Michigan Muslim doctor tells court female genital mutilation was religious practice

A female doctor practicing in Livonia, Michigan, who was arrested last week for perpetrating the illegal practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) on young girls, told the federal court today through her lawyer that FGM was part of the religious and cultural practice of an association of Indian Muslim doctors she belongs to. Federal prosecutors responded by pointing out the fact Dr. Nagarwala was well aware what she was doing was illegal because she purposely did the procedures off the books without any records or billing information and performed the procedures at a secret location.
