Allow traditional practice by parents in circumcising their sons

Individual religious freedom is very much a part of the German constitution especially following the second world war and holocaust.
A court in Cologne has ruled it a criminal act for parents to circumcise their sons, even in a hospital by a doctor. Coupled with failed efforts to ban kosher and halal slaughter of animals, this reeks of similar actions by the Nazi Party on its election in 1933.
In a liberal democracy like Germany this should never be tolerated. The last time people were quiet on the subject, 6 million Jews and millions of others were slaughtered in Nazi concentration camps.
