Muslims pray to condemn child abuse

Muslims in the South heard sermons today condemning people who groom and abuse children.

It follows Operation Bullfinch, an investigation into a paedophile gang in Oxford which targetted vulnerable girls - many in care, one as young as 11 - and abused them. Seven men were jailed, yesterday, for a total of 95 years.

Imams and other religious leaders addressed their congregations following Friday prayers to highlight the Koran's teachings against sexual indecency. They also called on communities of all faiths to work together to protect children.
