Ban Circumcision and Female genital mutilation

by M.A.Hussain Friday, Jun. 24, 2011 at 1:02 AM

It is tragic that we are adopting a barbaric ritual of male circumcision and female genital mutilation that belongs to Iron age in the twenty-first century. From the moment of birth, every child has all the human rights of any other person - including the inviolable right to freedom from non-consensual, non-therapeutic bodily alternation. Muslim and Jew Males and females are being denied their inherent right to keep all the body parts with which they were born. Fixation of Muslims and Jews with physical matters like on diet, bodily cleanliness and circumcision reveal their spiritual improvishment.

Informed medical opinion is now unanimous that circumcision confers no benefits.

Circumcision is a cultural phenomenon that affects 15.3 million children and young adults annually.

In terms of gender, 13.3 million boys and 2 million girls are subjected to the involuntary

removal of part or all of their external sex organs every year.

Their external sex organs cut off for reasons that defy logic and violate basic human rights.

Doctors, parents, and politicians have been misled into thinking that circumcision is beneficial,

necessary, and harmless.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Convention on the rights of the child

and other important international texts don't mention the right to physical integrity,

most probably to avoid interpreting it as a condemnation of male circumcision.

UNICEF never produced any document on male circumcision, and always refused to

open the debate about this subject.

Raise your voice against male circumcision and female genital mutilation.
