QOTD: “Everybody knows somebody who has gotten their daughter cut [FGM]…”

The recent arrest of a Michigan doctor accused of performing the procedure on two 7-year-old girls from [Zehra] Patwa’s own Shiite Muslim sect, the Dawoodi Bohra, highlights how female genital mutilation is alive and well in parts of the Western world where its adherents have migrated and formed communities.

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is accused of performing the procedure on two Minnesota girls that left them with scars and lacerations. Her attorney, Shannon Smith, insists that Nagarwala conducted a benign religious ritual that involved no mutilation.

Prosecutors on Friday charged two other Bohras, Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, with conspiracy. Fakhruddin Attar owns the Detroit-area clinic where the alleged procedures were performed in February, and investigators say the couple knew Nagarwala was doing the procedures after business hours.

There are more than a million Bohras in the world, most of whom live in India. No one knows how many there are in the U.S., but it’s estimated there are about 25,000 and that they have about 20 mosques and gathering places.

Patwa, who is part of the activist group Speak Out on FGM, said that given its clandestine nature, it’s hard to estimate how many people perform female circumcisions in the U.S. But there are a small number in the Bohra community who are known by elders and tend to be clustered around large cities with Bohra mosques, she said.

When many Bohra girls are age 6 to 8, their parents approach – or are approached by – a “secret network” of female elders about getting the girls cut. There is then an informal vetting process to make sure a request is legitimate and not an attempt to expose any activities, Patwa said.

“Everybody knows somebody who has gotten their daughter cut [FGM] … but nobody wants to rat out their family members or friends,” she said.

  1. Islam Is nothing more than an excuse to perform sick, perverted, disgusting, inhumane practices on others. I challenge any Muslim women to tell me 10 things they love about Islam. I offer to Islamic women in the US a challenge. Give up the burqa, divorce the sorry abusive excuse of a man you’re with and enjoy life for once.

    • i get it! how on earth are you going to get even to one to agree. when the men have all the say about women they have no rights for anything. well they cross my path i am locked and loaded and ready. very sick slaughter of young children( girls) . do not understand any reasoning behind any of this just a question why not boys genitals. i am so beyond shocked of this barbaric rituals this having been said i think i need to vomit . i am seriously sick over this barbaric behavior

  2. sharia law is being praised from the Left then let those women and wife’s and daughters get their clitorious cut off and enjoy the bondage they promote for Americans! Silence islam and STOP preaching in our Public Schools our daughter’s aren’t dirt or objects of enslavement!!

  3. This is beyond barbaric. Our leaders are traitors and have sold out our country. Everyone involved should be publicly hung.

  4. I find it totally unbelievable that the big-n-bad Nancy Pelosi and all of her women’s libber types have NEVER EVEN ATTEMPTED to speak out against this kind of female abuse! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU GOOD FOR MS. PELOSI?????

  5. Most people think that FGM is to oppress women, but this doesn’t make sense to me since they beat, stone, and kill women for minor infractions. I think the FGM is because Mohammed thought whoever orgasm first (the male or the female) would determine the sex of the child. By mutilating the female genitalia would allow the man to orgasm first…. determining the child would be male.

    Educate muslims on the falsehoods of koran. Show them their prophet is stupid, self-serving monster who I hope burns hotter in hell for the atrocities done in his name.

    • Very interesting, Maggie! I think you make an excellent point. Of course we all know that old Mo wasn’t about to be outdone by any female counterparts of his. He undoubtedly felt intimidated whenever his “whores” seemed to be enjoying “it” more than himself! What a sick, demented filthy BASTARD!!!!!

  6. Islam is sick,it is not a Religion it is a cult,an the Christians don’t believe in the same god as Moslems do that is a myth,they have a god of hate an murder,we Christians have a God of Love….

  7. The college snow flakes are protesting individual freedoms and capitalism!! Also mutilating themselves by abortion on-demand!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
