Stop Female Genital Mutilation

This is clearly horrible and only supported by those sick feeble minds who feel a woman has no right or understanding about her own body parts.

Now for those who dont know Female genital mutilation involves the removal of the clitoris, inner-and-outer lips of the vagina, and the sewing or stapling together of the two sides of the vulva leaving only a small hole to pass urine and menstruate – depending on the type.Typically FGM is performed with a razor blade on girls between the ages of four and 12, traditionally without anaesthetic.

Seriously this practice needs to be put end. Imagine the horrible pain and trauma our little girls go through.

This procedure is done to basically curb a woman’s sexual desire or to make sure that her virginity is intact till the time she gets married. It has absolutely no health benefits and the same is confirmed by WHO.

This procedure has severe physical and mental side effects. A woman can suffer trauma, depression and fear having intercourse. Physically she can suffer pain during passing urine, painful intercourse, life risk during the time of child birth.

No Religion in reality supports this type of practice. It is just a cultural practice. And seriously its high time people realise the difference between culture and religion.

This hideous crime under the false pretext of religion needs to be put to end. What do you think about it? Please do comment and share your opinions about this issue. Remember every single say and opinion matters. Its our voice that can support those who have suffered and help many from suffering the same fate.

  1. I totally agree with you on this. Imagine the pain and suffering innocent children have to face, all in the name of reducing sexual desires and keeping virginity intact??!!! I believe the most important thing here is to give your female child a proper sex orientation and with the help of God they’ll be guided right. Female Genital mutilation is a barbaric act and needs to be stopped world wide.

    1. It is a horrible practice carried out worldwide. I am an Indian and recently came to know this quite a common practice in India as well and was shocked. This is horrible and needs to be stopped. The only country as far as my knowledge is which has banned it is US.

      1. I am from Himachal married in Konkan committee, My in-laws are from Punjab, Konkan and Bengal. So this is for me first time hearing such practice. As you mentioned Dawoodi Bohra Community may be this happening in one religion…but yes it’s really sad to hear this in today’s time.

      2. Yes basically this a practice widely practiced in African communities, some countries in middle east and also certain communities all over the world. This practice is banned in US and I feel it needs to banned all over. Now certain Christian communities, certain muslim communities and one of the jewish community still practice it. Its has no religious backup just some madeup proofs and people practice it under the name of culture.

      1. As far media is concerned, I am an ex-media person… Media in today world is about TRP, the issue you mentioned is happening in one community, but it’s not part of whole India…so as far I know media will not get into this matter until and unless someone raise this issue and make it public. And behind the doors, today’s media is run by political parties. So definitely they will not care about such matters. It’s sad but true.

      2. I wish such issues get raised. And attention be given to them. Yes such practices are carried out secretly but its high time people who have suffered such fate come out in public and oppose such practices and help prevent the future generations to go through it.

    1. Circumcision is not like female genital mutilation at all. . Muslims circumcise little boys for health reasons along with it being a religious act. . It is a necessity for little boys & it dates back to centuries ago to our Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). .

      1. Veryberry its true. The female circumcision is horrible and has health hazards, male circumcision doesnt have any health hazards and actually reduces chances of sexually transmitted diseases.

      2. Savitha this is what i found on google
        There is some evidence that circumcision has health benefits, including: A decreased risk of urinary tract infections. A reduced risk of some sexually transmitted diseases in men. Protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners

      3. And male circumcision is not as painful as the female circumcision. Also male circumcision doesnt possess threat to life. Female Kids have died facing such mutilations and some have serious life threat during giving birth..
