Detroit Doctor Accused Of Female Genital Mutilation Of Young Girls

Jumana Nagarwala Mutilates young girls.

DETROIT, MI — Little girls as young as 6 thought they were taking a “special girls’ trip” or needed to make a long journey to see the doctor because their tummies hurt, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court Thursday charging a Detroit emergency room doctor with female genital mutilation. Female mutilation is a religious and cultural practice most often found in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, but it is illegal in the United States and has been denounced as a violation of women and girls by the World Health Organization.

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, was expected to be arraigned in federal court Thursday afternoon on the felony charges, which the Justice Department said may be the first brought under a federal statute that criminalizes the practice, commonly known as FGM. Nagarwala is accused of performing the procedures on girls between the ages of 6 and 8, many of whom traveled across state lines to her office in Livonia, Michigan.

Nagarwala, an emergency room doctor at Henry Ford Hospital, is a member of a religious and cultural community that practices FGM as a means of controlling girls’ sexuality, the government said. She didn’t perform the procedures at the hospital, according to the complaint.

Her bio says she speaks Gujarati, indicating she is from India. It is doubtful she is a Hindu as a significant Muslim population exists within the region.

    procedures on girls between the ages of 6 and 8,
    The parents have left it a bit late – that’s marriageable age.

    Sorry to go OT:

    Crappy web paper publishes slanted piece entitled Chaos Erupts Over Islam at Building Bridges Event in Mississauga, then takes it in the gonads in the comments. Someone obviously thought it’d win them some more tasty samosas.

    • That was some article.

      Too bad the comments have been closed.

    Don’t think we’ll hear about this on Ellen or Oprah.

      But she / he / they look to be transgendered. Doesn’t that make it alright?

  • richard

    More of those “Islamic” values.

    • Likely.

    • John Boy

      So much for following her “Hipocratic Oath”.

      Oh, that’s right, Islam believes that it is their followers’ duty to lie to infidels!

    • Alain

      Well it is certainly not a Hindu tradition.

    Speaking of the parents and imams “involved”, no mention of their arrests alongside the butcher?
    The “procedure” is often driven by more vomit inducing motives than just “culture”. For example:
    Such girl children, especially American born or with legal USA resident status, would be a very valuable commodity, finding favour because of their “guaranteed” virginity with prospective cultist grooms both foreign and domestic.
    The “procedure” also has the effect of making intercourse more painful and less pleasurable for the female and more pleasurable for the husband.

    • They seem reluctant to make inquiries of such depth.

        Her “outreach” has an aroma of minn minn somalis.

  • Why is this broad in the US?

        I don’t care if it’s a La-Z-Boy as long as there’s 2200 volts flowing through it! 😉

      • The comfy chair?!

        • Minicapt

          … better than the rack.

            Or the comfy chair with the overstuffed cushions!

          • So I’m told.

    What good does such an immigrant bring to this country?
    And while I’m on the subject, every single one of those families that FGM’d their own daughters need to be deported, even the girls that had the procedure.
    It’s too late for them and they all need to go back.

      Diversity! I’m told it’s our strength.

  • ontario john

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with Islam. Talk like that can make you a target of the motion 103 Islamophobia committee, and feminist Trudeau doesn’t like the word barbaric.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Strip the bitch of her medical license and all medical privileges. Take those kids from the parents as clearly they are abusive in the extreme. Throw the full weight of the law against them.

  • terrence22

    “she” looks more like a HE to me – maybe because she underwent FGM?

    Such a sweet little face. It reminds me of a memory that still terrifies me:

    Perverted woman. She’s just a lousy f***ing pervert. Plain and simple.

    At the risk of drawing a lot of outrage I still have to point out a certain disconnection here in the West. On one hand far too many see no problem with killing the unborn in the name of “choice”, and yet the same people get all in a tizzy over this. I think both are wrong with the exception of the pregnancy putting the mother’s life at risk. I am not talking about inconvenience to the life and lifestyle of the mother either. She could easily give the child up for adoption if that is the case. Basically I see people who see no problem with killing an unborn child, but who get all upset over the genital mutation of a young girl.

    • Editor

      Aren’t the people in agreement with “killing the unborn in the name of “choice” the most silent about this practice though? As Clink9 suggested above, I doubt well hear Ellen or Oprah talking about it.
