This dilemma of multiculturalism is very topical in Australia at the moment with regards to the Aboriginal people living in remote northern communities. Sexual abuse against minors is extremely common, even with children as young as 2 and 3. However, the offenders say that this has always been their tradition. It's become a cultural institution among many communities there. Thus the Australian government is reluctant to take any meaningful steps to safeguard the rights of the victims because it fears being branded "paternalistic" or racist. They are reluctant to be seen as suppressing any aspect of Aboriginal culture, since so much Aboriginal culture has already been lost forever as a result of European settlement.
