Islamic studies tutor raped 14-year-old girl and left her pregnant

UK News 24 – LBR.

LONDON – An Islamic studies tutor who raped a 14-year-old pupil and left her pregnant during a five-year campaign of abuse has been jailed for 19 years.

Mohammed Islam, 31, from Bethnal Green, started molesting the schoolgirl in 2010 when she was just nine, while teaching the Koran to children at an East End Islamic centre.

She “felt powerless” to stop the sex attacks, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard, which culminated in Islam raping and impregnating her in July last year.

Prosecutor Robert Brown said the girl then delayed having an abortion so tests could prove Islam was the father.

The “respected” tutor initially claimed his victim had initiated sex despite her young age, but he admitted rape and sexual activity with a child when she agreed to testify against him.

The girl’s father, in a victim impact statement, said: “What Mohammed has done to my daughter has broken me.

“In our religion she is no longer considered a virgin and is therefore unable or unlikely to get married to have a family.

“I am devastated. I am so angry. I only hope and pray for her that this abuse will not have a long term effect on her.”
