Islamic Teacher who Abused a Minor Spared Jail on Bizarre Grounds

Girl Koran

An Islamic teacher, who repeatedly molested an 11-year-old girl while teaching her the Koran, has been spared jail sentence because his wife cannot communicate in English. Suleman Maknojioa, 40, allegedly rubbed the minor’s legs and reached under the folds of her prayer headscarf so he could touch her chest. Maknojioa’s sentence was initially suspended because the court heard that his family of six was solely dependent on his income, despite him having severe kidney problems.
