Muslim cleric, 51, who runs Britain’s largest network of sharia courts is quizzed over child rape claims

A Muslim cleric who runs Britain’s largest network of sharia courts has been questioned over historic child rape allegations.

West Midlands Police are investigating claims that Sheikh Faiz-ul-Aqtab Siddiqi raped two Dutch women in the 1980s and 1990s.

He has denied the claims, which first appeared in the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, saying they are ‘unfounded’ and part of a campaign to discredit his family.
