bought this terrible crime to the fore.
A young lady called Fahma Mohamed has started a petition calling on the Education Minister Michael
Gove to have awareness of this criminal and cruel act spread to every school so that Teachers are
not only fully informed about it but also empowered “Officially” to talk about it with girls who may be
Female Genital Mutilation has been a criminal act for 29 years now, I have covered it on a previous
article but if you are not aware for what FGM is Google it but not at a time when you plan to eat
FGM is cruel, it is an utterly pointless act that has no medical purpose, what it does is cripples a girl
for the rest of her life as an act of subjugation. It makes sex painful, in the worst cases it makes going
to the toilet painful, girls have and continue to die from this as they bleed to death or suffer from
infections of later complications.
This procedure, this mutilation, this cruel butchery is purely an act of enforced subjugation; it is a
tradition way of primitive men putting women in their place as a result of religious or cultural
ideals that were out of date and inhumane a thousand years ago.
Tens of thousands of victims over almost three decades.
NOT ONE BLOODY PROSECUTION!
According to the Guardian link a friend sent me today “A senior police officer has appealed for
information about the "cutters" who carry out female genital mutilation on young girls”.
The police seem to think that they cannot prosecute anyone because the victims are unwilling
to come forward and its otherwise so difficult to detect the crime.
I’m sure a lawyer can correct me on this but a woman or girl is raped or pressured into having
underage sex and then 30 years later goes to the police there is no evidence and just word of
mouth and yet the police prosecute.
A young girl who has suffered FGM cannot hide the fact, the brutality is clear and obvious to any
doctor or nurse who examines her.
So how is it that without evidence the police are so willing to haul people into court but with
unquestionable evidence suddenly no one is interested in pressing the case.
NOT ONE BLOODY PROSECUTION!
Awareness of this problem is a significant part of the problem. The police and public services
such as social services seem to treat this situation as a taboo never to be spoke of. Schools
particularly those that teach girls of the age group most at risk have no briefing or structure of
Our media do not cover this except once in a while on a slow news day, meaningless celebrities
holding parties apparently sell more papers than cruelty and torture of young children.
Yesterday was the United Nations “Zero Tolerance Day” for FGM. Anyone remember seeing
this on the front pages, how about the second or third pages?
A world wide day of awareness and very few people were even aware it was happening.
A police spokesman said “I do understand why young girls who have been subjected to this
may be reticent about coming forward and giving evidence”.
Really, you don’t suppose the fact that in 29 years, 66,000 cases, thousands of girls at risk, a
known high risk period or something that is so common the NHS have specially trained nurses
to deal with the maternity complications FGM victims suffer from that you lot, the police, have
notmanaged a single prosecution may have something to do with the reluctance of the victims
to come forward!
How on earth can you expect the victims to come out and admit that they have suffer this when
the perpetrators which in almost all cases include the victims own families will get off scot free
because the police and crown prosecution services failed to secure a single prosecution in 29
NOT EVEN ONE BLOODY PROSECUTION!
How does this look to the world at large. Tens of thousands of victims who are easily identified
by any school nurse, routine physical or medical check. Absolutely unquestionable evidence of
child mutilation. Are the police and CPS completely incompetent or are they just disinterested?
Object to fraking and the police are on you like a ton of bricks, take a picture of a police officer
and you all too often get the third degree, skin darker than average and you get traffic stopped
twice as often as the average but mutilate little girls, abuse your own daughters and not one
damn thing happens!
Since the police and CPS are continuing to demonstrate just how powerless or incompetent
they are in this matter it is vital to fight this cruelty in another way.
That way is knowledge, that way is to shine a bright light on this foul act and to raise awareness
This should not be something talked about in whispers, this should not be something that
happens in the UK nor should girls and women who have grown up in the UK be unaware that
it is against the law.
If you fly your daughter to Africa and she comes back having been mutilated the parents should
be publicly charged with child abuse and suffer the fullest punishment and this whould be done
publicly, protect the victim’s identity but drag the criminals into the light and make very sure that
everyone else in the country aware that it happens, that it is a cruel and inhumane crime that has
no place in the 21st century and make every parent who even thinks about abusing their children
that there will be no tolerance for this act and they will at best shave their daughters taken into
care and at worst the evil scum responsible for this will spend decades behind bars.
NOT EVEN A SINGLE BLOODY PROSECUTION!
We cannot tip toe around this.
Political correctness cannot allow 66,000 victims to have suffered while society and our government
and legal institutions turned a blind eye.
Religious or cultural traditions cannot be allowed to justify this crime.
These girls have the right to the protection of the law in full measure. Nothing can justify turning a
blind eye to this. Nothing.
This is the link to the petition:
Sign up, pass it on to your friends.
Shine a light on this, raise awareness, add your voice to the call.
Force our government and institutions to get their thumbs out of their backsides and stop this.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
