A judge has told a jilted lover he should have ‘been a better Muslim’ after he sent naked pictures of his lover to her mother and demanded money from her.
Khalid Mohamed, 25, of Tottenham, north London, had his Muslim faith questioned by a judge after he lied about having coronavirus when his ex-girlfriend broke up with him.
When she asked him to delete the naked pictures of her he demanded money from her and threatened to send them to her mother.
He then sent them to her mother alongside a text saying her daughter ‘don’t want marriage but want something sexual’ and in her next relationship she could ‘do it more Islamically’.

Somali Mohamed was told by District Judge Susan Williams: ‘I can think of nothing more embarrassing than having a photograph like this sent to your mother.
‘He’s applied pressure and he’s manipulated and he has lashed out. Maybe if he had been a better Muslim he would have deleted them.
‘It is not only malicious but pernicious. He knew there was likely to be fallout for her socially and be cripplingly embarrassing for her.
‘It is a form of domestic abuse, it is manipulation.’
She said the Mohamed ‘played on her vulnerabilities to put pressure on this lady’.
The woman said in a statement given to Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court: ‘We broke up last March and I didn’t speak to him for a few days.
‘Then he said he wanted to be friends. On April 9 he said he was checking into hospital for coronavirus and gave me his mum’s number so we could stay in touch.

‘On Sunday April 19 he said he was going to be put on a machine.
‘I asked him to send me a photo of the ventilator and he said he would do it later. We FaceTimed that evening at around seven but he looked like he was outside.
‘I thought that was suspicious so I texted his mum’s old number and she said he was fine and working from home.
‘I said he told me he was in hospital. She was surprised but hung up shortly afterward.
‘I called back later and she told me he was in hospital. He then messaged me and said his mum was talking about his brother.
‘His mother messaged me and my family calling us liars.
‘He emailed me apologising for his mum. He then FaceTimed and sent pictures of a hospital ward which I knew were fake because I found a link where the photos came from.

‘I asked him to delete my private pictures five times. He told me to pay him money before he deleted them.
‘I asked him to delete my pictures because I don’t owe him anything. He threatened to send them to my mum and said I should respect myself more.
‘He sent the naked pictures of me to my mum.’
The court heard the text message to her mother began: ‘Hello mum, it’s Khalid. I still fully respect you.’
He went on to tell his victim’s mother that her daughter ‘got very angry for no reason thinking I’m not ill because her friend confused her’ and had been ‘swearing and cursing’ at him.
The text finished: ‘Next time she should not do things like this with a man like she has done with lots of men before me, which you should only do in marriage, like sex stuff.
‘In her next relationship she can do it more Islamically. It is not good when she don’t want marriage but want something sexual.’
The court heard how the ‘betrayal’ had impacted his victim.
‘It has affected my physically and mentally. If I think about it my heart will race. I feel anxious,’ she said.
‘I feel guilty because of my religion. I question myself, whether I’ve done things wrong, should I have trusted him? I feel about ignoring him – did that push him to do it?
‘I don’t want to go to sleep. I’m not sure if I will be fine.
‘Throughout the relationship he lied to me. When I last tried to break up with him a year ago he said he had an accident so I got back with him because I felt bad about that accident but I think he was lying about it.
‘I am Muslim and I know I shouldn’t have sent those photographs because in my religion sexual contact before marriage is frowned upon.
‘In some communities parents disown their children because of this. My mum and dad have been supporting me but he didn’t know that.
‘I feel guilty for even sending those pictures to him because I have left myself and my religion down. I am scared to bump into him.
‘I don’t know if he is angry with me. I feel guilty. I question whether I’ve done something wrong by telling the police. I don’t want to be the cause of ruining his life, but I don’t know if I’m still being manipulated.’
Judge Williams said she had ordered the destruction of the picture and will sentence Mohamed herself because she is ‘very keen to limit people looking at the image that is embarrassing to her and I hope it is of some comfort that only one female judge has to see it’.
Mohamed, of Selby Road, Tottenham, admitted disclosed a private sexual photograph or film without consent and making use of public communication network to cause annoyance
As he was given bail the magistrate told him to ‘sort it out now’ and think about how he would have felt ‘if this lady sent photos like those to your mother’.
He will be sentenced at Highbury Corner Magistrates’ Court on 8 April.
