or who did it he’s just a dirty little man who needs he’s face stamped on an there’s a long line of white black Chinese n wa ever else u want to say in the line behind him let’s just hope we meet

  126. Can i just add that any man who treats a woman like this is not a muslim by treating a woman in this way he should no longer call himself a muslim i am Agnostic but i have studied several religious books and in muslim comunity they do all they can to protect women but remember in all races and all religions there is bound to be a few criminals and what the court said was with his ignorance sending him to jail would be worse which, it would. The main concern here is that this main masquerades himself as a muslim and sullies the name of that religion also any many who commits crimes against the laws of the land is commiting sin which is stated in islam time and again.

  127. F*CK religions! How about the fact that she was a child, non consenting. Children aren’t capable of consent because they are not adult enough to understand all the repercussions of sex. Children also are not capable of protecting themselves from such an attacker. We as a society should be protecting our children not the dumb*ss adult whom is hiding behind his warped religion.

  128. Sad, pathetic excuse that he has gone to an Islamic school, unaware – it’s the country’s law, not his school’s teachings. This country and the judge who sentenced him, should hang their heads in shame. Was the girl British? As in white. That’s usually a factor in Muslim rapes here.

  129. I am not rasist but what he did to that little girl is horribul i couldnt care less about where i was schooled he should have known what he was doing dose he watch the new about all that rapes and things .he knew what he was doing and that it was illigal .he is not dump he dint care less what would happen .people like that need locking up

  130. Just found out this is not true this guy is a 27 year old Muslim from Bradford plays cricket for England never believe what you read

  131. Well im of no religion at all i dont believe in it as it causes more problems than it solves im not racist to anybody except to hateful Muslim’s or anyone of that origin if this little shit wants to be ignorant like he’s from 7th century then us English should punish him like we are in the 7th century ie public execution hanging or hung drawn & quartered i mean come on people he’s 18 he knows wright from wrong i say jail him or give him to the girls parents let then teach him a lesson or deport the prick or all of them scum fuck um all all they do is cause trubble wars well Americans do that to but still 1 clip on you tube is of a crowd of Muslims saying they want to turn Buckingham palace into a mosque well fuck you then sum1 asked them where would the Queen live they said either become a muslim or get out the country mother fuckers it time we took briton back people

  132. THIS IS DISGUSTING, this girl was raped by a pedophile simple as that. Why is England putting up with this blatant abuse of our country’s LAW. If this was a dangerous driving matter it would have been dealt with accordingly. Likewise if I were abroad and broke the law I would EXPECT to be dealt with by that country’s Laws. They use our national health, take our men s jobs, live on our benefits, have no respect for women and now they RAPE our children. England is not ours anymore. Its a disgrace.

  133. Taking the piss or what? How long as he been in the UK for? Everyone fucking knows you can’t do shit like that. Does he not watch the news fuck sake… Omg I want to become a judge now at least I know right from wrong unlike some judges.

  134. ALL religion is evil. Pointless vile fairytales for the brain dead. Grow up people, look up Christopher Hitchens on you tube and see the futility of all your total rubbish. .. oh and jail the rapist. There are some guys in prison who don’t know its illegal to rape him…

  135. GoT to say I have not read all the comments as so many are just vitriol given from an entrenched position. But why is the school he claims to have learnt that females (nearly wrote women) are worthless not named? If he did learn it at school shouldn’t they be shut? And for the record I always thought ignorance was no defence under the law.

  136. Im sick and tired of hearing its racism if it doesnt fit!!!!!! Stop playing the victims packistani muslims all around the world… My Turkish Muslim friends are sick of you lot ….

  137. There should be a uprising in Britain or a political assassination so someone can take over and run this country properly,bring on a civil war

  138. who cares what he is he abused a kid hes a child rapest he should of gone to jail , if the girl was 5 year old would he of said the same , what a joke chop his nuts off

  139. Tbh he shud av gt sentence im a muslim i dnt knw y most of u are going of the subject jst cuz he a muslim rapes happen frm people in all religions funny hw wen it cmz to a muslim u go off suject grw up

  140. please, consider again about the title of the article you made, before people around the world misunderstand about it. Thanks..

