Police probe into child beatings at mosques

| February 15, 2011

POLICE have launched child assault probes at three of Scotland’s most prominent mosques, The Herald can reveal.

Detectives last night confirmed they are investigating claims boys have been beaten in madrassas – or Islamic schools – in Glasgow.

Their probe is understood to be focusing on madrassas at Glasgow Central Mosque, Scotland’s biggest place of worship of any faith, the influential Masjid Noor in Pollokshields and the smaller Zia ul-Quran nearby.

A spokeswoman said a report on a 49-year- old woman has already been sent to the procurator-fiscal.

The investigations came after prominent Scottish Muslims raised concerns about teaching methods and child safety regimes at the mosques and their associated madrassas.
