    Female genital mutilation involves ritual intimate cutting, sometimes without anaesthetic

    LONDON: A UK court has banned an Indian-origin family from flying their baby daughter to India because she is at risk of being subjected to an "utterly unacceptable" genital mutilation procedure.

    A judge at Manchester County and Family Court ruled yesterday that the child, who will turn two this year, is at risk because religious and cultural pressure had overridden her mother's "maternal instinct".

    Social workers in the UK believe three other girls from the family, which cannot be named for legal reasons, had been subjected to a similar procedure.

    Female genital mutilation (FGM), also known as female circumcision, involves ritual intimate cutting, sometimes without anaesthetic, and has been banned in the UK.

    Judge Robert Jordan made an "FGM protection order" in Manchester after a private family court hearing, 'Manchester Evening News' reported.

    The judge was told that the baby's three older sisters had previously been taken to India so that FGM could be carried out on them. He made the protection order after concluding that the little girl was also at risk and needed protecting.

    "The effect of the cultural pressure overrode the mother's maternal instinct. As a consequence of religious and cultural pressure the mother facilitated the mutilation of her children," he noted.


    "That cultural pressure still exists in their country of origin and undoubtedly in this country," he added.

    FGM protection orders came into force in Britain three years ago and give police and local authorities power to intervene to prevent such procedures. Parents can be barred from taking children abroad and passports can be seized and face prosecution if they breach it.

    According to UK research, FGM is less common in India and is more prevalent in around 28 African countries and in parts of the Middle and Far East.

    In Britain, communities that have been identified as at risk of FGM include Somali, Kenyan, Ethiopian, Sierra Leonean, Sudanese, Egyptian, Nigerian, Eritrean, Yemeni, Kurdish and Indonesian women and girls.

    It is believed to be a way of ensuring virginity and chastity and is used to safeguard girls from sex outside marriage and from having sexual feelings.

    Although FGM is practised by secular communities, it is most often claimed to be carried out in accordance with religious beliefs.

    I though India was a civilized country? Female genital mutilation is a shocker the more I read about India the more I understand why my partner was sexually assaulted in India and the more I hate the country.

    I didn't know this practice existed in India. I know that female genital mutilation exists in some African countries. It is barbaric and medieval. A woman is scarred for life.

    In South Asia it's only done by Bohras. Apparently its because they originate from Yemen where the practise is common, and they still haven't given it up after 100s of years of being in the subcontinent

    Wow, Afghanistan more progressive than UK, Norway, Sweden etc.

    FGM is a crime against humanity, it truly is despicable and I have read countless texts that it has nothing to do with Islam, but rather is a cultural practice originating in North Africa and brought to South Asia by migrating Kenyan Muslim community.

    Clearly he is aiming for a reaction, here is the correct map as per UNWHO, IOM and the one used by Home Office:

    Female circumcision isn't an Islamic thing. The ppl who practice it are misguided no matter their religion.

    This is inaccurate as well. Indonesia has a high rate but isn't highlighted here. Also Kurds do it a lot so you'd expect Turkey and Iran to be shaded

    OK I Think There Is A Problem With That Map.I Spent A Good Part Of My Childhood In Saudi Arabia and UAE And Had Multiple Arab Friends.Never Did I Once Hear About Female Circumcision Or Mutilation.

    Fully Agreed Actually If There Was A Place For Female Genital Mutilation In Islam Then All Those Islamic Countries Would Be Shaded 100%.
