But she smiled first…….
A totally Islamic sanctioned practice, let that sink in first.
Detroit doctor first to be charged under federal law against female genital mutilation
A Detroit emergency room physician was charged in federal court Thursday with performing female genital mutilations on two girls in what is thought to be the first case of its kind in the U.S., and authorities suspect she may have been engaging in the practice for years.
Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is accused of performing mutilation procedures this year on at least two girls in a medical clinic in Livonia, Michigan.
According to court documents, investigators believe she may have been involved in carrying out other procedures as far back as 2005.
The case is believed to be the first in which prosecutors have charged someone with performing female genital mutilation, which involves the removal of all or part of the genitals, under a 1996 federal statute banning the practice in the U.S.
“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.
