Muslim pervert escapes a custodial sentence

Muslim pervert escapes a custodial sentence

SULEMAN Maknojioa, 40, of Blackburn in Lancashire, has six children, a wife who barely speaks English, is dependent on state handouts … oh, and he also has dodgy kidneys.

Combined, these factors earned him leniency when he appeared this week before Judge Michael Byrne at Preston Crown Court, where he was convicted on five counts of sexually molesting an 11-year-old girl.

The pervert was giving the child and her two brothers private religious tuition at their home.

Instead of being jailed, he escaped with a 40-week suspended sentence. The judge said:

I bear in mind your own family circumstances. I accept you are a very good father to your six children, your wife speaks little English and administration falls upon you. 

I bear in mind that social services conducted their own assessment and found that you do not pose a risk. You are now unemployed living on state benefits. 

I have come to the conclusion that this repeated offending from a person in a position of trust merits a term of imprisonment that crosses the custodial threshold. 

But I’m satisfied that the sentence of imprisonment in this case for the reasons I have referred to may be suspended.

Maknojioa will be under supervision for two years and made subject of a Sexual Offences Prevention Order for 10 years. In addition he was added to an “adult barring list” for seven years.

Maknojioa repeatedly rubbed the 11-year-old youngster’s leg and even reached underneath the long folds of her prayer headscarf to squeeze her chest whilst giving her and her two brothers private tuition in Arabic.

He was reported to police after the children’s mother overheard her two sons aged 13 and seven talking about the incidents in their kitchen.

On the day he was arrested, Maknojioa was due to teach 30 children at a mosque near his home in Blackburn, Lancs.

Meanwhile, it is reported here that Rebekah Dawson, 22, of Hackney, east London, who was recently jailed for 20 months for disseminating Internet videos glorifying the death of Fusilier Lee Rigby, has received an additional six-month jail sentence for witness intimidation.

She was allowed to wear a veil throughout the proceedings.

During the trial a police officer, who had been present when Dawson had her photograph taken after she was arrested, had to repeatedly go into a private room with the defendant to verify her identity.

The female officer then had to go into the witness box under oath and confirm that the woman under the veil was Dawson.

    So he gets away with peadophilia simply because he’s kept his wife at home and not let her learn English? That’s what it boils down to, because of his faith he’s never wanted his wife to integrate and learn the local language and now it’s turned up trumps for him, he gets to avoid going to jail (which is where he should be).

    I wonder how his victim feels about that?

  2. AgentCormac says:

    I just don’t get it. Maknojioa is a paedophile, a pervert and a menace who should go to jail for a very long time, yet he gets to walk. Perhaps if the Judge had made an example of him instead, then others like him might consider the needs of their family before satisfying their own immoral and illegal needs. This sends out all the wrong messages.

  3. barriejohn says:

    I was surprised that the case wasn’t thrown out on the basis that, being a Muslim, he wouldn’t know that what he was doing was wrong!

  4. barriejohn says:

    Just a mo…if they DO realize that what they did was wrong the religious still go free:

    There must be some logic there somewhere, though I can’t see it as yet.

  5. Broga says:

    If that piece of shite did that to my daughter or grand daughter I think I would be tempted beyond being able to help myself to sort the matter out for myself.

  6. David Anderson says:

    Broga; Then you would be the one to go to prison for a “hate crime”. What a fucked up world this is becoming.

  7. oldmanjenkins38 says:

    That garb shite is not part of the koran. It is an interpretation of the hadith. If they want to wear that crap, they can wear it in their house or place of worship. There is no need to see bee keepers running around. It will scare us individuals who are allergic to bees into thinking there be a swarm out and about!

  8. Jobrag says:

    Hm I hope social services are keeping a good eye on his kids.

  9. This is simply not acceptable. I noticed this story in The Times today and was simply disgusted.

    Out of interest does anyone know the punishment for this crime in Islam or would they have punished the victim?

    There must be one law for all regardless of religion. His wifes “dependency” on him could be resolved quite easily. Teach her English and outline her rights under our laws.

    Anyone else would have quite rightly gone to prison.

    Howard Fuller, there are few standards in sharia, it depends which nutter is dishing it out. However, I read a couple of years ago (will try to find the link) that in cases of men messing with young boys, the man could face execution but if the judge thinks the boy enjoyed any of it he will be flogged.

