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.
