In Afghanistan and elsewhere in the Islamic world, this kind of behavior is broadly tolerated. Women are so devalued, men look to other men and boys for sexual pleasure. Also, the Qur’an promises not just virgins to the blessed, but boys like “scattered pearls”:
“Those are the ones brought near in the Gardens of Pleasure, a company of the former peoples and a few of the later peoples, on thrones woven, reclining on them, facing each other. There will circulate among them young boys made eternal with vessels, pitchers and a cup from a flowing spring.” — Qur’an 56:11-18
“And they will be given to drink a cup whose mixture is of ginger, a fountain within Paradise named Salsabeel. There will circulate among them young boys made eternal. When you see them, you would think them scattered pearls. And when you look there, you will see pleasure and great dominion.” — Qur’an 76:17-20
Note also that Muhammed Mucahid is a refugee from Turkey. A refugee from Turkey? Where in Turkey is there a war going on?
And this: “Defending Mucahid, Jo Barham said her client denied the accusations and maintained the boy had been watching him.” This is a frequent defense in such cases. A recent example: UK: Muslim cop on trial for sexual assault of teen claims she repeatedly asked him to have sex with her
