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.”

Attorney: Mosque paid doctor to perform genital cuttings on girls

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala – enjoys torturing and mutilating young girls for Allah

A local mosque was paying a physician to perform female genital mutilation on young girls, an attorney serving as a guardian for the doctor’s children alleged in court Tuesday.

The disclosure occurred during a hearing in which the state is seeking to terminate the parental rights of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, the lead defendant in Detroit’s historic genital cutting case.

Nagarwala’s attorney emphatically denied the allegation.

Feds drop bombshell: Up to 100 girls may have had their genitals cut in Michigan

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala child torturer, needs to meet Nagin and Lucille

A federal prosecutor dropped a bombshell in court Wednesday, telling a federal judge that the government estimates that as many as 100 girls may have had their genitals cut at the hands of a local doctor and her cohorts.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward disclosed the information while trying to convince a judge to keep a doctor and his wife locked up in the historic case. It involves allegations that two Minnesota girls had their genitals cut at a Livonia clinic in February as part of a religious rite of passage and were told to keep what happened a secret.

Religious defense planned in landmark Detroit genital mutilation case

Lawyers plan to claim genital cutting is allowed as a religious right. But legal experts say the First Amendment doesn’t bend that far.

On paper, the law seems clear: Cutting any part of a young girl’s genitalia is illegal — and no custom or ritual can be used to justify it.

The law has been on the books for 21 years, unchallenged.

But in a federal courtroom in Detroit, a landmark case involving the centuries-old taboo ritual is about to put that law to the test for the first time.

And perhaps more historic, a question will be raised in the American legal system that has never been raised before: Does the U.S. Constitution allow for genital cutting, even if it’s just a minor nick or scraping, in the name of religion?

Why female genital mutilation continues in the West

From Carolyn Moynihan at MercatorNet:

The US has its first federal prosecution. Britain after 30 years has no convictions. –

In Britain, where there must be a proportionally larger at risk population and where FGM was outlawed in 1985, there have been no convictions at all to date, although hospitals report an average of 15 cases a day discovered by midwives or maternity doctors. There has been one disastrous prosecution of a doctor that ended in his acquittal. Why this total impotence of the law before a heinous practice that violates the right of minor girls to bodily integrity and attacks the — otherwise fiercely defended — right of a woman to autonomy over her own body? One reason surely is that racial and other cultural minorities have become a sacred cow, including within the feminist movement. That, presumably, is why millions of people can turn out for a women’s march to protect free contraception and a liberal abortion regime, but not to protect minority girls from customary forms of grievous bodily harm – even with a Muslim co-chair.More.

Reality check: The silence is easy to understand. Feminists are only concerned about women’s issues when they spell out ABORTION. Mutilating little girls is neutral as to that. And aborting child because she is a girl is positive. So is honour killing. They are merely “cultural” mutilations and deaths.

Remember that when anyone praises a woman for being a “feminist.” They are praising her for promoting and celebrating the deaths of children, period, end stop.

Middle Eastern savagery is seeping through America’s borders

If you think the cases of little-girl genital mutilation that made national headlines last month after a flurry of arrests in Detroit is a one-off event, think again. The CDC estimates that more than 513,000 girls and women — most of them living in New York, DC and Minneapolis — are now at risk of such disfigurement across the country, a threefold increase since 1990. What’s behind the sickening trend? Muslim immigration.

If it’s “Islamophobic” to say that, blame the US government.

Muslim doctor accused in female genital mutilation case to have fitness as a mother challenged in court today

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala – enjoys torturing and mutilating young girls for Allah

(WXYZ) – The Northville doctor at the center of a federal and state investigation regarding female genital mutilation of young girls is expected to be back in court today.

This time, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala’s fitness as a mother is being challenged. Dr. Nagarwala has already lost her job and now she could lose her children.

Dr. Nagarwala was fired from Henry Ford Health Systems after being arrested on April 10 for allegedly performing genital mutilation on two 7-year-old girls brought from Minnesota for the procedure. FGM is a religious practice condemned around the world and considered child abuse here in the United States.

The alarming rise of female genital mutilation in America

It’s a brutal practice that’s inflicted on thousands of girls and women every year. Female genital mutilation, or female ritual cutting, involves altering or injuring female genital organs. It’s often done by people with no medical training and in filthy places, posing horrendous health risks that can linger for decades. Most victims are told never to talk about it — and some don’t survive to tell their stories. Even as girls and women across the globe faces these risks every day, misconceptions abound. To end the practice, experts and survivors say this practice must be drawn out of the shadows.

UN adviser to Unicef: FGM is gender egalitarian

From Rick Moran at American Thinker:

A former advisor to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and a former “health specialist” at the US National Institute of Child Health defended the practice of female genital mutilation when she appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show.

Dr. Fuambai Ahmadu said she preferred the term “female circumcision” and described the practice of removing all or part of a woman’s clitoris as “gender egalitarian surgery.”More.

Reality check: Unlike most people who are concerned about the situation, she is serious.

Don’t expect the nice bureaucrats here to wonder how much of the guy would have to be “cut” to make the surgeries equivalent. Or with what effect.

Fear Of Islam Should Not Enable Female Genital Mutilation Inside The United States

Two Michigan doctors and a spouse are being charged in the nation’s first federal criminal prosecution involving female genital mutilation (FGM), and the State Department wants to make sure we don’t get the wrong idea.

“When we think of female genital mutilation, we usually think of African cultures and non-Christian religions,” says A. Renee Bergstrom, a 72-year-old white woman, in a newly-released State Department video. “However, my FGM took place in white, Midwest America. FGMC (female genital mutilation/cutting) is global in scope. It cuts across race, religion, geography, and socio-economic class.”

Former UN Adviser Defends Female Genital Mutilation as ‘Gender-Egalitarian Surgery’

Dr. Fuambai Ahmadu, a former lead consultant at the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and former health specialist at the National Institute of Child Health, has long been an advocate for FGM and voluntarily underwent the practice herself. She is an anthropologist and recently worked for the government of Sierra Leone.

Why Is Female Genital Mutilation Still Happening in the U.S.?

Let’s be clear: FGM (female genital mutilation) is illegal in the United States. That fact did not stop Drs. Humana Nagarwala, Fakhruddin Attar, and his wife Farida Attar, from allegedly performing these criminal and human rights atrocities against two vulnerable 7-year-old girls in the Detroit metro area. The physicians and Attar’s wife have all been arrested. According to Fox 2 News in Detroit the three have been charged with female genital mutilation and conspiracy. The doctors are also charged with making false statements to investigators and trying to obstruct the investigation.
