Yet another barbaric Muslim practice is beginning to seep into western nations as the practice of “ironing” girls’ breasts is being found among Muslim African immigrant communities.
The practice entails placing heavy, heated stones on girl’s chest in an effort to stunt her development. The painful and dangerous practice is often done several times a month, depending only how quickly a girl’s breasts are developing.
The practice is supposedly done to keep girls from attracting the attention of men and to keep the girls from being raped or sexually assaulted for as long as possible, according to The Guardian.
With the onslaught of African immigrants who don’t have any intention of integrating, the UK is beginning to see this practice seeping into British society. The Brits have found at least 1,000 cases of ironing.
“Community workers in London, Yorkshire, Essex and the West Midlands have told the Guardian of cases in which pre-teen girls from the diaspora of several African countries are subjected to the painful, abusive and ultimately futile practice,” the Guardian reported.
A local activist told the paper that there have been up to 15 to 20 cases of breast-ironing in Croydon. “It’s usually done in the UK, not abroad like female genital mutilation (FGM),” the activist said. “Sometimes they do it once a week, or once every two weeks, depending on how it comes back.”
One African immigrant said they begin the ironing “at the first sign of puberty.”
“I took the stone, I warmed it, and then I started massaging [my daughter’s chest],” she told the Guardian. “And the stone was a little bit hot. When I started massaging, she said: ‘Mummy, it’s hot!'”
The immigrant also told the paper that police questioned her about the ironing but released her without charge.
Sadly, this soft treatment is also a problem — especially in the UK. British police are so afraid of being called “racists” that they never arrest or charge immigrants no matter how evil the crime.
Indeed, one victim of this abuse pointed out just that problem.
“The British people are so polite in the sense that when they see something like that, they think of cultural sensitivities,” victim Margaret Nyuydzewira, said. “But if it’s a cultural practice that is harming children … any harm that is done to a little girl, whether in public or in secrecy, that person should be held accountable.”
So, add this abusive “ironing” to the so-called “honor killings,” the rape gangs, and the no-go zones that western nations are importing from Muslim countries.