  141. It’s the 21st century people. There is no magical person in the sky controlling the world. These old books with make believe stories in them should not control your lives. Life is what YOU make it. Wake up and smell the coffee..read a fairytale book and put that into practice…far better off than the brain washing holy books.

  142. No offense, yes it is wrong for a 18 year old to have sex with a 13 year old and it’s under aged, but where does the word rape come from? The 13 year old girl as described above seemed that she wanted to have sex with this guy, so why is this said to be rape?

  143. islam has done this, islam has done that, what about all the negative things people do around the world whose religion is not quoted unless they are muslim. Im not for one second agreeing with what this boy has done far from it, it just articles like these i see post all over social media is purposely made to make us aware of islam and how toxic and evil its teaching are when this is far from the case. people just need to open their minds and see what these media global giants are doing to the public and just making them sponges to what they release. The moment people start seeing these companies for what they really are, and the real agenda to why this hate is being generated people will realise.

  144. I’ve been told by the police that ignorance of the law is no excuse. So I guess that I can rape underage girls and it’s okay, but, if I fail to make a complete stop at a stop sign I’ll get a ticket.

    The rapist didn’t even get a fine.

    This is obscene. Execute the judge, AND the rapist.

  145. Sobia is right ilke hr comment ,anyway ds guy had sex wd a 13 yr old grl,de grl was willing , he shoud b free2 walk ,cuz he didnt rape hr,she agreed,well done 2 hm 4havn a good 1, atahur rahman

  146. If his school can’t teach him right from wrong why is it still open and in British law ignorance is no defence so the judge should have treated him the same as any British citizen and jailed him for rape

  147. That’s bullshit so y arnt Muslims having underage sex with there own muslim girls because they no its wrong and would bring dishonor on there families so it comes down to race and that white girls r worthless lollipops when is our justice system going to wake up and stop pussy footing round other religions l, absolute joke

  148. These people are laughing at us and making fun of our laws, until it’s made absolutely clear to these people that they live here and abide by our laws, personally I think they are pushing the justice system to see how far they can go to abuse the law and get away with anything, I feel we as a nation we should punish these people to the fullest extent of the law when needs be and maybe it will teach them to follow our laws as we have to do in their countries

  149. Does it really matter what religion or race he is what he did was disgraceful that was a child he raped he should have been jailed spin the judge any rubbish to escape jail

  150. Should be jailed no matter what “”religion he is.the UK law is a fucking joke””if he was jailed let the inmates sort justice “there would be a lot of eager participants to serve justice as our laws are clearly a laughing stock to invite othwr muslums to do thr same ‘”then plead ignorance “”fucking joke system !!

  151. Muslim, Christian or whatever. The law is written for what is right or wrong. This boy clearly broke thw law and a victim has had to pay. Doesnt matter what your beliefs are, you adire to the law to the country you live in. So to think women are lesser beings, he should be taught the lesson of imprisonment to learn otherwise. Was there not a part in his mind that told him it was wrong, he that stupid. Access to Facebook then obviously had access to the web for information. If this is our justice syatem, then let me be the new enforcer and I’ll sort the perverts out

  152. what he needs is his head chopped off stinking dirty bastard if ya in this country you live by british law horrible little shitbag!!!!!!

