Muslim doctor performing genital mutilation is worse than we thought.
Dr. Jumana Nagarwala Of Detroit was originally being tried for the mutilation of two seven year old girls. Turns out that there are at least six others who have been discovered with the speculation that it could be as many as 100 girls the doctor illegally mutilated in the name of Islam.
The federal prosecutor on the case of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala of Detroit dropped what the Detroit Free Press describes as a “bombshell” in court hearings on Wednesday by estimating that “as many as 100 girls may have had their genitals cut” by the doctor.
The original allegations against Nargawala, who entered a not-guilty plea, involved two girls and six criminal counts, including a conspiracy to transport the victims across state lines from Minnesota. The owners of the clinic where the genital mutilations were performed, Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife Farida, have also been charged in the case. The victims were seven years old.
Federal authorities have so far identified six other victims of the operation. Most of the families involved are facing custody termination proceedings for subjecting their children to female genital mutilation, as are Dr. Nagarwala and her husband.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward reportedly stunned the court by relating an estimate from the federal government that Nagarwala and her accomplices may have performed female genital mutilation on up to a hundred girls over the course of 12 years. She revealed the information in an unsuccessful attempt to convince U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman to deny bond to the defendants.
