Michigan: Up to 100 girls had genitals cut, Dershowitz joins to defend Muslim FGM perps

Source: Up to 100 girls cut in mutilation case, feds estimate

Detroit – As many as 100 girls may have had their genitalia mutilated during a 12-year conspiracy involving three Metro Detroit doctors, a federal prosecutor said Wednesday.

That’s a conservative figure, Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said during a failed bid to keep two doctors jailed pending trial.

There is evidence eight girls were mutilated, the prosecutor said, but so far the nation’s first female genital mutilation case involves only two 7-year-old girls from Minnesota.

The government’s allegation is the latest development in a high-profile criminal case that is raising awareness about a procedure practiced by some members of the Dawoodi Bohra, a small sect of Shia Muslims.

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala of Northville is accused of mutilating the genitalia of two girls Feb. 3 at a Livonia clinic owned by Dr. Fakhruddin Attar.

The Farmington Hills man has been indicted along with his wife, Dr. Farida Attar, who is accused of helping arrange the procedure and being in the examination room while it was performed.

Fakhruddin Attar’s lawyer criticized the government for alleging 100 girls have been victimized.

“I think the government has overstated so many aspects of this case and this is another example,” attorney Mary Chartier told reporters.

The government made the estimate based on Fakhruddin Attar allegedly telling investigators that Nagarwala treated girls at his clinic for “problems with their genitals” five or six times a year.

Prosecutors allege the mutilation conspiracy started 12 years ago.

Chartier spoke after U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman freed the Attars pending an Oct. 10 trial.

The couple were placed on house arrest, and the judge barred them from using computers and accessing the Internet. They also cannot have any contact with alleged victims or witnesses, Friedman said.

For now, the couple cannot live with their 9-year-old daughter because state officials are trying to terminate their parental rights.

The judge’s decision comes less than two months after the couple were arrested and accused of accused of committing female genital mutilation, trying to cover up the crime and conspiring with Nagarwala to cut girls as part of a procedure practiced by their religious and cultural community, the Dawoodi Bohra.

Federal prosecutors allege the two 7-year-old girls who were brought to Metro Detroit on Feb. 3 suffered illegal genital mutilation at Fakhruddin Attar’s clinic in Livonia.

One girl told the FBI that Nagarwala “pinched” her on the “place (where) she goes pee,’ ” and a subsequent medical examinations showed the girl’s genitals did not appear normal and a section had been altered or removed, according to a court filing. A doctor also observed scar tissue and small healing lacerations.

The second girl identified Nagarwala as the doctor she visited in Detroit and a subsequent medical exam showed the girl’s genitalia had a small incision and a small tear, according to a court filing.

Meanwhile, FGM must be very lucrative for Muslims as they hire high power attorneys:  Dershowitz joins genital mutilation case defense team

Famed constitutional law scholar and attorney Alan Dershowitz has joined the defense team in the nation’s first female genital mutilation case in federal court.

The move adds legal firepower to a defense that appears to be focused on First Amendment issues and religious freedom. Federal prosecutors allege two 7-year-old girls who were brought to Metro Detroit earlier this year suffered illegal genital mutilation but defense lawyers say the girls underwent a benign religious procedure.

Dershowitz and prominent Birmingham defense attorney Mayer Morganroth were hired about three weeks ago by the Dawat-e-Hadiyah, an international religious organization overseeing a small sect of Shia Muslim mosques around the world.

“They hired us to protect the people charged and represent the religious organization,” said Morganroth…

It’s no secret that Muslims in the U.S. are preaching and practicing female genital mutilation. Recall, this post:

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

  1. This form of barbaric torcher is used to keep females subservient to males. Mutilation and humiliation key to control, I have noted that Islam deals harshly with females who do not respect the proper man whle a male can treat a female any way he chooses.

    • Hey!”It’s JUST Business ” I hope that Dershysterwitz takes these FOOLS for every cent they have & then they get deported back to “The Stone Ages” !! MY heart goes out to every poor wee lass that has had this horrendous, heinous & barbaric CRIME inflicted upon them!;The Religion Of Peace can pogue mahone!!

  2. This practice serves no purpose other than to render a female incapable of achieving an orgasm. It is barbaric, sadistic and inhumaneIt is the means by which men can control their females sexual activity. It is the ultimate oppression and domination over a woman’s

  3. You can bet your sweet bippy there are thousands more. Somalians and Sudanese are especially fond of mutilating their girl children. When these new American citizens grow up, and begin to give birth, medical personnel will begin to record the actual numbers.

  4. Islam the silent abuser, do not tell, always lie and whatever you do do not speak against Islam.
    This is one reason Islam followers get away with the FGM and other “RELIGIOUS RIGHTS”, ALONG WITH SOME BLEEDING HEART LIBERALS, that defend this action. Solution: send them back to their home nation, they do not want to join American society so why keep them here, let them clean up their home nation and fight for like we Americans did which BTW we should not have to repeat that action, our elected officials need to get their stuff together and protect out nation from these insane people.

  6. well now, just suppose it was a religious tenet to say…cut off one foot? or remove the hand of all lefties? I don’t see how its legally possible to maim someone who hasn’t even reached his majority age where he/she can make this decision of their free will….its wrong for dershowitz to get in this mix as hes on the wrong side of history here…

  7. Why would a GooD Jewish Boy even bother with these Heaps Of Shit?? Oh, wait a minute “it’s just busibess”, these FOOLS deserve to be prosecuted & I hope that Dershysterwitz takes them for every cent they have & then they get deported!!
