Sara Bronfman’s Muslim hubby Basit Igtet supports ‘female pubic branding’; does he support ‘female genital mutilation?’

[This report has been developed from information provided from sources. For their protection, they are unnamed. It is up to the reader to judge whether the information presented is factual or not.]

An earlier post speculated on whether Sara Bronfman and her husband, Basit Igtet, may be planning the hot iron branding of their daughter, Safia.

They are supporting the branding of other people’s daughters through their generous donations to the works of Keith Raniere, creator of DOS ceremonies where a cauterizing hot iron brands his initials [KR] on the pubic region of young women – scarring them permanently.

As a Muslim, Mr. Igtet may support female genital circumcision [tahara/khifaḍ] AKA ‘female genital mutilation,’ which many Muslims think is a religious rite for the welfare and protection of women and society.

Mr. Igtet is in close contact with the leaders of the female branding group DOS [Dominant Over Submissive].

Sara Bronfman, as a devotee of Mr. Raniere, would certainly submit her daughter to the hot-iron branding of Mr. Raniere’s initials on her daughter’s pubic region, if she is ordered to do so. She may already have been branded herself.

She would be a hypocrite indeed to support human branding of other young women – the process of branding is dependent on her and her sister, Clare Bronfman’s money – and not support branding her own daughter.

Mr. Igtet clearly supports branding young women – since he claims to be a human rights’ activist – and has not spoken up against this practice introduced by Mr. Raniere.

The fact that he says nothing about the practice of branding – while his wife and sister-in-law Clare – fund the organization that does the branding – shows he believes in the practice of pubic branding of young women and girls, regardless of how he feels about female genital mutilation.

Lauren Salzman has admitted to human branding in San Francisco. She is branded herself.

Any assertion by Mr. Igtet that he knows nothing about it, or that it is not a true – is a stupid falsehood on the part of whoever says it.

All he has to do is examine the hot-iron branding of women he has been with in the last few days for unequivocal proof.

Lauren Salzman will do nicely as proof positive since she has already publicly admitted she is branded at a meeting in San Francisco.

Don’t know Mr. Igtet or his wife … but your statement that FGM is a Muslim religious rite or that it has anything to do with Islam. Totally the opposite. FGM is a problem in certain parts of Africa regardless of religion. this includes Christians, Muslims, and even Pagans.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
