Dear Tony Mwebia,

today you say via twitter: „FGM is not supported in any major religious texts“

– FGM clearly is an Islamic obligation for all Muslims of Shafii madhhab – and FGM is an Islamic obligation for Shia Dawoodi Bohra.

You continue saying, today: „and moreover many religious leaders believe that this tradition should end“

– Kairo-based al-Azhar has NEVER EVER forbidden FGM Type Ia or FGM Type IV

In short / Abstract
1. FGM is very, very Islamic – and
2. al-Azhar does NOT condemn it.

Yours
Edward von Roy, social worker

“Cease fire has been Declared but the ‘War’ against FGM/C is far from over”

Posted on 09.05.2018 by Tony Mwebia

According to Kenya Demographic and Health Survey (KDHS) 2014 religion has been alluded to as one of the main reasons for FGM/C among the Muslim communities. Majority of Somali women (82 per cent) and men (83 per cent) believe FGM/C is a religious requirement. […]

Muslim leaders delink Islam from female genital mutilation

Deputy Chief Kadhi Rashid Ali Omar said there is a difference between culture and religion saying that pastoralist communities that practice FGM do it in line with their traditions and is not supported by Islamic law. [ That is wrong – in fact, there is no Islam without female genital mutilation / FGM ]

.

Islamic scholars strongly oppose Female circumcision

Islamic scholars in the country have come out strongly to oppose the notion that the religion supports Female circumcision. Led by the deputy Chief Kadhi Rashid Ali Omar, the scholars said that people mostly mistake the cultural practices of the pastoralist communities who are mostly Muslim and assume the Islamic religion also supports the same.

Eines Tages begegnete Mohammed der zum Islam konvertierten muqaṭṭiʿatu l-buẓūr (amputatrice di clitoridi, coupeuse de clitoris, cutter of clitorises), der Frauenbeschneiderin Umm ʿAṭiyya. Die Gottgehorsame befragte den Propheten nach der religiösen Rechtmäßigkeit ihrer täglichen Arbeit und Allahs Sprecher stellte fest:

أشمِّي ولا تنهَكي
ašimmī wa-lā tanhakī
[Cut] slightly and do not overdo it
[Schneide] leicht und übertreibe nicht

Oder Mohammed verkündete den Willen des Himmels so:

اختفضن ولا تنهكن
iḫtafiḍna wa-lā tanhikna
Cut [slightly] without exaggeration
Schneide [leicht] und ohne Übertreibung

Mail von heute 21:47 Uhr von Edward von Roy an Tony Mwebia in Kenia

Hello my brother, thank you very much for your reply,

I am a social worker – as you are.

I am an intactivist (activist against FGM or MGM) based in Germany, Europe.

Zero tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) = zero tolerance even to the less invasive forms of FGM.

Even the ‘mild Sunna’ type of FGM is not mild: it is damaging, painful and a traumatic experience. Perhaps you may have heard about the criminal case of Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, an US-based (female) doctor and Islamic circumciser (FGM) of several seven years old girls.

According to religion (Islam) khitan al-inath (Islamic FGM) is wajib (farD), is a religious obligation – a boy or a girl HAS to be cut (mutilated).

Shafii madhhab of Sunni Islam does NOT difference between a boy or a girl – her or she HAS to be cut. That is fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) – so, if we really want to stop FGM in East Afrika – Shafii madhhab is usual – we have to stop khitan al-inath (sunat perempuan).

.

Let us go away fom the – worth protecting and defending – UDHR (universal declaration of human rights, 10 december 1948) for a moment – let us read the hadith:

.

Hadith. The Prophet said to Umm Atiyya (or: to Umm Habiba)

أشمِّي ولا تنهَكي
ašimmī wa-lā tanhakī
[Cut] slightly and do not overdo it

Or Muhammad said:

اختفضن ولا تنهكن
iḫtafiḍna wa-lā tanhikna
Cut [slightly] without exaggeration

.

Back to the one and indivisable mankind and civilisation (UDHR – 10.12.1948).

Let us STOP any type of FGM – type I, II, III, IV. Any. No cut, no incision, no drop of blood, no pain.

For a girl or a boy. As women and men shall be equal – and have the same full civil rights.

Any ritual circumcision or other ritual injury of the genital of a girl or a boy below the age of eighteen years should be banned on a global level.

Good luck finishing the FGM in Kenya wishes you,

Edward von Roy
