Spiritual healer, 68, 'rubbed holy oil on 19-year-old woman's stomach and raped her

  • Komar Uddin, 68, is accused of raping a 19-year-old girl at her Leicester home
  • The alleged victim's family invited Uddin to the house to drive out an evil spirit
  • An internal swab from the victim was found to contain Uddin's DNA
  • Uddin denies two counts of rape and sexual assault at Leicester Crown Court

A spiritual healer twice raped a young woman in her bedroom, under the guise of driving away an evil spirit, whilst her unsuspecting family were downstairs, a jury was told.
The sex attack allegedly took place during a religious candlelit ritual while prayers were being said.
Komar Uddin was said to have rubbed holy oil onto the 19-year-old's stomach and stroked her back and hips, before sexually touching and twice raping her, it was claimed at Leicester Crown Court.
The 68-year-old defendant, who was described in court as a priest and also a spiritual healer, was invited to help by the woman's father - who was concerned about his daughter's fear she was being followed by an evil spirit following the sudden death of a relative.
The alleged victim told the jury that during the private ritual at the family's Leicester home, Uddin also announced she was pregnant and offered to help make the baby 'go away' for £200.
After his arrest two days later, the defendant was released on bail in early 2015 - but left the country.
He was extradited to the UK from Germany last November, the jury was told. Uddin, of no fixed address, denies sexual assault, assault by penetration, causing a female to engage in sexual activity and two counts of rape, on February 25, 2015.

Giving evidence, the woman, said she initially thought it was part of the 'ritual' to drive away an evil or bad spirit.

She said Uddin's voice became 'scary' changing to 'harsh and deep' during the treatment and she thought it was an evil spirit inside him talking, saying hello in Urdu.

He allegedly asked her to apply oil to her private parts, after stroking her stomach and back.
She claimed he pulled down her lower clothing and commenced sexual activity before having intercourse with her.

The complainant told the jury she was too scared about the spirits, or to object, and was unsure if it was part of the treatment.

She alleged Uddin told her afterwards not to tell anyone or the 'treatment' would not work.
When he left she was distressed and crying, before telling her family.

An internal swab from the teenager was found to have Uddin's DNA on, said Mr Thatcher.
In interview at the time, the defendant claimed nothing sexual happened and when the officers asked if any DNA would be found, he replied 'God willing' there would not be any.

During the alleged victim's cross-examination, defence counsel, James McLernon, suggested she was lying and claimed she had offered to have sex with Uddin.

Mr McLernon claimed she instigated matters by putting the defendant's hand on her private parts, but he had pushed her hand away and refused, saying she was the same age as his grandchildren.

The woman, who gave evidence from behind a screen, disagreed adding: 'No he didn't say that.'

Mr McLernon said: 'He did not at any stage expose himself?'

The woman replied: 'Yes he did.'

Richard Thatcher, prosecuting, earlier told the jury: 'Amongst those who accepted and trusted him as a priest were the complainant and her family.

'He was more than simply a priest to them, their belief system included a belief in the spirit world and the belief a person can be taken over by an evil spirit.

'A priest, such as the defendant, it's thought can drive out that spirit.'

Mr Thatcher told the jury: 'Whatever your own views on such matters the prosecution say the defendant took advantage of those genuinely held beliefs to gain access to the complainant who, by common agreement of her family, was a fragile individual.'

Mr Thatcher said: 'Preying on that belief, convincing her that he was to deal with an evil spirit, the prosecution say, the defendant attacked and raped her in her bedroom at her family home.

'He did that whilst the rest of the household was downstairs, such was the respect that he commanded from the father and the rest of the family.

'They wouldn't have questioned him.'

The court heard how the trusting father had helped in the preparation of the bedroom, by fetching candles and incense, for the 'treatment' that would deal with the evil spirit.

The defendant allegedly summoned the father into the bedroom on several occasions during and after the ritual, when his daughter was clothed, and she had not complained.

Mr Thatcher said: 'In reality Uddin knew he wouldn't get away with this; from the moment he left that house, leaving the complainant in a visibly distressed state, he never returned - despite having suggested it was one of three days of treatment.

The trial continues.

