65 year old Maulana Hafiz Rehman in Bihar rapes an 8 year old child in Bihar

A 65-year-old Maulana in Bihar’s Darbhanga district has allegedly raped an 8-year-old girl. According to reports, the child used to take tuitions from the Maulana.

The Darbhanga police have reportedly arrested the man and have sent the child for medical examination. The incident took place under Hayaghat police station area in a village. According to reports, the accused, named Hafiz Mujibur Rehman from the village, used to visit the child’s house to teach her. On the day of the incident, he reportedly gave a chocolate to the girl and raped her. The child’s mother reportedly heard her cries and rushed to check on her. At that time Rehman was reportedly attempting to muffle the girl’s cry by closing her mouth.

Upon seeing the child’s mother, Rehman reportedly ran from the place but he was later arrested on the complaint of the child’s mother. Hayaghat SHO Dilip Kumar Pathak has told Navbharat Times that the child was bleeding from her private parts. She was reportedly sent first to the local PHC and then to the district hospital. Rehman has been arrested under section 4 and 6 of the POCSO Act.

This is one of the many recent instances of child sexual abuse by Muslim religious clerics. Last year in Kashmir, a Maulvi was arrested for raping minor boys under the pretext of warding off ‘evil eye’. In  April, a 10-year-old girl was allegedly raped by a Maulvi and his associate inside a Madarsa in Ghaziabad. In May, a Madarsa teacher in Hyderabad was arrested for sexually assaulting six minor boys.
