Canada: Female genital mutilation survivor recounts day she was cut (video)

Source: Women in small Muslim sect say they have had FGM in Canada | Toronto Star

The first research of its kind to probe the practice within this tightly knit South Asian community, the study found that 80 per cent of Dawoodi Bohra women surveyed have undergone FGM and two of the study’s 18 Canadian participants said it happened within Canada’s borders.

Luby Fidaali was 7 years old when her mother kept her home from school one morning and took her to someone she believed was a healer — an elderly woman who said prayers over her sore tummy from time to time when she was not feeling well.

But when she got to the cutter’s house, Fidaali was told to sit on a small kitchen stool like those traditionally used to knead chapatis, she said, and was instructed to pull her legs apart.

She glanced at the fire burning in a charcoal stove in the corner and didn’t see the cutter take out a razor blade. “Even when I think about it, it hurts,” she said recently, telling the story for only the second time in her life. She was instructed to sit near the stove and “take in the heat to help the healing.”

Fidaali’s mother told her never to speak about her experience to anyone, including her father and siblings. She doesn’t begrudge her mother, she said, because she was simply “following societal norms in order to stay in the community.”

Fidaali’s family was excommunicated several years later for challenging the Sayedna’s orders, and since, she said, she feels emboldened to speak out against an “oppressive clergy.”

The clergy is very powerful and can intimidate their followers into all kinds of acts for fear of social boycott,” she said.

The imams are behind jihad and they are behind Islam’s war on women too.


It’s not just in Canada, or Michigan, Minnesota, LA, Chicago and New York, but wherever there are Muslim immigrant/refugee populations. For example, Phoenix: 98% of Somali women being treated have undergone genital mutilation (FGM).

A Muslim woman who attends a Boston-area mosque stated, “Everybody knows somebody who has gotten their daughter cut [FGM or khatna].”

  1. Not for nuthin’ but how can reconstructive surgery help this poor woman at this point??? It’s like she said, something has been taken away from her and there’s nothing she can do about it. Seriously, can anything be done to restore her normal sexuality??? I seriously have my doubts!!!

  2. This horrendous and barbaric crime could only be acceptable by the cult of Islam. To allow such practices in a civilized society is disgusting, vile and any other word one can think of that is nasty. This is child abuse, plain and simple. When parents are routinely vilified, or even face charges for a simple spanking, allowing this mutilation of female children just because they are members of a cult is hypocritical and evil! Banning Islam is the only way to stop this nightmare from happening within our borders.

  3. Islam is a Cancer, as thus it must be Eradicated, World Wide ASAP!
    Islam is NOT a religion, maybe a cult at most, but more of a Political system then a Religion
    Since the start of islam, 270 million People have been killed by muslims world wide, it is not a religion of peace.
    To back up my facts watch this video and see for yourself –

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