Two Islamic teachers sentenced over child abuse

Two Islamic school teachers in the UK who beat a 10-year-old pupil have each been jailed for a year.

Mohammed Siddique, aged 60, and his 24-year-old son Mohammed Waqar(both pictured) were sentenced at Birmingham Crown Court on Thursday after admitting wilful cruelty to the boy during lessons, dailymail.co.uk reports.

The website reported that their victim was beaten with a plastic stick and given back-handed slaps by each of his tutors for ‘talking in the classroom’ or not doing his work at Sparkbrook Islamic centre, attached to the Jamia Mosque, in Anderton Road, Birmingham.

‘In all you’re responsible for four separate assaults on him.

‘These assaults would follow on from him talking in class or failing to read the Koran accurately.

‘These assaults were committed by you in breach of a significant degree of trust placed in you by his parents and those who run the school,’ the judge said while delivering his judgment.
