Scotland: Muslims scream ‘racism’ over new law to stop female genital mutilation

Summary: 

In an absurd accusation:

A law to tackle female genital mutilation is racially motivated because it excludes intimate piercings and cosmetic surgery, black and Muslim campaigners have claimed.

Any challenge to the abusive practices that are sanctioned in Islam comes with the inevitable parroting of accusations about racism and “Islamophobia.”

In Reliance of the Traveller — a classic manual of Islamic sacred law — female genital mutilation (FGM) is obligatory (e4.3). By contrast, non-Muslims make their own decisions about cosmetic surgery and “intimate piercings.” They are not coerced or forced. No reasonable thinker would make such a comparison. But those who ascribe to the Sharia know full well how mortified Westerners become when they are called “racist,” so they manipulate and take advantage of this, no matter how ridiculous the charge is.

The World Heath Organization points out the serious harm to women and girls from the misogynistic practice of FGM here.
