I am looking for constructive advice and I am wi seeing if you can guide me.
As a child my parents use to send me to the local mosque but when I attended the Imaan (several) use to beat the hell out of me by slapping me, beating me with sticks, bending me over and hitting me with shoes and sticks on my back and bottom.
This went on for years I guess between the ages of 6 on wards until I got to high school. I told my parents about it but they didn't do anything about it as it was a culture and acceptanted in my community back in the 80's and 90's. My childhood was ruined as everynight I would cry and I always use to experience nightmares. I didn't have a voice and I felt alone.
I stopped going to mosque by running away but my parents then use to find me and send me back. I resented my religion and the imaans who abused me and took my childhood away from me. I lost my innocence as a child.
I am wondering if I should report this to the police as I don't have a closure in my mind. I don't know the names but I know the local mosque where the abuse use to take place. I can describe the men that use to abuse me. I don't want to be identified by the perpretrators.
I don't need counselling or anything like that. I just want justice and raise awareness. I want to turn it into a positive. I wasn't sexually abused.
I am sure you got lots of questions for me. Please advise?
