FGM

Summary:


Of the four Sunni schools of sharia, it is the Shafi’is who have said that circumcision of girls is compulsory. TheReliance of the Traveller, a respected manual of Shafi’i jurisprudence, states  “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the clitoris” (section e4.3).  [The English translation by Nuh Ha Mim Keller (certified by Al-Azhar University) disguises the true meaning of the Arabic text by offering the following bogus English ‘translation’: “For men it consists of removing the prepuce from the penis, and for women, removing the prepuce (Ar. Bazr) of the clitoris (n: not the clitoris itself, as some mistakenly assert).” ]

The people.

 

I have lived in Indonesia for 5 years. It is a segregated country with 26 different provinces (regions) that are occupied by different peoples with different religions and different beliefs going back thousands of years: the Javanese, the Batak (North Sumatra), the Minang (West Sumatra), the Malayu (South East Sumatra), and the Balinese (Bali). Each of these different peoples have distinct traditions and have constantly fought for superiority within Indonesia and in some regions,. Still today there are in- house disagreements.

Summary: 

Female Genital Mutilation ( FGM ) "parties" are taking place across the UK, a charity has warned. More and more girls in Britain are being subjected to the illegal practice as midwives are reportedly flown in from across Africa. According to the Black Health Initiative in Leeds, nurses are coming to the UK to carry out the procedure on multiple girls. Then, they claim, a "celebration" is thrown by the families. The charity raised concerns after NHS figures show more than 8,000 girls

Summary: 

The failure to successfully prosecute a single case of female genital mutilation (FGM) in the UK is a "national scandal", the Commons home affairs select committee has said.

In a report, the MPs said it was "beyond belief" that no-one had been convicted of FGM, 30 years after the practice was made illegal in the UK.

Summary: 

In the UK the true number of girls and women affected by FGM is unknown although there is an estimate that 137,000 have been affected in England and Wales.  And I know that in Scotland, all 32 local authorities have dealt with cases of FGM. FGM is the partial or total removal of external female genitalia, which includes the clitoris, labia, and the fatty tissue over the pubic bone and the vaginal opening.

Summary: 

During a recent conference in the Swedish city of Gothenburg on the topic of female genital mutilation (FGM), experts dealing with the issue in Europe revealed some alarming facts and trends. Not only is the number of girls falling victim to the cultural tradition increasing, but they are getting younger as well. To make matters worse, many professionals working in health and social services in European countries do not report cases of sexual disfigurement fearing that, if they were to do so, they might be singled out as ‘racists’.

Summary: 

Today at his first Mayor's Question Time at City Hall UKIP London Assembly member Peter Whittle asked the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, about the prospect of bringing about the prosecution of the perpetrators of female genital mutilation (FGM) and asked whether he would ensure that the Metropolitan Police Service bring to bear the full force of the law on the perpetrators of this appalling practice.

In his question Peter Whittle noted that between 2009 and 2014, 4,000 women and girls in London were treated for FGM, yet, despite being a crime, of which there is a much increased public awareness, there has yet to be a successful prosecution.

Summary: 

Too often those who carry out forced cutting of young boys' genitals escape with gentle admonishment, rather than punishment commensurate with the severity of their actions, writes Dr Antony Lempert of the Secular Medical Forum.

Admin: This applies equally to FGM on girls/women.

Summary: 

In the fatwa of Dar al-Ifta’ al-Misriyyah (6/1986) it says: 

Thus it is clear that female circumcision is prescribed in Islam, and that it is one of the Sunnahs of the fitrah and it has a good effect of moderating the individual’s behaviour

Summary: 

UNITED NATIONS – A disturbing Population Research Bureau report indicates the number of women in the United States at risk of ritual female genital mutilation has doubled in 10 years, in tandem with the increase in immigration from Muslim countries in Africa.

......

While the U.N. and associated groups are working to end the barbaric practice, none of the official reports and statements mentions the fact that Muslim religious leaders and scholars prescribe it. The official line is that there is no direct mention of the practice in the Quran and, hence, no link to Islam. However, Islamic websites direct the reader to numerous scholarly references encouraging the practice.

Summary: 

Taking a girl of approximately five or six years old, pinning her to the ground, grabbing a razor blade, opening her legs and cutting out her clitoris or labia. Something so mind-bogglingly horrifying and nihilistically cruel that it’s scarcely possible to believe it happens at all, but it does. And this week, the government released its first detailed statistical study into the practice in the UK. Reviewing the data, a very clear pattern emerges.
