Oh, and remember, the apologists say it has absolutely nothing to do with Islam. KGS

NOTE: The apologists for Islam also say it’s mostly a N.African “cultural” phenomenon. Tell that to the screaming girls in Kurdistan.

Government Says 41 Percent of Kurdish Women Are Circumcised

ERBIL, Iraqi Kurdistan: A survey by the Kurdistan Minstiry of Health shows that 41 percent of women have gone under the practise of female genuital mutilation (FGM).

The survey was carried out in July this year. The results of the survey were announced during a campaign to raise awareness on violence against women in Kurdistan earlier this week.

Part of the campaign has focused on FGM. The survey by the government shows that mothers are the main party responsible for forcing their daughters experience the painful ritual and then grandmothers and fathers.

The survey’s results show that none of the participants in Dohuk, Kurdistan’s smallest of the three provinces, were circumcised while the highest rate of FGM was in Sulaimai.

Erbil, Kurdistan region’s capital, came between Sulaimani and Dohuk. According to the survey, most of the women were circumcised while they were under five years old.

  1. YES! this practices has nothing to do with Islam. Second it a very new to our Kurdish culture our mothers and Grandmother did not face this issue. if you want to make a point or discuss an issue in general don’t present it with such tasteless sarcasm, you sound like a total redneck

    1. Thin skin you have. Interesting that you’re more upset by supposed sarcasm than appalled by the actual practice. You should vent your anger at your fellow ideologues, not at myself reporting on this atrocious mutilation of women. Oh and by the way, the stoning of women who have been raped is another “Muslim problem”.

      Mohammed approved of the practice for girls. Book 41 (Kitab Al-Adab or “General Behavior”), Hadith 5251 states: “Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to her: Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband”.

      The “spiritual leader” of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi; “It is reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said to a midwife: ‘Reduce the size of the clitoris but do not exceed the limit, for that is better for her health and is preferred by husbands’. The hadith indicates that circumcision is better for a woman’s health and it enhances her conjugal relation with her husband. It’s noteworthy that the Prophet’s saying ‘do not exceed the limit’ means do not totally remove the clitoris… Anyhow, it is not obligatory, whoever finds it serving the interest of his daughters should do it, and I personally support this under the current circumstances in the modern world.”

  2. That is fucking sick im a muslim but i both disagree and hate very law in the muslim religion against women. theyre not objects for fucks sake!

    1. Hi MAN!!!, it’s going to take people like yourself to stand tall against these medieval beliefs, and those who hold them, and demand for a reforming of your religion. Otherwise, the outrages will in fact continue, and with the blessings of your clerics.

  3. Like my name revealed already: I AM TOTALLY CHOCKED!!! What the F#%K! Are we living in the zero century or what, for God sake!!??
    I am glad that I did not grow up in Kurdistan but in Europe! Or else I would have lost my clitoris maybe. What an barbaristic culture on earth is that!! This MUST and SHOULD be STOPPED! Like……. IMMIDIATELY….come on, for real…. Raise moreee awareness to stop thissssssss please. This is not humanly.. Even animals don’t do such stuff, do they.

    A very very very Uppset and Angry Girl after reading this chocking article.

  4. This is a totally bullshit matter. Why to cut the clitoris?? why even the issue of this?? I’m a muslim, but I better say, just get out of the old days, come to the new days… Always you guys post some thing which is relates Islam and Sex. Why!!!???? Can’t you integrate Islam with peace?? always Islam = Sex and Terrorism… why?????

    First of all, this cutting clitoris is a bullshit thing… from my opinion, i will say, Prophet said that probably just because the over enthusiastic parents might totally cut it off and they may make a severe damage which may cause life threat to a girl… Otherwise, it’s a girl’s own matter if she want it or not… common, my sex life is my headache… not my parent’s headache… their headache should be my health…

    And yes, it is completely a personal choice if you cut it or not… who cares?? but the person who published the picture here is a complete nonsense… did you kept any room for this girl’s social life???

    Above all, guys, girls, please do not post any such comment in such a way where Islam relates to sex/terrorism… this mistake every muslims do always…

    1. Muslim Boy, as long as Islam remains in the hands of the four schools of jurisprudence, women will continue to be subjected to ever horror imaginable. It is Muslims themselves that integrate terrorism, murder and mayhem into Islam, not me, I just document it. Turn ever page of the Koran, and what will greet you is one horror after the other that includes open ended calls for the faithful to commit in every age.

      My advice, get angry, get really angry at the Islamic ideology that breeds the mindset that commits such horrors.
