Dundee shopkeeper jailed for one year after plying girl, 12, with gifts and grooming her for sex

Who imagined this was going on in Dundee decades ago? The family of the Muslim offender matters more than the schoolgirl he abused.


A pervert who preyed on a young teenage girl, grooming her for sex and plying her with gifts over an 18-month period 20 years ago, has been given the maximum sentence for the crime of a year in jail.

Rana Irfan Aslam, 51, was told by Sheriff John Rafferty that only a custodial sentence was appropriate and only the maximum possible was available to him.

The sheriff court heard Aslam gave the girl gifts of money, perfume and alcohol before engaging in unlawful sexual activity with her at various locations in Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross and Fife.

The victim, who was 12 at the time and cannot be named for legal reasons, branded shopkeeper Rana Aslam a “dirty, paedophile scumbag”.

Aslam had denied the charge and the matter went to trial before Sheriff Rafferty.

Following a day of evidence, he was found guilty – under deletion of having full sexual intercourse — of using lewd, indecent and libidinous practices and behaviour towards the girl, giving her gifts which included a mobile telephone, inducing her to enter a vehicle with him and driving her to various locations where he engaged in unlawful sexual activity with her.

The court heard that Aslam preyed on the girl on various occasions between August 1998 and August 2000 at locations including Dundee’s Wellington Square, Ogilvie Street and at Gourdie Croft in Kingsway, at a Spar shop in Dundee and at unknown locations near Arbroath, Tayport, Kingoodie and elsewhere.

Solicitor Advocate Jim Laverty told the court the reports before the court indicated that a custodial sentence was inevitable and his client took no issue with that view following his conviction, albeit he still maintained his innocence.

He pointed out that a prison sentence would impact on his family and also asked the sheriff to take into account the delay in getting the case to court since it was first reported to police in November 2013.

Why Muslims Kill For Islam

Amazon have now banned the only book on Islam that proves Islam has been a terrorist ideology since Year 1 of the Islamic calendar.  The book denounces violence and hatred, yet has been described as offensive by Amazon.  Yet Amazon still sell copies of "Mein Kampf" (which advocates gassing Jews) and Amazon still sell books like "The Anarchist Cookbook" which Muslims use to learn bomb-making.

My new book (co-authored with Tommy Robinson) was published at the end of July 2017.  The book went straight to No.1 on Amazon, and stayed there for 4 days (that is, until the entire print-run of 5000 copies ran out).

`The Koran, Decoded

The book is now back in stock and you can buy the book here:

Or you can read the 100s of five-star reviews the book received in its first few months on sale.

Considering that Twitter and Facebook have banned me, YouTube has removed entire channels, and Google deliberately promotes Islam in discussions of Islam and terrorism, it's only right to do my social networking on a site that really seems to stand by the concept of freedom of speech.
