Teacher jailed for mosque assaults
Wednesday 23 November 2011
A religious teacher who was caught on a secret camera kicking and slapping children in a mosque was jailed for 10 weeks today.
Sabir Hussain, 60, admitted four charges of assaulting boys at the Markazi Jamia Mosque, in. Keighley, West Yorkshire, as they learned The Koran.
He was arrested after secret filming was screened on a Channel 4 documentary earlier this year.
The assaults Hussain admitted happened on December 7 and December 13 last year, and involved four different boys.
Hussain, of Spencer Street, Keighley, appeared at Bradford Magistrates Court in traditional clothing and was led out of court in handcuffs after the sentence was passed.
He immediately lodged an appeal against his sentence but an application for bail was rejected.
