Muslim Organization: Possible Child Abuse in Mosques outside The Hague


Farid Azarkan, the chairman of the Association of Moroccan Dutchmen (SMN), says that his organization has been informed by some of its members that there is a possibility that children are being beaten by teachers in mosques outside The Hague as well. The Justice Department is to investigate 49 cases of child abuse during Qur’an lessons in mosques in The Hague. Azarkan added that the number of mosques outside The Hague where this is happening is limited. The SMN said that it is unacceptable that there is corporal punishment of children.
