FGM. Female Genital Mutilation, is a Islamic authorised form of child abuse.
The pain and horror that young girls go through during one of these operations,
is nothing compared to the devastating trauma, physical pain, medical complications
and, at times, death, which follow.
The horrifying practice, meant to “promote virtue” in Muslim girls and women is
another way in which the Muslim world tries to subjugate women.
In Egypt, the practice was outlawed after it led to several deaths of young girls,
yet the Muslim Brotherhood, as well as other Muslim Egyptian leaders are fighting
to legalise the practice once more.
Yusef Al-Badri, one of the Egypt’s most prominent preachers explains that the
practice is “ordered by shariah [religious law] from Allah.”
It is hard enough to fight the horrible suffering of many populations in the world.
It’s even harder when those causing the suffering claim that their inhumane
practices were ordained by God.
This is a ghastly, yet important video that needs to be seen.
Pictures talking louder than words
