GROOMING OF TEENAGERS IS EVIL AND
UNACCEPTABLE TO ALL
Shafiq, Chief Executive of the Ramadhan Foundation comments:
yesterday of two ring leaders of a grooming gang sends a clear signal
that these crimes are unacceptable and those engaged in such crimes will
pay a heavy price.
I pay tribute to the
girls and their families who have been brave in giving evidence against
these evil men, they will now need all the support from the Authorities
to rebuild their lives.
I have been clear in
instigatating this debate that these are criminal matters and should be
seen in this way, no community or faith ever sanctions these evil crimes
and to suggest that this somehow engrained in the community is deeply
I urge all engaged in
this debate to do so with tolerance, honesty and above all based on
evidence and not prejudiced positions.
