Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse in Religious Settings

The Independent Inquiry into child sexual abuse requested evidence from Muslim Women's Network UK regarding their inquiry into child protection matters in religious organisations and settings. 

Muslim Women's Network UK main concerns are that child sexual abuse can take place in a range of religious settings but not all such settings are in fact regulated. Even outside of religious organisations and settings, abusers are nevertheless using religious texts (or misinterpretations of the same) to manipulate and coerce their victims.There is in our opinion a lack of understanding or ignorance of prevalence of child sexual abuse in religious settings.

Muslim Women's Network UK full response to this inquiry can be downloaded above.
