A 21-year-old Muslim refugee who raped a 10-year-old boy in Sydney tried to justify his actions on Wednesday by saying that it is “culturally acceptable” in his home country.
According to reports, the Mufiz Rahaman raped the boy and said he didn’t know he was sexually assaulting the child because child rape is normal back home.
Rahaman comes from Myanmar, which he says is a country that accepts raping children as normal.
The Daily Mail reports:
The 20-year-old and his young victim are both stateless Rohingya Muslims – a group of people considered illegal immigrants from Bangladesh by the Buddhist-majority in Myanmar – who came to Australia to flee religious persecution.
The court heard Rahaman preyed on the young boy while he was living with a group of refugees, including his father, at a vacant RSL club in Lakemba, a suburb in Sydney’s south west, on January 8, 2015.
This is beyond disturbing. What kind of sicko thinks it is acceptable to rape a child and what country accepts this kind of behavior as normal? Clearly a religion that condones child rape isn’t one that is worth following.
