FGM cases in Birmingham rocket by almost 30 per cent

FGM cases in Birmingham rocket by almost 30 per cent, by ITV News.

New cases of female genital mutilation in Birmingham have rocketed by nearly a third, according to new figures.

The number of incidents increased from 52 between October and December 2015 to 67 from January to March this year – a 28 per cent rise. The statistics were released by the Health and Social Care Information Centre.

In total 1,242 newly recorded cases of FGM reported across the country in the same time period.

The new culture of England, though of course not yet among the native English.

Robert Spencer:

A spokesman from the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children said: “FGM … is usually carried out for religious, cultural or social reasons. But let’s be clear – it is child abuse and it causes long-lasting physical and emotional damage. The practice must stop.”

But it won’t, because stopping it would be “Islamophobic.” Why is it obligatory? Because Muhammad is held to have said so: “Abu al- Malih ibn Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: ‘Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.’”
