An analysis of Britain's National Health Service (NHS) statistics has found that a case of female genital mutilation (FGM) is either treated or discovered every hour in Britain.
Though the practice of FGM, which is performed mainly in African and Middle Eastern nations, has been illegal in the UK since 1985, the problem was assessed by medics in the UK every 61 minutes between April 2015 and May 2016.
During this period, there were 8 656 occasions when women or girls attended hospitals or doctors’ surgeries and female circumcision was reported as being the cause of the intervention.
The figures show that, on average, new cases of FGM are discovered every 92 minutes. But to date there have been no convictions. The first prosecutions took place in 2015 against a doctor for performing FGM and another man for aiding and abetting; both were found not guilty.
The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women expressed concern in July 2013 that there had been no FGM-related convictions in the UK. The committee asked the government to “ensure the full implementation of its legislation on FGM.
Despite the UN-sponsored international day of zero tolerance to FGM last year, the UN’s human rights chief, Zeid bin Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein, has not yet commented on the predominantly Muslim practice.
The Jordanian prince has, instead, spoken out about US gun laws, claiming that laws respecting Americans’ right to bear arms “lack rational justification”.
Also recently, he wrongly accused Myanmar of committing crimes against humanity for alleged human-right abuses of so-called Rohingya – Bengali-Muslim illegals in Myanmar – based on flimsy evidence gathered by Muslim staffers of UNHRC from the interviews with a few Bengali-Muslim refugees in Bangladesh.
The Rohingya refugee reports seem to be intended to manipulate the emotions of ignorant mass media consumers, who do not understand the history and complex geopolitical context of Buddhist Myanmar and the crowded Muslim Bangladesh.
In spite of extensive research carried out on the ground in Myanmar by independent researchers such as Rick Heizman, which extensively and exhaustively document ethnic cleansing by Rohingya Muslims against poor Buddhist peasants, the UNHRC and other so-called human rights organisations which are shaping the international media narrative, have simply relayed blanket accusations of “genocide”.
Incidentally, these accusations are made by the very organisations committing atrocities, namely the organised terrorist gangs of the Rohingya insurgency.
