Scotland: Muslims scream ‘racism’ over new law to stop female genital mutilation

In an absurd accusation:

A law to tackle female genital mutilation is racially motivated because it excludes intimate piercings and cosmetic surgery, black and Muslim campaigners have claimed.

Any challenge to the abusive practices that are sanctioned in Islam comes with the inevitable parroting of accusations about racism and “Islamophobia.”

In Reliance of the Traveller — a classic manual of Islamic sacred law — female genital mutilation (FGM) is obligatory (e4.3). By contrast, non-Muslims make their own decisions about cosmetic surgery and “intimate piercings.” They are not coerced or forced. No reasonable thinker would make such a comparison. But those who ascribe to the Sharia know full well how mortified Westerners become when they are called “racist,” so they manipulate and take advantage of this, no matter how ridiculous the charge is.

The World Heath Organization points out the serious harm to women and girls from the misogynistic practice of FGM here.

The ex-Muslim and former Dutch MP, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, suffered the harmful effects of FGM and the psychological torture involved:

“It was done to me at the age of five, and 10 years later, even 20 years later, I would not have testified against my parents,” she states. “It is a psychological issue. The people who are doing this are fathers, mothers, grandmothers, aunts. No little girl is going to send them to prison. How do you live with that guilt?”

Scotland proposed protection orders under the law against the barbaric practice in May to “safeguard women and children who might find themselves under pressure to undergo FGM.” At the time, Equalities Minister Christina McKelvie rightly argued that FGM is “a deeply abhorrent practice and a fundamental violation of the human rights of women and girls. It is a physical manifestation of deep-rooted gender inequality.”

“New law on FGM is racially motivated, Holyrood told,”

A law to tackle female genital mutilation is racially motivated because it excludes intimate piercings and cosmetic surgery, black and Muslim campaigners have claimed.

Proposals to seize passports and detain anyone suspected of the practice have angered Africans and Muslims in Scotland who fear that they are being racially profiled.

Genital mutilation has been carried out for more than 5,000 years in different cultures and religions and still occurs in 30 countries, including Egypt, Ethiopia and Indonesia. It is usually conducted on young girls and ranges from removing all or part of the clitoris and labia, which are considered “unclean” in some cultures, to sealing the vagina to maintain virginity or fidelity…..