The Police Are Threatening Me

Now, I am aware that there are laws that are being used to override the freedoms we are supposed to enjoy from the European Convention on Human Rights and also from the protection given in the Raical and Religious Hatred Act of 2006.

Of course this is the case or we wouldn't be seeing people being prosecuted for "hate crime" etc.

However, I was simply pointing out these laws to remind Michelle that we are supposed to have these freedoms and they are legislated for all to see in black and white.

The politicians and police are manipulating the law and behaving like fascists.

'New powers for police and MI5' after London and Manchester attacks

THE POLICE and MI5 ware set to be handed new powers which will enable them to stop terror attacks at an earlier stage, according to reports.


Mourners gather at the Manchester Arena
In a bid to protect the public, officers will reportedly be able to swoop in and fast-track terror suspects to justice before attack plans are finalised.
Documents leaked to The Sunday Times reveal security services will be able to disrupt terror plots at at earlier stage after atrocities in Manchester, at London Bridge and Westminster claimed the lives of 35 people last year.
Of the five extremists involved in the attacks, three of them were among a whopping 23,000 on the radar of security services.
The plan in a 120-page draft of the Government’s counterterrorism strategy calls for more focus on “communities where the threat from terrorism and radicalisation is highest”.
Authorities have come under fire for targeting young Muslims at risk of extremism through the Prevent strategy, but the new approach will result in "more than double the number" of young radicals over the next year.
The bill also demands Home Secretary Amber Rudd let spies warn government departments about jihadis before being deemed dangerous enough to warrant MI5 to step in, introduce longer prison sentences for convicted extremists, beef up security at concerts like Ariana Grande’s gig that was last May hijacked by a suicide bomber who killed 23.
It also instructs Ms Rudd to improve the detection of chemical, biological and radiological agents in the wake of the Salisbury novichok attempted murder of Sergei Skripal, 66, and 33-year-old daughter Yulia, found slumped on a park bench after the poison was smeared on Mr Skripal’s front door handle.
Disturbingly, the paper warns ISIS “still represents the most significant” threat as well as al-Qaeda, the IRA and far-right extremists.
The paper also vowed: “We will disrupt terrorist threats in the UK earlier to take account of the scale of the threat and the speed at which plots are now developing.”
MI5 were blasted for misinterpreting two pieces of “highly relevant” intelligence about Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Abedi before he struck.
According to the paper, Westminster attacker Khalid Masood, who murdered five people, was a “peripheral figure” in a 2010 MI5 investigation.
Only Khuram Butt, one of three London Bridge killers who mowed down eight people in the capital, had been under investigation by MI5 at the timer.
Shockingly, he escaped - despite being featured in Channel 4 documentary The Jihadis Next Door.

Halal slaughtermen who chanted and performed a dance as they butchered sheep in a British abattoir are spared jail

  • Slaughtermen chanted and performed dances as they hacked at live sheep
  • Kabeer Hussain, 44, and Kazam Hussein, 55 were filmed taunting the animals
  • They waved knives in front of them and shouted at them, a court heard
  • Hussain and Hussein received suspended prison sentences yesterday at Leeds Magistrates’ Court for causing unnecessary suffering to animals
Kabeer Hussain, 44, arrives at Leeds Magistrates Court after being sentenced for his part in the distress caused to sheep at a slaughterhouse
Kabeer Hussain, 44, arrives at Leeds Magistrates Court after being sentenced for his part in the distress caused to sheep at a slaughterhouse
Cruel halal slaughtermen chanted and performed a dance as they hacked at the throats of sheep.
The still conscious animals were strung up alive as they bled out at the abattoir, near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, a court heard.
Kabeer Hussain, 44, and Kazam Hussein, 55, were filmed taunting animals, waving knives in front of them and shouting at them.
Some sheep could be seen slipping and staggering away from the duo as blood poured from their necks. The shocking undercover footage of workers ‘hacking and sawing’ at animals’ throats, filmed inside Bowood Farms abattoir by the charity Animal Aid, provoked a public outcry. 
This week legislation, expected to come into force in May, was put before the Commons that will force all abattoirs to install CCTV.
Hussain and Hussein received suspended prison sentences yesterday at Leeds Magistrates’ Court for causing unnecessary suffering to animals.
Prosecutor Howard Shaw said abattoir boss William Woodward ‘simply turned a blind eye to the animals’ welfare at his slaughterhouse’.
All abattoirs must be approved by the Food Standards Agency, but the regulatory body does not check whether halal meat is prepared according to religious rules. 

