Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is in jail without bond after appearing before a federal judge Monday, April 17, USA Today reported.

"This is clear and convincing evidence," U.S. Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub told the court, "that (Nagarwala) poses a danger to the community."

Genital mutilation cuts off the external female genitalia, an Islamic ritual that is commonly practiced in Muslim countries – and now in the West.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)Nagarwala has admitted that she cut the two girls, both age seven, but her attorney defended the action as a religious ceremony. The physician was arrested last week as she tried to board a plane headed to Kenya.

Genital mutilation is also a federal crime, hence Nagarwala's appearance in a federal courtroom.

Gary Bauer of American Values points out that millions of American Muslim girls are in danger of being subjected to the practice against their will.

"There have been estimates made that hundreds of thousands of underage Muslim girls may be at risk of this mutilation in various Muslim communities around the country," Bauer tells OneNewsNow.surgical instruments 1

Elsewhere in the USA Today story, prosecutors told the court they are aware of three more victims from Michigan in addition to the 7-year-olds, who are from Minnesota.

The story quoted a retired Muslim physician, who opposes genital mutilation and who said the Muslim community in Minnesota knows to go to Detroit for the procedure. 

There's already widespread agreement that immigrants should be screened before they're allowed into the United States, says Bauer. 

"But I've been arguing that we should not allow people to come into the country who follow cultural and other ideas that are inconsistent with the values of our constitutional republic," he says.

The sickening mutilation of two girls by a Muslim doctor is an example of that, he adds.
