Sexual Assault Allegations Against Illinois Imam Stir Divisions in Insular South Asian Community – NYTimes.com

The Islamic center in Illinois is rocked by sexual allegations
against the Imam. The article describes the crisis against a 
background that is all too prevalent in islamic centers around 
the USA.  The issues raised in the article merit our attention and 
need to be more openly discussed and cannot just be swept under 
the proverbial religious rug.

    Neither religion nor any other philosophy or science of life is a warranty of virtuosity. Man and only man must suppress his natural desires and conform to rules to create a moral life or a society.

    Very well stated by Mirza Sahib. I may add that it is incumbent upon the society to safeguard the vulnerable from predators who cannot suppress their natural/un-natural impulses to harm the innocents.
