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

      Mumbai, India

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,

      No girl should be victim to any mutilation. She's perfect the way she was designed - the way she was born.

      It is a horrible practice. As a devote Bohra Muslim, I sign this petition to put a stop to FGM.

      It is so wrong to do this to females or human. My heart hurts when I saw The Desert Flower movie and read that this is still going on today in different countries.
