Mubarek Ali, a Muslim man convicted of leading a child sex gang in the UK, will be released from prison a whopping 17 years early, prompting outrage.
According to The Independent, Ali was first imprisoned in 2013 after he and his brother, Ahdel Ali, were found guilty of not only sexually abusing young girls themselves but also grooming and selling them into sex slavery.
Some of the girls victimized by the Alis were as young as 13.
Now, not even five years into his sentence, The Shropshire Star reports that Ali has been informed he will be a free man as soon as November of this year despite initially being sentenced to serve 22 years behind bars for his heinous actions.
This, unsurprisingly, does not sit well with a number of people – including British Member of Parliament Lucy Allan.
The Shropshire Star quotes Allan as stating in an open letter on the matter that Ali’s victims are “living in fear” in light of his pending premature release.
“What we see in this case is that one of the main perpetrators is being released into the community only five years after the trial,” Allan’s open letter reads.
“This is clearly of enormous concern to victims in this case, especially those who gave evidence in court.”
Further, Allan’s letter reads, “what is unacceptable [is] that in this case there was no attempt by the authorities to reach out these young women and prepare them for this wholly unexpected event. Worse still is the prospect that this person may be returned to Telford and naturally this has caused huge anxiety to victims.”
Also upset about Ali’s pending early release are 31,000 people who have signed a petition demanding he remain behind bars.
“Please sign to help to stop the early release of Mubarek Ali who was jailed for 22 years in 2012 with his brother Ahdel (who was jailed 18 years) for a raft of sexual offences including pimping out young girls many as young as 12 to workers at a curry house for £150 sex sessions,” the petition reads.
It adds, “Mubarak has served just 5 years for horrific rape and abuse, his victims have a ‘life sentence’ of horrific memories and anxiety.”
This is not the first time the British government has come under fire for its handling of a child sexploitation case involving Muslims.
During the infamous Rochdale sex scandal, British police officers and social workers turned a blind eye to rampant reports of abuse coming from children who identified Muslim men as the perpetrators.
Speaking with Katie Hopkins on LBC in May, one girl involved in such an incident stated, “I never once looked at my perpetrators for what race or religion they were. I simply looked at who they were and what they’d done.”
“But as soon as I said the names, I was made to feel as though I was racist and I was the one who had the problem.”
While the exact reasons for Mubarek Ali’s pending early release remain unclear, it’s quite obvious that Britain – and progressive countries in general – have real problems identifying the issues with Islam.
Many still seem to feel that Islam is really a warm and fuzzy religion of peace.
To that, The Activist Mommy says “religion of peace my baconbit!”
