Noor Walile, 38, (pictured) was given a six year jail term after he raped a boy in a mosque toilet
An imam who raped a young boy was protected by mosque elders who banished him abroad only for him to secretly return to the UK.
Noor Walile, 38, was given a six year jail term after he raped the boy in a toilet in between a lesson he was giving at Rugby Mosque, Warwickshire.
When confronted about the attack after the terrified child told his parents he said: ‘The devil made me do it’.
The elders ordered Walile to flee back home to India and told him to never return or the police would be told.
But years later the disgraced religious teacher was traced to an address in Leicester after his young victim broke his silence and told detectives.
When the rape charge was put to him at Warwick Crown Court, Walile, broke down in tears.
He said: ‘I am guilty. So sorry, I am guilty.’
Walile was told by the judge he was a ‘danger’ to the community and must serve every day of his sentence.
Prosecutor Jane Sarginson said he was the imam in the mosque in around 2010. Among his duties was teaching children.
The court heard how Walile raped the boy in the mosque’s toilets during one of the lessons.
