Muslims warned of 'major challenge'
A sermon shared with congregations in around 500 UK mosques has warned that a "major challenge" will be created for the Muslim community in the wake of the sentencing of a paedophile ring made up of seven Asian men and the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich.
Titled "Tackling Street Grooming in the UK" the sermon, which is part of a campaign organised by Together Against Grooming (Tag), a not-for-profit cross-community organisation set up to tackle street grooming by gangs, highlights the responsibilities of Muslims to "shun evil, wrongdoing and all forms of indecent and immoral behaviour" as taught by the Koran.
It says that recent publicity emerging from cases of sexual grooming involving mainly men of Pakistani/South Asian background in various locations around the UK, as well as the brutal murder of Drummer Lee Rigby in London, could have a negative impact on Muslims.
