September 06, 2017: Female Genitilia Mutilation (FGM) is one of the biggest gender issues in the third world nations. It is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as, “all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.”
The WHO has explicitely maintained that there are absolutely no medical benefits of FGM and circumcision.
Asiff Hussein, a journalist who is popular for his pro-FGM beliefs, partially accepts the WHO definition, but turns away from it claiming that there is a lack of knowledge in public domain regarding FGM. He blames the controlled media and propagandists for the lack of research in finding out the medical benefits of the practice.
Hussein’s recent article, published by Canadian based Muslim website in Calgary, defends these “medical benefits.” The author believes that the contemporary feminists are responsible for “denigerating” the practice.
The author claims that Islam justifies the practice of the removal of a layer on the skin of women’s genetilia called the prepuce. This practice, as the author claims, is circumcision rather than genetilia mutiliation!
FGM has come under fire for its cruelty against one gender. While many Islam scholars have clarified that there is no association between FGM and the religion of Islam, the article on the Muslim website says that the Hadith clearly talks about the practice.
The barbaric act of FMG is banned in Canada and other developed western nations, however, UNICEF has reported that 200 million girls are still suffering from forced circumcision all over the world.
