Ramadan used as defence by cabbie groper
by David Barrett
A disgraced Muslim taxi driver tried to use the holy time of Ramadan as his defence against allegations he repeatedly grabbed the breast of a disabled female passenger.
Abdul Majid Qazizada, 51, had argued that Ramadan was a time when Muslim men "don't even touch their wives".
He was yesterday found guilty of the aggravated indecent assault of a 23-year-old woman who suffers cerebral palsy and epilepsy.
Magistrate Jennifer Betts said Qazizada claimed he was a devout Muslim who was fasting when the attack occurred in September last year.
