Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Culture ‘Never An Excuse’ To Harm Girls With Genital Mutilation

AHA Foundation Founder Ayaan Hirsi Ali was featured on Tucker Carlson reacting to a Detroit surgeon who is being charged with performing genital mutilation of a young girl in the ER.

Ali, who was subjected to the grisly practice in Somalia, said Dr. Jumana Nagarwala must be punished for her alleged actions.

Young girls are taken either overseas or to states without a ban on the practice to have their private parts surgically mutilated. Watch the clip here:

    Thank you, Ayaan for exposing this horrendous practice to us in the U.S. I have informed my family, friends, and my State and federal legislators to the evils of FGM…and demanded investigations related to it. Kudos to you and your foundation for your hard work in exposing this culturally abhorrent practice.

    As progressive as the world presents itself, it is appalling that this barbaric custom, perpetrated in the name of any religion, should not be allowed in a civil society. I first became aware of this practice while working in an Islamic country in1978. You are doing a great service to the women and young girls you are able to reach. Keep up your struggle.

    Thank you for your good work, Ms Ali and for speaking out on Fox. Have you been on EWTN and TBN also?

    Keep up the good work!

    Thank-you Ayaan and your foundation for this very important work you are doing. I am from Canada and would be very interested in volunteering for your foundation here? This practice makes me sick to my to my stomach and is hard to believe we are looking the other way and letting it happen. I would love to help make a difference.

    You went on Fox, now go on with Rachel Maddow and talk at length about women’s issues. To reach the most people you will have to walk down both sides of the aisles with the most influential, most listened to commentators. If there are people who are blocking bills in the states, please publish their names so we can write letters or make phone calls.

    Thank you for all the work you do. I was able to see you talk in Beverly Hills in February and you were fantastic. I brought books thinking you were going to do a signing but maybe next time. I also wanted to give you a link to an article written by a friend about her journey to America and leaving Islam. Its called Walking by Moonlight: My Journey Out of Islam. I hope you and others will read it. Thank you again for all the work and please keep it up

    If anyone deserved a donation it’s you, next month. Thank you for all you do

  14. Hello Ayan,
    Remember we met on a tv program by ARTE in London.Must have been 1997…
    I am the French lawyer who started prosecution of parents and perpetrators in France since 1982! Many of whom were sent behind solid bars for years. Over here we have no special law prohibiting fgm but I use the general law forbidding to maim someone , furthermore children.
    So I am pleased to read that at last some people in the US act as should.
    Why do people still beat around the bush about matters like “forced marriage”: it’s nothing less than the rape of a child or a teeager organised by their own parents.
    Best wishes Ayan!
