Mosque teacher jailed for seven years over sex abuse

A teacher at a mosque convicted of sexually abusing two young girls was jailed for seven years yesterday.

Mahmood Qadri, 60, attacked the girls at Polwarth Mosque in Edinburgh over more than three years in the 1990s.

He was previously found guilty at the High Court in Glasgow of two charges of behaving in a lewd, indecent and libidinous manner towards the children. Judge John Morris QC yesterday told Qadri a jail term was the only appropriate sentence in his case because of the “gravity” of the offences.
