Two mothers were indicted Wednesday and accused of participating in a widening conspiracy that ended with their daughters’ genitalia allegedly mutilated by a doctor.

On Wednesday, two more people were accused of participating in the conspiracy. They are: Farida Arif and Fatema Dahodwala, both of Oakland County.

They were charged with female genital mutilation conspiracy and female genital mutilation. Dahodwala also was accused of lying to investigators.

Arif and Dahodwala were arraigned in federal court Wednesday, ordered to wear GPS tethers and released on $10,000 unsecured bonds. The women, whose ages and hometowns were not available, are not U.S. citizens and were ordered to surrender their Indian passports.

They also were ordered not to have any contact with co-defendants, witnesses or alleged victims, except for their daughters.

The indictment describes a key date in the alleged conspiracy in May 2015.

On May 30, prosecutors say Farida Attar arrived at her husband’s clinic so Nagarwala could perform female genital mutilation on an approximately 7-year-old girl. The girl arrived with Arif, prosecutors allege.

More than a year later, Nagarwala allegedly mutilated another girl from Michigan, who was approximately seven years old, according to the indictment. The details are vague – prosecutors say the procedure happened between June and September 2016 and that Dahodwala caused the girl to undergo the procedure.

The judge in this case also happens to be Muslim and she allowed the suspects to go back to mosque that allegedly paid for the FGM despite being ordered not to have any contact with co-defendants, witnesses or alleged victims.

The government had asked the judge to place both women on home detention and prohibit them from visiting their local mosque, arguing obstructive activity that sought to derail investigators in this case occurred at the mosque and could happen again.

U.S. District Judge Mona Majzoub denied the government’s requests after defense lawyers argued the mothers need to tend to the busy lives of their children, who have many activities planned for this summer, including camp, swimming, reading and technology lessons. They also argued that the defendants should be allowed to attend their religious services. As defense attorney Margaret Raben argued on behalf of her client: “The mosque is her family.”

All six defendants are members of the Dawoodi Bohra — a small Indian Muslim sect with a mosque in Farmington Hills that practices female circumcision and believes it is a religious rite of passage.

According to the superseding or new indictment unsealed Wednesday, four Michigan girls have now been identified as victims of this practice, which is illegal in the U.S. and has been condemned worldwide.

Among those victims are an Oakland County girl who was subjected to a genital cutting procedure on May 30, 2015, at the Burhani Medical Clinic in Livonia. Prosecutors allege her mother brought her to the clinic, where Nagarwala allegedly performed a genital cutting procedure on the girl. The clinic owner’s wife, Farida Attar, also was there.

The other indicted mother is accused of bringing her daughter to the same clinic for the same procedure last year, sometime between June and Sept. 20, 2016. According to the indictment, Nagarwala performed that procedure as well and the victim’s mother lied to law enforcement when questioned about whether female genital mutilation procedures took place.

  1. These people are really sick. Psychopathy is commonplace in Islam and I believe it is due to the Muslim inbreeding.

  2. Sharia Law is not to be practiced in a civilized country like to USA. Please go back to your country if you want to carry on these practices

    • There was an old frogpit of Mecca
      Who had something wrong with his pecker
      So to fix the situation
      He ordered genital mutilation
      That vengeful old frogpit of Mecca

  3. This MUZZRAT judge needs to be DISBARRED!!!! She has proven that she can’t abide by Constitutional law! After being asked by the government’s attorney to ban these women from going to their mosque, on the grounds of incitement to CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR by the mosque leadership–SHE REFUSED TO ACKNOWLEDGE the obvious! As a muzzlum, she knows FULL WELL that these women were influenced by their FILTHY IMAMS to commit FGM on their daughters! This judge KNOWS FULL WELL what is going on here–AND SHE IS 100% COMPLICIT WITH IT!!!!!

  4. Pardon my language but WHAT THE HELL IS A MUSLIM JUDGE ASSIGNED TO THIS CASE ABOUT? It’s ridiculous! And why aren’t every single young woman in that community ordered to be checked for the same FGM crime? Send the whole damn mosque to jail!

    • Touché, Linda! This country (and the whole world) is in a “hell” of a mess! MUZZLUMZ JUDGING MUZZLUM CRIMES–oh yeah, there ya go! That ought’a work ‘real good’!!!!! Kinda makes me think of seein’ the devil at the Pearly Gates instead of St. Pete!!! Hmmm…

  5. Muslim judge “judging” muslim barbarian practices in the US? Uh-huh.

    I’ve got a better idea. Let’s send this trash back to the turd-world sh*t-hole they came from.

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