So much for #METOO and #TIMESUP: U.S. judge “goes to bat” for FGM in landmark case

David MenziesMission Specialist


Last year, Jumana Nagarwala, an Indian-American physician in Detroit, became the first person charged under a U.S. law on the books since 1996 criminalizing female genital mutilation.

So far, things aren’t going well for the side wanting to see justice done.

A District Court judge has dismissed the one major charge out of several against Nagarwala and her husband, Fakhruddin Atta, that could have landed them in prison for life.

Nagarwala denies any crime was committed, saying she merely performed a religious custom on girls from her Muslim sect, the India-based Dawoodi Bohra.

Previously, I reported on Dr. Allan Jacobs, director of the gynecological oncology department at Coney Island Hospital, who suggested an outright ban of the practice is a form of “cultural prejudice.”

In this age of #METOO and #TIMESUP – we have judges and doctors in the west going to bat for FGM, presumably because they don’t want to be branded politically incorrect.

Its not cultural prejudice, it is cultural discernment. We do not torture and mutilate our girls in Canada. If you cannot accept that you cannot accept Canada or have first allegiance to Canada. If you cannot accept that cutting off a young girls clitoris and in some cases sewing her vagina shut is something we don’t do in Canada, then you don’t want to become Canadian, you won’t assimilate and you will never be someone I want to share my country with. Justin thinks it is fine, the foreign born Somali immigration minister thinks its fine.

If you can allow and or ignore mutilating young girls genitals, polygamy, incest, thighing, child marriage. What won’t we let Islam get away with in our country?

Dan absolutely right, lopping off the head of the penis , or a complete sweep of it would be the equivalent to FGM. I am pretty bloody bigoted when it comes to mutilating children, or defiling them in any way. Islam couldn’t care less what their ‘host’ country think of their practices. They are not shy.

Where are all the anti-men “feminists” who were marching the other day? Apart from wanting all men castrated they might consider, at least a little anti-FGM protest. Ah, but then it might offend their masked, bin-bagged friends. Was the judge in this case a recent islam convert?

Under Trudeau, we’re teaching children
• that they are genderless (transgenderism),
• that mutilation of little girls’ genitals is okay(FGM),
• that boys are worth more than girls (Sharia)
And just around the corner:
• condoning sex with little boys (bacha bazi)
• excusing rape (Taharrush)
• allowing physical abuse of women
Thanks Justin for your new version of a “Just Society”.
I think most people here know the content of what you wrote is the truth…
When I read it, how you wrote it made the content and implications jump off the screen and kick me right in the head!
I wonder if that works on lefties?

If one was to visit this heinous barbarity on the drivers and practitioners of FGM, Moslem males, I believe the equivalent would be lopping off the head of the penis. Ouch!
Now that’s pretty barbaric…
And since Jihadi Justin excoriates sane, moral people who condemn this practice as barbaric, I suggest equal-outcome-FGM should be perpetrated on him and his children, because according to Justin Clitcleaver, FGM is not barbaric…it’s just a cultural practice!
Just lay back, open wide, put your feet in the stirrups cowboy, and relax…

The troll is back.
CBSA were alerted some time ago there are mutilators arriving in Canada to perform this barbaric act…also warned about girls returning to Canada after mutilations were done elsewhere – this is known as vacation cutting.

Jay Kelly Circumcision decreases some health risks. And neither are Surgeries.
commented 2018-01-24 02:08:58 -0500
Jay Kelly they are nowhere near the same thing. Now go support the mutilation of women like a coward.
commented 2018-01-24 00:53:47 -0500
Circumcision and female genital mutilation are surgeries that permanently alter the body of a child. Culture and tradition have some how allowed these surgeries to continue even when the best medical advice is against them.

Should the government clamp down on such practices, and how far are you willing to let the government take control of personal decisions? In Canada we seem to have found a balance.

- There needs to be zero tolerance for FGM. The fact that feminists aren’t up in arms over this says a lot.

Dose Trudeau go to sleep with blood on his mind? He has a lot to answer to, for he is in good part to blame for what is happening in Canada.

Glenn Craig:
There is NO comparison.
To address your specific concerns and argument, the following article clearly, clearly addresses this very argument and to summarize, says “It’s a bizarre argument to make, rather like comparing ear piercing with sawing off a person’s entire ear with a rusty hacksaw”. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/active/mens-health/10998633/Dont-compare-male-circumcision-with-FGM.html
I don’t agree with male circumcision, but there is absolutely no comparison to FMG and male circumcision.
commented 2018-01-23 16:35:40 -0500
“And the uncircumcised man child whose flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, that soul shall be cut off from his people; he hath broken my covenant.”

The only difference is than it is done to boys at an age that they CANNOT get a lawyer and sue. ANY eighteen year old boy who experienced the pleasure of having his lover “peel the grape” …if he was subsequently circumcised by force or coercision….you bet your foreskin he would sue…

So unless theREBEL gives equal time to male genital mutilation don’t expect me to rally to the cause of FGM.

It makes sense for the Prosecutor to appeal this judge’s dismissal of the charge to a higher court.
FGM is a barbaric act which is not to be tolerated period! Anyone foisting yet another statement to the public telling all of us “there is a need to be culturally sensitive” should be charged with the crime of criminal indifference toward a minor, and aiding & abetting crimes.

These judges and doctors that go along with this mutilation of young girls and women are cowards that are afraid to say anything against Muslims and their barbaric practices.
Judges like the one reported in the story above and that Dr. Allan Jacobs should have their balls cut off or should be circumcised with a straight razor while being held down by several people. See if they came to the same conclusions after that.
Men and women who dare to call themselves Judges and doctors and yet condone and justify these barbaric acts should have their licences revoked and never be allowed to associate with other humans especially children.
