From THE INDEPENDENT:
Thousands of Muslim schoolchildren are being physically and sexually abused by their religious teachers every year, according to a report into the Islamic education system in this country.
The potential scale of the abuse has led to fears among Muslim leaders that Britain’s Mosque-based schools will face the kind of child abuse claims that has recently scandalised the Roman Catholic Church.
Up to 100,000 children are taught at 700 Islamic schools, or madrassas, of which almost a half use unlawful corporal punishment to discipline pupils.
