The devout Muslim Mohamed Jamal Miah almost certainly didn’t think that his lurid, unwelcome and terrifying advances were in any conflict with his devoutness in Islam, because his Islamic culture had already taught him that women who dressed like Western women and ventured out unaccompanied were whores, and Infidels on top of that, thus having no rights he was bound to respect.
Given the likelihood — indeed, the virtual certainty — that is behavior is a manifestation of his Islamic beliefs and assumptions, it is deeply and viciously (even greasily) Islamophobic for the British authorities to send him to jail. It conflicts with their policy of nonstop accommodation of Islam and the barring of critics of jihad terror and Sharia oppression from entering the country. Free Mohamed Jamal Miah! Make him Prime Minister! Stop the Islamophobia!
A FORMER employee at a popular Indian restaurant in Exeter has been jailed for targeting females walking alone in the city.
Mohamed Jamal Miah, 34, was convicted of one sexual assault and two common assaults after his lurid and unwelcome advances left his three victims terrified.
Magistrates told him that custody was the only option and he was given 16 weeks in prison after the court heard victim impact statements from all three woman who said Miah’s actions had left them scared to go out alone.
Described as a ‘devout Muslim,’ Miah had been living and working at the Argee Bhajee restaurant in Buddle Lane, St Thomas, at the time of the offences.
The court heard he had recently moved to the city from Coventry to Exeter but had struggled to adjust to British culture in the five years since he arrived in the UK.
Sentencing him at Exeter Magistrates Court, the bench chairman told him: “There were three separate lone victims. They were female victims and we have heard from their victim statements that the effect on this is all very similar. There was very limited physical effect but the emotional and mental effect on them is longer lasting and that has greatly influenced our view on these offences.
“One offence even occurred when you were on your way to court to answer a charge of assault. Throughout he has not accepted the seriousness of this on his victims. He is unwilling or unable to explain his behaviour.
“Whilst the offences taken in isolation may not result in custody, taken collectively with the pattern of behaviour exhibited by over that short period, these three offences are so serious only a custodial sentence is appropriate or right.”
The first incident that came to the police’s attention took place at around 4.15pm on November 12 on Dunsford Hill .
Prosecuting Lyndsay Baker said: “The victim saw the defendant stood in front of her on the pavement and got to an “uncomfortably close distance.”
“She said hi, believing he may be asking for directions but the defendant said in an aggressive manner ‘you come home with me.’
“He then grabbed hold of her arm and said it again. She believed he was going to force her to go home. The defendant then said ‘you are a very beautiful lady and asked if she had a boyfriend. She responded and said ‘no, I am going home with my husband’ and tried to walk away. He grabbed her shoulder and said ‘no you are coming home with me.’ She managed to struggle away and leave the defendant. When she got home she called the police.”
The second incident on November 26 happened as the defendant was on his way to court to answer charges over the first offence.
The victim was walking to Exeter College along Cowick Street towards Exe Bridges. She first noticed the defendant behind her near St Thomas railway bridge. He started asking her questions and when asked if she had a boyfriend she replied yes. He then suggested they go out shopping or to dinner.
“The victim said she was feeling uncomfortable with the situation and as they neared Bonhay Road he leaned in to kiss her,” said Ms Baker. “She managed to resist but his lower arm made contact with left arm and shoulder. At which point she stood still in front of the defendant and he walked away.
“She was scared and panicked and called her mother who immediately notified the police.”
The third offence happened on November 10 at around 4pm. The 31-year-old victim was taking her dog for a walk along the River Exe. He grabbed her biceps and leaned in to kiss her.
“Although she tried to avoid contact his lips touched the corner of her mouth,” said Ms Baker.
She pushed him away but he grabbed her arm again and started saying “I really like you.” She pushed him away with more force and told him to leave her alone. At this point he finally backed away.
“Only when she discussed the incident with friends did she realise the seriousness of it and she reported it to police on 15 December.
Richard Parkhouse, defending, said: “His marriage ended and he left Coventry and had become socially isolated.
“He was struggling to adjust to British Culture and understanding the relationships between men and women.
“He is a devout Muslim and has lost his good character at the age of 34. This is stigma attached to him for the rest of his life.
“He was at the time employed and had accommodation with his employment. But he has lost this as well.
“He was a man of previous good character.”
Miah will also be on the sexual offences register for seven years.
