Jimmy Saville, R Kelly, Micheal Jackson and abusing children


What do Jimmy Saville, Micheal Jackson and R Kelly all have in common?  They all were put under serious allegations of sexual child abuse.  And all of these men were loved by the public. 

It was sad to see people question or defend whether these individuals were right or wrong.  Which made me realise the power of LOVE.  Now back in the day I loved R Kelly and his music, so when I heard about his behaviour I found myself making excuses like…

It can’t be true

the video was fake

But eventually I made up my mind, and I distanced myself from his Music.  And then there was Micheal Jackson.  I didn’t realise how much I loved this man.  But this love was certainly tested when claim after claim started to be revealed about what he did with kids.  I was dissapointed and confused.

Jimmy Saville, now I remember wanting to write a letter (Don’t Laugh) at the thought of going on ‘Jim will fix it’.  He was the man back in the day, sitting their all ganster with his chain and cigar.  He was the one you wrote to, to make your dreams come true.  He won the nations hearts and so much so that for years a secret that he was becoming lazy in hiding soon became front page news. 

I see young girls and Rihanna, dressing like her, having their hair like her and… simply holding on to her words and actions as their salvation.  So when she decided to walk away from an abusive relationship we all aplauded.  However when she decided to avoid confronting her emotional attachment issues and go back to her potential possibility of being abused again, the public remained silent.  We ignored the fact that many young girls would shrug their shoulders like she did and put themselves at harm, like she did.

I was prompted to write this blog when I seen the verdict of the jimmy saville case and his quotes.  He was so sure of himself, and he talked as if he could get away with anything.  And he did for a long time.

May Allah aid us to be successful in protecting ourselves and our children from the evils of this world. Ameen
