A world-wide campaign to eradicate female genital mutilation which was launched in Dublin earlier this week has continued to gain traction however, authorities in the UK have threatened anti-FGM activists with prosecution in order to appease offended Muslims.
FGM is thought to affect around 200 million women and girls around the world and up to six thousand in Ireland.
The practice is most common amongst the Muslim community, as while is it not mandatory or prescribed by the Koran, it is encouraged by the Prophet Mohammed.
Up to 6000 women and girls in Ireland are thought to have suffered FGM, mostly from the African-Muslim community.
The problem is far more acute in the UK however, where there were 5000 news cases of FGM in 2017 alone and new case is reported to the NHS every single hour.
While the problem in the UK is endemic, police again have failed in their duties to tackle this barbaric crime against humanity for fear of being politically incorrect.