    Why am I not surprised by this, especially from a caring culture that thinks flogging rape victims is a good idea.

    OK, this IS extremely disgusting, to say the least. I am trying to keep my language polite, just because it would be all too easy for me to revert to Marine Corps boot camp language to describe my disgust with this “sentence”. And yet, at the same time, it is NOT that surprising at all. How many times have religious asshats been let off with light or no punishment for their vile crimes? Far too many according to reality. Play the old religion card when caught and make sure the judge is frightened enough of religious backlash and you get off scot free it seems. What a world this is becoming, unfit for decent human beings, or damn close.
    Broga, you bet, had the child in question been a member of my extended family he would have had zero need to appear in any court. He’d have been dead before the police even got involved.

  12. John the Drunkard says:

    Note that the law was called in only after the BOYS reported the perverts behavior. Of course there are only TWO of them so I suppose he would get a pass from a sharia court.

  13. Broga says:

    I wonder just how out of touch judges have become. They don’t know what it is like to live on a run down housing estate, they don’t spend time with the plebs in the pubs, they have special transport and special lodgings, they earn silly money (I’ll come back to that), they are the products of expensive private schools, they are bewigged and robed and they sit on high being treated with reverence.

    From my contact with my pleb friends, same darts team apart from other things, their opinions about men who sexually abuse children vary between meting out violence and meting out extreme violence. They identify on the basis of “If he did it to my kid …….” Paedophiles in prison do not have a happy time.

    I think there has to be judicial detachment in sentencing but this kind of case makes you wonder whether justice is out of touch. And is there an element of undue respect in the courts for the claims of defendants to be religious.

    On the money question one of my darts playing mates, a sheet metal worker, defined the wages people earned as: good money; serious money; big money and silly money. I think he would place judges in the last category.

    OT – some disturbing news from the BHA which claims to have found evidence of 17 creationist, Charedi, Steiner and Muslim (with past allegations of links to extremist groups) nurseries that are in receipt of state funding. Yes, these are the places where parents leave their very young children in the care of others. In these cases, others who are using our tax-payers’ money to indoctrinate the children in their charge with nutjob dogma.

  15. No surprise ..another godly child raper says:

    Does this really surprise anyone. It’s just another case of another bigoted faith head huckster not doing what he preaches. There are thousands of them out there, probably hundreds of thousands of them out there. Outwardly pious and god fearing but inwardly perverted predatory depraved exploitative and evil. We have assumed that the burden of celibacy is the reason why catholic priests are temped into child abuse. But this case shows us that even when the pious have access to women, who dare not refuse sex simply because they would suffer physical violence, their perversion can still lead them to raping children. This is only to be expected of those who hide behind the camouflage and privilege of their position. Dare I hope that those of his ilk will shriek and wail in fits of maddened hysteria, take the law into their own hands and thrash him publicly with electrical cable, or deprive him of a few appendages, or stone him to death, or unleash a Kalashnikov into the back of his bagged head. I think not. I will be disappointed. He will be spared and the victims punished instead. His poor wife will probably get a savage beating for the crime of not satisfying the evil bastard’s libido at home. What fools we are for letting this pernicious evil go unchallenged. We are even sponsoring it with our hard earned taxes. Once again the rational industrious decent folk carry the burden of excremental freeloading shithead charlatans. Religion is the poison befouls everything.

    I hope justice catches up with this turd,if not by the legal syatem, then from elsewhere.

    Not exactly Suleman the Magnificent, is he?

  18. 1859 says:

    @ barriejohn: I don’t know…that Mail link of yours is a bit creepy – on the one hand it screams ‘pervert’ at this Suleman guy, even describing his ‘rubbing’ and ‘fondling’ etc., and then, in the celeb pics at the side, it displays Lady Gaga showing ‘some skin’ with her arse stuck in the air – visually announcing ‘come and fuck me!’ And it doesn’t take a little more scrolling to find plenty of female flesh on the same page. I know paedophilia is wholly different from adults viewing porn, but still it disturbs me to pillory a man for sexual crimes against children and yet on the same page show half-naked women in overt sexual poses…I dunno, maybe it’s me, maybe my balls have dried up too soon…
