Campaign group shows support to victims of grooming

Campaign group Tackle Against Grooming has issued a statement ahead of delivering sermons to hundreds of thousands of Muslims today, condemning street grooming by gangs.

In the statement by Tag:

We wish to show our support for the victims (madhloom) of this terrible crime, many of whom are innocent children and we wish to affirm that Islam as a religion of mercy and compassion places a strong obligation on safeguarding and protecting the weak and vulnerable from oppression (dhulm) and abuse particularly of women and children.

We must work towards preventing such actions from occurring in the future as this action is reprehensible and forbidden according to the teachings of Islam.
