Letter to Attorney General regarding Mr. Suleman Maknojioa
Earlier this week Mr. Suleman Maknojioa, the Quran teacher from Blackburn, was only given a 40-week suspended sentence at Preston Crown Court after being found guilty of sexually abusing an 11 year old girl.
Muslim Women's Network UK are outraged at this sentence because despite the bravery of the victim and her family to come forward and speak out, the pedophile is walking around freely and not being sent to prison.
We have therefore written a letter to the Attorney General requesting that the sentence is reviewed. A copy of the letter can be downloaded here. We also encourage others to email and write to the Attorney General at the contact details below:
