468. Islamische FGM durch Ärztin in Michigan

Stoppt selbst die geringst invasive FGM

Die WHO-Klassifikation zur weiblichen Genitalberstümmelung (FGM) muss erhalten bleiben: Nein zu den Versuchen der Straffreistellung der Islamic FGM (Chitan al-inath, indones.: sunat perempuan), etwa der sogenannten milden Sunna, überall auf der Welt. Von Gabi Schmidt und Edward von Roy.

Ob als Prof. Karl-Peter Ringel mit Ass. Jur. Kathrin Meyer (§ 226a StGB – Sonderstraftatbestand der Frauenbeschneidung & verfassungswidrige Ungleichbehandlung (2014))[1] oder ob als Gutachterin zum 70. djt Prof. Dr. Tatjana Hörnle (Verhandlungen des 70. Deutschen Juristentages Hannover 2014 Bd. I: Gutachten Teil C: Kultur, Religion, Strafrecht – Neue Herausforderungen in einer pluralistischen Gesellschaft)[2], in immer neuen Wellen branden die Versuche der Aufweichung der WHO-Klassifikation[3] zur weiblichen Genitalverstümmelung (FGM) heran, die Versuche der Straffreistellung der irgendwie geringer invasiven Formen der Mädchenbeschneidung.

Hier haben Sozialpädagogen und Sozialarbeiter unzweideutig Stellung zu beziehen: Die Genitalbeschneidung muss global verboten bleiben bzw. werden, einerlei, ob der junge Mensch ein Mädchen ist oder ein Junge. Denn völlig altersentsprechend ist auch ein 12, vierzehn oder 16 Jahre alter junger Mensch nicht in der Lage, die Folgen der FGM oder MGM auf Gesundheit, Sexualität oder Partnerschaft abzuschätzen. Unabhängig davon kann auch eine Infektion nach einem Skalpellschnitt oder Nadelstich, kann auch die sogenannte milde Sunna zu schweren Komplikationen bis hin zum Tod führen. Deshalb: Keine Beschneidung unter achtzehn.[4]

Überall auf der Welt muss die Mädchenbeschneidung verboten werden und illegal bleiben und muss ein Zuwiderhandeln geahndet und bestraft werden, auch im amerikanischen Land der begrenzten Unmöglichkeiten.

In den Vereinigten Staaten haben sich im Vorjahr (2016) Dr. Kavita Shah Arora, beruflich tätig im Fachbereich Frauenheilkunde und Geburtshilfe am MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, und Dr. Allan Joel Jacobs, Professor für Fortpflanzungsmedizin an der Stony Brook Universität, im US-Bundesstaat New York, engagiert für das klitze- klitze-, klitzekleine Beschneiden des Geschlechtsorgans US-amerikanischer Mädchen ins Zeug gelegt (Female genital alteration: a compromise solution). Sie empfehlen eine Sichtweise und einen neuen Begriff: Statt, wie es die WHO-Klassifikation festlegt, rituelle weibliche Genitalbeschneidungen, auch die geringer invasiven, ausnahmslos als Verstümmelung (female genital mutilation, FGM) zu bezeichnen, sollen wir von Umgestaltung oder Veränderung sprechen, englisch alteration (female genital alteration, FGA).

Nicht die kinderfeindliche Praxis verbieten, sondern das störende Vokabular erneuern: Vom Verstümmeln zum Verändern. De minimis („um Kleinigkeiten“) behandelt das Rechtsprinzip, Bagatellen nicht den Tatbestand einer Norm erfüllen zu lassen, damit keiner gegen sie klagen kann. Leitsätze sind De minimis non curat lex („Das Recht kümmert sich nicht um Kleinigkeiten“) und De minimis non curat praetor („Der Strafrichter kümmert sich nicht um Kleinigkeiten“). Uns in Deutschland erinnert das an gewisse „rein symbolische Bagatellverletzungen“, die der Trierer Strafrechtsprofessor Prof. Dr. Mark Alexander Zöller offensichtlich straffrei gestellt wissen will (Die Strafbarkeit der Genitalverstümmelung als Gesetzessymbolik? In: Festschrift für Bernd Schünemann zum 70. Geburtstag am 1. November 2014; Mitherhausgeberin: Tatjana Hörnle).

„Zudem ist mit Blick auf die Wortwahl des Gesetzgebers erkennbar, dass es sich um negative Veränderungen von einigem Gewicht handeln muss. Damit scheiden rein symbolische Bagatellverletzungen, kosmetisch motivierte Eingriffe wie „Schönheitsoperationen“ im Genitalbereich oder dem Modebewusstsein entspringende Intimpiercings aus dem objektiven Tatbestand des § 226a StGB aus.″ (Mark A. Zöller, Seite 733)

Den beiden amerikanischen Legalisierern der Sunna-Mädchenbeschneidung Dr. Kavita Shah Arora und Dr. Allan Jacobs gehe es nicht etwa darum, am kindlichen Genital für eine religiös gebotene bzw. kulturadäquate klitzekleine Verstümmelung (genital mutilation, FGM) zu sorgen. Vielmehr soll eine elterlich gewünschte De-minimis-Veränderung (genital alteration, FGA) am Geschlechtsorgan des weiblichen Kindes möglich sein. Gravierende Formen von FGM pardon FGA, so legt es der Aufsatz (Female genital alteration: a compromise solution) nahe, solle der Rechtsstaat nach wie vor verhindern. Als Gesetzgeber, Arzt oder überhaupt als US-Bürger müsse man hingegen Verständnis dafür haben, dass „kulturelle und religiöse Verpflichtungen“ (cultural and religious obligations) nun einmal zu erfüllen seien.

Um den kulturellen Überzeugungen gerecht zu werden und gleichzeitig die körperliche Gesundheit der Mädchen zu schützen, schlagen wir eine Kompromisslösung vor, in der liberale Staaten diese De-minimis-FGA, in Anerkennung der Erfüllung kultureller und religiöser Verpflichtungen, rechtlich zulassen, hingegen jene Formen der FGA ächten, die gefährlich sind, weil sie signifikante sexuelle oder reproduktive Dysfunktionen verursachen. […]

liberale Regierungen sollten diese De-minimis-Verfahren ermöglichen, die schließlich nicht mehr Auswirkungen haben als andere kulturell akzeptierte Verfahren, wie sie bei Minderjährigen als ästhetische Verbesserung durchgeführt werden. Schließlich werden wir argumentieren, dass die Etikettierung dieser De-minimis-Verfahren als „Verstümmelung“ kulturell unsensibel ist, diskriminierend für die Frauen und dass sie keine Menschenrechtsverletzung darstellen. Dazu bieten wir eine abgestufte Argumentation und eine Kompromisslösung an […]

viele muslimische Gelehrte klassifizieren FGA als „Sunna“ oder Praxis, wie sie vom Propheten Muhammad begründet wurde. […]

wir alle müssen endlich eine nuanciertere Position einnehmen […]

Die [in den mädchenbeschneidenden Milieus] hier und da vorzufindende Kultur des Schweigens ist zurückzuführen auf ein Misstrauen gegenüber den globalen Anti-FGA-Kampagnen, die als „sensationsgierig, ethnozentrisch, rassistisch, kulturell unsensibel und unzulässig vereinfachend“ wahrgenommen werden.[5]

Michigan 2017, offensichtlich erstmals in der Geschichte der USA befasst sich der Strafprozess um die hauptberufliche Notärztin und klandestine Ritualbeschneiderin Dr. Jumana F. Nagarwala (United States of America v. JUMANA NAGARWALA) mit dem bestehenden Verbot der weiblichen Genitalverstümmelung 18 USC 116 (female genital mutilation).[6]

Mindestens schafiitisch (Fiqh nach Imam asch-Schafii), möglicherweise auch hanbalitisch schreibt der sunnitische Islam die weibliche Genitalverstümmelung als zwingende religiöse Pflicht vor (wāǧib (واجب), wadschib, anglisiert wajib; Synonym: farḍ (فرض), zu: farīḍa, Religionspflicht).[7] Die islamische Mädchenbeschneidung heißt Chitan al-inath, ḫitān al-ināṯ (ختان الإناث) oder Chatna (ختنة) ḫatna, indonesisch und malaiisch: sunat perempuan bzw. sunat pada wanita, ferner sagt man ḫifāḍ bzw. ḫafḍ, wörtl. Einsenken oder Herabtiefen, oder auch: ḫitān al-banāt, wörtlich Beschneidung der Töchter oder der Mädchen ((البنات), Tochter ist bint (بنت). Doch gibt Islamic FGM auch bei manchen Schiiten, beispielsweise bei der eher kleinen Strömung der siebener-schiitischen Dawudi Bohra (anglis. Dawoodi Bohra), das sind etwa eine Million Menschen hauptsächlich in der westlichen indischen Provinz Gujarat und der pakistanischen Stadt Karatschi, ferner in Nairobi und Mombasa, Kenia, auf Bali in Indonesien sowie in Australien und den USA.[8] Zum Vergleich: in Indonesien leben 260 Millionen Menschen, davon 225 Millionen überwiegend vom Fiqh nach Imam asch-Schafii geprägte Muslime. Auch die Kurden, soweit sunnitisch, folgen der schafiitischen Madhhab und entsprechend kennt Kurdistan die islamisch begründete weibliche Genitalverstümmelung. Und während nur die Schafiiten gleichsam zwischen Jungen und Mädchen nicht unterscheiden und männliche wie weibliche Beschneidung zur religiösen Pflicht erklären,[9] so befürworten alle vier sunnitischen Rechtsschulen die Beschneidung von Frauen; den Malikiten gilt die FGM als Prophetentradition (Sunna) und damit als empfehlenswert, für die Hanafiten wie auch für manche Hanbaliten ist sie edel, ehrenwert (makruma; honourable action, meritorious, noble deed).[10]

Die 44-jährige Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, eine US-amerikanische Muslima und Angehörige der schiitischen Strömung der Dawudi Bohra, arbeitet als Notärztin am Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, Bundesstaat Michigan, USA. Nicht an ihrem Arbeitsplatz, sondern an einer Klinik im benachbarten Livonia (Michigan), so der strafrechtliche Vorwurf, soll sie die Geschlechtsorgane zweier etwa sieben Jahre alter Mädchen aus rituellen Gründen verletzt haben. Was genau im Februar dieses Jahres die Medizinerin aus Northville, Michigan, den beiden Siebenjährigen aus dem US-Staat Minnesota am Geschlechtsteil eingestochen, eingeschnitten oder abgeschnitten hat, ist Gegenstand der Ermittlungen, es könnte sich unter anderem auch um eine FGM Typ II handeln,[11] das bedeutet Schamlippen(teil)amputation, sowie eine Verletzung der Klitorisvorhaut. Bei Inzision (Einscheiden) der Klitorisvorhaut wäre das eine FGM Typ IV, bei Amputation von Gewebe eine FGM Typ Ia. Einige Beschneider, auch Beschneiderinnen, sollen in der Lage sein, derartig geschickt und damit ohne spätere Narbenbildung zu arbeiten, dass man die FGM Typ Ib Amputation oder Teilamputation der Klitoris nicht auf den ersten Blick erkennen kann.[12]

Man mache sich nichts vor, die FGM, auch die islamische, zielt nicht auf irgendein relativ wenig beschädigendes Pieksen oder Hauteinritzen, sondern ist der Angriff auf das Zentrum der sexuellen Lust, die Klitoris, arabisch baẓr (بظر). Man falle daher nicht auf den Nebelwurf der globalen Bewegung für immer mehr Schariagesetze herein, die sich auf den amerikanischen Sufischeich Nuh Ha Mim Keller beruft. In seiner kommentierten Übersetzung des Hauptwerks des schafiitischen Rechts (Reliance of the Traveller) gab Keller baẓr falsch wieder mit Klitorisvorhaut: „nicht die Klitoris, wie gelegentlich fälschlich angenommen wird“ (not the clitoris itself, as some mistakenly assert). Nach Keller also ziele Allahs Rede (Koran) und Mohammeds Befehl (Sunna) lediglich auf die (Teil)Ampution der Klitorisvorhaut und lasse die Klitoris in jedem Fall unangetastet. Der einen Beschneidungsbefehl (FGM) von Imam asch-Schafii (schafiitischer Fiqh) und Imam ibn Hanbal (hanbalitisch) begeistert weiterreichende sowie die gesundheitlichen Vorteile und die himmlische Weisheit der Mädchenbeschneidung nach FGM Typ Ib bewerbende Assif Hussein (Female Circumcision – The Hidden Truth) behauptet ebenfalls, dass die Scharia den unbedingten Schutz der Kitzlers gewährleisten.[13] Die Scheiche und Muftis denken gar nicht daran, eine FGM Typ Ib als Verstoß gegen die Scharia zu definieren. Eine Ausnahme ist der hanafitische Scheich Faraz Rabbani, ein Schüler von Nuh Ha Mm Keller.[14]

Die autoritativen islamischen Texte geben das Wort Klitorisvorhaut nicht her, baẓr ist und bleibt die Klitoris. Bis heute hat uns der amerikanische Sufischeich und Übersetzer des schafiitischen Rechtskompendiums Das Vertrauen des Reisenden und Rüstzeug des Anbetenden, Autor Shihabuddin Abu al-Abbas Ahmad ibn an-Naqib al-Misri (1302–1367; ʿUmdat as-Sālik wa ʿUddat al-Nāsik, engl.: Reliance of the Traveller and Tools of the Worshipper) kein arabisches Wort für Klitorisvorhaut nennen können.

Die Herrschaften Nagarwala (2017), Arora und Jacobs (2016), Hörnle (Herbst 2014) sowie Ringel und Meyer (Frühjahr 2014) wissen nicht oder verschweigen, dass es auch islamrechtlich nicht beim Wegschneiden der Klitorisvorhaut bleiben wird, sondern dass, wie schon in vorislamischer Zeit, selbstverständlich das weibliche Zentrum der Lust amputiert oder teilamputiert werden kann, die arabisch baẓr (Mehrzahl buẓūr) zu nennende Klitoris. 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

Seither ist das dem kleinen Mädchen zu amputierende Quantum und Volumen an Genitalgewebe, vielfältig und flexibel, als Viertel eines Reiskorns, als Guavensamen, Bohne, Blattspitze, Nadelkopf (the size of a nail clipping, a quarter-grain of rice, a guava seed, a bean, the tip of a leaf, or the head of a needle) definiert worden oder als Hahnenkamm (the crest of a rooster), wobei überirdisch verschwommen bleibt, ob die sogenannte Bohne oder dergleichen jetzt aus der Schamlippe, aus der Klitorisvorhaut oder aber aus der Klitoris herausgeschnitten werden muss und schon eher gesichert ist, dass jede somalische, kurdische oder indonesische Beschneiderin von Zeit zu Zeit sehr üppige Bohnen sowie ausgesprochen fleischige Hahnenkämme zwischen ihren Fingerspitzen dreht.

Fassen wir die bisherigen Ereignisse aus Detroit bzw. Livonia zusammen: Ob Dr. Jumana F. Nagarwala, die Notärztin und Muslima aus der schiitischen (Tayyibi-Ismailiten) Strömung der Dawudi Bohra, eine islamische weibliche Beschneidung sprich weibliche Genitalverstümmelung (Chatna, Chitan al-inath, in Indonesien und Malaysia: sunat perempuan, sunat pada wanita) FGM Typ IV (Einstechen oder Einschneiden usw.) oder FGM Typ Ia (Klitorisvorhaut(teil)amputation) oder eine Genitalverstümmelung aus dem Bereich FGM Typ II (Schamlippen(teil)amputation) durchgeführt hat, wird ermittelt.

Werden wir nun grundsätzlicher. Ob der junge Mensch weiblich ist oder männlich: Erst der Erwachsene, der Mensch ab 18 Jahre, kann die Folgen einer rituellen Genitaloperation abschätzen. Minderjährige, 17 Jahre alt und jünger, sind deshalb vor jeder HGM, das ist FGM oder MGM, zu bewahren.

Schluss mit dem Verhandeln um die rechte Altersgrenze des Einwilligens (age of consent), Schluss mit dem Gerede von der genitalen Selbstbestimmung des Kindes oder Jugendlichen. Ob Mädchen oder Junge: keine Beschneidung unter achtzehn!

Drei Themenkreise überlagern, verzahnen sich. Ob wir über religiöse Genitalbeschneidungen, über Päderastie oder über das Ehe- bzw. Personenstandsrecht reden bzw. diesbezüglich Gesetze schaffen, „genital autonomy“ ist auf das Engste verbunden mit dem – sehr islamischen – Anspruch beispielsweise auf Verheiratung des neunjährigen Mädchens.[15]

Deshalb sollten sich Intaktivisten und andere Kinderschützer zur Altersgrenze 18 Jahre bekennen, unterhalb von der es 1. keine Einvernehmlichkeit sexueller Handlungen mit Erwachsenen, 2. keine Ehemündigkeit und 3., ob als Mädchen oder Junge, keinen eigenen Beschneidungswunsch geben darf; die entsprechenden Gesetze sind auf den Weg zu bringen.

Denn ernsthaft gemeinter Intaktivismus, bittesehr, der Name sagt es doch, bedeutet: Unversehrtheit des Körpers, insbesondere des Geschlechtsorgans, und integriert in keiner Weise das rituelle Genitalverstümmeln, weder auf Elternwunsch noch auf Kindeswunsch.

[5] Female genital alteration: a compromise solution

Kavita Shah Arora, Allan J Jacobs

To accommodate cultural beliefs while protecting the physical health of girls, we propose a compromise solution in which liberal states would legally permit de minimis FGA in recognition of its fulfilment of cultural and religious obligations, but would proscribe those forms of FGA that are dangerous or that produce significant sexual or reproductive dysfunction. […]

liberal governments should tolerate de minimis procedures with no more effect than other accepted procedures performed on minors for aesthetic enhancement. Finally, we will argue that labelling these de minimis procedures as ‘mutilation’ is culturally insensitive and discriminatory towards women, and that they do not constitute a human rights violation. In doing so, we offer a tiered argument and compromise solution […]

many Muslim scholars classify FGA as ‘Sunnah’ or practice established by the prophet Muhammad. […]

we must adopt a more nuanced position […]

his local culture of silence is due to a distrust of the global eradication campaigns as being ‘sensationalized, ethnocentric, racist, culturally insensitive and simplistic’.

http://jme.bmj.com/content/42/3/148

Arora und Jacobs Ruth bedanken sich für Unterstützung durch Ruth Macklin und Arianne Shahvisi:

Particularly, we wish to acknowledge Professor Macklin’s view that sanctioning de minimis FGA would constitute a harm reduction strategy that cannot reasonably be considered a human rights violation. We also recognise that Professor Shahvisi’s hypothesis of a ritual vulvar nick in a clean environment and performed by a trained provider as ethically appropriate indeed is within the scope of our category 1 procedures.

Cutting slack and cutting corners: an ethical and pragmatic response to Arora and Jacobs’ ‘Female genital alteration: a compromise solution’

Sanctioning a form of FGA that seeks to minimise if not eliminate harm to infants, adolescents and adult women, and at the same time show respect for cultural traditions appears to make good sense. In arguing for a de minimis procedure, the authors contend that any harm would be equivalent to that of male circumcision, a practice that is permitted by countries that have made FGA illegal. They are correct in saying that in a de minimis form, FGA could not reasonably be considered a human rights violation.

Beim Reden über das Einwilligen (consent) sollte die an der Brighton & Sussex Medical School zu den Themen Bioethik, Theorie des Feminismus und FGM forschende kurdischstämmige Britin Dr. Arianne Shahvisi das Mindestalter 18 Jahre fordern, um das Genital des weiblichen oder männlichen Minderjährigen kompromisslos vor jeder rituellen Operation zu schützen.

According to Arianne Shahvisi of the University of Sussex ethics department in Britain: „One must not cause irreversible changes to the body of another person without their consent.“

Kavita Shah Arora and Allan J Jacobs in their paper have compared FGM, which is considered a violation of child rights by UNICEF, with male circumcision. Jacobs is the director of gynecologic oncology at Coney Island Hospital and teaches bioethics at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York. Arora is an assistant professor of reproductive biology and bioethics at Case Western Reserve University.

“In liberal societies that accept male circumcision, room for discussion surrounding the acceptability of FGA exists,” the paper, published in the Journal of Medical Ethics by British Medical Journal, says.

The authors say that a small surgical nick or a minimalistic procedure that alters the appearance of a girl’s genitalia should be allowed as a compromise to the issue of FGM.

[…] Jumana Nagarwala, 44, was also charged with „transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity“ — a reference to FGM — and making false statements to a federal officer.

The criminal complaint says federal agents documented that two girls were transported by two women across state lines to a medical clinic in Livonia, Mich. Documents show Nagarwala is not employed at this clinic nor is there any record of her billings there.

The children were told it was a „’special‘ girls trip,“ according to court documents. The first victim told federal agents that she underwent a procedure „to get the germs out“ of her, and she identified Nagarwala in a photograph as the doctor who performed the operation. A medical examination performed under a search warrant found that her „labia minora has been altered or removed, and her clitoral hood is also abnormal in appearance.“ […]

The New York Times reports that she has been placed on administrative leave from Detroit’s Henry Ford Hospital, according to David Olejarz, a spokesman for the Henry Ford Health System.

Die Al-Azhar und das weibliche Genital. Von Jacques Auvergne (2009).

[…] Den Bürgern Europas gegenüber streiten muslimische Geistliche und streiten vor allem nichtmuslimische xenophile Islamfreunde gerne ab, dass FGM (female genital mutilation, Frauenbeschneidung) irgend etwas mit dem Islam zu tun habe. Auszüge aus einer Fernsehdebatte zum Thema der weiblichen Beschneidung in Ägypten.

Ausgestrahlt wurde das Interview über den kuwaitischen Fernsehsender Al-Rai TV am 28. März 2006. Quelle MEMRI-TV, deutsch von Jacques Auvergne, 9. Juni 2008, es unterhalten sich Dr. Muhammad Wahdan, Dozent an der Kairoer Al-Azhar-„Universität“ und die Dozentin für Islamisches Religiöses Recht Dr. Malika Zarrar.

Zarrar ist grundsätzliche Gegnerin jeder Form von Frauenbeschneidung. Der Islam-Experte von der so genannten Universität Al-Azhar, die immerhin als die höchste Autorität des sunnitischen Islam gilt, hat eine „differenziertere“ Meinung: Wahdan will die FGM, Wahdan will die Teilamputation der Klitoris für alle Mädchen, die sie benötigen, nicht aber für die, die sie nicht benötigen.

https://schariagegner.wordpress.com/2008/06/09/islam-und-fgm/

Kein Islam ohne FGM. Von Jacques Auvergne (2016).

[…] In diesen Wochen plant Ägypten eine Strafverschärfung in Bezug auf diesen Chitan al-inath (ḫitān al-ināṯ, ختان الإناث; auch: ḫitān al-banāt, wörtl. Beschneidung der Töchter; Tochter ist bint), in Bezug auf die weibliche Genitalverstümmelung. Der Staat würde die FGM dann, statt lediglich als Vergehen, als ein Verbrechen bewerten. Soweit so vernünftig. Nebenbei: Beschneidung, v. a. Jungenbeschneidung, ist chitan, ḫitān (ختان)‎‎, oder chatna, ḫatna (ختنة)‎‎, die Intaktheit des männlichen Genitals ist nicht weniger zu schützen als die weibliche. Wir meinen den wissenschaftlichen Begriff von körperlicher Unversehrtheit, aus islamischer Sicht freilich macht erst der Chitan das Geschlechtsorgan intakt. Ohne MGM bzw. FGM kein Kindeswohl, das ist die Maßgabe von Schöpfungsordnung (Scharia) und islamischer Normativität bzw. Gesetzlichkeit (auch Scharia).

Dann im Parlament der kleine Eklat. Der ägyptische Abgeordnete und Arzt Dr. Ahmad al-Tahawi (أحمد الطحاوى) ist Mitglied im parlamentarischen Gesundheitsausschuss. Sich auf seine ärztliche Qualifikation berufend, nennt al-Tahawi die Mädchenbeschneidung, und sei es für seine eigenen Töchter, islamisch geboten und medizinisch erforderlich („religiös und medizinisch“,دينياً و طبياً). Unfair, unbillig, ungerecht zu handeln sprich zuviel Genitalgewebe wegzuschneiden sei gewiss falsch, das Mädchen unbeschnitten zu lassen sei aber auch falsch. Aber ja doch, wo es gelte, sich zwischen Religion und Wissenschaft zu entscheiden, bevorzuge man den Glauben: „Wir folgen den Männern der Religion.“

[…] Circumcision is one of the Sunnahs of the fitrah, and it is for both males and females, except that is it obligatory for males and Sunnah and good in the case of women. End quote […]

In the fatwa of Shaykh ‘Atiyah Saqar – the former heard of the Fatwa Committee in al-Azhar – it says:

The calls which urge the banning of female circumcision are call that go against Islam, because there is no clear text in the Qur’an or Sunna and there is no opinion of the fuqaha’ that says that female circumcision is haraam. Female circumcision is either obligatory or recommended. […]

Female circumcison is practised in Sudan, Somalia, Egypt and a few other Arab and Muslim countries. It has triggered a passionate public debate in the West. This debate has found somewhat of an echo in the Arab and Muslim world, but some Muslim religious circles such as Al-Azhar (Egypt), the most important Islamic centre in the world, try to justify it on the basis of sunna (that is, to conform with the tradition of the prophet Mohammed).

Islam Question and Answer

General Supervisor: Shaykh Muhammad Saalih al-Munajjid

45528: Medical benefits of female circumcision

(Question)

Could you explain me what is the medical benefit of girl’s circumcision?

(Answer)

[…] Female circumcision has not been prescribed for no reason, rather there is wisdom behind it and it brings many benefits.

Mentioning some of these benefits, Dr. Haamid al-Ghawaabi says:

The secretions of the labia minora accumulate in uncircumcised women and turn rancid, so they develop an unpleasant odour which may lead to infections of the vagina or urethra. I have seen many cases of sickness caused by the lack of circumcision.

Circumcision reduces excessive sensitivity of the clitoris which may cause it to increase in size to 3 centimeters when aroused, which is very annoying to the husband, especially at the time of intercourse.

Another benefit of circumcision is that it prevents stimulation of the clitoris which makes it grow large in such a manner that it causes pain.

Circumcision prevents spasms of the clitoris which are a kind of inflammation.

Circumcision reduces excessive sexual desire.

[…]

The female gynaecologist Sitt al-Banaat Khaalid says in an article entitled Khitaan al-Banaat Ru’yah Sihhiyyah (Female circumcision from a health point of view):

For us in the Muslim world female circumcision is, above all else, obedience to Islam, which means acting in accordance with the fitrah and following the Sunnah which encourages it. We all know the dimensions of Islam, and that everything in it must be good in all aspects, including health aspects. If the benefits are not apparent now, they will become known in the future, as has happened with regard to male circumcision – the world now knows its benefits and it has become widespread among all nations despite the opposition of some groups.

Then she mentioned some of the health benefits of female circumcision and said:

It takes away excessive libido from women

It prevents unpleasant odours which result from foul secretions beneath the prepuce.

It reduces the incidence of urinary tract infections

It reduces the incidence of infections of the reproductive system.

In the book on Traditions that affect the health of women and children, which was published by the World Health Organization in 1979 it says:

With regard to the type of female circumcision which involves removal of the prepuce of the clitoris, which is similar to male circumcision, no harmful health effects have been noted.

And Allaah knows best.

https://islamqa.info/en/45528

I’m against the complete removal of the clitoris. I’m totally against this, because it is forbidden and does not please Allah.

Egyptian Experts on Islamic Religious Law Debate Female Circumcision

27.03.2006

Following are excerpts from a debate on female circumcision in Egypt. Al-Azhar University lecturer Dr. Muhammad Wahdan and lecturer on Islamic religious law Dr. Malika Zarrar participated in the debate, which aired on the Kuwaiti Al-Rai TV on March 28, 2006.

https://www.memri.org/tv/egyptian-experts-islamic-religious-law-debate-female-circumcision

The issue of female circumcision is very contentious. Note first that the above translation of the Manual of Shafi’i jurisprudence (fiqh) provided by Nuh Ha Mim Keller is not correct, since what the Arabic actually says is:

„Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the clitoris (this is called KhifaaD).“

[15] The answer to your question may be found in the ahaadeeth of Sahih al-Bukhari and the commentary of al-Hafiz al-‘Asqallani, which are quoted below:

‘A’isha (…) said: „The Prophet (…) married me when I was six years old. Then we came to Madina and stayed in Bani al-Harith ibn Khazraj. I fell ill and my hair started to fall out (due to the illness; then it grew back thick again). My mother Umm Ruman came to me whilst I was on a swing and my friends were with me. She shouted for me and I came to her, not knowing what she wanted. She took me by the hand and led me to the door of the house. I was out of breath and we waited until I had calmed down, then she took some water and wiped my face and head, then took me inside. There were some women of the Ansar in the house, and they said: “ ‘Ala al-khayri wa’l-baraka wa ‘ala khayri ta’ir (blessings, best wishes, etc).“ My mother handed me over to them and they tidied me up, then suddenly the Messenger of Allah (…) was there. It was mid-morning, and they handed me over to him. At that time I was nine years old.“ (Reported by al-Bukhari, 3605).

‘Urwah said: „Khadija died three years before the Prophet (…) migrated to Madina. He stayed alone for two years or thereabouts, then he married ‘A’isha when she was six years old, and consummated the marriage when she was nine years old.“ (Reported by al-Bukhari, 3607)

The phrase „he married ‘A’isha“ means that the marriage contract was drawn up; the marriage was consummated later on, when she was nine.

Muslim reports from al-Zuhri, from ‘Urwah, that ‘A’isha said that she was taken to him when she was nine years old, and she took her toys with her.

Nuray wirkt glücklich.

Die deutschen Besucher forderten die Eltern auf, ein eigens angefertigtes Schriftstück zu unterschreiben: „Wir haben verstanden, daß Nuray in Deutschland willkommen ist, wenn sie 14 Jahre alt ist“, heißt es darin. „Wir wurden darüber belehrt, daß sexuelle Kontakte zwischen dem 22jährigen Levent Metin und unserer zwölfjährigen Tochter nach deutschem Recht streng verboten sind und mit Gefängnis bestraft werden.“ Das gelte auch für sexuelle Kontakte in Griechenland, steht da. Dahinter hat jemand handschriftlich gekritzelt: „und überall auf der Welt“.

Überall auf der Welt, nur nicht in Thrakien, wo etwa ein Drittel der 338 000 Menschen Muslime sind. Der Mufti der Universitätsstadt Komotini, Meco Cemali [Μέτσο Τζεμαλί, Faziletli Gümülcine Müftüsü Hafız Cemali Meço Efendi], hat Nurays Hochzeit amtlich besiegelt. Er ist vom griechischen Staat bestellt, sein Amtsgebäude im Zentrum der Stadt ist zugleich Standesamt und Friedensgericht […]

Wenn jedoch ein Mädchen selbst die Heirat unbedingt wolle, nehme er es persönlich psychologisch und physisch in Augenschein und entscheide, ob es reif genug sei. Wenn ja, spräche das islamische Recht nicht gegen die Ehe. Der Mufti sagt: „Daß Zwölfjährige verheiratet werden, kommt nur alle drei oder vier Jahre vor.“

Das verheiratete Kind | Von Uta Keseling | WELT (Welt/N24) 25.02.2005

[ Düsseldorf: Bereits im Jahre 2006 ] tauchte der erste Fall auf: Es ging um eine Elfjährige, die hier mit ihrem 22-jährigen Ehemann lebte. Das Paar meldete sich sogar mit Heiratsurkunde [ s.: Nikah ] an. Am Mitwoch sollte sich der Grieche Hassan N. (damals 20, heute 22) vor Gericht verantworten, weil er eine 12-Jährige geschwängert hatte. […]

An der griechischen Grenze zur Türkei werden Minderjährige (ein altes Gesetz [das islamische Familienrecht und überhaupt das Islamische Recht, die zeitlose Scharia] erlaubt dies) mit Zustimmung der Eltern verheiratet. Die Zwangsehen sind zwar selten. [vgl.: Genital Autonomy, oder: bei Keseling: „Es war Liebe“, sagt Nurays Mutter, und auch Nuray, die zwölfjährige Braut in Kopftuch und Blümchenrock, sagt: „Ja, es war Liebe“ und versucht, dabei nicht allzu stolz auszusehen.] Da sie aber Griechenland als EU-Mitglied absegnet, sind sie auch in Deutschland gültig.

„Ein Skandal“, nennt das voller Empörung Diana Goldermann-Wolf vom Kinderschutzbund. „Staatlich geförderter Kindesmissbrauch – so etwas darf es in Europa nicht geben und verstößt auch gegen die UN-Kinderrechts-Konvention.“

Keine Heirat unter achtzehn – auch nicht auf Kinderwunsch

Text der Petition

Der Deutsche Bundestag möge beschließen:

1 Es sind ausnahmslos keine Ehen mehr anzuerkennen, bei denen ein Partner jünger als 16 Jahre ist, was auch für religiöse Eheschließungen gilt wie die islamische Imam-Nikah.

2 Im Ausland geschlossene Ehen, auch religiöse, können auf Antrag eines Partners oder des Jugendamtes aufgehoben werden.

3 Gesetzliche Absicherung einer Altersgrenze für Ehemündigkeit von 18 Jahren und Abschaffung der bisher gültigen deutschen Ausnahmegenehmigung einer Heirat bereits ab 16 Jahren.

5 Verbot der Bewerbung der Imam-Nikah in der universitären Imamausbildung sowie Ausbildung der Lehrerinnen und Lehrer für den bekennenden Islamischen Religionsunterricht (IRU).

6 Verbot der Bewerbung der Imam-Nikah im öffentlichen Schulunterricht, auch im bekennenden Islamischen Religionsunterricht.

7 Resolution des Deutschen Bundestages: Aufforderung an die Hellenische Republik, seit 1981 Mitglied in der Europäischen Union, die seit 1920 (Vertrag von Sèvres) bzw. 1923 (Vertrag von Lausanne) implementierte Scharia aus dem Griechischen Recht zu entfernen, ein Ehe- und Familienrecht ohne religiös oder anderweitig begründete Rechtsspaltung einzuführen und ein Heiratsalter von 18 Jahren durchzusetzen.

Begründung

Islamisches Recht ist Scharia. […]

    Australia’s first female genital mutilation trial: how a bright young girl convinced a jury

    (Three people have been convicted of FGM in a landmark trial in Australia. It was a complex case in which medical evidence was inconclusive, which meant the outcome turning on phone tapping – and also the testimony of two young girls.)

    […] That the girls were touched on the genitals by an older woman, known in the trial as KM, was not disputed. What KM did to their genitals with what she described as “forceps” and Emma described as a silver tool “a bit like a scissor” was what the verdict hinged on.

    KM said she simply “touched” the genitals of the girls in a “symbolic” part of the ceremony. The prosecution argued the girls had been cut and a medical examination by a doctor could not determine what happened either way, though type one or type four FGM was not ruled out. […]

    Emma told the court she “imagined she was a princess in a garden” as KM cut her clitoris with a steel instrument. She had her eyes closed during the mutilation, though she could describe what she saw KM holding in her hand beforehand. When asked by the judge, she obediently drew it for the court. […]

    Medical evidence presented to the courtroom was inconclusive. Dr Susan Marks, a paediatrician and head of the child protection unit at Westmead Children’s hospital, examined both the girls and said it was possible they could have been cut or even had part of their clitorises removed.

    The injury had healed with no obvious scarring to either. The crown prosecutor later explained to the court this was because KM had perfected a technique that left no scarring. […]

    (…) Jumana Nagarwala, 44 ans, est accusée d’avoir réalisé ces mutilations génitales dans un cabinet médical de Livonia, dans la banlieue de Detroit, sur plusieurs fillettes âgées de six à huit ans, a indiqué le bureau du procureur fédéral pour l’Est du Michigan dans un communiqué. (…)

    Une audience prévue lundi doit déterminer si elle peut être libérée sous conditions, a indiqué à l’AFP Gina Balaya, porte-parole du FBI. Selon Shelby Quast, directrice aux Etats-Unis de l’organisation Equality Now pour la défense des femmes, Mme Nagarwala est „sans doute le premier médecin“ jamais inculpé aux Etats-Unis pour excision.

    Mme Nagarwala est aussi la première personne inculpée au titre d’une loi fédérale contre les mutilations génitales sur mineurs adoptée en 1996. (…)

    Breaking his silence on the issue of female circumcision, a practice common in India’s Bohra community, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, the spiritual head of the Dawoodi Bohras, issued a statement on Monday. “Male and female circumcision (called khatna and khafD respectively) are religious rites that have been practised by Dawoodi Bohras throughout history. Religious books, written over a thousand years ago, specify the requirements for both males and females as acts of religious purity,“ read his statement.

    The declaration refers to khafD as “Islamic female circumcision“ or a “religious obligation“ that “finds an echo in many other Muslim communities, particularly those following the Sunni Shafi’i school of thought“, but clarifies with a centuries-old quote from Prophet Mohammed–“Hubbul watan-e-minal Iman“–that requires followers to “be loyal and law-abiding citizens“.

    Bodily Integrity and Male Circumcision: An Islamic Perspective

    [ Schafiitisches Recht: Jungen wie Mädchen sind zu beschneiden. ]

    By Ghiath Alahmad, MD, MA (bioethics), BA (Islamic Theology) and Wim Dekkers, MD, PhD

    For Muslims, male circumcision is performed for religious reasons, mainly to follow the sunna (practice) of Prophet Muhammad (…). Moreover, there are attempts to label it as a contributor to cleanliness / personal hygiene. These are done largely to grant the practice scientific legitimacy and a moral foundation. Because drops of urine and smegma gather under that piece of foreskin and may cause impurity to clothes and the body, many Islamic jurists understand the purpose of legislating circumcision as a way to purify the body from urine and smegma. […]

    Five practices are characteristic of the fiṭra (sound innate disposition): circumcision, shaving the pubic hair, cutting the moustaches short, clipping the nails, and depilating the hair of the armpits.7

    Among Sunni Muslim jurists, there are some differences in religious rulings on male circumcision. Jurists of the school of Imam Ahmad and al-Shafi`i consider circumcision compulsory.

    [ Genau – mindestens schafiitisch muss auch das Mädchen beschnitten werden. Ghiath Alahmad und Wim Dekkers können das wissen und müssen das schreiben. ]

    Al-Shafii school considers it recommended during childhood but obligatory only after puberty. Imam Abu Hanifa and Imam Malik consider circumcision [auch die weibliche] to be recommended but not obligatory. This means that if done, its doer is rewarded by God, and if not done, there is no punishment or reward. The scholars agree that circumcision entails the removal of all or the majority of the foreskin that covers the glans only. It has to be done during or at the end of the childhood. […]

    Islam and Bodily Integrity

    Islam expresses a remarkable interest in the honor and preservation of the body. Many Quranic verses and Prophetic traditions set out the restrictions and instructions for its care. Islam views the body as a divine miracle, one that points to the existence of the Creator and the greatness of His creation. Accordingly, in the Glorious Qur’an, […]

    The Rules of Respecting Bodily Integrity in Islam

    Changing the body is religiously forbidden

    [ Die MGM oder FGM nach ibn asch-Schafii ist keine Veränderung (alteration) … konsequent: (nur) Schariagehorsam macht heil. ]

    All actions that would deface or maim the body are forbidden in Islam. The body must remain in its original form unless specific permission is given from the Creator to make a change. Any change in the original creation of the body is considered one of the great sins in Islam. […]

    Bodily integrity: a Comparison between Islamic and Western perspectives

    [ Der Trick von Ali Schariati usw. Wer oder was Nichtislamisch ist, sei Teil des Westens (s. bei Sayyid Qutb: Teil der Dschahiliyya). ]

    […]

    Conclusion

    The relation between circumcision and bodily integrity is one of the new topics raised by some bioethicists. The anti-circumcision movement that started to appear in the West is not expected to succeed among Muslims.

    [ Wir gottesfürchtigen Muslime wollen mit eurem Begriff von Kinderrechten oder Menschenrechten, mit eurem Wissenschaftbegriff nichts zu tun haben. ]

    In this case there is a conflict between those who oppose circumcision and the legislative requirements of Islam.

    [ Korrekt. Und Konflikt gab es auch zwischen Gegnern der Sklaverei und Sklavenbesitzern.

    Islam ist Recht. Und so steht da nicht spiritual, ethical oder medical requirements, sondern rechtsetzend, gesetzgebend: legislative. ]

    Islam shows a lot of interest in honoring and safeguarding the human body, in both the Qur’an and the prophetic tradition.

    [„Koran und Sunna“]

    Interventions in the body can be allowed only according to certain juristic rules. However, because circumcision is considered a legal procedure, it may not violate bodily integrity or even lead to a biological deficiency or a feeling of a lack of wholeness.

    [ Nichtbeschnittensein ist islamisch illegal: haram (ḥarām), und abgetrennte Köpfe, Hände oder Füße sind ggf. legal: halal. ]

    In 2006 the German human rights organization Target organized a conference at the Al-Azhar University in Egypt. Leading Muslim religious leaders who were present at the conference, endorsed a fatwa against FGM. This fatwa was issued by the highest Islamic cleric of Egypt, the Grand Mufti Professor Ali Goma’a. According to him, FGM should be seen as punishable aggression and a crime against humanity. A Muslim must always protect the integrity of the human body.

    Das Mädchen zu beschneiden, bringt ihr Bescheidenheit und Anstand, Ehrgefühl sowie ein emotionales Gleichgewicht.

    (Dr. Ahmad Suleiman von der Universität Kairo)

    ‚Circumcising a Girl Brings Modesty, Honor, and Emotional Balance‘

    (Dr. Ahmad Suleiman of Cairo University)

    According to Dr. Suleiman, the fact that Muslims have been practicing this tradition for thousands of years eliminates any claims that it is detrimental to sexuality. He expressed his amazement over the argument that circumcision causes frigidity in women, saying that throughout the many generations that Muslims have practiced circumcising girls, they have been enjoying natural lives as married couples. Moreover, he says, „circumcising a girl brings modesty, honor, and emotional balance.“

    (Likewise, Dr. Suleiman claimed that not circumcising women results in the spread of prostitution. Al-Haqiqa (Egypt), June 7, 2003.)

    Die Mädchen nicht zu beschneiden öffnet Verdorbenheit und Prostitution Tür und Tor, ein Ergebnis, das wir am Westen sehen, wo jeder normale, zutiefst menschliche Bedarf ignoriert worden ist. Wollen wir so sein wie der Westen? Die [Anti-FGM-]Werbespots, die in diesen Tagen im Fernsehen gezeigt werden, sind zu verabscheuen, da sie dem Islamischen Recht [Scharia] zuwiderlaufen. (…) Ziel [der Anti-FGM-Spots] ist, die muslimische Familie zu zerstören und die ägyptische Gesellschaft zu zersetzen.

    (Der islamische Schriftsteller Dr. Ahmed Abd al-Rahman)

    „Not circumcising girls opens the gate to the spread of depravity and prostitution, as happened in the West as a result of ignoring this normal, human demand. Do we want to be like the West? The commercials [against circumcising girls] broadcast on television these days are repulsive because they contradict Islamic law… Their purpose is to destroy the Muslim family and degrade Egyptian society.“

    Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, who is currently in federal custody on charges of genitally mutilating children, will be driven to the downtown Courthouse to face a detention hearing at 1 pm.

    Show up at the Courthouse to help us teach the public and the media that genital mutilation doesn’t just happen to girls! Signs and blood-stained suits will be provided.

    Dr. Nagarwala and others physicians are legally allowed to cut the genitals of boys without any medical necessity, but the slightest cutting of girls‘ genitalia, regardless of religious belief, is a 5-year felony. (Title 18 United States Code paragraph 116).

    The Genital Integrity of both girls AND boys needs to be protected from the harm of circumcision!

    83% of newborn boys are genitally mutilated in Michigan hospitals every year. Michigan has one of the highest rates of non-religious circumcisions anywhere in the world. Male circumcision is a barbaric practice driven by the SAME reasons as female genital mutilation: cleanliness, tradition, religion, and pseudoscience!

    […] „The genitals of both girls and boys needs to be protected from the harm of any genital cutting practice,“ says Norm Cohen, Executive Director of NOCIRC of Michigan, a nonprofit, consumer-rights advocacy group that researches circumcision effects. “Michigan has one of the highest rates of circumcision in the world. This unnecessary custom violates a child’s right to bodily integrity and normal functions.” […]

    “Doctors and hospitals profit by perpetuating the myth that infant circumcision is health care. It is not,“ Cohen states. „It is a harmful custom that removes a normal, functioning part of a child’s genitals at the request of parents.“

    Both girls were aged seven at the time of the FGM, which was classed as either type one or type four, involving the cutting or partial removal of their clitorises without leaving a scar.

    Detroit doctor denies performing female circumcisions; Judge keeps her locked up

    THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    First posted: Monday, April 17, 2017

    DETROIT — A Detroit-area doctor charged with performing genital mutilation on two seven-year-old girls denied the allegations through her lawyer Monday, insisting that she conducted a benign religious ritual for families of a Muslim sect. […]

    “They were the last in a long line of children cut by the defendant,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said of the two girls who were accompanied to the Livonia clinic by their mothers. […]

    Die globale Bewegung für immer mehr Schariagesetze drängelt dazu, den Chitan al-inath, die Mädchenbeschneidung (FGM) (ختان الإناث), in Kliniken oder Arztpraxen zu verfrachten. Schreckliche Komplikationen schließlich würden im Hinterzimmer drohen, daher empfiehlt man die hygienische Medikalisierung – zunächst von FGM Typ Ia oder Typ IV (die islamische Forderung nach Typ Ib kommt später; überhaupt: Sitte, Keuschheit oder Ehre ist Familiensache, bei Bedarf wird das Mädchen nachbeschnitten).

    Ihre Mandantin, die Ärztin und islamische Mädchenbeschneiderin Jumana Nagarwala, sei besorgt gewesen um perfekte Hygiene bei dieser altehrwürdigen religiösen Prozedur, meint Strafverteidigerin, Shannon Smith (The Law Offices of Shannon M. Smith, PC, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan).

    “She was familiar with the religious procedure. … It does not have to be done by a physician,” Smith replied. “I believe my client wanted it to be as sanitary, as clean as possible.”

    […]

    “This is going to be a complex” case, Smith said.

    The judge replied: “I agree with you.”

    Da ist nichts kompliziert – FGM ist FGM!

    JEDE Form von FGM muss verboten bleiben, auch die „milde Sunna“ oder vielmehr Sunnabeschneidung der Mädchen: sunat perempuan (sunat wanita, khitan wanita) in Südostasien, Chatna bei den Dawudi Bohra.

    Hoffentlich versteht es auch U.S. Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub:

    Jeder Versuch des Aufweichens der WHO-Klassifikation ist zu verhindern.

    Lawyer: Genital procedure on girls was part of ‚religious practice‘
    Tresa Baldas | Detroit Free Press Published 3:30 p.m. ET 17.04.2017 | Updated 16 hours ago

    In a stunning revelation in federal court today, an attorney for a Detroit area doctor charged with mutilating the genitals of young girls admitted that her client performed a procedure on the juveniles‘ private parts, but maintained that it wasn’t cutting.

    Instead, the lawyer said Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, removed the membrane from the girls‘ genitals as part of a religious practice that is tied to an international Indian-Muslim group that the doctor belongs to.

    Attorney Shannon Smith said that her client removed the membrane from the girls vaginal parts and gave it the girls‘ parents, who would then bury it following a custom practiced by a small sect of Indian Muslims known as the Dawudi Bohra.

    All of this was disclosed at a detention hearing for Nagarwala, who was ordered locked up pending the outcome of her case. […]

    „She knew that this was illegal but did it anyway,“ Assistant U.S. Attorney Sara Woodward said in court, claiming there’s also a risk of Nagarwala and others pressuring others in their religious community not to talk to authorities about this „incredibly secretive“ procedure.

    [Tahara, rituelle Reinheit (طهارة ṭahāra) ist herzustellen; ein islamisches Ziel für die Frau, viel oder gar möglichst viel ‚Schmerzen beim Sex‘ zu erleiden, gibt es nicht. Zeitgenössische muslimische FGM-Bewerber behaupten längst, dass FGM Typ Ia für die Frau die sexuelle Lust ja gerade erhöhe. Gegebenenfalls ist allerdings mit FGM Typ Ib (Teil)Amputation der Klitoris die Lustwahrnehmung irreversibel ein bisschen oder ganz kaputtgemacht worden (sehr analog zur Jungenbeschneidung), Resultat von Typ Ib aber ist (sofern das Mädchen überlebt) ‚keine Lust spüren‘ oder ggf. ‚gar nichts spüren‘, nicht jedoch pauschal ‚Schmerz beim Sex‘.]

    […] The practice, which seeks to curb the sexuality of girls and women by making sex painful, qualifies as a criminal sexual act, as the intent of the procedure is considered to abuse, humiliate, harass or degrade.

    [Unsinn, die Chatna soll sauber, rein, ehrenwert, keusch, sittsamm, fromm usw. machen, und vor allem soll sie einfach nur der Scharia entsprechen, dem Islamischen Gesetz. Die Chatna (Chitan al-inath (ختان الإناث), sunat perempuan) soll also weder missbrauchen (abuse) noch erniedrigen (humiliate). Dass jede Frau, dass die Muslima im Islam mehr Sünde, weniger Religion hat, weniger Wert ist, rechtlich erniedrigt werden muss (halbes Erbe, halbe Aussage vor Gericht u.v.a.m.), stimmt.

    Doch wo beide Geschlechtsklassen (gender) beschnitten werden, kann noch nicht einmal von Ungleichbehandlung die Rede sein. Auch auf dieses Gespräch also darf sich kein Intaktivist einlassen, denn schafiitisch bzw. bei den Dawudi Bohra erhalten das Mädchen und der Junge die vergleichbare lebenslange genitale Schädigung: 100 % gender equality, zynisch gesagt: in aller Gleichberechtigung.

    JEDE Form der FGM muss verboten bleiben, auch die noch so geringfügige. In Bezug auf die Mädchenbeschneidung wie die Jungenbeschneidung haben wir weltweit durchzusetzen: Keine Beschneidung unter achtzehn Jahren.

    ALLE Kinder müssen genital intakt bleiben (Kind ist Mensch unter 18 Jahre.]

    Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is an Indian-American physician who, in 2017, became the first person charged under the United States law criminalizing female genital mutilation. Nagarwala, licensed in Michigan, was accused of cutting the genitals of two Minnesota girls who traveled to Michigan with their mothers on what they had been told was a „special girls‘ trip“. They were instead taken to a clinic in Livonia, where Nagarwala operated on them. She faces life in prison if convicted.

  14. Edward von Roy Says:

    “FGM is FGM is FGM.”

    My real concern is that Michigan and all the USA will soon legalise some “mild” forms of the Classification of FGM.

    Every form of FGM should be banned everywhere.
    .
    .

    Douglas Diekema (AAP) wollte ein bisschen FGM in den US-amerikanischen Medizinbetrieb integrieren.
    .

    […] Widespread discussion around the topic resurfaced in May of this year when the American Academy of Pediatrics Bioethics Committee reviewed a 1998 policy which banned any female circumcision. The committee recommended that the AAP approve what it called a “ritual nick,” arguing it’s on par with ear piercing and “much less extensive than routine newborn male genital cutting,” or circumcision.

    Douglas Diekema, chairman of the AAP’s Bioethics Committee at the time, has long believed that pediatricians should be able to perform a nick as an alternative to a more dangerous procedure performed in a nonmedical setting. […]

    While the World Health Organization defines four types, two forms of the practice are the most well-known.

    The mild form, which some refer to as a “clitoral nick,” or [ sunna ] “sunnah,” can consist of cutting, poking or removing part or all of either the clitoris or the clitoral hood. […]

    While some draw a definite distinction between female circumcision and Islam – defining the practice as a cultural one – several people said that the hadith, the traditional sayings and customs of the Prophet Muhammad, offers the nick as an option.

    Although female circumcision has been practiced among other religions, it’s most commonly associated with Islam.

    Many point to a line in the hadith in which the Prophet Muhammad says to a circumciser on the way to perform the procedure “do not overdo it, because it [the clitoris] is a good fortune for the spouse and a delight to her.” In this statement, some claim that the prophet is advocating the mild form of circumcision. Still others believe the prophet is condemning the tradition altogether. […]

    Female circumcision: A cut that divides communities | By: Tara Bannow (The Minnesota Daily) | 25.09.2010

    https://www.tcdailyplanet.net/female-circumcision-cut-divides-communities/

    ::

    [ AAP = American Academy of Pediatrics ]

    […] “What you really have is a disagreement about tactics,” said Dr. Douglas Diekema, a bioethics professor at the University of Washington in Seattle and a physician at Seattle Children’s Hospital, who chaired the AAP’s bioethics committee. “It’s very naïve to think that if you suddenly say [female circumcision] is wrong, people will stop doing it.” […]

    The committee [ AAP’s bioethics committee ] settled on calling the procedure “female genital cutting,” or FGC, and in the process of revising, rewording and rethinking its policy, it considered an approach for minimizing harm first proposed by doctors at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. In the mid-1990s, some of them were attending pregnant women from Seattle’s Somali community. “If your baby is a boy, do you want him circumcised?” they would ask. Some of Somali mothers-to-be would reply, “Yes, and also if it’s a girl.”

    The Harborview doctors proposed that the hospital offer these mothers a “clitoral nick” for their daugthers — a needle prick, really — in the small hood of tissue that covers the clitoris. “We’re talking about something far less extensive than the removal of foreskin in a male,” a common procedure in the United States, said Dr. Diekema. Such a compromise, the doctors argued, would discourage parents from sending their girls back to their native countries for unregulated and unsanitary procedures.

    “They weren’t trying to propagate FGC,” said Dr. Diekema, who had heard the stories of female circumcision requests from his colleagues at Harborview. “If this nick could prevent harm for a few girls, they wanted to have it in their back pocket as an option.” But when news of the proposal broke, anti-circumcision groups and stunned citizens swiftly put an end to the discussion.

    When the AAP resurfaced the idea last month, the public reacted with similar outrage.

    “It came as a shock to the many, many people who have been working for decades to end FGM here and around the world,” said Taina Bien-Aime, the director of Equality Now, an anti-FGC group based in New York City. “There is no discussion for a human rights violation. You can’t violate just a little less; you can’t discriminate just a little less,” she said. “FGM is FGM is FGM.”

    Bien-Aime, like many anti-FGC advocates, argues that allowing even a mild form of circumcision supports the practice and makes it more difficult to eradicate. She pointed to WHO studies showing that parents unsatisfied with a circumcision will re-circumcise their daughters “over and over again until it’s ‘done properly.’” She added: “Would parents ask for a drop of blood or a teaspoon of blood?” […]

    FGM IM ISLAM

    Der Koran erwähnt weder die Beschneidung von Frauen noch diejenige von Männern. Die Sure 95, 4 lautet: „Wahrlich, Wir haben den Menschen in bester Form erschaffen.“ Einige Minderheiten im Islam rechtfertigen die Genitalbeschneidung unter Berufung auf einige wenige Hadithe. Hierbei handelt es sich allerdings oft um eine bestimmte Eingriffsform, die sogenannte „leichte Beschneidung“ (arabisch الخفاض القليل, DMG al-ḫifāḍ al-qalīl). Bei dieser Beschneidungsart findet nur ein leichtes Entfernen des äußerlich sichtbaren Teils der Klitorisvorhaut statt. Wenige andere Gelehrte rechtfertigten als chafd / خفض / ḫafḍ oder chifad / خفاض / ḫifāḍ allerdings auch die Teilamputation der Klitoris oder sogar die Klitoridektomie. Noch schädlichere Formen wie die Infibulation werden vom Islam in keiner Weise legitimiert, auch sind keine islamischen Rechtsquellen vorhanden, die eine Beschneidung der kleinen oder großen Schamlippen erwähnen.

    Alle vier sunnitischen Rechtsschulen (Madhhab) befürworten die Beschneidung von Frauen. Die Schafiiten erklären sie explizit zur religiösen Pflicht. In den Ländern des Nahen Ostens und Ostafrikas, in denen die schafiitische Rechtsschule dominiert, ist die Beschneidung deshalb auch allgemein verbreitet. Auch einer überlieferten hanbalitischen Position zufolge ist die Beschneidung bei Frauen religiöse Pflicht. Für die Malikiten ist die Beschneidung Prophetentradition (sunna) und damit empfehlenswert, für die Hanafiten wie auch für manche Hanbaliten ist sie ehrenhaft (makruma).

    Der am häufigsten zitierte Hadith im Zusammenhang mit der Beschneidung von Frauen gibt eine Diskussion zwischen Mohammed und Umm Habiba [ Umm Ḥabība ] (oder Umm Atiyya, Umm ʿAṭiyya) wieder (das Hadith der Beschneiderin). Diese Frau war als Beschneiderin von Sklavinnen bekannt und gehörte zu den Frauen, die mit Mohammed immigriert waren. Nachdem er sie entdeckt hatte, soll er sie gefragt haben, ob sie immer noch ihren Beruf ausübe. Sie soll dies bejaht und hinzugefügt haben: „Unter der Bedingung, dass es nicht verboten ist und du mir nicht befiehlst, damit aufzuhören“. Mohammed soll ihr darauf erwidert haben:

    „Aber ja, es ist erlaubt. Komm näher, damit ich dich unterweisen kann: Wenn du schneidest, übertreibe nicht (lā tunhikī), denn es macht das Gesicht strahlender (ašraq) und es ist angenehmer (ahzā) für den Ehemann“.

    [ strahlender (ašraq) – sch-r-q – zu: Sonnenaufgang, Osten ]
    مُشْرِق [ mušriq ] {adj.}
    sunny sun-drenched bright radiant shining rosy beaming brilliant

    http://en.bab.la/dictionary/arabic-english/%D9%85%D8%B4%D8%B1%D9%82

    Nach anderen Überlieferungen soll Mohammed gesagt haben:

    „Schneide leicht und übertreibe nicht (ašimmī wa-lā tanhikī), denn das ist angenehmer (ahzā) für die Frau und besser (aḥabb) für den Mann“. (Andere Übersetzung: „Nimm ein wenig weg, aber zerstöre es nicht. Das ist besser für die Frau und wird vom Mann bevorzugt.“ – „Die Beschneidung ist eine Sunna für die Männer und Makruma für die Frauen.“)

    Dieser Hadith gilt aber als ḍaʿīf, also als schwach.

    ::

    Schafiiten: Sowohl die männliche als auch die weibliche Beschneidung ist absolute religiöse (religionsgesetzliche) Pflicht.

    only recommended for girls, adding that he should scrape but not go too far (ashimmī wa-lā tanhikī). according to the shafiʿi school, circumcision is compulsory (wājib) [ واجب wāǧib ] for both men and women.

    Den Ghaib gibt es absolut, mutallaq (muṭallaq), und relativ, nisbi (nisbī).

    There are two types of Ghaib:

    [ Erstens: Ghaib al-mutallaq, ġaybi l-muṭallaq ]

    1. Al-ghaib mutallaqa (الغيب المطلق) – Absolute Ghaib refers to all knowledge that is unseen or concealed and is only known to Allah. As stated in the Quran: “And with Him are the keys of the Ghayb (all that is hidden), none knows them but He…” (6:59)

    [ Zweitens: Ghaib al-nisbi, ġaybi n-nisbī ]

    2. Al-ghaib nisbi (الغيب النسبي) – Relative Ghaib is proportionate to an individual and his/her situation; hence it is apparent to some while hidden from others [ see: Islamic FGM ]. An example to illustrate this notion is that of a class in which the students can see the lecturer, hear the content of the lecture, and the conversations that take place in the classroom, while those outside are unaware of the occurrences in the classroom.

    Jumana Nagarwala

    Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is an Indian-American physician who, in 2017, became the first person charged under the United States law criminalizing female genital mutilation. [1] Nagarwala, licensed in Michigan, was accused of cutting the genitals of two Minnesota girls who traveled to Michigan with their mothers on what they had been told was a „special girls‘ trip“. [2] They were instead taken to a clinic in Livonia, where Nagarwala operated on them. She faces life in prison if convicted.

    Nagarwala is a Dawoodi Bohra, a member of the only religious community in India to regularly practice FGM. [3]

    In 2016, an Australian spiritual leader of that Shia sect has been sent to jail. He assisted the mother and another woman by encouraging them, potential witnesses and other members of the Dawoodi Bohra community to lie to police, or to not disclose relevant information. [4]

    60314: Circumcision of girls and some doctors’ criticism thereof

    […] Circumcision is one of the Sunnahs of the fitrah, and it is for both males and females, except that is it obligatory for males and Sunnah and good in the case of women. End quote […]

    It is sufficient for us Muslims that something be proven to be from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), then we will follow it, and we are certain that it is beneficial and not harmful. If it were harmful, Allaah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would not have prescribed it for us. […]

    Shaykh Jaad al-Haqq ‘Ali Jaad al-Haqq, the former Shaykh of al-Azhar, said:

    Hence the fuqaha’ of all madhhabs are agreed that circumcision for both men and woman is part of the fitrah of Islam and one of the symbols of the faith, and it is something praiseworthy. There is no report from any of the Muslim fuqaha’, according to what we have studied in their books that are available to us, to say that circumcision is forbidden for men or women, or that it is not permissible, or that it is harmful for females, if it is done in the manner that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught to Umm Habeebah in the report quoted above.

    Then he said:

    From the above it is clear that the circumcision of girls – which is the topic under discussion here – is part of the fitrah of Islam, and the way it is to be done is the method that the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) explained. It is not right to abandon his teachings for the view of anyone else, even if that is a doctor, because medicine is knowledge and knowledge is always developing and changing. End quote.

    In the fatwa of Shaykh ‘Atiyah Saqar – the former heard of the Fatwa Committee in al-Azhar – it says:

    The calls which urge the banning of female circumcision are call that go against Islam, because there is no clear text in the Qur’aan or Sunnah and there is no opinion of the fuqaha’ that says that female circumcision is haraam. Female circumcision is either obligatory or recommended. […]

    Praise be to Allah.

    Firstly:

    Circumcision is not an inherited custom as some people claim, rather it is prescribed in Islam and the scholars are unanimously agreed that it is prescribed. Not a single Muslim scholar – as far as we know – has said that circumcision is not prescribed. (…)

    Secondly:

    With regard to the criticism of circumcision by some doctors, and their claim that it is harmful both physically and psychologically,

    This criticism of theirs is not valid. It is sufficient for us Muslims that something be proven to be from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), then we will follow it, and we are certain that it is beneficial and not harmful. If it were harmful, Allah and His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) would not have prescribed it for us. (…)

    […]

    Islam und FGM

    Auf den ersten Blick scheint es doch so klar: In einer gemeinsam verabschiedeten Resolution erklären CDU, SPD, FDP und GRÜNE, sie halten „die Beschneidung männlicher Kinder, die weltweit sozial akzeptiert wird, für nicht vergleichbar mit nachhaltig schädlichen und sittenwidrigen Eingriffen in die körperliche Integrität von Kindern und Jugendlichen wie etwa die weibliche Genitalverstümmlung, die wir verurteilen“.3 Nun wird die Entfernung von Klitorisvorhaut oder Klitoris (zwei Formen sogenannter „leichter“ Verstümmelung, die ebenfalls von der WHO als FGM identifiziert worden sind) in vielen islamisch geprägten Ländern keineswegs als ein „sittenwidriger Eingriff“ angesehen, sondern als religiös und traditionell ebenso bedeutendes Ritual wie die männliche Beschneidung.4 Wie bereits erwähnt, unterscheiden die Schafiiten, eine der vier sunnitischen Rechtsschulen, dabei in ihren Rechtsgutachten nicht zwischen den Geschlechtern. So stellt ein schafiitisches Rechtsinstitut unmissverständlich fest: „Circumcision is obligatory upon men and women according to us.“ (Die Beschneidung bei Männern und Frauen ist unserer Auffassung nach verbindlich vorgeschrieben.)5 Entsprechend hoch ist in allen islamischen Ländern und Regionen, in denen diese Rechtsschule dominiert,6 das Vorkommen von FGM, ob etwa in Ägypten, Indonesien, am Horn von Afrika oder in den kurdischen Gebieten des Irak und Iran. Bewusst möchten schafiitische Rechtsgelehrte die von ihnen propagierte Praxis von anderen Formen weiblicher Genitalbeschneidung unterschieden wissen: „We would like to point out that this ‚circumcision’ is not what is commonly known as female genital mutilation.“ (Wir möchten darauf hinweisen, dass diese „Zirkumzision“ nicht das ist, was gemeinhin als weibliche Genitalverstümmelung bekannt ist.)7 Sie berufen sich dabei, wie andere Rechtsschulen auch, in denen Genitalbeschneidung an Frauen allerdings nicht als obligatorisch gefordert wird, auf verschiedene Hadithe, also Aussprüche des Propheten Mohammed, die überliefert wurden, aber nicht im Koran stehen. Den entsprechenden Hadithen wird dabei je nach Rechtsschule eine höhere oder niedrigere Relevanz zugemessen. Vor allem zwei Hadithe spielen bezüglich der Beschneidung eine zentrale Rolle, die immer wieder, auch in entsprechenden Rechtsgutachten (Fatwas), zitiert werden: 1. Eine Frau praktizierte die Beschneidung in Medina. Der Prophet sagte zu ihr: Schneide nicht stark, da das besser für eine Frau und wünschenswerter für einen Ehemann ist. 2. Die Beschneidung ist verbindlich (Sunna) für Männer und Ehrensache für Frauen.8

    What is the Ruling on Circumcision for Women?

    Shafi’i Fiqh > Shafiifiqh.com

    Question:

    Assalamu Alaikum
    What is the mu`tamad qowl (relied upon position) of the Shafi`ee Mazhab regarding the khatnah (circumcision) of women? Is it wajib (obligatory) or sunnat?

    Also, what if a woman was ignorant if it being wajib will it be incumbent on her during her advanced age to perform khatnah?

    Jazakumullah

    Answer:
    الحمد لله رب العالمين ، وصلى الله على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين، وبالله التوفيق

    الختان واجب على الرجال والنساء عندنا (المجموع: 1: 164)
    ويمنع من ختان الكبيرة لخوف التلف (الروضة: 3: 384)

    Circumcision is obligatory upon men and women according to us (i.e. the Shafi’is). (Majmu’ of Imam An-Nawawi 1:164) The circumcision is wajib upon men and women according to the rājih qawl of Shāfiʿī madhhab. In a situation a woman is in her advanced age, it is not permissible to circumcise her if it may harm her (al-Rauḍah of Imam An-Nawawi: 3: 384).

    [ Eine gute Frage (Fragen sind immer gut) an Shafii Fiqh ]

    [ Question ]

    Rulings from your site regarding female circumcision appear to have been taken down. Is there is a change in opinion concerning female circumcision from a Shafii point of view? What do you say about issuing a fatwa on this issue which prohibits the practice?

    [ Answer ]

    In Maratib al-Ijma‘ p. 157, Ibn Hazm cited that there is an established consensus (ar: ijma‘) that circumcision for women is permissible. This ijma‘ is related by other scholars too. In the Sacred Law, ijma‘ is a binding proof, and it is not permissible for any scholar to go against it.

    In Nihayah 8/35, after mentioning the official position of the Shafi’i School, that circumcision is obligatory for both men and women, Ramli defines what it means for a woman. He says that it is the removal of some skin from the clitoral prepuce. This is also mentioned by Ibn Hajar in Tuhfah 9/198.

    [ Nun wird man erfinderisch und behauptet, durchaus in Fortsetzung der von Scheich Nuh Ha Mim Keller ( „not the clitoris itself, as some mistakenly assert“ ) vorgegebenen Richtung, mit baẓr ( بظر ) sei, jedenfalls in Bezug auf den islamischen Befehl zur Beschneidung, nicht die Klitoris gemeint, – arabisch baẓr -, sondern die Klitorisvorhaut ( qulfa al-baẓr ), also eine FGM Typ Ia will man (angeblich) durchsetzen, wir ergänzen: zunächst durchsetzen. ]

    In these passages, the word „bazr“ is mentioned. Sahib al-Misbah al-Munir mentions that the „bazr“ in circumcision is the prepuce. Thus, what is intended is a part of the prepuce surrounding the clitoris and not the clitoris itself.

    [ Abenteuerlich argumentiert. Die bekannten Hadithe geben das Wort Klitorisvorhaut einfach nicht her. Und jeder kann wissen, was gemeint ist mit baẓr ( بظر ). ]

    https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D8%A8%D8%B8%D8%B1

    https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Klitoris

    In Sunan Abi Dawud and Tabarani’s al-Mu’jam al-Kabir, it is related that the Prophet Muhammad (upon him be peace) said,

    أَشِمِّي لَا تُنْهِكِي فَإِنَّ ذَلِكَ أَحْظَى لِلْمَرْأَةِ وَأَحَبُّ لِلْبَعْلِ

    „Leave it bulging, do not exaggerate in cutting. Indeed, that is more enjoyable for the woman, and the husband will like it better.“

    [ Mohammed billigt oder verlangt das Beschneiden – die FGM – hier müssen Intaktivisten und andere Kinderrechtler widersprechen. Die Scharia, der Islam integriert die FGM – darum geht es im Strafprozess: United States of America v. JUMANA NAGARWALA ]

    Some have declared Tabarani’s chain to be authentic. While others criticized the authenticity of this narration. Here, it is not being cited to establish a basis for a practice in the Sacred Law, the aforementioned ijma‘ establishes that. The narration describes the manner in which the practice is to be performed. It clarifies that the procedure is minor and the reduction is slight; in fact, the verbs used are commands, which indicate obligation. Meaning, to go beyond this contravenes what the Prophet (upon him be peace) commanded.

    [ Islamic FGM = ḫifāḍ / ḫafḍ – anglisiert khifaD / khafD – es glaube niemand, die Klitoris sei durch JUMANA NAGARWALA, MUI, Scheich Keller, schafiifiqh usw. auf Dauer geschützt. Man beteuert, dass ḫifāḍ / ḫafḍ Kürzung der Klitorisvorhaut bedeuten würde, also eine FGM Typ Ia – die wir als Genitalverstümmelung definieren und nicht straffrei stellen dürfen. ]

    What we have mentioned above is not FGM. In Arabic, the practice we are talking about is called „khafd,“ meaning, a reduction i.e. of the clitoral hood. This is actually, according to many health experts, an accepted medical procedure; something that when done properly, women are satisfied with.

    [ Jetzt geht es an die Begrifflichkeiten. Man will beschneiden – und nicht verstümmeln. Chitan al-inath / sunat perempuan sei ein harmloses religiöses Ritual, keine Verstümmelung (mutilation). ]

    Some individuals or organizations in Europe and other places argue that circumcision/unhooding is genital mutilation. The corollary of this line of argument is generally that it should be banned. This is obviously something that Muslims disagree with.

    [ I agree, we disagree! Beschneiderinnen in den Knast. ]

    [ Nun wird die FGM nicht nur per Hadith, sondern sogar mit dem Koran begründet – das ist kühn, aber durchaus möglich. ]

    Allah commanded the Prophet Abraham (upon him be peace) to circumcise, and Allah says in the Qur’an, „Follow the way of Abraham, as a pure monotheist.“ (Surah al-Nahl 123) And circumcision is part of his way; it is a ritual of obedience to God first performed by the father of the monotheistic faiths.

    Also, it was practiced and advised in the time of the Prophet Muhammad (upon him be peace), for both men and women.
    The official position of the Shafi’i School is that it is obligatory for a woman. There is also a weaker opinion that Imam Nawawi relates in Rawdah 10/180 that it is recommended. This is the opinion maintained by other scholars who considered that it is recommended or simply a noble deed, like Imam Abu Hanifah and Imam Malik. A woman following the Shafi’i School could make taqlid of these opinions. She would thereby be omitting a meritorious act, but not an obligation.

    [ Schafiitische Rechtsschule: Die Frau muss beschnitten sein – das Mädchen muss beschnitten werden – das hat der Scheich gesagt, der für die DarusSalam Foundation, Lombard (Vorort von Chicago), Illinois, USA arbeitet und seine Ausbildung in Islamic Law (Scharia) in Südafrika absolvierte, bei: Dar ‚Ulum al-Arabiyyah al-Islamiyyah, Strand, Cape Town · Kapstadt. ]

    For a Muslim scholar to issue a fatwa against it, that violates the aforementioned consensus, and to violate consensus is impermissible. Such a fatwa would also disregard many experts from the medical community who have expressed the benefits that such procedures have for women.

    [ Rasante Wendung, diese Schlusskurve … die Fachleute der modernen Medizin würden diese Form von Frauenbeschneidung für gesundheitsförderlich und und dem Wohlbefinden dienlich halten.

    Zwischen minderjährig und volljährig (18 Jahre!), zwischen Mädchen und Frau hat Scheich Yaqub Abdurrahman nicht unterschieden.

    Damit dürfte man, leider, schon bald zum Aushandeln des rechten Alters zur Einwilligung (age of consent) kommen, im Prinzip also wie bei der Jungenbeschneidung. Ob Mädchen oder Junge: Keine Beschneidung unter achtzehn!

    Auch jeden auf Erwachsenen (Mensch über 18 Jahre) lastenden Gruppenzwang zum Beschnittensein und Beschnittenwerden hat der freiheitliche Rechtsstaat zu unterbinden. ]

    And Allah knows best.

    [ And UDHR knows better. ( UDHR = AEMR 10.12.1948 ) ]

    FGM vor einem Gericht in den Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, da war noch ein Fall, jedenfalls beinahe. Im Jahr 2002, und die etwas gründlichere Aufdeckung der Sache zog sich bis 2005.

    Kalifornien. Ein gewisser Todd Cameron Bertrang, ein Anbieter von Piercings und Body-Modifikationen, machte jemandem das Angebot, weibliche Genitalverstümmelung durchzuführen, female genital mutilation, FGM.

    Die angeblich zu beschneidenden Mädchen, acht und 12 Jahre alt, waren allerdings – zum Glück – keine realen Kinder. Halten wir fest: Ja, Bertrang war bereit, zwei Mädchen genital zu verstümmeln. Der Preis wurde genannt, man war handelseinig, doch statt Handschlag klickten die Handschellen. Der vermeintliche Auftraggeber war ein verdeckter Ermittler der Polizei. Gute Arbeit.

    In 2002, a Santa Clarita man was caught in an FBI sting when he agreed through an undercover agent to perform genital mutilation on children ages 8 and 12.

    The man told investigators he had performed more “female circumcisions” than anyone in the Western world, though authorities were unable to corroborate that. He and his girlfriend pleaded guilty to conspiracy and possessing child pornography.

The procedure is an extremely painful, traumatizing mutilation of females that leaves them permanently disfigured. He also performs a similar procedure on males. He was charged with violating Business and Professions Code section 2053, a felony, by risking great bodily harm, serious injury or death by practicing medicine without a license. Bertrang was arrested and booked into Santa Clarita Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and will appear in court on January 21, 2003. […]

    The investigation has revealed that Bertrang attracted potential patients through Web sites and may have performed various unlicensed procedures that include male and female circumcisions at his residence since 1997. […]

    TWO WHO PLOTTED TO PERFORM FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION SENTENCED TO FEDERAL PRISON

    Prison Terms also Result from Child Pornography, Obscenity Charges

    Los Angeles, CA – Two Southern California residents who agreed to perform female genital mutilation on two minors were sentenced this afternoon to federal prison terms after pleading guilty to conspiracy, child pornography and obscenity charges. […]

    Court documents show that Bertrang had a business that offered body piercing and body modifications. After seeing Bertrang’s website, where he advertised these services, an undercover FBI agent contacted Bertrang in the fall of 2002. In a series of communications, Bertrang offered to perform female genital mutilation on two fictitious minor children, ages 8 and 12, for $8,000. During the investigation, Bertrang stated to investigators that he had performed more “female circumcisions” than anyone in the Western World, a claim that investigations have been unable to corroborate.

    The case against Bertrang and Faulkinbury is the first case filed pursuant to the Federal Prohibition of Female Genital Mutilation Act of 1995, which outlawed the circumcision or removal of certain sexual organs of girls under the age of 18 unless it is necessary for the health of the patient and only if it is performed by a licensed medical practitioner. Neither Bertrang nor Faulkinbury is licensed to practice medicine in the state of California. […]

    Und schon wieder hat, sozusagen, der Täter das falsche Geschlecht – Bertrang ist Mann.

    Die rituelle Mädchenbeschneidung aber, die FGM, wird – Stichwort rituelle Gender-Apartheid – grundsätzlich durch eine Frau durchgeführt, eigentlich stets durch eine Angehörige einer ebenfalls Mädchen beschneidenden Kultur (will heißen: die Beschneiderin ist beschnitten; Stichwort: Pubertätsritual) oder, und meistens, sogar durch eine Angehörige der gleichen Ethnie und Religion.

    Etwa in Kurdistan wissen viele Männer nicht genau, wie sehr ihre Frauen beschnitten (verstümmelt) worden sind, oder ob überhaupt. In Indonesien etwa wird das Mädchen unter einem sehr großen Tuch beschnitten, (mindestens …) von außen man wenig.

    Zwei Beispiele, 1., Beschneiderin, Mutter und Mädchen stammen alle aus der, riesengroßen, indonesischen-schafiitischen Kultur.

    2., Sydney und Detroit: Beschneiderin, Mutter und Mädchen leben innerhalb der kleinen, radikal parallelkulturellen (beispielsweise absolut endogamen) Wagenburg von Dawudi Bohra.

    2nd doctor, wife arrested in genital mutilation case

    Federal agents arrested a second doctor and his wife Friday in a widening conspiracy involving female genital mutilation and members of a Muslim sect.

    Dr. Fakhruddin Attar is accused of letting Dr. Jumana Nagarwala perform mutilations at his Burhani Medical Clinic on Farmington Road. His wife, office manager Farida Attar, also was arrested and is accused of helping Nagarwala perform the mutilations, according to a 14-page complaint unsealed Friday in federal court. […]

    Attar, 52, and his 50-year-old wife were arraigned in federal court Friday afternoon and ordered jailed until a detention hearing Wednesday. Both were dressed in the distinctive attire of Dawoodi Bohra members — he wore a white cap with gold trim, while his wife wore a long teal dress and head covering with pink fringe.

    “Dr. Attar is not aware of any crimes committed at his clinic,” defense lawyer Mary Chartier told reporters outside court. […]

    (WJBK) – A second doctor has been arrested in connection with a female genital mutilation investigation in Detroit.

    Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, of Livonia, were both arrested and have been charged with conspiring to perform female genital mutilations on minor girls out of Dr. Attar’s medical clinic in Livonia.

    Both husband and wife were arrested Friday morning and are due in court later this afternoon.

    Authorities say Dr. Attar owned Burhani Medical Clinic in Livonia, which is where a Detroit emergency room doctor who was arrested last week is accused of performing FGM on minor girls. Authorities say Dr. Attar’s wife is employed at Burhani Medical Clinic as an office manager. Authorities believe the husband and wife arranged and assisted in the FGM procedures performed by the Detroit doctor, Dr. Jumana Nagarwala. […]

    India-Born Doctor, Wife Arrested In US Genital Mutilation Probe

    NDTV New Delhi Television | Updated: April 22, 2017 07:32 IST

    […] The Attars were arrested this morning.

    The charges come a week after Indian-origin doctor Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Michigan, was charged with performing FGM on minor girls.

    Ms Nagarwala and the Attars are believed to be the first people charged under federal US law, which criminalises FGM.

    According to an online physician directory, Fakhruddin graduated from the Baroda Medical College in Gujarat, India in 1988.

    The charges say that Ms Nagarwala used to perform the medical procedure on minor girls at Burhani Medical Clinic (BMC) in Michigan that was owned and operated by Fakhruddin.

    Fakhruddin’s wife was employed at BMC as an officer manager.

    The compliant against the Attars said that the couple arranged and assisted in the female genital mutilation of minor females performed by Nagarwala. While they allowed their clinic to be used by Nagarwala to perform the procedures, Farida assisted Ms Nagarwala during the female genital mutilation procedures. […]

    The number of girls under 18 at risk for FGM in the US has quadrupled since 1997. […]

    Female genital mutilation practised in Iran, study reveals

    First authoritative research shows FGM is carried out in four major provinces

    […] FGM is more prevalent in the southern province of Hormozgan and its nearby islands (Qeshm and Hormuz) than in any other parts of the country. It is also being practised to a lesser degree in Kurdistan, Kermanshah and West Azerbaijan provinces, which are situated in western Iran close to the Iraq border.

    Ahmady’s research shows that FGM is mainly an issue concerning the Shafi’i sect of Sunni Muslim Iranians, a minority in the Shia-dominated country. […]

    “FGM is practised in Iran in some cases to tame girls’ sex drive before marriage; it is made to preserve their chastity,” said Ahmady.

    [ Den Geschlechtstrieb zähmen als Ziel, die Keuschheit wahren? Unsinn. Immer dieses Ausweichen vor dem i-Wort. Die Religion (al-islam) verlangt Chitan al-inath (Chatna, FGM). Die wollen in den Himmel kommen. ]

    […] Influenced by events in the neighbouring Kurdistan region of Iraq, which prohibited FGM in 2007, female circumcision is in decline in Iran’s Kurdistan but still goes on. Hormozgan is less affected by that change. […]

    Khitan (Arabic: ختان ) or Khatna (Arabic: ختنة ) is the term for male and female circumcision

    Like male circumcision, female circumcision is considered as a religious requirement of the Dawoodi Bohras. Both male and female circumcision (Arabic khatna and khafd respectively) find mention in books of jurisprudence written in the 10th century, including in Daim al-Islam [ Daʿāʾimu l-islām ], the principal book of Ismaili Fatimid jurisprudence written by [ al-Numan (an-Nuʿmān) under the reign of the fourth Fatimid Caliph and 14th Ismaili imam ] Al-Mu’izz li-Din Allah. The book traces the custom for both genders to the sayings of Prophet Muhammad and his successor (according to the Shia) Ali ibn Abi Talib.

    Claims that female circumcision is designed to curb [ bändigen, dämpfen, drosseln ] the woman’s sexuality and is patriarchal in nature have no foundation in the religious books of the Dawoodi Bohras.

    [ Drosseln stimmt zu FGM Typ Ib – anatomisch. Nicht islamisch. Die FGM nach Koran und Sunna, die Chatna ist reine Religion. Doch wird das curb bemerkenswert oft laut. Ein Trick. Curb & Geschnatter „Schlimm patriarchal“ ist red herring, Taqiyya. ]

    Abu Tamim al-Muizz (* ca. 930 in Mahdiya; † 975 in Kairo) war der vierte Kalif der Fatimiden und der 14. Imam der Ismailiten. In der Zeit seiner Herrschaft (953–975) verlagerte sich das Machtzentrum der Fatimiden von Ifriqiya nach Ägypten, wobei Wissenschaft und Künste in Ägypten eine Blütezeit erlebten. Er selbst widmete sich der Philosophie, Literatur, Astrologie und beherrschte mehrere Sprachen.

    Im Jahr 953 übernahm er nach dem Tod seines Vaters Ismail al-Mansur (reg. 946–953) das Kalifat.

    In die Zeit von al-Muizz fällt auch die Gründung der Al-Azhar-Universität (969), die zu einem religiösen Zentrum für die Ausbildung ismailitischer Missionare (dāʿī) wurde. Obwohl Kairo zum Ausgangspunkt der ismailitischen Mission wurde, unternahmen die Fatimiden nur geringe Anstrengungen, ihre Doktrin innerhalb der ägyptischen Bevölkerung zu verbreiten. Von größerer Bedeutung war die erstmalige Missionierung außerhalb des fatimidischen Herrschaftsbereichs, die besonders auf die Qarmaten abzielte. Mit Hilfe ihrer Unterstützung sollten weitere abbasidischer Provinzen im Osten erobert werden.

    Another Muslim Doctor Arrested For Conspiring In Female Genital Mutilation

    […] The criminal complaint from the DOJ alleges that Nagarwala’s acts were performed in the Attar’s Burhani Medical Clinic (BMC) in Livonia, where Mrs. Attar, described as an “office manager,” held the hands of the girls screaming in pain.

    The complaint alleges:

    This investigation has identified other children who may have been cut by Nagarwala at Attar’s clinic, BMC, between 2005 and 2017, including children in Michigan. On April 10, 2017, child forensic interviews employed by the FBI and HSI interviewed several minor girls in Michigan. In these interviews, multiple minor girls informed forensic interviewers that procedures had been performed on their genitals by Nagarwala. One minor girl said that Farida was present during the procedure performed by Nagarwala.

    As Townhall reported, „According to wiretapped conversations between Nagarwala and Mrs. Attar, Nagarwala advised parents to deny knowing about FGM should they be asked by federal law enforcement authorities.

    Von FGM Typ IV ist die Rede – will die Verteidigung diese Strategie nutzen – oder hat zwischen 2005 und 2017 im Großraum Detroit wirklich nur Typ-IV-FGM stattgefunden?

    Smith argued the procedure is practiced by the Dawoodi Bohra, an Islamic sect based in India, and that the clinic was used to keep procedures sterile, WXYZ reported.

    The Detroit Free Press reported from the hearing that Smith said her client removed membrane from the girls‘ genital area using a „scraper“ as part of a religious practice.

    The President of the Family Division had previously handed down two judgments Re B and G (Children) [2014] EWFC 43 and Re B and G (No 2) [2015] EWFC 3. The first judgment, addressing whether G had been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM), concluded that the local authority had been unable to establish on the evidence that she had been nor that she was at risk of being subjected to any form of FGM.

I said that I would give detailed reasons in due course.

    Court judgement raises questions about FGM and male circumcision in the UK

    National Secular Society 15.01.2015

    […] In a ruling on a child thought by Leeds city council to have been a victim of FGM, the judge, Sir James Munby, described the practice as „evil“ and said that „the court must not hesitate to use every weapon in its protective arsenal if faced with a case of actual or anticipated FGM.“

    Sir James added: „Given what we now know is the distressingly great prevalence of FGM in this country even today, some thirty years after FGM was first criminalised, it is sobering to reflect that this is not merely the first care case where FGM has featured but also, I suspect, if not the first one of only a handful of FGM cases that have yet found their way to the family courts.

    „The courts alone, whether the family courts or the criminal courts, cannot eradicate this great evil but they have an important role to play and a very much greater role than they have hitherto been able to play.“

    The judge said that FGM was „an abuse of human rights“ that had „no basis in any religion.“ [ Das stimmt nicht. ]

    In his ruling, Sir James sought to distinguish between the severity of different types of female genital mutilation as compared with male circumcision. The judge described the „curiosity“ of the law allowing male circumcision whilst it outlaws FGM. Sir James said that law is „still prepared to tolerate non-therapeutic male circumcision performed for religious or even for purely cultural or conventional reasons, while no longer being willing to tolerate FGM in any of its forms.“

    The case Sir James was considering concerned the adoption of two children of Muslim parents, named only as G and B. […]

    Despite finding that some Type IV FGM was comparable with male circumcision, the judge ruled that „‚reasonable‘ parenting is treated as permitting male circumcision“, in part because „male circumcision is often performed for religious reasons“ whilst „FGM has no basis in any religion.“ [ Dem ist nicht so. ] The judge noted that male circumcision was seen by some as „providing hygienic or prophylactic benefits“ though accepted that „opinions are divided.“

    The judge concluded that although „both involve significant harm, there is a very clear distinction in family law between FGM and male circumcision.“

    Prior to a change in the case pressed by the local authority, the children’s case would have depended upon G’s Type IV FGM, despite the fact that „on any objective view it might be thought that G would have had subjected to a process much less invasive, no more traumatic (if, indeed, as traumatic) and with no greater long-term consequences, whether physical, emotional or psychological, than the process to which B has been or will be subjected.“

    Much discussion in court centred over whether G had a small scar on her genitals or not, which led Sir James to discuss the relative severity of this variety of Type IV female genital mutilation and male circumcision.

    Making suggestions for the future, Sir James drew attention to a „dearth of medical experts“ in paediatric FGM and noted the importance of „knowledge and understanding of the classification and categorisation of the various types of FGM.“

    Then in June 2016, the Syedna issued a statement to clarify his official stand on khatna. It stated that the resolution letters issued in various international jamaats were still valid for Bohras living in those nations. However, in the same statement, Syedna also endorsed khatna as a “religious obligation” necessary for “religious purity”. These ambiguous messages can be confusing to community members who may then be caught between abiding by the laws of their land and abiding by their leader’s wishes.

    Syedna Mufaddal for female circumcision

    dna Correspondent | dna (Indien) 09.06.2016

    Bohra community head’s statement says only if government bans it, will it be stopped

    Days after his challenger made a statement that female circumcision be carried out by Dawoodi Bohra women only if they wanted to after attaining adulthood, a press statement from the public relations office of the 53rd Dai al-Mutlaq, Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, states that khafz (Islamic female circumcision) be carried out unless it is banned by the government.

    „Male and female circumcision (called khatna and khafz respectively) are religious rites that have been practised by Dawoodi Bohras throughout history. Religious books, written over a thousand years ago, specify the requirements for both males and females as acts of religious purity. This religious obligation finds an echo in many other Muslim communities, particularly those following the Sunni Shafi’i school of thought,“ stated the statement.

    It went on to add: „In many parts of the world Anjumans, the administrative bodies of the Dawoodi Bohra Jamaats, have directed their congregations not to undertake khafz, insofar as it is included in the procedures that have been made illegal under the laws of their countries. These resolutions reflect the repeated directions of Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS to respect the law of the land and live as worthy and contributory citizens within prevailing laws….It is clarified that contrary to the media reports following the sermon of Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin TUS of 25th April 2016, these resolutions of the Anjumans have not been nullified and continue to be valid.

    Further resolutions continue to be adopted in other jurisdictions even after the said sermon.“ [ Ja. Kontra oder pro Chatna … ]

    In a reaction, Sahiyo, one of the groups against female genital mutilation (FGM), said: „We thank Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin for officially and publicly speaking on the issue of female genital cutting, since there has been so much silence and confusion on this issue for so long. We are pleased to know that the resolutions issued in several cities around the world, asking Bohra residents to stop practising khafz, still stand as valid. While we are pleased that the resolutions will continue to be issued in countries where female genital cutting is illegal, we are saddened to see that the Syedna’s statement clearly promotes the practice of khafz in countries where such laws are yet to be passed.“

    [ Zwischen Junge und Mädchen wird nicht differenziert, hier: ]
    [ Islamische weibliche Genitalverstümmelung / Islamic FGM ]

    The statement goes on to add: „We maintain that khafz is a form of gender violence, an unnecessary ritual that has left many Bohra girls and women with life-long psychological and physical scars. The World Health Organisation defines female genital cutting as ‚all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons‘, and khafz clearly falls within that definition. Several conventions of the United Nations, including CEDAW, UNFPA, Unicef and UNDP, have declared FGC to be a violation of human and child rights. Countries like India, even though they may not have a specific law against FGC, are signatories to these conventions. We will continue our campaign to bring an end to this practice of female genital cutting within the community. We urge our leader to engage with Bohra women who have been negatively impacted by this practice and pay heed to our voices.“

    Prof. Jurnalis Uddin sempat memenuhi ruang media di awal tahun 2013 atas hasil penelitiannya tentang sunat perempuan. Melalui penelitian tersebut Jurnalis Uddin menyatakan dukungannya terhadap Amnesty International yang melarang keras praktik sunat perempuan. Jurnalis Uddin tidak setuju dengan Peraturan Menteri Kesehatan tahun 2010 mengenai tata laksana khitan perempuan, yang justru memperbesar resiko kerugian pada perempuan yang dikhitan. Ia bahkan mendesak Kementerian Kesehatan segera mencabut peraturan Menteri Kesehatan tentang khitan perempuan. MUI kemudian merespons keras pendapatnya tersebut, dan justru memberi anjuran kepada masyarakat untuk melakukan khitan perempuan.

    Schafiitisch Junge oder Mädchen, unbeschnitten ist haram:

    „According to religion, an uncircumcised girl is considered dirty.”

    Alles wird gut (alles ist halal), das Volk hat verstanden. Wenn da nicht diese Vereinten Nationen wären und der jährliche sechste Februar. Man wisse um die sunat perempuan und verliere nicht sein Gesicht. Man kultiviere das tosende Blabla:

    „Former First Lady Sinta Nuriyah Wahid advocates for the elimination of FGM during a UNFPA conference in Jakarta.“

    Die einstige First Lady oder Ibu Negara, Landesmutter, war Ehefrau des 2009 verstorbenen indonesischen Politikers und Staatspräsidenten von 1999 bis 2001 Abdurrahman Wahid genannt Gus Dur. Dessen Großvater hatte die sunnitisch-schafiitische Nahdlatul Ulama (NU, nahḍatu l-ʿulamāʾ „Wiedererwachen der Gelehrten“) gegründet, die oft als antifundamentalistisch missverstanden wird und für allmähliche (und selbstredend globale) totalitäre Islamisierung steht. Zwischen 1984 und 1999 leitete Abdurrahman Wahid das Exekutivkomitee der NU. Mit einer Mitgliedschaft von über 30 Millionen Menschen ist die NU die größte schariatreue (islamische) NGO der Erde.

    Changing the Dialogue: Speaking Out Against Female Genital Mutilation in Indonesia

    03.02.2016

    JAKARTA, Indonesia – “The day before I was discharged by the midwife, my daughter was circumcised. She is now three weeks old. When she becomes an adult, she will pray five times a day and read the Al Quran,“ says Rosa, a young woman living in Jakarta, before expressing a common misconception in the country. „According to religion, an uncircumcised girl is considered dirty.”

    In many regions of Indonesia, the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) is centuries old and deeply seeded, and many, like Rosa, mistakenly believe the procedure is a dictate of their religion.

    [Wieso mistakenly, fälschlich? Die FGM ist schafiitisch religiöse Pflicht und für die anderen Rechtsschulen mindestens ehrenwert.]

    The sixth of February marks the International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM, and this February, Indonesia’s former First Lady Sinta Nuriyah Wahid’s, a devout Muslim, is leading a growing chorus in the country speaking out to counter this misconception and end the practice of FGM, which is recognized internationally as a violation of human rights.

    Die sunat perempuan ist wadschib. Lügen ohne rot zu werden:

    “There really is no religious postulate for female circumcision, neither from the Al Quran nor from the Prophet’s sayings,” said Madame Wahid, as she explained to the attendees of a UNFPA seminar on FGM in Jakarta why none of her four daughters – or six granddaughters – have been subjected to the procedure. “Culture is the result of careful thoughts that start with the virtue of human dignity. A tradition that does not contribute to [this virtue] is not a tradition that should become part of the national culture.” […]

    this Monday, 8 February, Indonesia’s Minister for Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection, Dr. Yohana Yambise will speak about the nation’s strengthened commitment to fighting the procedure at an International Day of Zero Tolerance for FGM event at the United Nations in New York. […]

    ::

    […] The Indonesian Commission for Child Protection (KPAI) has called on the government to do more against FGM, starting by taking a clear stance on the matter.

    KPAI commissioner Maria Ulfah Anshor previously pointed outthat FGM is a violation of Indonesia’s child protection law as well as a number of human rights principles and international conventions that Indonesia has ratified.

    Maria Ulfah said in September last year that the government should act quickly and decisively by providing “complete, honest and accurate information about opinions on and the effects of female circumcision, so that people can steer clear from this dangerous practice.”

    Indonesia’s Minister for Women’s Empowerment and Child Protection, Yohana Yambise was slated attend a high-level event at the United Nations in New York on Monday to mark International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation, which falls on Feb. 6.

    The eradication of FGM by 2030 is part of the Sustainable Development Goals that world leaders, including the Indonesian government, agreed to last year.

    The fifth SDG, „Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls,“ specifically calls for the end of „all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere“ and the elimination of „all harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilations.“

    Din Syamsuddin, chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) and former longtime chairman of Muhammadiyah, is a member of the Sustainable Development Solution Network (SDSN), a UN initiative, representing the Islamic world.

    [Din Syamsuddin = Prof. Dr. KH. Muhammad Sirajuddin Syamsuddin]

    Adding to the confusion surrounding the government’s stance on the practice in Indonesia, MUI in 2008 issued a controversial fatwa that condoned FGM.

    The semi-official MUI is Indonesia’s top Islamic advisory body.

    Parents here mostly cite religious reasons for allowing the procedure, even as a growing number of religious leaders in Indonesia and elsewhere contend that there is no basis in Islam for FGM.

    […] Jakarta. Din Syamsuddin, chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), has been selected to become a member of the Sustainable Development Solution Network (SDSN), to represent the Islamic world in the United Nations initiative that has been supporting work on the 17 newly agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

    The former longtime chairman of Muhammadiyah, the nation’s second-largest socio-religious organization, was chosen in his capacity as a leader of the Religions for Peace organization, according to a press release by the Center for Dialogue and Cooperation Among Civilizations (CDCC), which he also chairs.

    The SDSN was launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in 2012 […]

    There are quite a few obstacles Indonesia will have to overcome to achieve any of the new SDGs, but Din could hit the ground running as his own MUI issued a controversial fatwa in 2008 condoning female genital mutilation (FGM), which is a direct challenge to development goal No. 5.

    Goal No. 5, „Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls,“ specifically calls for the end of „all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere“ and the elimination of „all harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilations.“

    FGM, mainly carried out for religious reasons, remains widespread in Indonesia […]

    […] The royal families of Java also employed a non-Arabic word for FGC such as kres or tetesan (‘pricking’). Among the orthodox Muslims, the term sunat perempuan or khitan perempuan (‘female circumcision’) is more commonly used, until today. […]

    The overwhelming majority of Muslims in Southeast Asia follow the Shafii school of law, which declares FGC as wajib, or obligatory.[…]

    Today, in Southeast Asian society, we are witnessing a growing trend towards institutionalising and medicalising FGC. In 2008, the Ministry of Health in Malaysia reported that 88 percent of their female staff had their daughters circumcised by doctors in the private practice. Another study in Indonesia revealed that 65 percent of FGC was performed in hospitals. In Singapore, a woman Muslim doctor admits to “circumcising five to six patients a day”, mostly babies and prepubescent children.

    In late 2006, the Ministry of Health in Indonesia banned doctors from performing the procedure based on the grounds that it was “potentially harmful”, but this ban was not enforced. Hospitals continue to offer sunat perempuan for baby girls, sometimes as part of “birth packages” which also included vaccinations and ear piercing. Yayasan Assalaam, an Islamic foundation that runs a mosque and several schools, also links the practice to celebrating the birthday of Prophet Muhammad, and even provides incentives like money and food to parents who bring their daughters to their annual sunat ceremony.

    In Malaysia, the Fatwa Committee of Malaysia’s National Council of Islamic Religious Affairs ruled in 2009 that female circumcision, was “obligatory for Muslims but if harmful must be avoided”. More recently, in Indonesia, the Indonesian Council of Ulema ruled in favour of female circumcision and added that although it cannot be considered mandatory, it is still “morally recommended”. The leader of this council however warned to avoid “excesses” in the removal or cutting of the clitoris — […]. A similar advice is given by the Islamic Religious Authority of Singapore on their website. […]

    the „tetesan“ – as it is called in the country […] The the Muslim intellectual Sumanto Al Qurtuby says the faction that supports tetesan is linked to the Salafi and Wahhabi [also ziemlich genau der hanbalitische Fiqh] community, which together with other fundamentalist groups are concentrated in Bandung and Aceh. They believe that circumcision is „morally“ encouraged by Sharia, or Islamic law, and reiterated in the hadith, in anecdotes related to the life of the Prophet Muhammad. […]

    The author of this article in his youth, when he was about eight years old, witnessed firsthand circumcision practiced on a young girl, forced by her parents (Muslims) to submit to the „Islamic ritual.“ Rather than doing it in a private and appropriately sterilized room – as I recall – the act of female circumcision was carried out in the open air, her feet on the ground, while the genital organ was removed with a razor blade. The little girl began to scream in pain, as a stream of blood oozed from the wound. At the end of the rite, I remember that the family offered a kind of celebration of the „thank you“ to neighbors, for taking part in the „Islamic ritual.“

    An opinion poll carried out by the government in 2003 confirmed that the practice of female genital mutilation is still widespread in rural areas. […]

    In 2014, researchers at Jakarta’s YARSI University conducted a study along with UNFPA to better understand FGM practices throughout the country and help develop a new, more comprehensive plan to eliminate the procedure. Then in September 2015, UNFPA convened the seminar in Jakarta, attended by Madame Wahid and nearly 100 others, entitled Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting: Discussions from Social-Cultural and Health Perspectives.

    [Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting: Discussions from Social-Cultural and Health Perspectives. UNFPA-Seminar zur FGM. Jakarta am 17.09.2015, Jakarta on 17 Sept.]

    […] Prof. Jurnalis Uddin from YARSI University Indonesia presented findings from a study, which was supported by UNFPA Indonesia, aimed at determining whether the 2010 government regulation on female circumcision had been effective as a harm-reduction strategy. Women, men, midwives, traditional practitioners, religious leaders and Islamic jurists were approached to obtain a better understanding of their knowledge, attitudes and practices regarding FGM/C.

    “FGM/C can only be abolished by a grassroots approach which involves community education and takes into consideration all aspects of a particular culture and tries to work within that system of beliefs to eradicate this practice,” explained Prof. Ahmed Ragaa Abd El-Hameed Ragab from the International Islamic Center for Population Studies and Research (IICPSR) at Al Azhar University in Egypt during his presentation, where he discussed FGM/C from the context of health, religion and culture.

    “Many countries have passed laws to to criminalize FGM/C , among them Egypt. However, legislation alone cannot solve the problem. The IICPSR at Al-Azhar University was founded in 1975 to disseminate the true stand of Islam regarding issues of reproductive health and explored the issue from an Islamic perspective and published several publications addressing it. In addition, IICPSR designed and implemented several programmes in Egypt and Somalia to eradicate this practice.” […]

    Former first lady and human rights activist H.E. Madame Sinta Nuriyah Wahid discussed some of the traditional motives and Islam and FGM/C procedures in Indonesia during her keynote speech, adding that she hoped the seminar would start a conversation.

    Sinta, who raised four daughters with the late fourth president of Indonesia, Abdurrahman ‘Gus Dur’ Wahid, described how her children grew up in a traditional pesantren (Islamic boarding school) environment. Their grandfather, Wahid Hasyim, was a religious affairs minister in the Sukarno era and their great-grandfather, Hasyim Asy’ari, founded Nahdlatul Ulama – currently the biggest religious organization in the country.

    Despite this, none of Sinta’s daughters or six granddaughters was subjected to the treatment, which many in Indonesia strongly believe is an integral part of the faith.

    “There really is no religious postulate for female circumcision, neither from the Koran nor from the prophet’s sayings,” explained Sinta during her keynote address, with various religious experts at the seminar concurring. “That is why I am confident that the nahdliyin [followers of NU] will not circumcise their daughters. I hope this seminar will contribute to ideas and recommendations of action to reduce the practice of female circumcision.” […]

    (2014) „Unterschriften wurden parallel an die indonesische Botschaft in Berlin und an das Gesundheitsministerium in Jakarta, Indonesien überreicht. […]

    [E]in Gesetz gegen weibliche Genitalverstümmelung halten [ die Regierungsvertreter ] nicht für notwendig. Die Überzeugung, dass jede Form von weiblicher Genitalverstümmelung eine Menschenrechtsverletzung darstellt wurde nicht geteilt.“

    .

    Indonesien. Im Staat mit der größten muslimischen Bevölkerung der Erde, nahezu ausschließich Sunniten der schafiitischen Rechtsschule, werden alle kinder – Jungen und Mädchen – religiös begründet beschnitten (genital verstümmelt).

    Februar 2014, die deutsche Frauenrechtsorganisation Terre des Femmes (TdF) schreibt eine dürre Petition gegen Indonesiens islamische weibliche Genitalverstümmelung und sammelt monatelang Unterschriften gegen FGM. Mehr oder weniger desinteressiert signiert man. Gegen Jahresende ist die Aktion vorbei und der Botschaft in Berlin wurden die Unterschriftenlisten überreicht.

    Der Botschafter hat besseres zu tun, doch Botschaftsmitarbeiterin Lefianna H. Ferdinandus erbarmt sich der Vertreter der Anti-FGM-Kampagne und nimmt die Listen entgegen. Und redet Klartext und schickte TdF nach Hause.

    Das geschah vor zweieinhalb Jahren. Geändet hat sich nichts in Südostasien. Fiqh nach Imam asch-Schafii. Seit tausend Jahren werden jeden Tag Mädchen beschnitten. FGM ist Religion.

    TdF über den Auftritt in Berlin vor der Botschaft:

    „Vom 6. Februar bis 10. Dezember 2014 lief die Unterschriftenaktion „Weibliche Genitalverstümmelung in Indonesien – Schutz statt Verharmlosung“ von TERRE DES FEMMES, Watch Indonesia! und Kalyanamitra. Zwischen dem weltweiten Tag ‚Null Toleranz gegenüber weiblicher Genitalverstümmelung‘ und dem internationalen Tag der Menschenrechte haben über 13.000 Menschen aus 73 Ländern unsere Petition unterzeichnet. […]

    Das Gesundheitsministerim nahm bei diesem Termin das Schreiben entgegen, wird von der Botschaft in Berlin die Unterschriften erhalten […]

    Nach der Übergabe der Unterschriften haben wir mit der Leiterin der politischen Abteilung der indonesischen Botschaft Lefianna H. Ferdinandus und weiteren Botschaftsangestellten ausführlich diskutiert, da der Botschafter terminlich verhindert war. Der Bedarf einer Aufklärungskampagne in Indonesien wurde zwar bestätigt, auch plant die Regierung eine landesweite Studie doch ein Gesetz gegen weibliche Genitalverstümmelung halten sie nicht für notwendig.

    Female genital cutting in Thailand’s south

    Yala, Thailand – „Just a little,“ Dr Patimoh Umasa says, pinching the tip of her finger showing how she cuts the clitorises of small girls.

    […] Umasa uses a sterile size-11 surgical blade, and performs the procedure for free, because she says it’s a religious procedure.

    […] Like others, Dr Umasa believes that the procedure, if done by a doctor, should not be considered mutilation. […]

    .

    .

    Imam Abdullah Abu-Bakr of the Committee of Islamic Council of Yala says Muslims in the south are more observant than their co-religionists in Bangkok, because there are more foreign-educated imams and fewer distractions, such as the entertainment hub of Bangkok.

    He himself was educated in Syria and Malaysia.

    Thailand’s fatwa committee has not issued a fatwa surrounding the practice of sunat, but Imam Abdullah says everybody knows the practice is required for boys, typically in a public ceremony around age seven, and though is not absolutely required of women, it is something all women should do.

    Circumcision is obligatory (wādjib) according to al-Shāfi’ī and many of the doctors, sunna according to Mālik and the majority of them. It is further, according to al-Shāfi’ī, equally obligatory for males and females. As regards males it is obligatory to cut off the whole skin which covers the glans, so that this latter is fully denudated. As regards females, it is obligatory to cut off a small part of the skin in the highest part of the genitals (Wensinck 1986:20).

  37. Edward von Roy Says:

    Even the least invasive form of female ‘circumcision’ amounts to a major violation of a woman’s physical integrity, with serious consequences to her health.

    Internationally, some organisations prefer to use the term ‘female genital cutting’ (FGC) which they consider to be less derogatory to those affected. Others coin words like ‘female genital alteration’ (FGA) and promote the idea of „accepting de minimis non-therapeutic FGA“ as a so-called „compromise solution“ (Kavita Shah Arora and Allan J Jacobs).

    Nevertheless, the term ‘mutilation’ is employed by human rights activists and international organisations such as the Inter-African Committee (IAC) to underscore the seriousness of the intervention. The term FGC (female genital circumcision), however, obscures the serious physical and psychological effects of ritual genital mutilation on women.

    Classification of FGM (2007). Female genital mutilation comprises all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons (WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA, 1997).The WHO/UNICEF/UNFPA Joint Statement classified female genital mutilation into four types.

    Classification of female genital mutilation. The complete typology with sub-divisions:

    Type I — Partial or total removal of the clitoris and/or the prepuce (clitoridectomy). When it is important to distinguish between the major variations of Type I mutilation, the following subdivisions are proposed:
    Type Ia, removal of the clitoral hood or prepuce only;
    Type Ib, removal of the clitoris with the prepuce.
    Type II — Partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora, with or without excision of the labia majora (excision). When it is important to distinguish between the major variations that have been documented, the following subdivisions are proposed:
    Type IIa, removal of the labia minora only;
    Type IIb, partial or total removal of the clitoris and the labia minora;
    Type IIc, partial or total removal of the clitoris, the labia minora and the labia majora.
    Type III — Narrowing of the vaginal orifice with creation of a covering seal by cutting and appositioning the labia minora and/or the labia majora, with or without excision of the clitoris (infibulation). When it is important to distinguish between variations in infibulations, the following subdivisions are proposed:
    Type IIIa, removal and apposition of the labia minora;
    Type IIIb, removal and apposition of the labia majora.
    Type IV — All other harmful procedures to the female genitalia for non-medical purposes, for example: pricking, piercing, incising, scraping and cauterization.

    (source: WHO)

    Some Indonesian Sunni clerics of the MUI (Majelis Ulama Indonesia) and some Shia clerics of Dawoodi Bohra seem to demand that the „sunna“ circumcision of girls (khitan al-inath; khitan wanita; sunat perempuan) should be permissible world wide. In the US, above-mentioned Kavita Arora and Allan Jacobs argue that mild forms of “FGA” do not constitute a human rights violation, and thus promote that some of those forms could be offered and tolerated as a “compromise” to protect children from more extensive forms of “FGA“, allowing parents to uphold cultural and religious practices “without sacrificing the health and well-being of female children“. This development must be stopped.

    Every form of FGM should be banned everywhere. To achieve this, it is indispensable to talk about mutilation, and not to hide or trivialize the anti-feminist and anti-childish practice with terms such as circumcision (FGC) or alteration (FGA). There’s no such thing as ‚mild‘ or ‚minor‘ or ‚de minimis‘ FGM. ‚Zero Tolerance to Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)‘ means zero tolerance even to the less invasive forms of FGM.

    Khatna „by choice as an adult“ – who is an adult?

    Dauerbrenner Dawudi Bohra und FGM. Volljährigkeit oder Erwachsensein (adulthood) im Sinne von islamisch erwachsen? Die durch Syedna Taher Fakhruddin angeführte Scharia kennt weibliche Volljährigkeit. Erwachsen bedeutet neun Jahre alt (neun Mondjahre). Der Syedna erweckt den Eindruck 18 Jahre. Oder 16? Oder 14 oder zwölf Jahre? Beginnen wir gar nicht erst das Feilschen um die Fähigkeit zum genitalautonomen Einwilligen (age of consent), bleiben wir bei achtzehn. 18, Herr Fakhruddin?

    (Syed bedeutet spiritueller Führer, Syedna Unser spiritueller Führer. Syed means a leader, and Syedna means our leader.)

    Syedna clarified his stand on the female genetic mutilation issue saying it should not be made compulsory to the young girls, but allow then to decide once they reach adulthood. “Khatna is a practice condemned in the law of Islam, in our faith it is different from FGM, but it was misused, like many who wrongly used the oral triple talaq. We follow the law of the land and this law must prevail,” said Syedna Fakhruddin. He added, “Women can reach adulthood and do as per their choice. Any surgical procedure done by choice as an adult is not illegal as per Sharia law.”

    Taqiyya, fromme (hier schiitische) Notlüge: „Das Islamische Recht verurteilt die Praxis weiblicher Beschneidung. Khatna is a practice condemned in the law of Islam“.

    Den Sunniten ist die Chatna religiös empfohlen (hanafitisch, malikitisch, ggf. hanbalitisch) oder religiöse Pflicht (asch-Schafii).

    Einen 54. Dāʿʿī al-Muṭlaq gibt es noch nicht.

    Der – amtierende – 53rd Da’i al-Mutlaq hat auf die eigene (Dawudi Bohra) Pflicht zur Mädchenbeschneidung bei den (sunnitischen) Schafiiten hingewiesen. Ein paar Tage später ergänzte Mufaddal Saifuddin, dass der Muslim im Sinne des geltenden Rechts gesetzestreu leben soll, das staatliche Recht hat er gemeint nehmen wir einmal an, das offizielle staatliche).

    In der Hanbaliyya wird Chitan al-inath islamisch (religionsrechtlich) eingestuft als gelobt oder verpflichtend, je nach Scheich.

    Fakhruddin – 53rd Da’i al-Mutlaq – erfindet einen Bereich Chatna, in die offensichtlich lediglich FGM Typ III passt, Infibulation. Diese als einzige ist mit islamischer Begründung tatsächlich nicht zu machen.

    [ Vgl. aber die Presseerklärung. Der Rivale des 53. definiert – die autoritativen Texte geben das nicht her – mit Chatna lediglich eine FGM Typ Ia der WHO-Klassifikation; Syedna Taher Fakhruddin: CDH (clitoral de-hooding) or CHR (clitoral hood reduction). ]

    […] In this context we welcome the disallowing of khatna of minor girls. What their statement also says is that the CDH (clitoral de-hooding) procedure will be an elective procedure for the legal adult woman and not compulsory or enforced. We also would like to emphasise that it is not generally a medical necessity and can be done only if necessary on medical advice.

    We also appeal to all the leaders of the other Bohra sects to pay heed to the voices of so many women and call for an end to FGM/FGC/khatna.

    [ Aus der Presseerklärung des rivalisierenden Da’i al-Mutlaq ]

    In his statement, the rival Syedna says, „In view of the trauma that many girls undergo when this procedure is carried out, and in keeping with the law of the land, khafz (khatna) of girls should only be allowed after they attain legal adulthood, after which they are free to make their individual decision whether to do the medically, legally and religiously sanctioned CDH or CHR procedures (analogous to khafz).“

    He also claims that CDH (clitoral de-hooding) or CHR (clitoral hood reduction) are procedures that are „in line with the faith tradition which says that if the procedure is done, it should not be done when the girl is a minor.“ […]

    Clinically, clitoral de-hooding is a minor genital surgical procedure to remove excess prepuce tissue or reduce the skin overhanging the clitoris to heighten sexual experience. This theory contradicts that offered by those favouring FGM who describe it as a means to curb sexual desire.

    Office of the 54th Dai al-Mutlaq his holiness Syedna Taher Fakhruddin

    Ahmedabad, 13 May (SMS PR Agency)

    His Holiness
    Syedna Taher Fakhruddin
    Saheb TUS has always been
    concerned about the protec-
    tion of the rights of women
    and especially
    girl children
    in the community. Syedna
    Fakhruddin Saheb wishes to
    issue this statement now to
    clear the confusion caused
    by misguided statem
    ents
    made by those who have
    usurped control of the com-
    munity. They have made
    statements contrary to the
    faith limiting the education of
    the girl child, forcing a glass
    ceiling on the role women play
    in society, and undermining
    the position women have in
    a marriage. Women in the
    community have been bring-
    ing their plight to Syedna
    Fakhruddin Saheb, espe-
    cially a group of women who
    have recently brought to
    Syedna Fakhruddin Saheb’s
    attention the trauma which
    girl children undergo when
    circumcision (khafz] is carried
    out in an irregular and im-
    proper fashion for many years.
    In view of the trauma that
    many girls undergo when this
    procedure is carried out, and
    in keeping with the law of the
    land, Syedna Taher
    Fakhruddin Saheb says that
    khafz (khatna) of girls should
    only be allowed after they at-
    tain legal
    adulthood, after
    which they are free to make
    their individual decision
    whether to do the, medi-
    cally, legally and religiously
    sanctioned CDH or CHR pro-
    cedures (analogous to
    khafz]. This is in line with
    the faith tradition which says
    that if the procedure is done
    it should not be done when
    the girl is a minor. In con-
    trast, Female Genital
    Muti-
    lation (FGM) is an un-Islamic
    and horrific practice that
    Syedna Fakhruddin Saheb
    condemns categorically. His
    Holiness the late Dr. Syedna
    Taher Saifuddin Saheb RA,
    the 5151 Dai al-Mutlaq, in the
    early part of the 1900s, seeing
    the law of the land and the
    needs of modern society, clari-
    fied several temporal tradi-
    tions of the faith. For example,
    he gave clear instructions to
    the community that men and
    women should be allowed to
    marry only after they reach
    legal adulthood, even though
    the faith tradition allows them
    to be married after attaining
    physical maturity. It goes with-
    out saying that these instruc-
    tions have continued and con-
    tinue to be given today by
    Syedna Fakhruddin Saheb.

    Jumana Nagarwala
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Dr. Jumana Nagarwala is an Indian-American physician who, in 2017, became the first person charged under the United States law criminalizing female genital mutilation. [1] Nagarwala is a Dawoodi Bohra, a member of the only religious community in India to regularly practice FGM. [2]

    Accusations

    Nagarwala, licensed in Michigan, was accused of cutting the genitals of two Minnesota girls who traveled to Michigan with their mothers on what they had been told was a „special girls‘ trip“. [3] They were instead taken to a clinic in Livonia, where Nagarwala operated on them. According to the criminal complaint against her, she is also accused of being complicit in the transportation of minors across state lines in order to commit a sexual crime on them, because two of her alleged victims were brought by their parents from Minnesota to Michigan for the procedure, and the parents communicated with her several times before bringing them. She faces a possible sentence of life in prison if convicted of transportation; also each of the mutilation charges carries a possible five-year sentence; additionally, she is accused of lying to a Federal law-enforcement agent about female genital mutilation. [4] The criminal complaint also states that several other young girls have informed Child Protective Services that Nagarwala has operated on their genitals, although the criminal complaint only directly accuses her of mutilating two girls.

    She was denied bail on the grounds that the court considers her a danger to the community and a flight risk.[5]

    The owners of the clinic where the mutilations were allegedly done, Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, have been arrested and accused of being accomplices.[6][7]

    Education and professional experience

    She earned her medical degree from Johns Hopkins, graduating in 1998.[2]

    She has worked as an assistant director of the emergency medicine residency program at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.[2]

    Female genital mutilation in the United States

    Female genital mutilation in the United States occurs across the country. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is defined as „all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.“

    In April 2017, Jumana Nagarwala, a female doctor working at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit was charged with allegedly performing FGM in a medical clinic in Livonia, Michigan, on two girls who had traveled there from Minnesota with their parents. She denied the charge. This was the first federal prosecution for female genital mutilation in US history.

    She has denied cutting the girls, saying she merely performed a religious procedure that involved removing and then burying skin in the ground.

    Nagarwala, 44, a Henry Ford Health System emergency room physician from Northville, is accused of performing the procedure at a Livonia clinic.

    The clinic is owned by Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, 52, who has served as treasurer and a leader of the Farmington Hills mosque, according to the Anjuman-e-Najmi website.

    Attar and his wife, Farida, are charged with conspiracy to commit female genital mutilation and aiding and abetting female genital mutilation.

    The couple are scheduled to appear in federal court at 1 p.m. Wednesday, when a judge could release them on bond.

    “Yes, Prophet Mohammad (…) did approve, he did approve of female circumcision in [the City of] Madeena [ Medina ] when it was presented to him, but he limited it to only a nick. A nick that would not affect the woman’s ability to enjoy the blessing of sexual relations and marriage anymore that it would affect a male when he is circumcised. This is what Islam has permitted. […]

    In the Facebook discussion over his video, Bilal Philips wrote the following:

    “A nick means a very small cut, something like a scratch.”

    “It is recommended for males and permitted in the slightest form for females.”

    “Circumcision of females which involves cutting out body parts (genitalia) is haraam [prohibited] in Islam.”

    “He [Mohammad] permitted it [circumcision] when asked by the Muslims of [the City of] Madeenah, but he did not recommend it. Instead he instructed that it should be very slight.”

    Bilal Philips: “Does Islam support or allow female circumcision? Yes, but in a very limited or at a very limited scale…taking only a small portion from the end of the clitoris, this is all that is really permissible from Islamic perspective.”

    CHILD MARRIAGE

    “For us in Islam, we have a natural principle, a natural dividing line, which is for a woman to be considered an adult, or that she may be married and have sexual relations etc. That dividing line is puberty. So whether one in this society, considers that person still to be a child or not, that’s not the issue. But it remains legitimate, that if a muslim man in his 50′s, even today, wanted to marry a young woman who was nine or ten, and she had reached puberty, it is legitimate.”

    [ Erwachsen als Mädchen? 9 Jahre. Spätestens mit zwölf. Sagen wir Pubertät, erste Menstruation. Einfach gesagt mit neun. ]

    “Islam sets the age of marriage at puberty, as it is the natural dividing line between childhood and adulthood. Menstruation indicates that a young girl has reached childbearing age.”

    Story of FGM from mouths of Bohra victims.
    ख़तना की कहानी मज़लूमों की ज़बानी

    Female Khatna or FMG: Bohra girls when around 7 years of age, her mother, Grandmother, a relative, or a neighbor lies her with luring promise and take her to a Bohra cutter who with help of 2-3 other strong accomplices, forcibly cuts her clitoris robbing her of sexual drive. This barbaric assault and post Khatna syndrome leaves her life scarred physically and mentally. After Khatna, the girl loses her God given sexual drive and cannot enjoy pleasure of orgasm when married. Their behavior becomes drastically skewed and different than other non-Khatna women.

    Bohra Syedna Mufaddal, like his predecessors, makes Bohras fearful of their girls coming into heat and indulging in sex before marriage. So, he has made it mandatory on all Bohras to cut the organ that creates sexual pleasure. This crazy edicts result in big tragedy for the girl, her husband, and the society; all lose because of this senseless, cruel and barbaric action.

    Two Indian doctors, woman indicted in US genital mutilation case
    New Indian Express 27.04.2017

    Fakhruddin Attar, 53, and his wife, Farida Attar, 50, both from Michigan state, were charged with conspiring to perform female genital mutilations (FGM) on minor girls out of Fakhruddin Attar’s medical clinic in Livonia. The Attars were arrested on April 21. They were charged with helping another Indian-origin doctor Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Michigan, perform FGM on minor girls. (…)

    The compliant against the Attars said that the couple arranged and assisted in the female genital mutilation of minor females performed by Nagarwala. While they allowed their clinic to be used by Nagarwala to perform the procedures, Farida assisted Nagarwala during the female genital mutilation procedures. (…)

    The World Health Organisation said female genital mutilation comprises all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

    „remain shy and virtuous. In the Orient, where the climate is hot, a girl gets easily aroused if she is not circumcised. It makes her shameless and prey to her sexual instincts except those to whom Allah shows compassion.“

    Attorney Mary Chartier for doctor says client „being persecuted because of their religious beliefs“

    Mary Chartier said that at the heart of her client’s defense is a misunderstanding over his religious practice. When asked to clarify what that practice was, she did not respond.

    „I do believe that the government does not fully understand the religious practices of Dr. Attar and Dr. Attar’s religion, and I think that’s why we are in this courthouse today, and what we’ll be fighting over for the next few months,“ Mary Chartier said.

    „They have a religious belief to practice their religion. And they are Muslims and they’re being under attack because of it. I believe that they are being persecuted because of their religious beliefs and I do not make that allegation lightly,“ Mary Chartier said.

    Farida Attar’s attorney, Matt Newburg, did not speak to reporters following the hearing. Over the weekend, he told CNN his „client has not admitted guilt.“ […]

    […] Indeed: the government is likely clueless as to the Islamic justifications for female genital mutilation. Chartier is getting right to the heart of the matter: apparently she intends to argue that female genital mutilation (contrary to constantly repeated establishment media myth) is justified in Islam, and that therefore Dr. Attar was just exercising his freedom of religion. If that is really what she intends to do, this will become a test case for the spread of Sharia practices in the U.S.: either Muslims will be allowed to violate existing U.S. laws under the rubric of the freedom of religion, or they will be called upon to obey U.S. laws even when those laws conflict with the teachings of Islam. If the court rules for the latter, the U.S. will have a chance to continue to exist as a free society. If the court rules for the former, it will be opening the door to all manner of jihad activity and Sharia practices that violate laws regarding equality of rights and equality of access to services, and no one will be able to say a word against the spread of Sharia in the U.S.

    “They have a religious belief to practice their religion. And they are Muslims and they’re being under attack because of it. I believe that they are being persecuted because of their religious beliefs and I do not make that allegation lightly,” Chartier said….

    No, they’re “being under attack” for mutilating girls’ genitals. But Chartier is right: female genital mutilation is indeed sanctioned in Islam. “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64

    Why is it obligatory? Because Muhammad is held to have said so: “Abu al- Malih ibn Usama’s father relates that the Prophet said: ‘Circumcision is a law for men and a preservation of honour for women.’” — Ahmad Ibn Hanbal 5:75

    “Narrated Umm Atiyyah al-Ansariyyah: A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to her: ‘Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’” — Abu Dawud 41:5251

    “Do not cut severely,” but not “Do not cut.”

    That’s why it is so common around the world. A Muslim cleric in Russia said that “all women should be circumcised.” A Muslim cleric in India likewise urged that it be done. A Muslim cleric in Australia said that Islamic law permitted the practice. A leading U.S. Muslim jurist from the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) said it was an “honor” in Islam. A marabout — a Muslim holy man — was arrested in France for having it done on his daughters. In the UK, there were 5,500 cases of FGM in 2016 alone. It is commonly claimed to be an East African problem, but 93% of Muslim women in Malaysia have suffered this procedure, and it is common in Indonesia. In one province in Iran, 60% of the women have suffered FGM.

    It is certain to become increasingly common in the United States. And if Mary Chartier succeeds, it will become legal, as a matter of freedom of religion. This case bears close watching. […]

    Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Happiness: To be 18 years old and still have INTACT genitals
    .

    [ WHO – World Health Organization – Female genital mutilation – Fact sheet – Updated February 2017 ]

    „Female genital mutilation (FGM) comprises all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.“

    No health benefits, only harm

    FGM has no health benefits, and it harms girls and women in many ways. It involves removing and damaging healthy and normal female genital tissue, and interferes with the natural functions of girls‘ and women’s bodies. Generally speaking, risks increase with increasing severity of the procedure.

    Immediate complications can include:

    severe pain
    excessive bleeding (haemorrhage)
    genital tissue swelling
    fever
    infections e.g., tetanus
    urinary problems
    wound healing problems
    injury to surrounding genital tissue
    shock
    death.

    Long-term consequences can include:

    urinary problems (painful urination, urinary tract infections);
    vaginal problems (discharge, itching, bacterial vaginosis and other infections);
    menstrual problems (painful menstruations, difficulty in passing menstrual blood, etc.);
    scar tissue and keloid;
    sexual problems (pain during intercourse, decreased satisfaction, etc.);
    increased risk of childbirth complications (difficult delivery, excessive bleeding, caesarean section, need to resuscitate the baby, etc.) and newborn deaths;
    need for later surgeries: for example, the FGM procedure that seals or narrows a vaginal opening (type 3) needs to be cut open later to allow for sexual intercourse and childbirth (deinfibulation). Sometimes genital tissue is stitched again several times, including after childbirth, hence the woman goes through repeated opening and closing procedures, further increasing both immediate and long-term risks;
    psychological problems (depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, low self-esteem, etc.);
    health complications of female genital mutilation.

    “(1) the practice of female genital mutilation is carried out by members of certain cultural and religious groups within the United States;

    “(2) the practice of female genital mutilation often results in the occurrence of physical and psychological health effects that harm the women involved;

    “(3) such mutilation infringes upon the guarantees of rights secured by Federal and State law, both statutory and constitutional;

    “(4) the unique circumstances surrounding the practice of female genital mutilation place it beyond the ability of any single State or local jurisdiction to control;

    “(5) the practice of female genital mutilation can be prohibited without abridging the exercise of any rights guaranteed under the first amendment to the Constitution or under any other law; and

    “(6) Congress has the affirmative power under section 8 of article I, the necessary and proper clause, section 5 of the fourteenth Amendment, as well as under the treaty clause, to the Constitution to enact such legislation.”

    Dr. Jumana Nagarwala, 44, of Northville, is charged with performing female genital mutilation (FGM) on girls who were 6 to 8 years old at the Burhani Medical Clinic. Nagarwala, the clinic owner Dr. Fakhruddin Attar, and his wife Farida Attar all face charges in the case. All three are expected to head to trial.

    Nagarwala was arrested April 12 and detained April 17. Henry Ford Health System said she was placed on administrative leave April 13. Local 4 and ClickOnDetroit learned Thursday [ April 27 ] she has been terminated from her position as an emergency department physician at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit.

    Auch der US-Bundesstaat Michigan wird vielleicht schon bald ein Gesetz gegen FGM haben.

    Stellt sich die Frage, ob wirklich jeder FGM-Typ (im Sinne der WHO-Klassifikation) verboten und bestraft werden wird oder man, dann durchaus im Sinne von Kavita Shah Arora und Tatjana Hörnle, die religiöse (islamische) teilweise oder vollständige Klitorisvorhautamputation (FGM Typ Ia) oder ein religiöses (islamisches) genitales Einstechen, Beraspeln, Beschaben, Bekratzen (zu FGM Typ IV) integriert wissen möchte in Pursuit of Happiness, The Land Of The Free, The American Dream.

    Die schafiitischen Rechtsgelehrten fordern die Beschneidung des Kindes und unterscheiden hier gar nicht zwischen Junge und Mädchen.

    Jede FGM muss verboten bleiben, auch die islamische Chatna des Mädchens oder der Frau (chitan al-inath), etwa als die sogenannte milde Sunna.

    Senate legislation outlaws female genital mutilation in Michigan

    26.04.2017

    […] Senate Bill 337 would establish the crime, while SB 338 would provide the necessary sentencing guidelines. The bills are expected to be formally read in on Thursday.

    “Female genital mutilation is a horrible procedure that permanently deforms girls and stands against the rights of girls and women that so many have fought for in our country,” said Senator Margaret O’Brien, R-Portage, sponsor of SB 337. “We must put a stop to it.”

    According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, female genital mutilation refers to cutting and other procedures that injure the female genital organs for non-medical reasons.

    The department states federal law prohibits anyone in the country from knowingly circumcising, excising or infibulating the genitals of any child under 18 years of age. Michigan would join at least 24 other states that have laws prohibiting the procedure.

    “There is no place for this type of barbarism in Michigan,” said Senator Tonya Schuitmaker, R-Lawton, a co-sponsor. “This legislation will help to ensure that those convicted of this heinous act receive the justice they deserve.”

    The bills stem from a recent case in which Michigan-based doctors were arrested and charged for allegedly conspiring to perform female genital mutilation on minors, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

    “FGM is a violation of human rights. It is an extreme form of discrimination against girls and women and we want Michigan to join 24 states that have outlawed FGM,” said Senator Rick Jones, R-Grand Ledge, sponsor of SB 338. […]

    Alle vier sunnitischen Rechtsschulen (Madhhab) befürworten die Beschneidung von Frauen. Die Schafiiten erklären sie explizit zur religiösen Pflicht. In den Ländern des Nahen Ostens und Ostafrikas, in denen die schafiitische Rechtsschule dominiert, ist die Beschneidung deshalb auch allgemein verbreitet. Auch einer überlieferten hanbalitischen Position zufolge ist die Beschneidung bei Frauen religiöse Pflicht. Für die Malikiten ist die Beschneidung Prophetentradition (sunna) und damit empfehlenswert, für die Hanafiten wie auch für manche Hanbaliten ist sie ehrenhaft (makruma).

    Beschneidungen von Frauen und Mädchen können nach Ansicht der Geschäftsführerin der Stiftung Weltbevölkerung, Renate Bähr, nicht mit einer bestimmten Religion in Verbindung gebracht werden. Die Hälfte der Fälle weltweit komme in Äthiopien, Ägypten und Indonesien vor, sagte Bähr am Samstag im Deutschlandradio Kultur. „Sie sehen, das ist sowohl ein christlich geprägtes Land wie Äthiopien, als aber auch ein eindeutig islamisches Land. Womit auch klar ist: Man kann es einer Religion direkt nicht zuordnen.“ Die Beschneidungen von Frauen und Mädchen seien „ein Ausdruck von patriarchalischen Strukturen“. […]

    • Encourage your swift and public condemnation of Jumana Nagarwala, M.D.;

    • Insist that you carry out a rigorous investigation into this practice in the community, seeking out any individuals who may have worked with Jumana Nagarwala M.D. to facilitate these crimes against girls and women;

    • Publically expose and dismantle any connection between Dr. Murtaza Hussain of Livernois Family Medical Center, his medical network and members in your organization;

    • Publish your findings and commitment to combat any and all forms of “khatna,” or FGM, within your community;

    • Publish your intent to expose and dismantle familial and community networks which facilitated the crime of “khatna” in the community;

    • Publish a much more vigorous condemnation of all forms of “khatna” to update your position of May 11, 2016 which will now globally condemn “khatna” in all its forms as an unnecessary, immoral, and un-Islamic violation of a girls’ bodily autonomy.

