Female Genital Mutilation: Multiculturalism Gone Wild

Attorneys for the defense of two Michigan doctors from India, and one of their wives, who were indicted by a grand jury on April 22 and charged with mutilating the genitals of two seven-year-old girls, intend to put forth a religious-freedom argument on behalf of their Muslim clients.

The defendants are members of Dawoodi Bohra, an Islamic sect based in their home country. In the federal case, the first of its kind since female genital mutilation (FGM) was banned in 1996, the defense team is claiming that the practice is a religious ritual and therefore should be protected by U.S. law.

Their plea unwittingly exposes the false claims made by prominent Muslims — such as Iranian-American religion scholar/TV host Reza Aslan and Palestinian-American activist Linda Sarsour, who have insisted that FGM is “not an Islamic practice.”

    Gee, I wonder why feminists like Heather Mallick at the Toronto Star, never speak about things like that? Oh I forgot, she and the others are too worried about men in white t-shirts and baseball caps raping them in rural Ontario.

      And what men in rural Ontario would even look at Mallick, let alone want to have sex with her?

        She’s got a decent rack.

          Whatever takes your fancy.

            I would rather have a go at Christy Clark.

            This is how Mallick got to the star.

            So she got there the old-fashioned way?

            How else can you explain it?

          • Frances

            I’m not going there.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I don’t have to go anywhere.
            I love my wife.

          • Frances

            Excellent – congratulations and best wishes for many more happy years together.

          you sound desperate like a 50 year old virgin

            I live and work six hundred miles away from my family.
            Epargnez-moi for being a little lonely.

    I hope the judge educates him or herself on this issue. No way can this level of harm to a child be in any way justified.

      My religion, and I have just codified it, not just made it up, because it is called decency and truth and justice, says I don’t have to live with fucking savages.

    The Mexicans will start using the excuse that muman sacrifice is one of their religous practices as a defence in murder cases.
