The barbaric practice of female circumcision has indeed made inroads into Islamic circles, no longer being an exclusive cultural phenomenon. This is the reason why this practice needs to be rejected outright, the poor girl almost bled to death after being subjected to the brutal procedure.
“An unconscious 16-year-old girl was rushed to the Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba on Sunday with a life-threatening genital hemorrhage. The cause, doctors were stunned to discover, was circumcision. […]
The girl was rushed into surgery where she was found to be suffering from severe sharp-force trauma. Her condition has since been stabilized. A quick inquiry by the emergency room attending, Dr. Alex Rabinowitz, determined that the girl had been forced to undergo the horrifying procedure by her family, who reside in a Bedouin community in the Negev.
“We haven’t seen a case like this is over 10 years. We thought the practice had died out,” Prof. Arnon Witznitzer, director of Soroka’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Ward, told Yedioth Ahronoth. “Clearly, despite our assumption that this no longer occurs in Israel, some are still practicing it and they are doing their best to keep it under wraps,” added Soroka’s public relations officer.
While the Islamic Qur’an, Hadiths and the Sunna do not directly call for a female to be subjected to such a mutilation of their sexual organ, their holy books do however help to promote such thinking since they depict the woman as being devious, and untrustworthy. Such middle age barbarism should be discouraged as well as stamped out in every sector of the globe. More here. *L* KGS