Many certify themselves as adhering to halal standards, which state that animals must be killed with a single sweep of a surgically-sharp knife while a Muslim recites a prayer. 

Kabeer HussainKazam Hussain

The sheep must be humanely restrained and not moved for 20 seconds giving them time to lose consciousness. But footage showed sheep being hacked at multiple times before being strung up by their hind legs.

Woodward, from Daventry, Northamptonshire, was sentenced to 20 weeks in jail.
Hussain, of Bradford, admitted causing suffering and was sentenced to 16 weeks in jail, suspended for a year.

Hussein, also of Bradford, admitted causing unnecessary suffering and was sentenced to 18 weeks suspended for a year.

Man converts to Islam, starts distributing material calling for jihad, had handbook for poisoning unbelievers

Yet another convert to Islam gets the idea that his new religion calls him to commit treason and mass murder. Where did he learn Islam? Are British authorities going to investigate that? Or would doing so be “Islamophobic”?
“Owner of terrorist handbooks jailed for nearly four years,” BT.com, April 18, 2018:
Adam Wyatt, 48, of Bridgewater Street in Salford, was sentenced at Manchester Crown Court on Wednesday after pleading guilty to owning and sharing terrorist material, Greater Manchester Police said.
He previously admitted disseminating a terrorist publication which said “Britain must atone for its sins in Palestine” and posting on social media that jihad was an obligation for Muslims.
He admitted owning booklets, including one called the Mujahedeen Poisons Handbook.
A judge ruled Wyatt’s actions were intentional rather than reckless….
Detective Inspector Mike Abbott, from Counter Terrorism Policing North West, said: “…He will now spend the next three years and nine months in prison where he can no longer poison minds and encourage people to kill for his cause.”

mosque got $350,000 from al-Qaeda-supporting Muslim cleric

“Exeter Mosque denies links to extremism after receiving donations from radical cleric,” by John Bett and Alex Richards, DevonLive, April 20, 2018 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Exeter Mosque is being asked to reveal details of donations from a radical cleric, with fears it has benefited from terrorism-related activity.
Sheikh Sadiq Al-Ghariani – who has been expelled from the UK over his hard-line views – is known to have donated an undisclosed sum of money to Exeter Mosque.
But videos later emerged of the controversial Sheikh allegedly expressing support for al-Qaeda aligned militia groups in Libya.
Now, a group representing the Muslim community in Exeter, has launched a plea to find out exactly how much money was donated by Al-Ghariani amid fears the mosque on York Road could have benefited from terrorist-related activities..
A petition, put online by members of the community, claims the donations from Mr Ghariani came to a total of almost £250,000.
And Tallha Abdulrazaq, the son of a former trustee of the Exeter Mosque, says the scale of support was laid bare when Mr Gharini’s first donation of £50,000 was presented in cash at a meeting of the trustees.
He said: “If he is linked to these extremist groups, and there’s a lot of evidence that suggests that he is, do we really want to be taking his money and being associated with him? No.
“We do not want him in our community. The cash just appeared and was put on the table as £50,000 in cash, which obviously started suspicions.”
In 2015, the same year the cleric was reportedly making donations to the mosque in Exeter, he can be seen allegedly praising the violence of jihadi fighters in Libya.
In one video he says: “Those of them who die, are dying for the sake of God.”
Trustees of the mosque said they “do not have any links to any form of extremism” and claimed they were not aware of Mr Ghariani’s activities in Libya.
But the spotlight has now fallen on Shaheed Ul Hassan, who has been a trustee of Exeter’s Mosque since it was set up in the 1970s.
He is said to be the one who brought the £50,000 to the mosque but has declined requests for an interview.
However, at a meeting at the mosque, he and the other trustees confirmed they had received money from Mr Ghariani, but would not say how much…

