Calgary Muslim Website Defends ‘Medical Benefits’ of Female Circumcision

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.

PS. I broke this story on August 15th and while it’s nice to see it getting play in Breitbart a credit would be appreciated as a simple courtesy.

    Wanna end this practice once and for all? Get the Christian patriarchy behind it…

      And ensure they are white Christians.

    Hey, what group of Muslims were trying to tell us recently that FGM is cultural and not a Muslim thing.
    They tried the exact same thing with niqabs and honor killings.

      Yeah, they’re always speaking out of both sides of their mouths. Here’s another example, the Holocaust never happened vs. since the Holocaust was committed by Europeans, Europeans should give Jews land and not Arabs.

    Just what in the hell would a misogynistic muslim journalist, not even a doctor know about female bodies? There are no benefits for female circumcision except maybe goat-humping muslim males might think it is easier to control their women if they have no sexual desire. Also, a reason that muslim women should cover in black tents. The benefit for circumcised males is that it is more hygienic and aesthetically pleasing so better for oral sex , IMHO.

      We should write him a letter and tell him to remove his penis and see how well he enjoys sex after that.

        There was a procedure they were perfecting in the 80’s or 90’s that was for serial sex offenders. It disconnected the nerve cluster at the base of the penis and while you could have sex the guy would feel no pleasure and no friction.

    The Islamic Socialist Republic of Alberta will probably be distributing it as booklets in schools.

    Wynne can even wear her muslim outfit, and can personally hand them out in Ontario schools. And the Toronto Star can a have a feature story from Heather Mallick on how this is a victory for feminism.

    Catfur, this pisses me off that a few journo’s read your blog and take your stuff then report on it with no acknowledgement. I see Candice also reads your website and a few others.

    This feminist organization claims that it has been campaigning against FGM for 25 years. Yet, they are in denial that the practice is connected to religion. (Click on the newsletter link to this subject to see their otherwise worthy campaign tarnished by this bit of dishonesty.)

    Alright then I recommend Rachael Notley to further her “cultural enrichment” & education into Islam by exploring the “benefits” of this practice. Also she will be sure that no “heavy” music will be played otherwise it will be RACIST!
