2006/04/19 - Tétouan, MOROCCO.
When Nihad, a 6 year old girl, walked on a prayer carpet belonging to Moustafa LAZRAK, a "f'qih" and imam, he beat her.
On April 19th, in Tétouan, Morocco, a "f'qih", whose role is to teach Islam, attacked the 6 year old girl at the Sidi Ahmed El Bekkal School. In Morocco the "f'qih" is a public education occupation in Islamic law: the position is of 'imam/teacher' in Koranic schools.
Moustafa LAZRAK was praying in the early afternoon, in the classroom, although it was time to begin the class. Entering the room, little Nihad inadvertently stepped on the prayer carpet of the "f'qih". Lazrak then beat the child.
Later in the afternoon, after the beating, the school phoned Fatima, the girl's mother, explaining her that her daughter had "fallen". When Fatima discovered her daughter' condition, she questioned the persons in charge, who delivered another version of the story.
The child confirmed the facts. The imam-teacher hit her violently and she fell on the ground.
The mother was alerted two hours later. Fatima drove Nihad to the hospital where doctors confirmed the gravity of the lesions and trauma. The child's family decided to take legal action against Moustafa Lazrak.
Further facts came to light: this wasn't Moustafa LAZRAK's first violent attack against children.
