UK: Defense Lawyer for Muslim attacker says victim would have “forgotten” about sexual assault “in two or three days”

Jihad Watch – Raj Chopra was inadvertently giving the world a glimpse into the future of Britain. The Qur’an teaches that Infidel women can be lawfully taken for sexual use (cf. its allowance for a man to take “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). The Qur’an says: “O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves of their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful.” (33:59) The implication there is that if women do not cover themselves adequately with their outer garments, they may be abused, and that such abuse would be justified.

Those justifications mean that what Mohammed Akhtar did is going to become more and more commonplace in Britain. The victims are going to start forgetting about these assaults in two or three days, because if they don’t, they will think of nothing else. There will just be so many of them to keep track of.

“Outrage after solicitor suggests woman indecently assaulted in swimming baths would’ve ‘forgotten all about it in 2 or 3 days,’” Lancashire Telegraph, January 17, 2018:

A DEFENSE solicitor caused a courtroom storm after suggesting a woman who was indecently assaulted in a swimming baths would have “forgotten all about it in two or three days.”…

Mr Chopra’s comment came as he was defending Mohammed Akhtar, 50, who had touched the woman on the buttock and thigh as she climbed down the ladder into the pool at Mercer Hall, Great Harwood.

He said the father of five was deeply ashamed and embarrassed by his appearance in court but said an application for him to be banned from any swimming baths where females were present would be “draconian.”

“He has been assessed by the probation service as being at low risk of further offending,” said Mr Chopra.

“It was a brief incident and these things are forgotten about in two or three days.”

After he had finished mitigating Enza Geldard, prosecuting, said; “It is a shame the victim isn’t in court to respond to the defence suggestion she would forget about it in two or three days.”

Passing sentence the chairman of the magistrates said the defendant’s behaviour was unacceptable.

“Mr Chopra’s comment about people forgetting about these offences in two or three days was shocking,” she said.

To Mr Chopra she said: “You made a comment which was offensive which the prosecution has already picked up on.”

Mr Chopra apologised for the comment.

Akhtar, 50, of Hartmann Street, Accrington, pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a female.

He was made subject to a community order for 12 months with 25 rehabilitation activity days and a nine month alcohol treatment condition and ordered to pay £150 compensation and £85 costs.

He was excluded from all swimming baths in Lancashire for 12 months and placed on the sex offender register for two years.
