Canadian Muslim Website Publishes Article Claiming ‘Medical Benefits’ of Female Circumcision

by CHRIS TOMLINSON

A Muslim website based in the Canadian city of Calgary has published an article defending the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) claiming that there are medical benefits if part of a woman’s genitals are removed, and saying it is justified by Islam.

The article, written by pro-FGM author and journalist Asiff Hussein, claims that “Misogynists and Feminists” are “denigrating” the practice which he claims has medical benefits for women.

The website’s contributor advocates for the removal of the prepuce, a layer of skin on a woman’s genitals, claiming that the operation is not FGM, but rather “female circumcision” as it does not remove the clitoris.

His definition runs counter to the World Health Organization (WHO) who define FGM as, “all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons”, and add that there are no known health benefits. full story