  153. That judge has devalued that little girls life and he need a prison sentence for helping a pedo do his job, of course he knows right from wrong hello newspapers, TV Facebook does the Muslim guy not read I hope justice one way or another, no wonder people are taking the law into there own hands god bless that little girl

  154. This guy went to islamic school and got all the education what he needed to be able to or potentially live a peaceful life. Regardless what he said about him getting taught “womans are worthless”(whuch i dont belive). He then went on-line dating and started having a relationship with a 13 year old girl (minor). Then he decided to have sex with her which is evident he was intentionally wanted to do that or he would not have booked a hotel and dressed himself up for the occasion by wearing a condom. He knows he has done wrong and he was going to get punished for it. Therefore he did try to invade the justice of court by using a religious excuse by saying it was allowed to have sex with a 13 year old and he didnt think there was anything wrong with it. Judge bought the story beliving he was naive to sexual activity which is quite contradicting statment when expecially he cant be that naive when he knew you had to wear a condom so a person does not get pregnant and need a location to do it in. This person has fooled the system and his case should get reopened and get trailed again with justice of law and punishment which gets given for having sex with a minor, which i belive is a jail sentense. Not using or degarding islamic law and insulting fellow muslims for his wrong doing to walk free. I belive the law is the same for everyone. I am a muslim and i follow the law in this country and i belive who do wrong should get punished equally the same regardless of who they are and should get punished for there crime equally. He is a adult and should get trailed like a adult and justic should get served to him like a adult.

  155. we don’t know all the details but what we know is a girl thirteen was raped . and a adult was caught , the full British law applies to us all ,religion and ignorance to no defence ! he should be in jail and WE SHOULD BE SENDING A MESSAGE TO ALL you live in Britain then you will abide by OUR LAWS , plus the judge in this case should be removed and retired forthwith

  156. The muslim prophet mohammad had sex with an 8 year old you know, of course muslims will jump at the fact that they where ‘willingly’ married and it was of course deemed perfectly fine in the eyes of their oh so wise god. I’m going to put it simply, contradictory to what muslims say on here, islam does not teach respect or elevate women… if that where the case then men would be wearing Burkas, men’s testimonies in court would only count as 1/4 , men would have to walk behind women and little boys could be married off to older men.

    islam is a barbaric and backward cult that has been forced on our society, it does not reflect our values on most things and does not even try to hide that fact. If you bring up the fact you disagree with islam you are instantly branded a racist… Well here is something I want to say – I disagree with islam and think it is a backward cult that needs to be banned, also islam is not a race so stop trying to silence everyone with the race card.

  157. What a joke whats this country coming to if the government or the law won’t do anything then we should take the law in are own hands and deal with it so your telling me he didn’t know he was braking the law what a load of shit everyone knows that

  158. The world is going soft. If you migrate to another Country its not a right its a privledge. You follow their
    Rules under their Government. Don’t try bringing your deep seated barbaric beliefs into countries that don’t tolerate it. If you can’t obey go back to your ignorant and backward place of birth..

  159. He is in England. He knows the laws and he is using it to skip out on it. So the girl is 13 that’s a piss poor excuse , and saying a girl is as worthless as a lollipop on the ground proves it.. SO he walks just because of his faith if it was a pedophile he would be jailed no matter what so why let him off I think the Judge is weak, I would have had him in Jail for 10 yrs and evaluated for the next 5 yrs then see if things change this is Brittan not ISLAMNATION SO FOLLOW OUR RULES OR GTFO. Also after 5 yrs if he gets to know the laws of all nations that are not his.. THen maybe after a gang rapes him send him home packing FOCK HIS LAWS THATS A EXCUSE!!!.Depends if he lives the 10 yrs…

  160. sooo… with this precedent being set like this, that means… all i have to do is think women are worthless, and they are, and i can then rape them without the slightest hassle from this judge and court? ok slimeballs! well i won’t think that way, even if you seem to. go to hell.

  161. the young fellow indicates he was seduced by the girl so it wasn’t his fault. you see how this goes? under sharia law the girl would be in very hot water and in most infested areas of the world she might end up no longer with us. these preprogrammed morons should be sent back where they came from, because they just progressively destroy civilization and humanity everywhere they infest.

