'Imams promote grooming rings', Muslim leader claims (telegraph, May 16, 2013)
"Dr Taj Hargey, imam of the Oxford Islamic Congregation, said race and religion were inextricably linked to the recent spate of grooming rings in which Muslim men have targeted under-age white girls ... The activities of the Oxford sex ring are "bound up with religion and race" because all the men - though of different nationalities - were Muslim and they "deliberately targeted vulnerable white girls, whom they appeared to regard as 'easy meat', to use one of their revealing, racist phrases" ... That attitude has been promoted by religious leaders ... "On one level, most imams in the UK are simply using their puritanical sermons to promote the wearing of the hijab ... the burka among their female adherents. But the dire result can be the brutish misogyny we see in the Oxford sex ring.""
