Dr Fakhruddin Attar

A second Michigan doctor has been arrested for performing illegal genital mutilation surgery on young girls.

Federal prosecutors arrested Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife Farida Attar, 50, on Friday and charged them with conspiracy to commit female genital mutilation surgery and aiding and abetting female genital mutilation (FGM).

Dr. Attar is accused of conspiring with Dr. Jumana Nagarwala to perform genital mutilation surgery on girls who traveled from as far as Minnesota.

Nagarwala, a Henry Ford Hospital emergency room doctor, was arrested on April 12. She is being held without bond.

Nagarwala, 44, was charged with "transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity" — a legal reference to FGM surgery — and making false statements to a federal officer.

Female genital mutilation (FGM) involves the total or partial removal of the clitoris and sometimes the labia. The purpose of the surgery is to reduce female sexual pleasure so girls will grow up to remain faithful to their husbands.

According to WXYZ, the illegal procedures took place at Dr. Fakhruddin Attar's Livonia clinic, which was raided by the feds on Friday morning.

The children told federal agents that their parents told them they were taking a "'special' girls trip."

The girls were accompanied by their mothers to a motel room outside of Detroit, where they were met by Nagarwala.

The doctor told each child that she was giving them an injection to "get the germs out".

After the procedure, one little girl told investigators she was in pain and could "barely walk".

"According to the complaint, despite her oath to care for her patients, Dr. Nagarwala is alleged to have performed horrifying acts of brutality on the most vulnerable victims,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Blanco.

"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. The practice has no place in modern society and those who perform FGM on minors will be held accountable under federal law,” said Acting United States Attorney Daniel Lemisch.

The FBI believes there could be more victims. Anyone with information about the illegal practice of FGM surgery or Dr. Nagarwala is asked to call 1-800-CALL-FBI (225-5984) or file an e-tip at FBI.gov/FGM.

  • Anunnaki

    Umm they have their own god. So that's why they do different thing than your. God.

  • pure_rachet

    These douche bags don't realize women aren't the unfaithful sex? They need Sandy to tell them something.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Why are families allowing this to be done?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Clearly. I will never understand this bullchit here.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    How did they get licensed to become doctors here in the first place?

  • Faux Gibbler

    Why are families allowing this one be done?

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    I don't know... so many questions

  • Maxima

    If they are not natural born US citizens, the should be arrested, stripped of their citizenship and deported. Sickos!

  • JerseyMom

    Wait, so when I said male circumcision was outdated unnecessary archaic practice, everyone defended it as tradition.
    Would it be ok if they were just removing excess labia so it was more aesthetically pleasing like you all claim with men?
    Do y'all get it now?

  • Ms.Caramel

    No because there's nothing to get. Circumcision was mandated by God as a covenant between Him and Israel. That's the difference.

  • BettyBoop

    Well said...?

  • Jae

    No God wants you chopping off parts of a young girl's clitoris.

  • Malai

    ???

  • http://Bossip.com/ ohplease

    I am worried about the ones not caught and are still performing this sick procedure.

  • Faithz

    They need to Lock their as up, down under the Jail.

  • Ice Lee

    Hopefully if the victims are reading this article, they will have courage to turn the criminal doctors in.

  • OP2

    Just like so-called same $ex marriages. Behaviors created by man and promoted by westerner's man-made liberal policies.

  • OP2

    Easy. International medical/dental professionals aka foreign docs can apply for an American student-Visa to be sponsored and retrained as 'interns' in American medical schools and teaching hospitals for 2-6yrs. From there, they can teach on the cheap while gaining more experience working in university-related hospitals on a HB1 Work-Visa.

    -that is how they are slipping through the cracks and forming colonies in the likes of Minnesota & Michigan. So much for promising to assimilate. More like transferring their archaic/barbaric dysfunctional behavior and re-planting it on American soil.

  • OP2

    It's their culture. Brainwashed ignorants thinking it's the right thing to do.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Michigan has a high concentration of Muslims.

  • BettyBoop

    Truth

  • Ms.Caramel

    Exactly... we all know in our spirit that homosexuality is wrong. We are born knowing this. Hence the reason for the shame one feels when they first realize they have acquired the gay demon.

  • Ms.Caramel

    They do it because it's a male driven culture and they wanna make sure they marry virgins and they remain the only man their wives have slept with. They maintain this by making sure the women do not enjoy sex...ie: cutting off their pleasure zones when they young. This by default makes little girls less desirable to pedophiles.

  • OP2

    A news article stated that Liberals are now coming up with a policy to mandate teaching children about this starting in nursery schools. Conservatives are pushing back.