    Mosque leader took flight to India amid FBI probe

    By: Robert Snell | The Detroit News Published 02.05.2017 12:00 a.m. ET | Updated 2 hours ago

    Detroit — A leader of the Muslim sect embroiled in an alleged female genital mutilation conspiracy boarded a one-way flight to India on April 10 […]

    Two sources identified the leader as former mosque President Saifuddin Bhabrawala, whose three-year term ended before he flew from Detroit Metropolitan Airport on April 10, the day the genital mutilation scandal emerged publicly. He was detained by federal agents in conjunction with the female genital mutilation investigation and they searched his electronic devices before Bhabrawala flew to India, one source familiar with the man’s trip told The News. […]

    Bhabrawala has not been charged with a crime amid a continuing investigation. […]

    The mosque is part of the Dawoodi Bohra, a small Muslim sect based in India whose members practice the illegal mutilations, […]

    Local mosque officials are in charge of following strict orders from Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, the Dawoodi Bohra’s spiritual leader in India, said Isufali Kundawala, a Bohra and retired anesthesiologist near Dallas who has spoken out against female genital mutilation.

    “They are figureheads,” Kundawala said. “Nobody can dissent or you’re excommunicated. People literally kiss letters that come from the Syedna.” […]

    On April 12, two days after the flight and raid, Nagarwala was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport while trying to board a flight to Kenya.

    A source said Bhabrawala’s flight was planned before FBI agents raided the clinic because the leader’s three-year term had ended and he was moving back to India, where the sect is based.

    It is unclear exactly when Bhabrawala’s term as mosque president ended but his U.S. visa expires July 7 and he already had shipped his possessions back to India, a source said. […]

    Eine empirische Studie zu weiblicher Genitalverstümmelung in Deutschland
    Daten – Zusammenhänge – Perspektiven

    1. Einleitung

    In einer vom Bundesministerium für Familie, Senioren, Frauen und Jugend geförderten Studie hat INTEGRA, ein Netzwerk, das ausallen Organisationen in Deutschland besteht, die gegen weibliche Genitalverstümmelung kämpfen, unter Berücksichtigung von durch Ramboll Management Consulting erhobenen Daten vorliegende Studie zum Thema weibliche Genitalverstümmelung (Female Genital Mutilation / Female Genital Cutting, kurz: [FGM zu sagen reicht FGM / FGC ist nicht nötig] FGM_C) in Deutschland durchgeführt. […]

    2. Fokus der Studie
    2.1. Ausgangslage

    Weibliche Genitalverstümmelung ist eine Praktik, die in weiten Teilen Westafrikas, Ostafrikas und Zentralafrikas sowie in Ländern wie dem Jemen, dem Irak [Anm. d. Verf.: im Irak besonders bei den [meine Anm.: muslimischen, hier der schafiitischen Madhhab folgenden] Kurden], in Indonesien und Malaysia als kultureller Brauch weit verbreitet ist.

    [Aber dann, die Worte Religion oder Islam werden sorgfältig vermieden, hören wir von dem malaysischen Fatwa, dem (religiösen, dem islamischen versteht sich) Rechtsgutachten.

    Statt indonesische Muslimgelehrte sage man Ulama oder Islamgelehrte, Einzahl Alim, zumal Ulama im U von MUI enthalten ist: Majelis Ulama Indonesia.]

    3.1 Untersuchungsbereiche
    3.1.1 Länder

    […] wurde im fachlichen Austausch mit den Vertreterinnen von INTEGRA entschieden, die Länder Indonesien und Malaysia mit einzubeziehen.

    [Ein bisschen zu berücksichtigen („einzubeziehen“) reicht und dort oder anderswo den Islam einzubeziehen ist bekanntlich … nicht hilfreich.]

    […] hat eine Fatwa aus dem Jahr 2009 die Beschneidung weiblicher Genitalien in Malaysia zur Pflicht gemacht. In Indonesien veröffentlichte der indonesische Rat der Muslimgelehrten (MUI) 2008 eine Fatwa, in der eine neutrale Haltung gegenüber Beschneidung weiblicher Genitalien eingenommen wird.

    [MUI hat klargestellt, dass die Sunat Perempan (Islamic FGM) nicht verboten werden darf – und anlässlich der Veröffentlichung des Fatwa ergänzt, dass die Mädchenbeschneidung zu den Ibadat (Pflichten Allah gegenüber) gehört, mithin ernsthaftes islamisches Selbstverständnis und Leben ist. Eine wirklich neutrale Haltung hingegen würde das Kindergenital bedingungslos schützen, und das hat der MUI nun einmal nicht im Sinn.]

    […] sind nach INTEGRA sowie TERRE DES FEMMES in Indonesien und Malaysia Tendenzen zu beobachten, wonach die Praxis der FGM_C nicht zurückgehe, sondern eher zunehme. […]

    Aufgrund der schlechten Datenlage wird explizit darauf verzichtet, Länder wie Oman, Iran und Thailand zu berücksichtigen. Hier liegen keine (repräsentativen) Daten zur FGM_C-Prävalenz in diesen Ländern vor.

    [Es würde ja auch erst einmal reichen, zu sagen: Der Islam fordert mindestens von den Schafiiten zwingend (wadschib) die Beschneidung der Jungen und Mädchen, FGM ist Scharia – und dieser Islam, ein anderer ist noch nicht da, kann in Deutschland nicht (nämlich in Recht und Gesetz) integriert werden.]

    Alleged mutilations proceeded despite surveillance

    By Robert Snell | The Detroit News 03.05.2017

    Published 12:01 a.m. ET May 3, 2017 | Updated 7 hours ago

    Detroit — FBI agents were unable to stop a doctor from allegedly mutilating the genitalia of 7-year-old girls at a Livonia clinic despite installing a secret video camera outside the facility days earlier […]

    Multiple sources confirmed agents installed the camera outside the Burhani Medical Clinic in Livonia on Jan. 25, nine days before two Minnesota girls allegedly were brought to Metro Detroit for a procedure practiced by members of their small Shia Muslim sect, the Dawoodi Bohra. […]

    Dr. Fakhruddin Attar is charged alongside his wife, clinic manager Farida Attar, and Northville Dr. Jumana Nagarwala. The trio is accused of female genital mutilation, conspiring to commit female genital mutilation and trying to cover up the crimes.

    The doctors face up to life in prison if convicted of conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

    The Attars are due in federal court at 1 p.m. Wednesday, when a magistrate judge could release the Farmington Hills couple on bond. Nagarwala, meanwhile, is being held without bond pending a June 27 trial. […]

    First things first.

    Circumcision for a woman under Islam is not Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), circumcision in Islam refers to clitoral unhooding or clitoral hoodectomy, whereas FGM removes parts of the clitoris or the clitoris itself (clitoridectomy).

    The scholars agreed that circumcision for a woman is allowed but disagreed on whether it’s a obligation or something that is recommended as a prophetic guidance.

    .

    By: Anonymous
    Country: United States
    Age: 34

    Shortly after my seventh birthday, I went to visit my grandmother in New York. My mother told me this visit was going to be special because I turned seven and I had to have something “important done”. “All girls have to have it done when they turn seven,” I was told, just as my older sisters had it done before me. My mother said it was to ensure a “good marriage” when I am older. At the age of seven, this was a more than sufficient explanation for me. I just took this explanation as the norm, and even believed that women of all faiths and cultures must undergo the same experience. At the time, I had no idea that day would be life-changing for me on so many levels.

    The procedure harmed me physically. It was, unsurprisingly, botched, being conducted on a basement floor by an untrained older housewife in our community. But the message I was told that day – “this will help your marriage”, and messages I was subsequently told throughout my life “this is to make sure women’s urges are controlled”, “these things are done to make sure you are loyal to your husband”, “women need to appease their husband” – these messages are what truly did the most psychological harm. These messages have caused me to live a life in which I felt inferior to my partner and felt shame for all my natural urges/feelings. […]

    So by villainizing her, punishing her – you may scare some other doctors from conducting the practice. You may deter some other mothers from having their children undergo the procedure. But punishing her does not punish the true abusers. As long as the male leaders continue to advocate for this practice and maintain its importance in religious doctrine, followers will continue to adhere to the guidance of their respected leaders. My worst fear is that this public case mixed with continued pro-FGC messaging from our community will drive this practice underground even more. So instead of having doctors illegally practice in their sanitized clinics after hours – our girls will be subjected to experiences similar to mine – being cut by their grandmothers on an unsanitary cold basement floor.

    Detroit – A federal magistrate Wednesday ordered a Farmington Hills doctor and his wife jailed without bond pending trial, saying they are a danger to girls victimized in the country’s first female genital mutilation case.

    U.S. Magistrate Judge Elizabeth Stafford made the ruling after a two-hour hearing that featured defense attacks on the government’s evidence and provided new details on a case drawing international attention about a secretive, illegal procedure practiced by a small sect of Shia Muslims from India.

    Dr. Fakhruddin Attar and his wife, Farida Attar, did not react to the magistrate’s order, which deemed the couple a flight risk. They are accused of committing female genital mutilation, trying to cover up the crime and conspiring with Northville Dr. Jumana Nagarwala to cut girls as part of a procedure practiced by their religious and cultural community, the Dawoodi Bohra. […]

    Nagarwala also is being held without bond pending trial. […]

    Fakhruddin Attar’s lawyer Mary Chartier produced receipts showing the doctor was not at the clinic the night the girls allegedly were mutilated. […]

    “There is not one piece of evidence that Dr. Attar ever touched a child,” Chartier said.

    On Wednesday, lawyers for the Attars appeared to adopt Nagarwala’s defense, saying the operation was a religious procedure, not mutilation. […]

    Abū l-Faraǧ Ibn al-Ǧauzī (1116-1200) ist Verfasser eines Werkes sunnitischer Sexualpolitik (šarīʿa, islām) namens »Kitāb aḥkam an-nisāʾ«, das inzwischen dank der Arbeit der Hannelies Koloska (Übersetzerin, Herausgeberin) als »Ibn al-Djauzī: Das Buch der Weisungen für Frauen« auch in Deutscher Sprache erscheinen konnte (Verlag der Weltreligionen im Insel Verlag, Frankfurt am Main und Leipzig 2009).

    Kapitel 6 Von der Beschneidung der Frau. Die Beschneidung ist Pflicht bei Mann und Frau. Über die Sitte der Beschneidung überliefert Abū Dāwūd in seinem Sunan einen Hadith von Umm ʿAṭiya al-Anṣārīya In Medina gab es eine Frau, die beschnitt. Der Prophet, Gott segne ihn und schenke ihm Heil, sprach zu ihr: »Beschneide nicht viel! Das ist zum Vorteil der Frau und ist für den Mann anziehend.« Überliefert von Anas: »Der Prophet … sprach zu Umm ʿAṭiya: Wenn du beschneidest, beschneide nur wenig, so wie du auch nur wenig Parfüm aufträgst! Es macht sie angesehener und ist genussvoller für den Ehemann.«

    Abū ʿUthmān al-Baṣrī sagte, dass der Grund, warum die Frauen ursprünglich beschnitten wurden, nicht darin lag, die Schönheit zu vergrößern, ohne das Begehren zu schwächen, sondern allein der war, ihre Sittsamkeit zu erhöhen. Der Gesandte Gottes … meinte mit seiner Rede: »Beschneide nicht viel!«, dass man vom Geschlecht der Frau nur so viel abschneide, dass es ihr zu einem Grad der Mäßigung verhelfe, denn wenn die Begierde gänzlich abnimmt, versiegt auch der Genuss. Solches aber führt zur Verminderung der Liebe zwischen den Eheleuten, die bekanntermaßen eine Fessel ist, welche die Unzucht abhält.

    Einige der ehrbaren Leute pflegten über die Beschneidung zu sagen: »Beschneide nur das, was sichtbar ist!«

    Die meisten Sittsamen sind beschnitten.

    FGM in Indonesia hits alarming level

    by: Anggi M. Lubis and Hans Nicholas Jong | The Jakarta Post 06.02.2016

    Half of girls under 11 years old in Indonesia are circumcised, according to the latest finding by UNICEF, raising awareness and calls for bans on female genital mutilation (FGM) practices in the world’s most populous Muslim majority country. […]

    According to the data, 14-year-old girls and below represent 44 million of those who have been cut, and Indonesia is among the three countries with the highest prevalence of FGM among this age group, along with Gambia and Mauritania.

    UNICEF Indonesia spokeswoman Kinanti Pinta Karana said the survey indicated that 13.4 million Indonesian girls aged 11 and below might have undergone FGM. […]

    UNICEF data said prevalence of FGM in Indonesia was generally high in every province, with only Papua, East Nusa Tenggara and Bali recording one-digit percentages of circumcised girls in their respective populations. The practice is common in Jakarta, which is among the 10 provinces with the highest percentage of circumcised girls aged 11 and below, at 68.1 percent.

    FGM in Indonesia is strongly related to culture and religion. […]

    Singapore Comes Under Pressure Over Female Genital Cutting of Babies

    Medical clinics in Singapore are carrying out female genital cutting on babies […]

    Filzah Sumartono of women’s rights group Aware […] „In my own circle of friends who are Malay and Muslim, 100 percent have been cut,“ said Sumartono, who was cut herself at one month old.

    „But it is very hidden. Whenever I bring up the subject with non-Malay they’re shocked and can’t believe it happens in Singapore.“ […]

    Sumartono said the practice — known locally as sunat perempuan — was usually done before the age of two and may involve cutting the tip of the clitoris [ FGM Type Ib ] or making a small nick [FGM Type IV]. […]

    „We know five or six clinics offer the procedure — at around 20-35 Singapore dollars ($15-$26),“ she added. „There’s no legislation. It’s done openly. You can just call up to make an appointment.“ […]

    Female circumcision, if done in the proper manner as prescribed by our Prophet Mohammad, ought to be continued,“ one Malay woman from Singapore, who has recently had her granddaughter cut, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

    […] She said the amount [Menge, Quantum] removed was „very tiny“ and should not be classed as FGM

    […] The World Health Organization, however, says FGM includes any injury to the female genitals. […]

    Research suggests sunat perempuan [ Islamic FGM ] is common among Muslim Malays in Malaysia, which neighbors Singapore, and is also practised in Brunei and part of southern Thailand. […]

    Ayaan Hirsi Ali: Culture ‚Never An Excuse‘ To Harm Girls With Genital Mutilation

    Human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali reacted to a Detroit surgeon being charged with genital mutilation of a young girl in the ER. Ali, who was subjected to the grisly practice in Somalia, said Dr. Jumana Nagarwala must be punished for her alleged actions. She said young girls are taken either overseas or to states without a ban on the practice to have their private parts surgically mutilated. In Nagarwala’s case, a Minnesota girl was taken to Michigan because her home state banned the surgery. Ali said the reasoning for the operation, which suppresses libido and better ensures virginity, is often cultural or related to Islam. Tucker Carlson said every legislator and women’s rights group should be actively opposing the practice.

    Though there are federal laws governing the issue, Ali said there are 26 states without a ban on the operation. „We cannot sacrifice little girls on the altar of identity politics,“ she said, noting that it is often the obscene nature of the operation that makes discussion of it taboo. Ali said her „AHA“ foundation works to prevent the operation from continuing, and helps protect the half-million girls at risk of having it done to them.

    State tries to strip parental rights in mutilation case

    by: Robert Snell (Jonathan Oosting contributed) · The Detroit News 05.-06-05.2017

    Detroit — Child welfare officials moved Friday to terminate the parental rights of as many as five families from a small Shia Muslim sect in Metro Detroit, alleging their children are victims of female genital mutilation, a lawyer said.

    The initial moves could impact as many as 12 children from the families in Oakland and Wayne counties and sent waves of fear rippling across the local Dawoodi Bohra community. […]

    The two doctors and Attar’s wife are members of the Dawoodi Bohra religious community based locally out of the Anjuman-e-Najmi mosque on Orchard Lake Road in Farmington Hills. It’s the only Dawoodi Bohra mosque in Michigan.

    The Dawoodi Bohras hail mostly from western India and were traditionally comprised of businessmen, entrepreneurs and professionals. There are about 1 million followers worldwide.

    Sect members were linked to a cutting scandal in Australia two years ago.

    Three Dawoodi Bohras faced trial in Australia in a case that raised awareness of female genital mutilation. The case ended in prison sentences for the three, including a Dawoodi Bohra community leader.

    Die islamische Praxis der Mädchenbeschneidung bringt den Frauen unerhörte Wohltaten!

    How Misogynists and Feminists are feeding upon each other to denigrate an Islamic practice that brings untold benefits to women

    Was der Islam zur Entwicklung der Wissenschaft beigetragen hat? What has Islam contributed to the development of science?

    Umm Atiyya, die Mädchen zu beschneiden pflegte. Umm Attiyya who used to circumcise girls.

    Asiff Hussein:

    Every Muslim was required to undergo a basic surgery in the form of circumcision […] It was not only men, but also women who practiced medicine. Women were especially needed for treating female patients and to serve as gynaecologists and obstreticians. Even in the Prophet’s time there was a lady surgeon of sorts, Umm Attiyya who used to circumcise girls and a nurse Rufayda who took care of the wounded following the Battle of the Trench fought in the Prophet’s day. The tradition continued to Ottoman times

    _ttp://asiffhussein.com/2015/12/14/what-has-islam-contributed-to-the-development-of-science/

    Der Verteidiger des Glaubens und der FGM Asiff Hussein:

    Even the early scholars of Islam compared uncleanliness to devilishness. For instance there was Ibn Qayyim who said in his Ahkam al Mawlood: “What is more beautiful than to cut what is too long and exceeds limits in the foreskin, the pubis, the armpit and moustache and the fingernails ? The Devil is hidden inside of all of these, is acquinted with it and lives in it. He blows in the penis and the vagina of the uncircumcised more than in those of the circumcised. He hides himself inside the hair of the pubis”. […]

    The first of these, circumcision involves the removal of the foreskin in the case of males and the prepuce of the clitoris in the case of females. In the case of men, it helps to keep the penis clean and free of germs and prevents urine getting trapped beneath the foreskin. In the case of females, it frees the clitoris of its prepuce, a useless bit of skin that gives out a bad smell and breeds germs that can harm their genital health as well as their male partners. Once done it lasts a lifetime since it is not something you can undo. Likewise the benefits it confers you lasts a lifetime. Circumcision also marks one as a Muslim, like initiation in tribal societies that brings about loyalty. It gives one the feeling of having sacrificed a part of oneself, however small, for purifying the self for the sake of the faith. […]

    In Islam circumcision is very strongly stressed, with most scholars of the view that it is obligatory or at any rate strongly prescribed in the faith. Some are of the view that it t ought to be more stressed in the case of males than of females, but this is erroneous. That circumcision like the other fitra acts should apply equally to females as much as males goes without saying as both sexes have a prepuce, a fold of unclean skin covering the erectile tissue of their genitals that serves a breeding ground for germs. Besides, it is a well established principle of Islam that males and females are to be treated equally in all respects where they are similar and there can be no doubt that in this respect they are indeed similar. It is also agreed that if a practice is not mentioned specifically as being applicable to one gender only or if pronouns do not indicate a certain gender, then it is applicable to both sexes. What’s more there are numerous sayings of the Prophet that stress on its importance specifically in the case of females. […]

    Circumcision is my way for men and ennobling in women

    (Baihaqi)

    This suggests that both male and female circumcision was recognized by the Prophet as Islamic acts. The term he used for both was khitan. In the original Arabic: Al-khitanu sunnatun li ar-rijali makrumatun li an-nisa. The different uses of the word ‘the way’ for men and ‘ennobling’ for women does not necessarily affect the obligatory character of circumcision in the case of females for the simple reason that it would have been quite inappropriate to apply the term sunnat ‘ (Prophet’s) way’ for the female operation. Similarly, the term makruma or ennobling used in the case of women need not affect its obligatory character since it merely indicates the fact that women are ennobled by it. […]

    Even early Arabic literature testifies to the fact that female circumcision was thought to be obligatory by the community. […]

    All Islam requires is the removal of only the prepuce of the clitoris, a fold of useless skin covering the clitoris like a hood […]

    saying of the Prophet:

    When you circumcise, cut plainly (in a shallow manner) and do not cut deeply, for it is beauty for the face and desirable for the husband

    (Aboo Dawood & Tabarani)

    This clearly indicates what needs to be done in the circumcision of girls. The words “Cut plainly and do not cut deeply” is to be understood […]

    Islamic Law on Female Circumcision

    by: Answering Islam

    The Arabic word baZr does not mean „prepuce of the clitoris“, it means the clitoris itself (cf. the entry in the Arabic-English Dictionary). The deceptive translation by Nuh Ha Mim Keller, made for Western consumption, obscures the Shafi’i law, given by ‘Umdat al-Salik, that circumcision of girls by excision of the clitoris is mandatory. This particular form of female circumcision is widely practiced in Egypt, where the Shafi’i school of Sunni law is followed.

    Especially alarming, Raben said, was that the families were interrogated days before the doctor was even charged. Raben said she was contacted by two Bohra families in April, about two days before criminal charges were formally announced against Nagarwala. She said parents told her that their daughters had been pulled out of their classes and questioned at school about genital mutilation.

    Die Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) hat 1998 eine Definition für die weibliche Genitalverstümmelung – englisch: Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) – veröffentlicht: „FGM umfasst alle Verfahren, die die teilweise oder vollständige Entfernung der weiblichen äußeren ­Genitalien oder deren Verletzung zum Ziel haben, sei es aus kulturellen oder anderen nichttherapeutischen Gründen.“

    Die WHO definiert vier Typen weiblicher Genitalverstümmelung (FGM Typ I, II, III, IV), beispielsweise:

    Typ I: Untertyp Ia: Partielle oder vollständige Entfernung der Klitorisvorhaut. Untertyp Ib: Partielle oder vollständige Entfernung der Klitoris (Klitoridektomie).

    Typ IV: Alle anderen schädigenden Eingriffe, die die weiblichen Genitalien verletzen und keinem medizinischen Zweck dienen, zum Beispiel: Einstechen, Durchbohren, Einschneiden, Ausschaben, Ausbrennen, Verätzen oder Dehnen.

    Aktivisten für allgemeine Menschenrechte und für Frauen- und Kinderrechte treten den Versuchen entgegen, den Standard der WHO-Kategorie aufzuweichen, aufzuspalten in einen weiterhin verbotenen und einen dann straffrei gestellten Teil, der etwa die Chatna oder Sunna umfasst (meistens eine FGM Typ I oder Typ IV).

