FGM has been outlawed since 2008 but is still widely practised in Egypt, which has one of the highest prevalence rates in the world. Over 90% of women under 50 have experienced it, according to government figures. The removal of all or part of the external genitalia is done in the name of promoting chastity. Some parents see it as a religious duty in spite of a ruling against it. Now-ousted president Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood, tried, while he was in office, to have FGM mandated for every girl and enforced by the government.

CAIR The recent kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian school girls by Islamic extremists is a “disgrace” to Islam, the executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Thursday. “It’s absolutely something that we of the American Muslim community and Muslims worldwide condemn because it’s not something that represents our faith,” said Adam Soltani.”This group, Boko Haram, is doing something that is completely antithetical to the teachings of the Islamic faith and the Islamic faith traditions,” said Soltani. He predicts the kidnappings by the small group of Muslim extremists will negatively impact the perception Americans have of all Muslims.”
Translation courtesy of Mrs Pharaoh: ” The guy has been caught in the act. The men are interrogating him repeatedly asking him what did you do to this girl, rape her? Then they hit him trying to get him to confess to what they saw. They ask her her name which she tells then, then they keep asking her what he has done to her. She refuses to implicate her grandfather and actually denies that it happened.” (Hmm, how does she explain him zipping up his pants when he gets up from her?)
Can al Qaeda be far behind? Oh, thats right, they’ve already reconquered Fallujah.
Most of the 234 Borno schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity have been ferried abroad to Chad and Cameroon after they were married off to sect members on $12 price each, an elder told Daily Trust yesterday. The female students were taken from their hostels at the Government Girls Secondary School Chibok on the night of April 14. About 40 had escaped in the days after the incident, but parents and school authorities said at least 234 of them were yet to be found.
Clarion Project After finding out about the case, U.S. rights groups contacted American Lawyer Kimberly Motley who has been working in Afghanistan for the past five years. Motley was able to raise funds to redeem Nagma and, with the blessings of Nagma’s parents, now intends to put Nagma and her brother into Afghanistan’s National Institute of Music, a school that takes orphans and underprivileged children.
