It’s international news when a female dies during circumcision.
And people get arrested for it.
Police in Egypt have arrested the parents and aunt of a 14-year-old girl who died while undergoing female genital mutilation (FGM).
The doctor who allegedly performed the procedure in the province of Asyut was also held.
All four were detained after the victim’s uncle alerted the authorities, officials told the BBC.
FGM was banned in Egypt in 2008 but the country still has one of the highest rates of the practice in the world.
According to the UN children’s agency, Unicef, 87% of girls and women aged 15 to 49 years in Egypt have undergone FGM, with 50% of Egyptians believing it “is a religious requirement”.
In the latest case, Nada Abdul Maksoud suffered complications after the surgery at a private clinic in the Upper Egyptian governorate of Asyut, the Shorouk News website reported.
The girl’s death caused an outcry from rights groups in Egypt.
The National Council for Childhood and Motherhood and the National Council for Women urged authorities to prosecute those responsible, the state-run website Akhbar el-Yom said.
Egypt criminalised FGM in 2008 and increased penalties for those carrying out the procedures in 2016 following the death of a teenage girl.
Everyone knows about the alleged horrors of FGM.
Of course, it is likely that more boys die in America from MGM than the total global deaths of females during FGM.
Of course, you never hear about that.
The first reason you never hear about that is that Jews promote male genital mutilation and the Jews control the media.
The second reason is that no one gives a shit about boys, and it is considered a good thing if they die.
Every time I hear the media going nuts over a single girl dying from this practice in some shithole, I am reminded of just how completely insane society is.