  162. I think everyone who does that men or women should be equal. I’m not racist one bit but I have noticed that white men and women get taken down for years for doing this but I don’t understand why people from different countries get different punishments? Whether they knew or didn’t know what was right and wrong. I know everyone is different in there own why but punishment should be the same thing for everyone not just a few people it’s wrong

  163. What whiney arse bullshit. Give him 5, with a minimum of 3 1/2 years in PRISON. I’m sure the other inmates will instruct him in what is illegal, and what’s not! And, put this useless prick of a judge in the cell next to him!

  164. This Islamic Pig would be Dead if that was my daughter! Apparently, no English politicians have any balls, or are they all neutered? Islam is the Syphilis of the Soul and the Super Highway straight to the bowels of Hell, where their satan/allah await all Muslims and Sinners! This member of the Suidae family needs to be sent to his allah in Hell ASAP! Only good muslims are dead muslims!

  165. Ignorance ofthe law isno excuse..they say he is sexually niave…he knew enough to wear a condom? Gobsmackedhope this goesto court of appeal! Sickened

  166. I understand Islam quite well.. having lived in the M.E. for over 30 years and read the Qur’an in Arabic, Urdu and Farsi (not to mention English which translates a LOT of the more disgusting passages into tamer verses); Islam is a cult… it is EVIL. It is the Ebola Virus on humanity. The earliest passages in the Qur’an which speak to peaceful co-existence with “believers of the cross” are Abrogated by the later passages extolling death and violence to same… Although Al-taqiyya promotes lying to advance the cause of Islam, those of us who KNOW the doctrines are not so deceived. As for those who cry “racism” against any who oppose Islam, this is pure misdirection. Islam is NOT a RACE, but a total system of government, judicial, social AND pseudo-religious. It was created, out of whole cloth, by a child-raping, barbarian warlord bent on total conquest. ISIS is actually the most pure embodiment of Islam and all it stands for… the reason “moderate” Islamic nations and adherents have an issue with ISIS is due to their perception that ISIS has let the cat out of the bag too soon… they don’t condemn their ACTS, just their timing. The Turkish PM said it best when (I’m paraphrasing here), he proclaimed that there is NO SUCH THING as “moderate” Islam… JUST ISLAM! Here’s a few resources to explore…

    For any of the scum who adhere to the teachings of the pedophile “prophet” that wish to debate me, by all means, let ‘er rip! I can defeat EVERY single LIE you tell with the verbatim text of your unholy manifesto.

    People who follow the pedophile “prophet” are of the same ilk that would want to marry Charles Mansion or Ted Bundy. They are SICK, EVIL, TWISTED savages who have ZERO regard for anyone else. They have NO legitimate right to “practice” this evil blood-cult under the guise of religion, any more than Charles Manson had the “right” to orchestrate the murders in Hollywood.

    ANY person who can Adore, Worship. or Revere a child-raping savage is beyond acceptable in civilized society.

  167. He just like the prophet Mohammed are pedophiles. He raped a 13 year old girl and Mohammed raped a 9 year old. He should be sent to jail for raping a 13 year old no excuse. Oh I didn’t know it was wrong cuz the religion I practice says it is okay to be a pedophile is no excuse. Too bad he wasn’t here in the USA he would be convicted and registered as a sec offender for life for his disgusting behavior.

  168. Looking and following the disastrous situation in England in the last 20 years ,due to the the excessive political correctiness,It may be too late for many Europian Countries already .

  169. We’ll be was obviously not so niave! As he had bought condoms!! Premeditated!!! The judge needs a kick up the arse!!!!

  170. I am totally disgusted with the courts ruling. Weather he was educated or not before a person goes to another town, city, state, country they should be made aware of what is allowed and what’s not. Its bull shit.

  171. Where were the hotel reception staff. Surely they must have seen them enter the hotel and noticed her young age. If i were her parents i would be suing the hotel .

  172. British government should first ban the schools where it was teaches that women are worth less and to sex with a girl of thirteen is not a crime.

