If anyone was in any doubt that there is a growing Islamic-leaning in public institutions that regards Sharia (Islamic) law as above the Constitution, look no further than belaboured Dearborn, Michigan. Whilst in the US, people are free to practice their religion without interference or judgement, this does not permit the importation of dangerous, damaging and just plain barbaric practices that hurt and oppress women. But what has happened in a medical clinic in Livonia shows us that it is in fact happening.
An emergency room doctor at Henry ord Hospital has been charged with performing Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on young girls aged 6 to 8 years old. Jumana Nagarwala, has been accused of performing this gross procedure (which involves partial or complete removal of the clitoris) on girls from both inside and outside Michigan.
Under Islamic law, the procedure is carried out to “control women’s sexual urges”, as it means the victims will never be able to fully experience sexual arousal. It is wrong, it is sick, and it is happening in America today. Although historically, many societies have performed similar procedures, since the modern day, this is almost completely ann Islamic practice that takes place as standard in many Muslim nations (more than 80% of Mulsim women in Egypt for example). It is possibly the most oppressive thing a man can do to a woman, and it needs to be punished with the full force of the law.
What is largely ignored while prosecutors try to deal with the doctors involved, is that it is the parents who bring the girls for this butchery. Why are they not being prosecuted for child abuse?
B…b…b…but that doesn’t happen in America…does it?
A Henry Ford Hospital emergency room doctor has been arrested and charged in connection to performing female genital mutilation on young girls.
Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville Michigan is accused of performing female genital mutilation on underage girls.
According to a criminal complaint, Nagarwala performed the procedure on girls ages six to eight years old at a medical clinic in Livonia.
Some of the children were brought from out of state for the illegal procedure. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) is considered the complete removal or partial removal of the clitoris, known as a clitoridectomy. FGM is internationally recognized as a violation of the human rights of women and girls.
The investigation revealed that in one particular case, a 7-year-old was brought by her family from Minnesota. An investigation into phone records revealed their location. The child was interviewed on April 10. She stated that she was brought to Detroit for “special girls trip.”
The child victim also stated that she said she had to go to the doctor “to get the germs out.” Upon a medical exam on April 11, a doctor determined that the child’s genitals had been altered or removed. The child identified Dr. Nagarwala as the doctor who performed the procedure.
Some consider FGM as a religious and cultural practice. The purpose of this illegal practice is to suppress female sexuality in order to reduce sexual pleasure.
In the criminal affidavit, Nagarwala performed FGM on girls who were approximately 7 years old at the time at a clinic in Livonia.
“According to the complaint, despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Blanco. “The Department of Justice is committed to stopping female genital mutilation in this country, and will use the full power of the law to ensure that no girls suffer such physical and emotional abuse.”
“Female genital mutilation constitutes a particularly brutal form of violence against women and girls. It is also a serious federal felony in the United States. The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law,” stated Acting United States Attorney Daniel Lemisch.
“The allegations detailed in today’s criminal complaint are disturbing. The FBI, along with its law enforcement partners, are committed to doing whatever necessary to bring an end to this barbaric practice and to ensure no additional children fall victim to this procedure”, said Special Agent in Charge David Gelios.
