There was an uproar in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Monday when Pagad ordered that a Madressa teacher accused of abusing a 13-year-old girl be denied bail to remain in prison.

Abdul Karriem Davids of Surrey Estate has appeared in a sexual harassment lawsuit after the victim's mother charged him last week.
The 44-year-old teacher and owner of Halawat Ul Qur'an Haafith Academy in Ottery, was arrested by the Mitchells Plain Crime Organisation, Child Protection and Sexual Offenses Center on Thursday at the school.
He was taken to Grassy Park police station where he was charged with rape, which happened in Ramadaan, in May.

According IOL, Suspect spent last weekend in custody after his lawyer failed to release him on Thursday night.
On Monday, fellows of Pagad (People Against Gangsterism and Drugs) came to support the victim's family, speaking out when the prosecutor said the government would not oppose bail. However, Magistrate Goolam Bawa, did not tolerate overcrowding threw out Pagad members.
David released on R1000 bail with strict conditions.
