← Kadra attacked in public

hanche's Avatar Jump to comment 46 by hanche

For what it's worth, at least some of the thugs have been arrested, and yes, there is serious talk about expelling them.

As to the motivation for the attack, it is not at all clear that it has anything to do with support for female genital mutilation, though that is the topic that made Kadra famous some years ago. It is more likely related to her recent statement, alluded to on the top of this page, that "the Koran's views on women needed to be reinterpreted".

Not that this makes it any more acceptable, of course.
