A Somali immigrant wass under arrest in Dublin after he performed female genital mutilation on a 2-year-old girl in the first reported case of its kind in Ireland.
According to the U.K. Mirror, the unnamed Somali man was arrested Thursday at an apartment in Crumlin, South Dublin. It was also reported that the mother who lived there had two girls under the age of five.
The Somali man, reported to be in his 30s, was placed in custody on suspicion of mutilating a child and could face up to 14 years in prison.
According to the Mirror, the scene was so bad that police had to be dressed head-to-toe in white forensic outfits to examine the apartment.
The practice of female genital mutilation, which is usually associated with adherents of Islam in or from Africa, is usually carried out “as a preparation for marriage or to preserve her virginity,” according to the U.K. National Health Service.
“(Female genital mutilation) is usually carried out on young girls between infancy and the age of 15, most commonly before puberty starts,” the NHS webpage said. “It’s very painful and can seriously harm the health of women and girls. It can also cause long-term problems with sex, childbirth and mental health.”
According to a UNICEF survey, 98 percent of Somali women between the ages of 15 and 49 have experienced genital mutilation. Apparently the practice has been exported to other parts of the world.
It is worth pointing out something here that the mainstream media won’t: Not all cultural practices are created equal. A Somali man did something so utterly foul that none of us could possibly comprehend it — yet it’s done to 98 percent of young women in Somalia.
Could this be imported to the United States too? Given the refugee crisis, don’t be surprised if it’s already here.
