H.H Dr. Syedna: Stop Female circumcision (Ladkiyon par khatna)

Female circumcision is NOT Islamic - it is an African ritual which only the Bohras follow in the subcontinent. It is cruel, inhuman and undemocratic. A girl's clitoris hood is cut off -without anesthesia in most cases. So her sexual desires are subdued. It is terribly unfair and painful and reinforces the stereotype that Islam does not give equal rights to women. Such a barbaric ritual has no place in a progressive community like the Bohras. So we pray to His Holiness to stop this misogynist ritual,
