A case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is either discovered or treated at a medical appointment in England every hour, according to analysis of NHS statistics by a charity. It has been illegal to carry out FGM in Great Britain since 1985, but there has not been a single prosecution, which the Home Affairs Select Committee calls a “national scandal.”
Independent Between April 2015 and March 2016 there were 8,656 times when Muslim women or girls attended doctors’ surgeries or hospitals and the problem was assessed — the equivalent of one every 61 minutes. Among those who attended, a case of FGM is newly recorded every 92 minutes on average.
This means a Muslim woman or girl has their case recorded by the NHS for the first time, although in many cases they will have been cut some years before but it has not come to the attention of doctors sooner.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: “FGM is a devastating act of violence that no woman or girl should ever have to suffer and the criminals who perpetrate it should be brought to justice.
Unlike male circumcision, female genital mutilation, done primarily in Muslim majority countries and countries to which Muslims are now immigrating, has no health benefits for girls and women.
Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) involves partial or total removal of the clitoris, causing injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons. The procedure has no health benefits for girls and women. It removes all possibility of sexual pleasure. It is the worst kind of misogyny.
Procedures can cause severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, as well as complications in childbirth and increased risk of newborn deaths. More than 200 million girls and women alive today have been cut in 30 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, where FGM is concentrated. FGM is mostly carried out on young girls between infancy and age 15.
A Sixth Muslim charged in Detroit Female Genital Mutlation case: Though the number of cases in the US is far fewer than in the UK, at least in America, the mutilators (sometimes doctors, sometimes midwives) are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
FGM is illegal in the United States. But the mainstream media are hiding the dramatic news that President Donald Trump’s Department of Justice has announced a national campaign to eradicate the imported practice of Female Genital Mutilation. In fact, the New York Times will not longer use the term “Female Genital Mutilation” to describe the barbaric cutting of genitals of young girls because calling it what it is could be considered “culturally loaded.”
The federal government has made another two arrests in the ever widening female genital mutilation prosecution case in Michigan bringing the number of Muslims charged to six. With another half a million girls at risk of FGM, those charged should be in the tens of thousands.
And while six little girls have been identified as victims of vaginal mutilation in the government’s ongoing female genital mutilation probe, as many as 100 Muslim girls in the community may have been subjected to genital cutting. Two Oakland County mothers who subjected their daughters to the banned religious clitoris cutting ritual have been charged. What mother would subject her daughter to such savagery? A devout Muslim who puts religion above all us.
The defendants have denied any wrongdoing claiming female genital mutilation is a religious rite of passage. Indeed it is. And the mosque was paying for these barbaric Islamic procedures. The Muslim doctors who will stand trial for cutting and mutilating the vaginas of little girls are staging a religious defense.
And don’t let any Muslim tell you FGM has nothing to do with Islam. Dr. Tanveer Ahmed, a Muslim doctor, confirms that FGM does, as the practice thereof is commanded by several Islamic hadiths. Muslims who deny this are attempting to sanitize one of Islam’s most barbaric practices.
Female Genital Mutiliation might have begun as an African cultural practice, but the practice is widespread in the Middle East and the rest of the Muslim world…in some countries, including in non-Muslim Western countries, as many as 80% of young Muslim girls are forced to endure this barbaric mutilation of their clitoris, as a way of disabling any sexual enjoyment for the rest of their lives.
An estimated 130 million young girls have undergone sexual mutilation, mostly in Muslim countries, but now, apparently in Great Britain, Europe, and the USA.
