All forms of child abuse must be stopped

Shiva Mahbobi: All forms of child abuse must be stopped !


”  Muslim children who risk radicalisation by their parents should be taken into care, Boris Johnson has said.”
I am not a conservative ,I don’t like them and I don’t agree with the quality of care given to children by the government but above statement from Boris caught my attention.  Apart from who Boris Johnson is, what he represents  and what is his motivation in saying the above,  I think what he mentioned is important.  Should children who are exposed to Islamist’s brainwashing by their own parents be  taken away from them? How do we define child abuse?

A child must be given the opportunity to grow and to  develop her/ his stages of life in a healthy upbringing and environment  irrespective of which background she/he is coming from. When parents impose their own Islamist ideas on a child to make him   ” a good Jihadist” or her “a good obedient wife   ” or  when they are aware of the Islamist group brainwashing methods and they don’t protect their children, then they subject their children to abuse.

If sexualising  a child is wrong and illegal then religionizing  a child should be treated the same.When parents are imposing their own backward believe system on a little girl and subject her to FGM ( Female Genital Mutilation  ),  these children are taken  away  or parents are  charged for the damage they have caused  to the child;  then why we act differently when it comes to religious brainwashing and we don’t protect these children’s mind and life from political Islam’s cruelty. Both mutilate the body  and the mind of the child. What’s a difference?
