Muslim Reaction to Bristol Sex Ring

This is a sick story, as a Muslim it's especially shocking and disappointing to see that people of a Somali background are the abusers here. Somali people are generally Muslims and are good conservative people.

The news article does not mention the religion of these criminals but it's important to remind folk that Islam does not allow such corrupt actions as there are some Islamophobes out there who will use the misery of raped women to hate-monger against Muslims.

Opposing Sexual Grooming of Children - Alyas Karmani

In the last couple of years Muslims in the UK have been blamed by the media for "sexual grooming of children" Although the majority of people convicted of this crime were non-Muslims. Muslims are the only ones being mentioned in the news as ("MUSLIM" Men Sexual Grooming Girls).

Thirteen men have been convicted of running a sex ring that saw teenage British girls abused, raped and prostituted.

Victims were sexually abused and passed around the men's friends for money in Bristol.
The court heard several of the girls were groomed to the extent they believed abuse was part of loving relationships they were having with the defendants.

The gang, all of whom are of Somali origin, faced more than 40 charges involving 10 victims aged between 13 and 17, mostly over offences that happened from autumn 2012.

Seven men were convicted at Bristol Crown Court on Wednesday and six following a separate trial in May, but details of the cases can only be revealed now after reporting restrictions were lifted by a judge.

Some of the girls were persuaded to have sex with their 'boyfriend's' friends after being told it was Somali "culture and tradition" and "men always have sex with each other's girlfriends".

Described as "vulnerable" due to their age and circumstances, the victims were paid as little as £30 or given drugs, alcohol and gifts to perform sex acts on older men.

The court was told of one night that saw a 13-year-old girl raped four times by three different men, after being trafficked across the city to a budget chain hotel by one of her abusers. [MSN]

Miracles performed by Prophet Muhammad (p):

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