ISIS beheaders live among us while we deport Caribbean grannies

The  presenter ripped into the Windrush generation scandal which has seen citizens who have lived and worked in the UK for the majority of their lives at risk of deportation.
Thousands of landing card slips recording the arrival of Windrush-era immigrants were destroyed by the Home Office and now having never applied for British citizenship or passports, members of the Windrush generation are now struggling to prove they are here legally.
Recent restrictions in immigration law require people to have paperwork proof of near-continuous residence in the UK.
Speaking on the BBC’s This Week, host Andrew Neil said: “Just when you think British politics can’t get any more depressing, along comes revelations of our treatment of the Windrush generation.
Andrew Neil and ISIS
Andrew Neil delivered a passionate rant amid the Windrush generation scandal
“A scandal so contemptible, that it doesn’t just demean the Government that presided over it, but shames all of us who have allowed it to happen.
“It suddenly dawns on you that our country is letting in ISIS beheaders and torturers and enslavers to return to live among us because the goings got a bit tough for the poor dears in Syria.
“But it is prepared to contemplate the deportation of Caribbean grannies who have lived and worked here all their adult lives.”
The passionate monologue comes after it emerged that some children of the Caribbean migrants who settled in the UK from the late 1940s to the 1970s had been declared illegal immigrants and threatened with deportation.

'Controlling' husband who suffocated his wife and drowned their two children before sitting down to eat and watch television is jailed for life

  • A controlling husband who murdered his wife and two children has been jailed 
  • Sami Salem, 30, murdered Arena Saeed, 30, daughter Shadia, 7, and son Rami, 4
  • A court heard he suffocated his wife and drowned his two children in the bath 
  • Salem, 30, sentenced to minimum of 31 years in prison at Liverpool Crown Court
Sami Salem, 30, had claimed diminished responsibility for the killings but was found guilty of murdering wife Arena Saeed, 30, daughter Shadia, seven, and son Rami, four, following a trial at Liverpool Crown Court
Sami Salem, 30, had claimed diminished responsibility for the killings but was found guilty of murdering wife Arena Saeed, 30, daughter Shadia, seven, and son Rami, four, following a trial at Liverpool Crown Court
A 'controlling' husband, who suffocated his wife and drowned his two children, sat down and ate dinner in front of the television following the heinous murder. 
Sami Salem, 30, had claimed diminished responsibility for the killings but was found guilty of murdering wife Arena Saeed, 30, daughter Shadia, seven, and son Rami, four, following a trial at Liverpool Crown Court.
He was sentenced to a minimum of 31 years in prison today. 
Salem is said to have held his hand over his wife's mouth and drowned his two young children in the bath, before dousing their flat in petrol and taking an overdose. 
Residents were forced to evacuate their homes on May 30 last year after engineers were called following reports of the smell of petrol and gas.
When relatives gained access to the family's home they found the three victims lying on the bed, with Salem almost unconscious at the foot of the bed.
The property was home to a flat owned by Beatles manager Brian Epstein in the 1960s, where Lennon and his first wife Cynthia lived shortly after they married.
At his sentencing hearing on Friday, the court heard Salem, who was surrounded in the dock by four workers from high security psychiatric hospital Ashworth, was a paranoid schizophrenic.

A jury has been told Salem had reported seeing a 'black entity' and 'tall chimpanzees' due to his mental illness. 
Mr Justice Holgate said there was evidence he was controlling and possessive towards his wife, who he married in Yemen in 2009.
Mrs Saeed was said to have asked for a divorce earlier in May last year.
The judge said: 'He sought to control her movements outside the flat and whom she met.
'He controlled her access to the internet and use of a mobile phone. This affected her ability to communicate with her family in the Yemen.
'She spoke little or no English, the family were not part of the Yemeni community in Liverpool and she must have felt isolated.'

The court heard Salem began to experience hallucinations and paranoid beliefs towards the end of 2016.

He saw a doctor in the week before the murders but was thought to have responded to medication.

Benjamin Myers QC, defending, said: 'This is not a murder, or murders, that takes place against a background of someone who had conventional clarity of view.'

Salem, wearing a black suit and tie with a white shirt, showed no reaction as he was sentenced to life imprisonment.

He told doctors he ate food and watched television after killing his wife and children before going to a petrol station and buying 25 litres of petrol, which he spread around the flat and over the legs of the children.

He took an overdose of medication he had been prescribed and when emergency services arrived at the property at 7.30pm they found the switches on the gas cooker had been taped so they remained open.

