UK mosques giving anti-grooming sermons in response to sex abuse cases
Some 500 UK mosques are planning sermons condemning the sexual abuse of children, following the sentencing of seven men of South Asian origin convicted of a series of crimes against underage girls.
The effort organized by the group Together Against Grooming means that the message was being delivered at Friday prayers at participating mosques.
The anti-grooming group wants imams to stress that the Quran rules out all forms of sexual abuse and that Muslims have a responsibility to protect children and other vulnerable people.
