>>WARNING - GRAPHIC<<
The Prophet, Muhammad nstead he encouraged his followers not to perform the most radical form of mutilation (infibulation) [– this would be type III in this diagram-] ……telling them in his sunna not to “overdo it.”
Book 41, Number 5251:Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah:
"…When you circumcise then do not cut severely, since that is better for her and more pleasing to the husband." (Reported by Abu Dawud and Al-Baihaqee and declared Hasan by Shaikh Al-Albani)…”Also:
"Better for the woman and more pleasing for the husband" and that it is "Better of the face and more pleasing to the husband." (Reported by Al-Baihaqee)
Thus Muslims have the practice known as “sunna circumcision.” Muhammad’s statements (sunna) continue to be cited in support of this most Islamic of traditions. According to the shafi school of Islamic law, which is followed by many Muslims, it is an obligation to “circumcise” girls for their own good.
Islam online - Renowned Muslim scholar and Sheik Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, (who is the "spiritual leader" of the Muslim Brotherhood (the largest Muslim organization in the world with umbrella groups like Hamas and the Council of American Islamic Relations -CAIR) explains why he would personally mutilate the genitals of his daughters:
“…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…”97% of Egyptian women (and in some areas 99% of Muslim women) have been lucky enough to have their genitals mutilated as stipulated by the beloved Prophet of Islam.
So the next time you start chanting about the rights of the Religion of Peace, you need to consider that they should be known by their works. The Muslim World is a barbaric place. But it's also barbaric in the West as the UK Guardian reports. Take a moment to follow the link and look at the disturbing video of female genital mutilation from July 25, 2010."I came to the living room and there were loads of women. I later found out it was to hold me down, They bring lots of women to hold the girl down. I thought I was going to be brave so I didn't really need that. I just lay down and I remember looking at the ceiling and staring at the fan.
"I don't remember screaming, I remember the ridiculous amount of pain, I remember the blood everywhere, one of the maids, I actually saw her pick up the bit of flesh that they cut away 'cause she was mopping up the blood. There was blood everywhere."
Some 500 to 2,000 British schoolgirls will be genitally mutilated over the summer holidays. Some will be taken abroad, others will be "cut" or circumcised and sewn closed here in the UK by women already living here or who are flown in and brought to "cutting parties" for a few girls at a time in a cost-saving exercise.
