Muslim rape gang gave 14-year-old drink and raped her repeatedly — “I was nothing but a toy to play with”

Why does this keep happening? One survivor of a Muslim rape gang in the UK said that her rapists would quote Quran to her, and believed their actions justified by Islam.

The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

“‘I was nothing but a toy to play with’: Victim of Bradford sex abuse gang who plied her with drink and raped her when she was 14 speaks out as they are jailed for more than 130 years,” by Terri-Ann Williams and Joe Middleton, Mailonline, February 27, 2019:

The victim of a Bradford sex abuse gang who plied her with drink and raped her when she was 14-years-old has spoken out- as the depraved group are jailed for more than 130 years.

The group of nine men were jailed this afternoon at Bradford Crown Court with the Judge Durham Hall saying the girls were ‘sexually abused following grooming’ and ‘violence’.

A harrowing victim impact statement from one of the victims was read out in court saying she was ‘nothing but a toy to play with’ by the sordid gang.

She said: ‘I have the most irrational thoughts because of anxiety.

‘I have fear going to the shops, and very rarely go to restaurants or out on an evening with friends.

‘I was manipulated, used, nothing but a toy to play with. I understand this because new relationships are so much different.

‘I have had years of counselling to understand it wasn’t love it was grooming.

‘When Basharat was arrested I could not leave the house for three months.

‘I had to leave my job because of the dread of him or someone he knew walking through the door.

‘It pains me to see my dad in panic at the thought of Basharat turning up at our house.’

During the trial prosecutor Kama Mell QC said that the teenagers had been ‘ripe and vulnerable to manipulation’ and were subsequently subjected to a range of sexual abuse at the hands of the men in order ‘to satisfy their sexual desires’.

Devout Muslim sentenced to 16 years in prison for rape of schoolgirls

Judge Martin Steiger and the Manchester Evening News are sure that Mohammed Shaheen was “masquerading” as a devout Muslim. After all, a rapist couldn’t be a devout Muslim, right?

Yet on what do they base that assumption? The seizure of Infidel girls and their use as sex slaves is sanctioned in the Qur’an. According to Islamic law, Muslim men can take “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet! Lo! We have made lawful unto thee thy wives unto whom thou hast paid their dowries, and those whom thy right hand possesseth of those whom Allah hath given thee as spoils of war” (33:50). 4:3 and 4:24 extend this privilege to Muslim men in general. The Qur’an says that a man may have sex with his wives and with these slave girls: “The believers must (eventually) win through, those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess, for (in their case) they are free from blame.” (Qur’an 23:1-6)

The rape of captive women is also sanctioned in Islamic tradition:

Abu Sirma said to Abu Sa’id al Khadri (Allah he pleased with him): 0 Abu Sa’id, did you hear Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) mentioning al-’azl? He said: Yes, and added: We went out with Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing ‘azl (Withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him), and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born. (Sahih Muslim 3371)

It is also in Islamic law: “When a child or a woman is taken captive, they become slaves by the fact of capture, and the woman’s previous marriage is immediately annulled.” (Umdat al-Salik O9.13)

The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that meant Muslims would take slaves. In a subsequent interview he elaborated:

Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars—there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners. The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on.

When a slave market is erected, which is a market in which are sold slaves and sex-slaves, which are called in the Qur’an by the name milk al-yamin, “that which your right hands possess” [Koran 4:24]. This is a verse from the Qur’an which is still in force, and has not been abrogated. The milk al-yamin are the sex-slaves. You go to the market, look at the sex-slave, and buy her. She becomes like your wife, (but) she doesn’t need a (marriage) contract or a divorce like a free woman, nor does she need a wali. All scholars agree on this point—there is no disagreement from any of them. […] When I want a sex slave, I just go to the market and choose the woman I like and purchase her.

Around the same time, on May 25, 2011, a female Kuwaiti politician, Salwa al-Mutairi, also spoke out in favor of the Islamic practice of sexual slavery of non-Muslim women, emphasizing that the practice accorded with Islamic law and the parameters of Islamic morality.

A merchant told me that he would like to have a sex slave. He said he would not be negligent with her, and that Islam permitted this sort of thing. He was speaking the truth. I brought up [this man’s] situation to the muftis in Mecca. I told them that I had a question, since they were men who specialized in what was halal, and what was good, and who loved women. I said, “What is the law of sex slaves?”

The mufti said, “With the law of sex slaves, there must be a Muslim nation at war with a Christian nation, or a nation which is not of the religion, not of the religion of Islam. And there must be prisoners of war.”

“Is this forbidden by Islam?” I asked.

“Absolutely not. Sex slaves are not forbidden by Islam. On the contrary, sex slaves are under a different law than the free woman. The free woman must be completely covered except for her face and hands. But the sex slave can be naked from the waist up. She differs a lot from the free woman. While the free woman requires a marriage contract, the sex slave does not—she only needs to be purchased by her husband, and that’s it. Therefore the sex slave is different than the free woman.”

The savage exploitation of girls and young women is, unfortunately, a cross-cultural phenomenon, but only in Islamic law does it carry divine sanction.

Mohammed Shaheen

“Rapist who masqueraded as a devout Muslim is jailed for 16 years for sex attacks on schoolgirls,” by Chris Osuh, Manchester Evening News, May 7, 2016 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A rapist who masqueraded as a devout Muslim was blasted as a hypocrite by a judge as he was jailed for 16 years for attacks on schoolgirls.

Mohammed Shaheen, of Harrow Street, Crumpsall, held himself out as a faithful believer who had been framed by his two victims.

But a Manchester Crown Court jury rejected his pleas of innocence and found him guilty of seven sex charges, including specimen charges reflecting multiple incidents of rape.

Jobbing decorator Shaheen, a 43-year-old father-of-seven, raped and groped the underage teenagers in Longsight and Crumpsall and then ordered them to keep silent.

One of the victims was told that if she spoke of what he had done he would kill himself.

He also told her he had an indecent recording of her that he would distribute if she reported him.

However Shaheen’s abuse of the pair came to light in 2014, after the older of the girls finally found the courage to confide in a schoolfriend. By that stage Shaheen had tried to force her into a degrading sex act.

In video interviews taken after his behaviour came to light, the girls were ‘hesitant, anxious, and plainly vulnerable’, Judge Martin Steiger QC said in Shaheen’s sentencing hearing.

But since speaking of their ordeal to police ‘there has been a considerable development in their self-confidence’, the judge said.

Shaheen has no previous convictions, but the court heard evidence there had been accusations of similar offending when he was living in Pakistan….

Sending him down, Judge Martin Steiger QC said: “He masqueraded as religious when all along he was behaving in this hypocritical way. He said that if it got out he would kill himself with a knife….
