(September 23, 2012)–On 29th May 2012 the Sikh community protested in Luton after a Punjabi girl from a Sikh background was allegedly raped by a young British born Pakistani Muslim man.
Anan Majid Basharat has now been charged with 3 accounts of rape and one account of ABH. He is due to appear in Luton Crown Court in December for a plea and case management hearing.
The violence and harassment prior, and the barbarity of the rape ordeal were on a sadistic level.
It left members of the local community shocked and shaken. The anger turned towards the Police, who were made aware of the increasing level of intimidation by Basharat, but failed to acknowledge the tell tale signs, especially considering his criminal record.
