Muslim Mother And Nurse Mutilate Little Girls - It Gets Worse

Two young girls were told to imagine they were a “princess in a garden” while they endured a genital mutilation procedure during a religious ceremony. Now the girl’s mother and nurse have been convicted in Australia’s first female genital mutilation case.

According to The Guardian, the mother and nurse were found guilty of performing female genital mutilations on the two girls when they were about 7-years-old in 2009 and 2012. The girls are now 10 and 12.

The practice is known as a ceremony called “khatna.” Part or all of the girls’ clitorises were severed with a silver tool that did not leave them with a scar. FGM is usually practiced as a means of controlling a woman’s sexuality and or increasing a man’s pleasure.

Shabbir Mohammedbhai Vaziri, a spiritual leader in the Dawoodi Bohra Shia Muslim sect, was also found guilty of being an accessory to the crime. He’s accused of trying to cover up the mutilation after police began to investigate.

“The other concern is the continual, in my opinion, pressure they put other members of the community to keep FGM quiet, to continue the status quo and fight this until it goes away and everything will be alright,” Detective Sergeant Eugene Stek.
