This is Western law, a western court -- the UK. A teacher at a mosque who abused and beat chidren gets a suspended sentence because child abuse is part and parcel of the sharia. Is it any wonder that these children grow up void of humanity?
Judge Robert Altham said Patel had an "outdated understanding of what discipline is"
So his actions are not inherently evil, just outmoded?
Back in July, I posted about a UK teacher at Blackburn mosque who used "torture positions" on pupils. The teacher admitted using beatings and torture positions as "a form of discipline on four pupils." Irfan Patel, 33, pleaded guilty to four counts of cruelty to a person under the age of 16.
The UK dhimmi court system in action: No jail time for child torture at Blackburn Lancashire mosque. This is sharia in the West."Irfan Patel: Blackburn mosque torture teacher sentenced" BBC, September 7, 2012 *(thanks to Tom S)
A religious teacher at a Lancashire mosque who admitted using torture techniques on four children has been given a suspended sentence.
Irfan Patel, 33, of Pelham Street, Blackburn, pleaded guilty to four counts of cruelty to a person under the age of 16 at Preston Crown Court.
He was sentenced to 40 weeks in prison, suspended for 18 months. In sentencing,
Judge Robert Altham said Patel had an "outdated understanding of what discipline is".
Patel, who was trained as a madrassa teacher in India, admitted using stress positions in which pupils squatted for long periods as a punishment.
So that's all right, then?He also admitted beating pupils between January and October 2011.The court was told he had initially denied the offences and suggested his pupils were conspiring against him, before later confessing to the crime.Judge Altham said he had been responsible for "serious and persistent offending while in a position of trust" and that his conduct had been "wholly acceptable" (sic) .However, he said Patel had gained "no gratuitous satisfaction" from the punishments.
So he'll be given the chance to teach again?He added that he was "sure that with formal training", the 33-year-old would not offend again.
Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor, North West Area said Patel's actions had gone "far beyond what was acceptable in disciplining those in his care".
