A man who taught children to read the Quran at a mosque in Blackburn has been found guilty of beating two of them.
Kurram Hussain, 26, of Granville Road, Blackburn, Lancashire, had denied two charges of assault by beating, relating to two boys aged 10 and 11.
He was accused of three charges of assault but one was dropped when a witness failed to turn up at Blackburn Magistrates’ Court.
Hussain is due to be sentenced at the same court on 17 August.
The court heard Hussain taught schoolchildren aged between five and 12 years old how to read the Quran every weekday evening.
