The imam who was sexually abused - and is now speaking out

An imam tells the story of how he was sexually abused by a relative as a child - and the difficulty he has faced sharing his story.

Perhaps most shockingly, the relative went on to become an imam himself.

He speaks to BBC Newsnight.

Due to the sensitivity of the subject, he is anonymous and his words are read by an actor.