  173. Pedophile…don’t care what religion you claim to follow, don’t care about the colour of your skin, you have sex with a child you go to prison…

  174. How can I put this simply? When a person moves to another country, that person is responsible for knowing and following the laws of that land. England has over 1,400 girls raped in the Rotherham section of London. It is only a matter of time before the Brits get sick of this crap. They need to throw the pedophiles and animal rapists out of the country. We need to do the same. If any one of those child rapist had touched one of mine, there wouldn’t be a safe place for him to hide. I would hunt him down, and he would die a most painful death.
    I don’t give one damn what Islam says. Rape a child here, and you will go to prison; unless the parents of that child get to you first. Btw the most hardened prisoners in the USA cannot stand animal or child abusers. They will be waiting for savages that claim that “Allah ” protects them from prosecution. ******************A child rapist becomes everybody’s bitch in prison. ****************************************

  175. Ravn Rey, no one cares what your books says. This ins’t the middle east, and it isn’t 825 AD….Keep your inferior, child raping, animal raping, women abusing sub-human, inferior religion in the middle east.

  176. Sooo… when someone goes to court, just bring your own laws right along with you, and you get off Scot Free, so to speak. Here’s a fun exercise: Make up laws you like and have them typed up and carry them with you at all times. Those your YOUR laws buddy. Now you have to live with em! Either that, or EDIT the laws to your liking, whenever you see the need.

  177. 1) You cant be racist against a religion, its a religion not a race!
    2) Ignorance of British Law is not a defence.
    3) He committed the offence in Britain under British Law he should be punished under British Law. His religion counts for jack shit.
    4). Its this kind of crap the Judge pulls that creates a one rule for them, one rule for everyone else thing.
    5) Its British Law, if your British or in Great Britain for any reason follow the Law. If you do not like the Laws in GB then piss off to a country that has Laws you do like.

  178. well then the judge should be brought up against the people and given a full life term , i can’t face the murder charges for killing a paedophile then as my religion doesn’t tell me it’s wrong to take away scum of the earth that’s taken the innocence of a child away

  179. The judges in England were brought up in a time when they used to get beaten for even masturbation. Sex is something that is natural. Of course we must protect our young. Always. That is what I am trying to do.

  180. I always come away from religious indoctrination. I want to think about things with more reason, sensibility and natural thought. You MUST think away from the media hype. They sell newspapers and they don’t give a stuff about anything else.

  181. I believe that if we want to protect our children then we need to learn about and understand paedophiles. If you just bury your head in the sand then that is your choice.

  182. Its a disgrace…. 18 and dint know sex with underage girl was against the law of the COUNTRY he lives in does he not read paper watch tv or talk to family and friends …. the Judge in this case should bee sacked to he has no right to protect this low life he is there to protect the young girl

  184. Its not a case of his religion did not teach him my religion did not teach me either but my common sense morals and just some brains tell me this is wrong he is in this countryand as a resident of the UK he should be held to the wake

    standards as everyone else I know some people from other religions that teach their sons that women are worthless and the lived in this country all their lives but if they raped a 13 yr old child they would be jailed quicker than you can say pervert so this is no different no religion teaches you that sex with a child is wrong if this has been this idiot judges child you can bet your life he would have been jailed but yet again we bck down from the Muslim religion and that’s not racsist its a fact and I for one are sick of it it’s ti e we took our country try bck and protected our children against the self confessed ignorance of the Muslim religion

  185. Judges in this country need to be sacked for such miscarriages of justice – their belittling of the crime in this way hurts not only the poor victim it belittles the police and CPS in their attempts to get justice for the victim – just think of the hours and manpower probably put into these cases just to have them dismissed in this way by a stupid man who supposedly has the ‘honour’ of being a judge – its pathetic. There should be standard rulings for specific serious crimes, that are not belittled by judges, and not allowed to be eroded by ‘good behaviour’ or bail time etc. UK justice needs to be badly overhauled in favour of the victim instead of the perpetrator with consistency from every court in the land not on a whim from one person the judge!
