FED JUDGE DISMISSES CHARGES Against Several MI Muslim Doctors For Female Genital Mutilation.
Just seven months ago an emergency room doctor at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI was arrested for performing female mutilation on young girls ages 6-8 years old.
Families would take their girls to Dr. Nagarwala for the barbaric procedure. He did not perform the female genital mutilation (FGM) at the hospital he worked at. The “procedures” took place at the Burhani Medical Clinic in Livonia, MI, owned by Dr. Attar.
One of the young victims stated that she needed to go to the doctor to “get the germs out.” When the child was medically examined on April 11th, the doctor determined that her genitals were altered or removed.
The child identified Dr. Nagarwala as the one who performed the barbaric procedure on her.
This practice is classified into four types, type one is the removal of the clitoris and type two is the removal of the clitoris and labia minora.
Type three is the worst form of FGM, this consists of cutting the entire area of the labia minora and/or labia majora, with or without removal of the clitoris, then they seal the wounds together, leaving only a small hole for urine and a menstrual cycle.
Type four consists of all other mutilation to the female genitals such as pricking, piercing, scraping or cauterization.
There is nothing beneficial to these procedures, in fact they cause a lot of health problems, even death. Though the procedure is still widely accepted in the Middle East, it is illegal here in America.
A second Michigan doctor and his wife were both arrested and charged with performing this disgusting practice on young girls. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, were both arrested and charged.
Now, a Federal Judge has dismissed the charges and is calling them “unconstitutional”! U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman made the ruling.
This was a devastating blow to the investigation that has been following the 12-year conspiracy to mutilate the genitalia of at least 9 girls as a part of their religious practice.
These arrests brought awareness to the controversial procedure that is happening right here in America and has prompted Michigan to enact laws that criminalize FGM.
Friedman removed three of the mothers from the case who were accused of subjecting their daughters to this abuse. He concluded that Congress had no right to criminalize FGM.
“There is nothing commercial or economic about FGM,” Friedman wrote in a 28-page opinion. (Female genital mutilation) is not part of a larger market and it has no demonstrated effect on interstate commerce. The Commerce Clause does not permit Congress to regulate a crime of this nature.”
This is absolutely disgusting and should not be allowed to take place here in America.
