Increasing numbers of Muslim brides are having taxpayer-funded ‘virginity repair’ operations before marriage. (Daily Mail)
‘I honestly viewed the operation as life-saving’
When Aisha Salim (not her real name) prepared for her arranged marriage in 2007, she had to be a virgin bride.
But the Muslim graduate, from an affluent middle-class family who moved to England from Pakistan two generations ago, had slept with several boyfriends.
Knowing she would have to show her bloodied wedding-night sheets to her in-laws as proof of her virginity, she decided on hymen repair surgery.
‘I honestly viewed it as life-saving,’ she said. ‘If my husband could not prove to his family that I was a virgin, I would be ostracised and sent home in disgrace.
‘My father, who is a devout Muslim, would regard it as the ultimate shame.
‘The entire family could be cast out from their friends and society, and one of my cousins or uncles might kill me to purge them of my sins.’
The half hour hymenoplasty procedure can cost up to Â£4,000 to be done privately
