Remember, citizen: All Cultures Are Equal,

and if you disagree you're a racist and a bigot.  And other unpleasant things.
Federal agents arrested a second doctor and his wife Friday in a widening conspiracy involving female genital mutilation and members of a Muslim sect.

Dr. Fakhruddin Attar is accused of letting Dr. Jumana Nagarwala perform mutilations at his Burhani Medical Clinic on Farmington Road. His wife, office manager Farida Attar, also was arrested and is accused of helping Nagarwala perform the mutilations, according to a 14-page complaint unsealed Friday in federal court.

Question: why feds?  Why not state authorities arresting them on this?

I see two possibilities.
1) The victims were from Minnesota which makes this an interstate case. Underage females being transported across state lines to have their genitals mutilated sounds like the type of case the FBI would be involved in.

2) Local authorities in that part of Michigan may be sympathetic to Muslims and willing to look the other way...

While Farmington is only 20-25 minutes away from Dearborn Mi the demographics are quite different. I dont think muslims would have much political horsepower there. Very many Doctors in the metro area are mideastern or Indian and are found in every community.
