Tatbir is a Muslim Ritual of Cutting Children from the ear to the top of their head. Newsboy: On the Day of Ashura, a ritual called Tatbir (also here), was performed where a dagger was used to cut Obama’s scalp from ear to ear— leaving that telltale, damning keloidal scar which runs from ear to his crown to his other ear.
