A Chicago Islamic School President Charged with Sexual Assault

The accusation has caused a rift in the local Muslim community

Mohammed Abdullah Saleem
From The Washington Post:

Mohammed Abdullah Saleem, 75, of the Institute of Islamic Education in Elgin, a Chicago suburb, was arrested Sunday after the allegations against him were reported Saturday night in the Washington Post and the New York Times. The woman told police in December that she had been sexually abused by Saleem at the school last April, according to a news release issued Tuesday morning by the Elgin police.

Saleem was scheduled to appear at a bond hearing Tuesday.

The allegations against Saleem, who has been a respected Muslim leader in Chicago for decades, surfaced in December, when leading Muslim scholar referred to them in a blog.

The Saleem case had created tensions in Chicago’s large Muslim community among those who believe such allegations are better handled by religious and community leaders and those who believe they should be reported immediately to police.
