Two Muslim physicians and the wife of one of those physicians have been arrested for conspiring to perform Female Genital Mutilations (FGM) on minor girls in Michigan. Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, and DR. Jumama Nagarwala, were arrested by authorities. Their victims ranged in ages from 6 to 8 years of age.
FGM is a ritual prevalent in some predominantly Islamic countries. It involves the partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, most often performed without anesthesia. The reason for this barbarity: to ensure females remain virgins until marriage.
This is yet another piece of evidence that proves all cultures are not equal. While the West celebrates feminism and the equality of the sexes in every walk of life, the Islamic culture not only sees females as subservient to the male (a woman is worth half that of a man according to the Quran and the Haddith), many young girls are forever mutilated because of a cultural edict.
This is just one reason apologists for the Islamic culture are intellectually stunted. There is no equality between the cultures and there can be no moral relativism employed to justify the inferior nature of the throwback Islamic culture.
While the religion itself is nowhere near a "religion of peace," the Islamic culture itself is a thing of the male-dominated Stone Age, just a hair away from a time when women were clubbed over the head and dragged off.