    -the same ones claim that teachers are only suppose to just teach [and no longer give moral lessons or advice children to help them be less dysfunctional with a sense of moral guide as to making the best possible decisions for themselves].

    Yet, there is one exception...only they are allowed to give advice in an effort to push their liberal social agenda to re-condition minds and mentality so that people will be quite dysfunctional and devilish. Hmmm.

  • Ms.Caramel

    Just ridiculous! They are all going to hell..

  • OP2

    Just yank your babies out of such nursery and hold them accountable for pushing their mentality onto your loved ones. Parents do have a say. If you're not teaching my children the basics learning tools and how to be polite in a nursery school, then you're crossing the line without parents permission. ijs

    -people who are empowered are not willing to be passive doormats willing to foolishly lie there & put up with stuff. lol

  • shun king

    Maybe that need to come to the black community so we can stop all these multiple babydaddys

  • shun king

    Cut the man you should be able to cut the women too....

  • Ms.Caramel

    So you gonna edit and add a whole paragraph AFTER people have already responded to you instead of responding to the replies. SMH...ok. Good day..

  • BettyBoop

    Yep.. The whole point was different in the edit. Some people need to learn blog edicate.

  • Ms.Caramel

    Right. Had he/she mentioned no medical reason in the original post I wouldn't have replied at all because I agree, there IS no medical reason for it. I'm done with this conversation...I'm headed to the beach!

  • understandingoverignorance

    What a disgusting act of barbarism...The things women have gone through because of these so called men...smh?

    This clitorial removal still takes place in many Muslim African countries and normally by older village women with crude razors barbarism.

  • Scorpio

    It may not be medically necessary, but haven't they found that male circumcision reduces STDs?

  • Ms.Caramel

    I doubt it. But I do know the penis is cleaner and has less bacteria.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope more children will be brave enough to speak out about this horrific experience. Parents as well as doctors should be held accountable...

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    Thanks for pointing that out.
    I hate when people edit stuff and change their original argument ... as if they think the rest of us won't notice.

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    To take it further... I think performing this kind of surgery should be grounds for a doctor to be stripped of his/her medical license.

  • Yup, I said it

    There is a medical purpose for men. The odor is awful with uncut men plus they have higher rates of penile cancer.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Again , this is not a Muslim ritual , it's a cultural thing , i had googled it some time ago , I found out that this custom was born in Europe , too lazy to google again .
    Revoke their lives not only licenses fukking animals .
    Giving us cool Muslims a bad name .. Sick of this shiit!

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Eritrea us not muslim .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    They should have removed your imaginary clit too ?

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Not medical but a clean dikk is better than a frothy one . Still doesn't take away from the nerves connected to it , unlike women .
    Team no turtle neck .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    What does it have to do with anything ?
    Even if they were blond blue eyed , they should be flown in a helicopter , thrown into the ocean and released to be food .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Because in some cultures , women are the root of all evil .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    They need to be cutting penises .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    It's the same God , different peeps wrote different books .

  • Saharabutnotdry

    A lot is happening here , may I say worse than this .

  • PK

    Abusing children in the name of any kind of religion should be absolutely illegal - religion cannot be used as an excuse or reason to DECIDE for a child. Let them decide what they want to do with their bodies when they are adults, guarantee you none of them would do it. So sick of this kind of sh@t happening to innocent children. Ugh!

    It is is the African Community. They do it in Africa as well.

  • shun king

    do the African women have multiple baby daddies?

  • http://www.swedishsoul.com Christina Duphorn Zehnder

    I have no idea...... I do however know in the past Hiv and Aids was rampant because of the men spreading to the wife and children. It has gotten better though.

  • Faithz

    They need to be locked under the jail.

  • Bella Boss

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yep. I agree...

  • pure_rachet

    OMG lol. I was just talking about bloody penis stubs. Read my mind.

  • Ms.Caramel

    Exactly!?

  • understandingoverignorance

    Someone needs to take a hammer to his scrotum since he a doctor he knows the terminology.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    LMAO! Hilarious!

  • Tea??

    I hope their genitals get mutilated by their cell mates ?????

  • Maxima

    Where ever they are from, if they are not US born citizens, they should be arrested, stripped of their citizenship and deported. As heinous as the crime is, capital punishment in the form of drowning is a bit rash.

  • Faux Gibbler

    I have no words... omfg.

  • Faithz

    Thank you for Common Sense, Comments from real people like you are ALWAYS Appreciated!!!!

  • Birdman24

    You really had a frothy one before???

  • Bassicallylicious ?

    One good thing about curcumcision is that a woman is more save from getting certain types of cancer. . Fact!

  • Bassicallylicious ?

    And women are less likely to get certain types of cancer.. that's a fact..
