hiding thebreakthroughorgOver the past few years, English courts have convicted Muslim gangs luring vulnerable girls into sex slavery with drink and drugs.

Previous cases concerned Rochdale, Derby and Telford. All involved Muslim men and white girls. The latest case to be tried involved a group of men from Oxford.

The case was heard at the Old Bailey. The Guardian reported (May 14, 2013, emphases mine below):

Seven men were found guilty of a total of 43 charges relating to six victims. The gang included two sets of brothers, Akhtar Dogar, 32, and Anjum Dogar, 31, and Bassam Karrar, 33, and Mohammed Karrar, 38. The other men were Kamar Jamil, 27, Zeeshan Ahmed, 27 and Assad Hussain, 32. All lived in Oxford.

Mohammed Hussain, 25, who was cleared of three counts of sexual activity with a child, had insisted he thought the girl was over 16. A ninth defendant, who cannot be named, was cleared of a similar charge.

Ahmed had to be removed from the dock by security staff after he punched one of the acquitted men

All of the girls — 50 in total — were in ‘care’ under the local authority. They came from one private care home. Staff and managers in those homes are supposed to protect their charges. Yet, the ‘grooming’ of girls by this group of men had been going on since 2004 — nearly ten years. It was only investigated in 2010, thanks to a proactive detective, Simon Morton. Testimony revealed that social services were aware of the goings-on as were Thames Valley Police.

Girl A, 14 at the time, attempted to escape the evil. She took a taxi back to her care home but had no money for the fare. The manager of the home refused to pay the driver, who drove the girl back into Oxford and, inevitably, to the gang.

If I had been the driver, I would have swallowed the fare and left her at the home. The manager, incidentally, has since been fired.

One can only imagine the trauma these girls have been through physically and psychologically. There is also a sociological element here, an inconvenient truth. How will these young women handle the rest of their lives coming into contact with Muslim-dominated occupations — minicab drivers, convenience store staff and post office employees?

The Guardian has been told by one victim, known as Girl C, in an interview after she gave her evidence, that the men exclusively wanted white girls to abuse.

Girl D described how she was branded by her abuser, Mohammed Karrar, and sold to other men for £600 an hour. Over five years she was repeatedly raped by groups of men in what she described as “torture sex”.

Kudos to the detective who took the time and the care to break this ring of abuse. I would be interested to know how much opposition he met with. No doubt there would have been political correctness on the one hand and aspersions cast on the girls.

The Guardian describes how the case unfolded. It would make an excellent teleplay:

Simon Morton, then detective chief inspector, put the men under surveillance, traced their phones, pulled every social services record of missing girls in Oxford who he thought were victims and built the case against the gang meticulously.

He said: “All the girls are really pleased and proud that they have given evidence. What this was was an organised criminal gang who effectively owned these girls. They isolated them and turned them against everyone: adults, carers, loved ones, social services, the police. The girls were completely brainwashed.

“These men managed to hide their activities for a considerable time and it takes a different mindset to understand what was going on.

This was happening in Oxford – the city of dreaming spires. If it was happening there, the ramifications for all cities are huge.”

I’m awaiting future cases in Birmingham and London. Given our ‘turn a blind eye’ and ‘you cannot say anything’ society, it will be some time before these get investigated. It’s much easier to ignore such crime in the name of promoting diversity.

Unfortunately, life is not like a 1970s Coca-Cola commercial. Not everyone holds hands and wants to ‘teach the world to sing in perfect harmony’.

My prayers go out to these girls — future wives and mothers.

As for the gang, they have not yet been sentenced but Judge Peter Rook QC [Queen’s Counsel] said that long custodial sentences were ‘inevitable’. Let’s hope so.
