The United States banned Female Genital Mutilation in 1997. A Federal report in 2012 warned that 513,000 women and girls in the United States were at risk for FGM. This is the honor of Islam for which women are murdered and mutilated. And to preserve the honor of Islam, we are told to remain silent about it. It’s not only the abusers and the abused girls who maintain the culture of silence. It’s the authorities and the media that carefully step around the obvious. Just as with Islamic terrorism, a refusal to name the problem makes it impossible to solve.
