SHOCKING: DETROIT DOCTOR FACING JAILTIME FOR FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATIONS IN THE US
The practice of female genital mutilations is common in Muslim countries. It is a despicable and degrading action against women. Many nations are calling for it to cease.
As mentioned it occurs in many muslim countries.
American is not Muslim. So why is it happening on our land?
An emergency room physician in Detroit was brought to federal court on Thursday. She is charged with performing female genital mutilation on two girls. This reprehensible act is becoming a national window to the problem.
It is suspected she has a history of this for a number of years.
The physician, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is accused of having performed the barbaric act on two young ladies. The clinic she allegedly performed is in in Livonia, Michigan.
The procedure removes part or all of the genital area of a female. Since 1996 there has been a ban on the procedure. This would be the first case of its kind in the US.
“Female genital mutilation constitutes a particularly brutal form of violence against women and girls. It is also a serious federal felony in the United States,” said Daniel Lemisch, acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan, where the charges were filed.
“The practice has no place in modern society, and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law,” he said.
Under Muslim law, the procedure is said to be a religious mandate. Many scholars detest and dispute the practice as having any legitimate purpose.
It should be detested at the very least. It is nothing but a barbaric ritual that permanently harms the patient.
Dr. Nagarwala appeared in court in Muslim dress. Acccording to the Detroit Free Press she was also ordered held for a Monday bond hearing.
The doctor is an emergency room physician who speaks Gujarti and English.
Per the Detroit Free Press.
“that two male family members were in the courtroom but declined to comment to reporters, as did Dr. Nagarwala’s defense attorney.
According to a criminal complaint filed in court, FBI agents were tipped off from unidentified sources that Dr. Nagarwala was performing female genital mutilation procedures.
Agents said they interviewed two 7-year-old girls who told them that they traveled together from Minnesota with their families to see the doctor at a medical clinic.
One of the girls told investigators that the visit had been billed as a special girls’ trip, and the other said her parents instructed her not to tell anyone about the procedure. The girls described the procedures to investigators, and subsequent examinations showed evidence that their genitalia had been cut.”
This procedure gives light to the issue that these type of Muslim practices at least have no place n this country. The doctor needs to be tried to the full extent of the law.
The girls that suffered this humiliation will have no normal lives ahead. Thanks to the doctor and others like her.
