Islamic supremacism -- taking what's theirs, the dirty kuffar.
Muslim gang raped girls as young as 12 after picking them up on the streets for sex.
Up to 100 ‘vulnerable’ girls may have been groomed, abused or supplied cocaine by married fathers Abid Saddique and Mohammed Liaqat, and their friends.
A court heard the pair used Liaqat’s BMW saloon to trawl for victims, pulling up alongside girls outside shops or schools and chatting them up before a ‘campaign of calls and texts’ to groom them.
Guilty: Married fathers Mohammed Liaqat (left) and Abid Saddique may have abused up to 100 girls.
Saddique, 27, and Liaqat, 28, plied the victims - most from broken homes - with vodka and cocaine before taking them to ‘parties’ in hotels or flats with other gang members to rape or degrade them.
When girls refused their advances they were threatened with hammers or thrown out of cars.
Yesterday Saddique and Liaqat, each British-born and of Pakistani origin with an arranged marriage, faced years behind bars after being found guilty of a catalogue of sexual abuse over an 18-month period.
Seven other guilty members of the gang have already been jailed.
One of 26 alleged victims concerned in the gang’s trials was a 14-year-old straight-A student from a middle-class home.
Meanwhile, one victim was in care, a second was with council foster parents and others were known to social services. Questions will now be asked about whether the various agencies worked well enough together to protect the girls.
The inquiry began in late 2008 when Saddique and Liaqat, both fathers-of-one, were arrested for shoplifting and two young girls were discovered with alcohol in their car.
Police swooped in April 2009 when two teenagers came out of a flat officers were watching and reported they had been raped. The surveillance teams had not known the girls were there.
After yesterday’s verdicts at Leicester Crown Court, a senior officer warned that child exploitation and abuse was a ‘hidden’ problem nationwide.
Detective Inspector Sean Dawson, of Derbyshire Police, said: ‘I would appeal to parents to monitor their children’s phones... and think about if they come home smelling of alcohol or clutching gifts. These are all signs that children could be being groomed.’
