(UK) Abrahim Ghait is something of a celebrity amongst Muslims. In fact so much of a superstar is Abraahim that the UK Arabic Society invited him over to the Uk from his native Libya so he could preach at a number of mosques during Ramadan. The problem for the UK Arabic Society was that Mr Ghait was arrested for flashing his nether regions to women and little girls during Ramadan and for doing so, he was jailed for 6 weeks.
Well instead of admitting that inviting Mr Ghait may have been a big mistake. The UK Arabic Society is playing the victim card by saying that;
“There was no way the imam would have committed the acts, and that it would destroy his future and reputation.and believed Ghait had only pleaded guilty in the hope that he would get a non-custodial sentence, which would have allowed him to go home to Libya where he had urgent business.”
His defence came out with:
Ghait had been through a huge culture shock in coming to the UK, and that he was from a very isolated background in the Libyan desert and didn’t really know much about the world and that he had extremely bad piles and was due to have surgery at home.
What is with religious people presuming that a so called holy-man cannot be found guilty of human desires and vices. Which may explain why Mr El Haddad (head of the UK Arabic society )finished off bitching by saying:
“The situation is unacceptable and I don’t believe he did it.He only pleaded guilty because he wasn’t expecting to go to prison, and because of the pressure on him to go back home quickly.There is no way that he would have done something like this. Do you think that a leader of a church would harm its community? It was a park, in the middle of the town, in the middle of the day.He was here leading people in prayer, it was in Ramadan when he was fasting, and he is not supposed to even look at a woman.He is a world-famous imam of a mosque in Libya and has spent 15 years learning the Koran .It is destroying the future of a key person. It is crazy, and I just can’t believe it.”