After the killings, Salem said he had not heard voices or experienced hallucinations at the time but described feeling 'something weird'.

Forensic psychiatrist Dr Mohammad Rahman told Liverpool Crown Court that he believes Salem was suffering from schizophrenia at the time of the killings.

In a report, Dr Rahman stated: '(Salem) heard voices saying don't go into his house because something bad was going to happen. He heard voices instructing him to hurt people.

'He says one time when he was driving it said, "don't push the brakes, you can do this" which he managed to resist.'

Salem told Dr Rahman he had never been in love with his wife but denied claims he banned her from using her mobile phone or travelling.' 

The court heard the family of Mrs Saeed said she was 'known for her kindness'.
Mr Justice Holgate said: 'She is described as 'a pioneer in doing good for all' and an ideal mother.

Her two children were loved by everyone who knew them.

The family is heartbroken and has suffered enormously.'

Rotherham Council ordered to apologize to whistleblower they persecuted for exposing Muslim rape gangs

Rotherham Council has been ordered to apologise to a whistleblower who helped expose the mass exploitation of underage white girls by mostly Muslim men.
Jayne Senior, who has worked with grooming victims since 1999 and was made a Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2016 for services to child protection, helped to blow the lid off a long-running grooming gang scandal in the town.
She revealed how council officials, social services, and police — paralysed by fears of racism accusations — failed to act while at least 1,400 girls were abused.
But just months after she received her award and published her memoirs, Broken and Betrayed, the council orchestrated a raid on the charity she runs, Swinton Lock, as part of an investigation which has now been slammed by the local government ombudsman.
The ombudsman has ordered Rotherham Council to apologise to Senior for continuously misleading her about the investigation’s progress, and keeping her in the dark about its details.
“I’m appalled it’s taken so long. It’s crazy how ill-informed [Senior] has been through the process,” commented Sarah Champion, the Member of Parliament for Rotherham.
The left-wing MP was herself forced to resign from Labour’s shadow government after admitting that “Britain has a problem with British Pakistani men raping and exploiting white girls” which the authorities are afraid to confront.
“In the five years I have been an MP I have never come across something like this affecting a constituent, let alone a councillor and a well-known whistleblower,” she added.
“You would think that the council would be trying to do everything in a timely manner. In fact, the opposite has happened.”…

Airport baggage handler Mohammad Ali jailed over Brazil drug smuggling conspiracy

A CORRUPT baggage handler who was part of a criminal conspiracy to smuggle at least £16 million worth of drugs through Heathrow Airport has been jailed for 15 years.
Mohammad Ali, 41, of Spackmans Way, Slough, assisted colleague Joysen Jhurry, 41, to move suitcases containing the drugs off planes and into the carousels for domestic flights. The bags would then be collected by couriers arriving on internal flights from UK airports who could exit Heathrow’s domestic arrivals – without going through customs controls.
Ali was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment at Southwark Crown Court on Tuesday after being found guilty of conspiracy to import cocaine. In total the criminal gang was sentenced to over 139 years in prison and over 100 kilos of cocaine and 44 kilos of cannabis were seized by officers.
National Crime Agency (NCA) regional head of investigations Brendan Foreman said: “This was a sophisticated plot and at the centre of it was a man who used his privileged access to Heathrow and insider knowledge of the airport’s systems for criminal purposes.
“This kind of corruption threatens the security of the UK border and the public at large which is why the NCA and its partners are tackling it as a priority.”
“Border Force, Airport authorities and the airline community were vital in helping us to stop this organised crime group in its tracks and pull together the evidence which lead to them being sentenced to significant jail time today.”
The conspiracy was brought to an end in December 2016 following an 18 month investigation led by the NCA, with support from Border Force and Heathrow Airport. Around the time of each flight, Jhurry was in phone contact with his right-hand man Preetam Mungrah, 44, who acted as the intermediary between him and the organisers. In charge of the drug importations and onward distribution was Damion Goodhall, 30, Wilfred Owusu, 31, Mark Agoro, 52, and Michael Sutherland, 48, who organised for cocaine to be flown in from Brazil on at least six separate occasions.
Members of the group were also filmed by NCA officers meeting on numerous occasions, either at each other’s houses or in public places. Eight of them were arrested in dawn raids across London on December 14.
