MK at The Midnight Sun recently posted about a Muslim man who was let off the hook for driving 64mph in a 30mph area. This is “fast enough to qualify for instant disqualification.” The offender, Mohammad Anwar, did not lose his licence to drive, though. Why? Well, because not having a licence would make it difficult [for him] to commute between his two wives and fulfil his matrimonial duties… the Muslim restaurant owner has one wife in Motherwell and another in Glasgow – he is allowed up to four under his religion – and sleeps with them on alternate nights.
This seems like a piss poor excuse to me, but it doesn’t get my blood boiling like the following case of special treatment for those who belong to the sensitive faith of Islam:
Muslim sex offenders could opt out of treatment programme ‘because it’s against their faith’
Muslim sex offenders are asking to be let off a prison treatment programme on religious grounds.
Rapists, paedophiles and other dangerous attackers are expected to discuss their crimes with other inmates as a condition of release.
But Muslim prisoners complain that criminals should not have to talk about their offences – a “legitimate Islamic position”, according to Ahtsham Ali, the Prison Service’s Muslim adviser.
One thousand inmates were put on the Sex Offender Treatment Programme last year with places usually reserved for the most dangerous attackers.
Failure to complete the course can weigh against an offender at parole hearings.
The possibility of an exemption for Muslims came to light in a letter from an unnamed inmate to Inside Time, a newspaper for prisoners.
The convict said: “I have always insisted that it was against Islamic teachings to discuss your offence to anyone, let alone act it out within a peer group.”
Experts said ministers, who have launched a review of the issue, could face a legal challenge from Muslims kept longer in prison because they had not undergone the treatment programme.
Harry Fletcher, of the probation union Napo, said: “If they do not take part, Muslim sex offenders are likely to serve longer sentences, possibly the whole of their term, before they are released.”
I don’t give an Allah damn who you are or what religion you claim, if you are a pedophile, rapist, child molester or some other scumbag, the officers at the correctional facility in which you find yourself had better be able to see progress in your condition.
Also, notice how they are appealing to Islam? Where was the religious ferver when the crimes were being committed?
