Elder of 7th Day Adventist Church, Principal on 14 Sexual Assault Charges

For what is the second time in the space of one year, my home country, the beautiful twin island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is facing a scourge of sexual deviancy by the Seventh Day Adventist Church’s most senior members. On the 23rd of July 2013, Pastor Marlon Holder of the 7th Day Adventist Church in Tobago was brought to court, facing charges of 6 accounts of sexual assault. More information is provided on the Pastor (now former Pastor) of the Church’s charges via the Trinidad newspaper – the Trinidad Express.

The crisis has worsened when on February 10th (2014), school Principal and Senior Elder of the 7th Day Adventist Church – David Smith was charged with 14 accounts of sexual assault. The Trinidad Express reports:

Fifty-two-year-old father of five, David Smith, has been placed on $400,000 bail with surety clerk of the peace approval. The former principal of a primary school in Tobago appeared in the Scarborough Magistrates’ Court yesterday on 14 sexual offence charges.

Smith was not called upon to plead as the charges were indictable.  The 14 sex charges were a combination of indecent assault and serious indecency, which occurred between 2012 and 2013.  The incidents allegedly occurred on the school compound.

Available for online viewing is the nightly news’ segment on the Christian Elder’s court case. More information including that of the Elder’s picture can be viewed in the Trinidad Express article. I ask that the international community pray to help save the children of Trinidad and Tobago from these evil preachers who use their positions within the Christian/ Religious community to commit indecent and morally despicable acts against innocent children.

and God knows best.

Understanding Islam TV Appearance

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,


Due to an extremely busy schedule, I forgot to inform our readers that for the second year running, I was privy to be able to host a Ramadan Series known as “Understanding Islam“. The episodes in which I was featured, aired nationally on several major local channels on the island of Trinidad and Tobago.

The episodes aired from Wednesday 10th July to Tuesday 16th July, several time a day. There is a strong possibility that the programs featuring myself will be aired again before this Ramadan comes to a close. The topics I dealt with revolved around the personality and Prophethood of Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his Sunnah.

TV Schedule is as follows -:

CNC 3:
  • (Monday to Friday) First run 9:54 AM. Repeat  3:50 PM.
  • (Saturday and Sunday) First run 10:25 AM.  Repeat 5:55 PM.
Channel 4:  
  • (Monday to Sunday) First run 9:00 AM. Repeat 4:00 PM.
IBN Channel 8:
  • The programs are being fitted into their daily schedule.

wa Allaahu ‘Alam.