    Erstmals in der Geschichte der USA begann im April 2017 ein Strafprozess nach 18 USC 116 (female genital mutilation), nachdem in Detroit, Michigan, die Ärztin Dr. Jumana Nagarwala sowie die Eheleute Attar angezeigt worden sind. Die drei Beschuldigten sind Angehörige der schiitischen Dawudi Bohra.

    So etwas wie eine geringfügige FGM gibt es nicht. Treten wir dafür ein, dass noch die geringst invasive Form der weiblichen Genitalverstümmelung verboten bleibt oder verboten wird – überall auf der Welt.

    Zuerst bei: Giordano Bruno Stiftung (gbs) 08.05.2017, hier bei: Humanistischer Pressedienst (hpd) 08.05.2017

    (Zum fünften Jahrestag des „Kölner Urteils“ legen Dr. iur. Ralf Eschelbach (Richter am Bundesgerichtshof), Prof. Dr. med. Matthias Franz (Universitätsklinikum Düsseldorf) und Prof. Dr. iur. Jörg Scheinfeld (Universitäten Mainz und Wiesbaden) ein gemeinsames Papier vor, in dem sie die zentralen Argumente der Beschneidungsdebatte zusammenfassen und die Parlamentarier nachdrücklich zum Handeln aufrufen. Ihr Text zeigt auf, dass die Politiker bei der Verabschiedung des Beschneidungsgesetzes von fehlerhaften Informationen ausgingen und dazu verleitet wurden, eine Einsicht zu ignorieren, die in einem modernen Rechtsstaat selbstverständlich sein sollte, nämlich dass der Intimbereich von Jungen ebenso unverfügbar sein muss wie der Intimbereich von Mädchen.)

    ___

    „Das Parlament hat die Pflicht, das Beschneidungsgesetz abzuschaffen“

    […] Die Vorhaut ist eine bedeutsame erogene Zone (!), sie ist wegen der nervalen Ausstattung der sensibelste Teil des Penis. Sie ist in Funktion und Sensibilität am ehesten vergleichbar den Fingerkuppen, den Augenlidern, den kleinen Schamlippen, dem Anus und den Lippen. […]

    Eingriffe am Genital von Mädchen werden, auch wenn religiös motiviert, zumeist mit mindestens einem Jahr Freiheitsstrafe belegt.

    Einer redlichen Diskussion dieser Diskrepanz öffnet sich zunächst einmal nur derjenige, der anerkennt, was unbestreitbar ist: Es gibt Genitalbeschneidungen an Mädchen, die in puncto Eingriffstiefe nicht schwerer wiegen als die Penisvorhautbeschneidung beim Jungen. Dazu zählt etwa die so genannte milde Sunna, die Beschneidung der Klitorisvorhaut. […]

    Das Abtrennen der erogenen Zone Vorhaut vom Penis des Kindes ist ein erheblicher Eingriff in die Körperintegrität und sogar in den Intimbereich. Der Akt erfüllt zumindest den Straftatbestand der einfachen Körperverletzung, und er verletzt mehrere Grundrechte des Kindes: das Recht auf körperliche Unversehrtheit, das Persönlichkeitsrecht des Kindes und seine Würde durch Eingriff in die sexuelle Selbstbestimmung – sowie bei religiöser Beschneidung das Recht auf negative Religionsfreiheit durch das Prägen des Körpers mit einem unauslöschlichen religiösen Identifikationsmerkmal.

    Eine Legitimation für einen solch tiefen und unumkehrbaren Eingriff in den Körper gibt den Eltern weder die eigene Religionsfreiheit noch das Elternrecht zur Pflege und Erziehung des Kindes: Die präventiv-medizinische Sinnlosigkeit der Jungenbeschneidung steht der Annahme elterlicher „Pflege“ entgegen; der tiefe, unumkehrbare und gewaltsame Eingriff in den genitalen Intimbereich der reifenden Persönlichkeit des Kindes verbietet die Annahme zulässiger religiöser „Erziehung“ (ohnehin „erziehen“ die Eltern nicht durch Operierenlassen); der Akt stellt sich deshalb dar als eine Anmaßung, die vollendete Tatsachen schafft. Dass die Jungenbeschneidung das Kindeswohl nicht gefährde, darf auch der Gesetzgeber nicht begründungslos herbeifingieren, wie er es im Erlaubnisgesetz versucht hat; dieses Gesetz ist mit den genannten Grundrechten der Jungen unvereinbar und als verfassungswidrig vom Bundesverfassungsgericht für nichtig zu erklären. […]

    Die richtige Rechtslage zu finden, ist auch sehr simpel: Weil die Jungenbeschneidung mit mancher Form der Mädchenbeschneidung vergleichbar ist, muss schlicht die für Mädchen geltende Gesetzeslage auf Jungen übertragen werden. Die Beschneidung der Klitorisvorhaut verletzt das Persönlichkeitsrecht und die Würde des Mädchens, dieselben Rechte von Jungen verletzt die Jungenbeschneidung.

    Die Würde der Kinder zu schützen, ist nach unserer Verfassung „Verpflichtung aller staatlichen Gewalt“. Die Kölner Richter haben diese Pflicht erfüllt, die Parlamentarier müssen das nun nachholen und ein heilungssinnloses Herumschneiden an Kindergenitalien ausnahmslos für rechtswidrig erklären.

    An Ontario couple charged with having their 11-year-old daughter circumcised in their home are being held in custody while the court determines whether they should go free.

    The court case may provide rare evidence the surgical procedure, which is illegal in Canada under laws on female genital mutilation but is still widely practised in some parts of Africa and the Middle East, is being conducted in Canada.

    The identities of the parents, who live in St. Catharines, Ont., are not being released to protect the identity of the girl, now 13. […]

    The mother, 42, and father, 47, are very distressed by the charges, said their lawyer, Keith Newell.

    Police will not reveal the religious or cultural background of the family, since such specific information could possibly identify the girl in a community with as small a multi-cultural population as St. Catharines. […]

    Parents charged in genital mutilation

    The girl’s parents were each charged with aggravated assault this week in connection with allegations that a genital-cutting operation was done by a „practitioner“ in their St. Catharines home.

    The father faces an additional assault charge over allegations that the girl, now 13, was struck several times on the back over the past two years with a belt, said Sergeant James Mackay of the Niagara Regional Police.

    „We’re not releasing the location of the child or whose care she is in,“ he said in a telephone interview yesterday. „That’s done to protect the identity of the child.“ [….]

    Female circumcision charges dropped | Parental role in mutilation unverifiable

    By Anne Marie Owens | National Post Thursday, October 03, 2002 | National Post 03.10.2002

    Police said the parents, who are Sudanese, arranged for a practitioner to perform the surgical procedure, […]

    The Crown attorney’s office told court in St. Catharines yesterday it was withdrawing aggravated assault charges against the parents because it had been unable to determine whether the circumcision had taken place in Canada or another country. […]

    Evidence from medical experts and the parents themselves indicated it was never in dispute that some form of genital mutilation had taken place. What was at issue in the case was whether the surgery had occurred in Canada, under the direction of the parents.

[…] Nagarwala’s case, the first to be filed under 18 U.S.C. 116, the Federal law that criminalizes female genital mutilation, has opened the eyes of many Americans, who are shocked that FGM is practiced on our soil. Perhaps it’s time they think more about what doctors routinely do to little boys. […]

    “Be a hero, don’t circumcise your daughter or son.”

    My real concern is that the US and Europe will soon legalize some “mild” forms of the Classification of female genital mutilation (FGM). Every form of FGM should be banned everywhere.

    „Female genital mutilation comprises all procedures involving partial or total removal of the external female genitalia or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons (WHO, UNICEF, UNFPA, 1997).“

    Classification of female genital mutilation

    There’s no such thing as ‚mild‘ FGM.

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

    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.

    Flogging or stoning an adulterer is illegal, marrying a nine year old bride is illegal. Khatna, FGM is illegal.

    Khatna (FGM) is religion (Islam). You can believe in FGM – you can not perform FGM.

    (Edward von Roy)

    Rituals can include singing, dancing, and certainly also religious devotions, but no operations on the body of a child (a child is a human being below the age of eighteen years).

    We should not cut or circumcize (i. e. mutilate) genitals, neither of male nor of female human beings. Male circumcision is male genital mutilation. Concerning the sensitivity (corpuscles respectively free nerve ends of the types: Merkel, Ruffini, Vater-Pacini, Meissner), the male foreskin has its equivalent not in the female (clitoral) foreskin, but in the clitoris itself.

    Everyone has a right to intact genitalia. Here, children are dependent on our protection. We as the adults in this world must enforce that a child under the age of 18 years, girl or boy, is protected from any form of genital cutting.

    As is well known, Islamic institutions such as the Indonesian Fatwa Council (MUI – Majelis Ulama Indonesia) do not call the “mild” forms of girls’ circumcision a mutilation (FGM). We see that differently. Even the least invasive form of girls’ circumcision has to be overcome, worldwide.

    And of course boys deserve the same protection as girls.

    „Die Internationale Union Muslimischer Gelehrter (arabisch الاتحاد العالمي لعلماء المسلمين, DMG al-Ittiḥād al-ʿĀlamī li-ʿUlamāʾ al-Muslimīn, englisch International Union of Muslim Scholars; Abk. IUMS) ist eine internationale pan-islamische Nichtregierungsorganisation, deren Gründungskonferenz 2004 in London stattfand. Derzeitiger Generalsekretär ist Ali al-Qaradaghi.

    Ihr Hauptsitz befand sich am Islamischen Kulturzentrum von Irland (ICCI), Berichten zufolge soll er vor Mai 2012 nach Katar verlegt worden sein.

    Präsident ist Scheich Yusuf al-Qaradawi. Vizepräsidenten sind der Mufti des Oman Ahmed bin Hamad al-Chalili (Ibaditen), Scheich Abdullah bin Bayya [Mauretanien] (Sunniten, Malikiten), Ayatollah Mohammed Ali Taschiri (Schiiten), Ayatollah Muhammad Wa’id Zadeh Churasani (Schiiten).

    Bereits die FGM selbst definiert Mohammed Selim al-Awa (Mohamed Selim El-Awa) nicht wie alleine korrekt, nämlich als vollständige WHO-Klassifikation. Speziell FGM Typ IV Einschnitte oder Einstiche lässt er wohl einfach aus. Allgemein verdient er (auch damit) unser Vertrauen nicht in Bezug auf das, was für ihn ein intaktes weibliches Genital eigentlich ist.

    In Antwort 5 wird es vollends abenteuerlich – der Generalsekretär der International Federation of Islamic Scholars listet Länder auf, in denen es keine weibliche Genitalverstümmelung gebe, gar keine:

    Most Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia, the Gulf states, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, Indonesia, Malaysia etc. are not familiar with this practice.

    Saudi-Arabien, die Golfstaaten, Syrien, Indonesien, Malaysia – das alles sind bekannte FGM-Gebiete. Es ist doch wohl ausgeschlossen, dass al-Awa keine Kenntnis von der extrem stark verbreiteten indonesischen FGM hat – hochwahrscheinlich belügt er uns also.

    Es ist anzunehmen, dass der Salafi die südostasiatische sunat perempuan (chitan wanita) nicht als Genitalverstümmelung verbucht wissen möchte.

    Antwort 6, islamisch verboten sei: „das Abschneiden von Organen und das Verursachen von Schädigungen eines Menschen, the cutting of organs and harming of people“, was, wenn das am weiblichen Geschlechtsorgan möglicherweise doch islamrechtlich einwandfrei Abzuschneidende einfach nicht „Organ“ ist. Was, wenn im Einklang mit Koran und Sunna an der Vulva geritzt, gestochen, eingeschnitten oder auch abgeschnitten wird, aber – aus Sicht von al-Awa wohlgemerkt! – kein Beschädigen, kein Schaden (harming) stattfindet.

    Die ägyptischen Schiiten hingegen verteidigt er schon mal. Unrühmlich bekanntgeworden hingegen ist al-Awa für Hetze gegen Kopten: Die koptische Kirche würde angeblich eine Frau gefangen halten, die zum Islam konvertieren möchte. Die Kirche würde überhaupt einen Staat im Staat bilden. Sie würde heimlich Waffen horten, um diese gegen Muslime einzusetzen.

    In 2010 he alleged that the Coptic Church had kidnapped a Coptic woman to prevent her converting to Islam. El-Awa accused the Church, in an interview to Al-Jazeera at the time, of acting as a “state within a state,” saying that it was unacceptable that the government turned a blind eye to the Church taking the convert hostage. He also claimed that the Church was smuggling and hiding weapons to use them against Muslims.

    Eine 35-jährige Geschäftsfrau aus Dubai, die im Alter von siebeneinhalb Jahren beschnitten wurde, sagte:

    „Für uns ist das eine religiöse Handlung. Allerdings ist die Weise, in der sie wiedergegeben worden ist, wirklich hässlich. Ich bin Muslim und folge der Scharia, und mein Gefühl sagt mir, dass nichts an der Praxis weiblicher Beschneidung falsch ist.“

    […] When The Hindu spoke to well-educated and well-placed Bohra women from across the world, who had gathered in Nairobi, Kenya, for the inauguration of an Arabic academy by their religious leader Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, each one echoed the same sentiment.

    “It is a religious practice for us. But the way it has been portrayed is extremely nasty. I am a Muslim and I follow Shariat, and I feel there is nothing wrong with the practice of female circumcision,” said a 35-year-old Dubai-based businesswoman who was cut at the age of seven-and-a-half.

    [Hier Nebel geworfen und zusätzlich verharmlost. Die islamische Chatna kann eine FGM Ia sein, aber ebensogut eine FGM Ib oder II oder IV. Gerade auch bei den Dawudi Bohra ist die Teilamputation oder Amputation nicht der Klitorisvorhaut, sondern der Klitoris immer wieder nachgewiesen worden.

    Erstens steht die Intaktheit der Klitoris islamisch jederzeit zur Disposition und zweitens ist und bleibt selbst ein Einschnitt oder Nadelstich weibliche Genitalverstümmelung (Female genital mutilation), FGM.

    “For me, it is no different than child sexual abuse,” says Insia Dariwala, co-founder of Sahiyo, an organisation that is working towards ending the practice of khatna.

    Ms. Dariwala says a strong FGM law needs be incorporated within the already existing Protection of Children from Sexual Offenses (POCSO) Act in India. “Any practice, religious or otherwise, if it causes physical or mental trauma to an innocent child, should be discontinued,” she said.

    Und sogleich – im Kommentarbereich – eilt der Verteidiger der Schariagesetze und Mädchenbeschneidungen heran, Asiff Hussein.

    15 days ago

    A well written and balanced article. Female circumcision is certainly an Islamic duty whether practiced by Bohras or by the rest of us in the Muslim world. It is not genital mutilation at all. It involves removing the skin (prepuce) around the clitoris which enhances, not curbs women’s sexuality. This procedure allows the clitoris to be exposed for greater stimulation since it does away with the prepuce which serves as an obstacle to sexual satisfaction. The clitoral prepuce also harbours germs such as the cancer-causing HPV.

    Seit vielen Jahren seltsam begeistert, erzählt Asiff Hussein auch 2017 die (vom US-amerikanischen Sufischeic Nuh Ha Mim Keller stammende) Lüge, dass die Koran und Sunna folgende Mädchenbeschneidung (FGM) die Klitoris intakt lasse, ja sogar für die Frau lusterhöhend sei, eine wahre Orgasmusgarantie.

    Den Umstand, dass ja die körperlich ausgewachsene – 18 Jahre und älter – Frau selbst über die Anwendung einer (angeblichen) luststeigernden OP entscheiden könnte, übergeht Asiff Hussein, der Freund des Mädchenbeschneidens (Islamic FGM).

    2 more couples’ custody at risk in mutilation case

    by: Oralandar Brand-Williams, The Detroit News 19.05.2017

    Two more Metro Detroit couples face petitions from state welfare officials seeking to terminate their parental rights amidst a growing federal investigation into female genital mutilation [ FGM ].

    The two couples, who have not been charged, went before a Wayne County juvenile judge Friday for a pretrial hearing on the state’s bid to strip their custody. Also before the court: a third custody case involving Dr. Jumana Nagarwala […]

    Two other couples, not charged in the case, also are subjects of a complaint by state welfare officials to end their parental right. In a hearing May 9, an Oakland County Juvenile Court referee allowed the couples of both children to remain with them while the mutilation investigation continues.

    Female genital mutilation (FGM) is accepted in all four Sunni Muslim madhahib of fiqh (schools of Islamic jurisprudence).

    Ijma’a (consensus by scholars)

    The Shafi’i school considers female circumcision to be wajib (obligatory).
    The Hanbali school considers female circumcision to be makruma (honorable) and strongly encouraged, to obligatory.
    The Maliki school considers female circumcision to be sunna (optional) and preferred.
    The Hanafi school considers female circumcision to be sunna (preferred).

    _____

    • The Hanafi view is that it is a sunna (optional act) for both females and males;

    • Maliki hold the view that it is wajib (obligatory) for males and sunna (optional) for females;

    • Shafi’i view it as wajib (obligatory) for both females and males;

    • Hanbali have two opinions:
    – it is wajib (obligatory) for both males and females
    – it is wajib (obligatory) for males and makrumah (honourable) for females.

    Einwilligungsfähige Minderjährige

    Der Beginn der Einwilligungsfähigkeit ist nicht an ein Mindestalter gebunden. Bei Kindern und Jugendlichen muss der Arzt vor einer Behandlung daher prüfen, inwieweit diese bereits einwilligungsfähig sind. Die Einwilligung eines Minderjährigen ist dem Bundesgerichtshof (BGH) zufolge dann rechtswirksam, wenn dieser „nach seiner geistigen und sittlichen Reife die Bedeutung und Tragweite des Eingriffs und seiner Gestattung zu ermessen vermag“. Ein Minderjähriger kann somit einwilligungsfähig sein, bevor er volljährig ist. Das Entscheidungsrecht in Bezug auf medizinische Behandlungen wird dennoch bis zur Volljährigkeit den Sorgeberechtigten überlassen. Kritiker sehen darin einen Wertungswiderspruch, da einem Minderjährigen einerseits die Einwilligungsfähigkeit zugeschrieben werden kann, er andererseits aber in Abhängigkeit der Fürsorge seiner Eltern belassen wird. Argumentiert wird, dass Kinder und Jugendliche laut der von Deutschland ratifizierten UN-Kinderrechtskonvention ein Recht darauf haben, dass ihre Meinung gehört und bei allen sie betreffenden Entscheidungen angemessen berücksichtigt wird. In der Forschungsliteratur im Bereich der Kinderheilkunde, Sozialpädiatrie und der Kinderpsychologie plädieren Autoren daher vermehrt für das Konzept der kindlichen Zustimmung bzw. des Vetos. Analog zu dem Konzept der informierten Einwilligung, das bei Erwachsenen in der klinischen Praxis mittlerweile standardmäßig angewendet wird, sollten, so die Autoren, auch Kinder und Jugendliche in ihre Behandlungsentscheidungen mit einbezogen werden.

    Für Menschen, die die Menschenrechte verletzen, dürfe es keine Toleranz geben, sagte Aus der Au. Doch in der konkreten Begegnung etwa mit Muslimen gebe es in der Hinsicht nicht nur schwarz und weiß. Wenn beispielsweise eine Muslima hierzulande mit ihrer Tochter zum Frauenarzt komme, um aus religiöser Tradition heraus deren Schamlippen zu beschneiden, sei das gegen die Menschenrechte. Doch weigerte sich der Arzt, das zu tun, würden sie möglicherweise zu einem „Kurpfuscher“ gehen, der die Gesundheit der jungen Frau gefährde. Deshalb könnte der Arzt den Eingriff gegen seine eigentliche Überzeugung vornehmen und dann gemeinsam mit Betroffenen etwas gegen diese religiöse Praxis unternehmen.

    Berlin 2017: Schweizer Spitzentheologin ruft evangelische Christen zur Toleranz auf in Bezug auf die Mädchenbeschneidung

    FGM-freundliche Propaganda auf Deutschlands evangelischem Kirchentag 2017. Weil die Scharia, weil das Islamische Recht mindestens für alle Schafiiten sowie für die schiitischen Dawudi Bohra die männliche ebenso wie die weibliche Beschneidung nun einmal fordert und weil die EKD den Islam pauschal prima findet, ist die evangelische Verteidigung des Chitan al-inath (sunat perempuan, FGM) durchaus konsequent.

    Gott ist großzügig, alles darf sein, auch die FGM-Kritik ist integriert ins Mädchenbeschneiden. Religiös (islamisch) die Mädchen zu beschneiden, deutet die Islamschönfärberin und Theologin aus Basel an, sei die beste Möglichkeit, die Mädchenbeschneidung (FGM) früher oder später überwinden, gemeinsam zu überwinden.

    Im christlich-muslimischen Dialog gemeinsam die FGM praktizieren für den Erhalt der FGM oder auch gegen die FGM. Im Hier und Jetzt die Mädchen gemäß einer FGM Typ II beschneiden, ihnen die Schamlippen ganz oder teilweise amputieren, selbstredend medizintechnisch modern amputieren, keimfrei, um gemeinsam mit den Scheichen und Muftis etwas gegen diese Islamic FGM zu tun.

    Zugleich gibt Christina Aus der Au ganz die treu bekümmerte Seelsorgerin der dann schließlich mädchenbeschneidenden Ärzte. Der Arzt im Deutschland von morgen kann, ja er darf Irritation, Unbehagen, Widerwillen verspüren gegen das Mädchenbeschneiden, dafür hat die gottesfürchtige Frau Aus der Au tiefes Verständnis, solange der Doktor auf mütterlichen Wunsch nur zum Skalpell greift.

    Er kann die FGM schätzen oder verabscheuen, sie für religiös wertvoll oder für unethisch halten, die Labienamputation mag seinen Übezeugungen völlig widersprechen! Das macht nichts, denn der Mediziner soll ja lediglich islamfreundlich handeln, das Mädchen beschneiden. Ob innerlich Beschneidungsfreund oder Beschneidungsgegner, der Arzt soll das Mädchen, auch gegen seine ärztliche Auffassung, am kindlichen Geschlechtsteil irreparabel versehren dürfen.

    Was soll das? Was wollte die EKD 2017 mit dieser fürchterlich gottesfürchtigen Frau aus der Schweiz?

    Die Einheit der Klassifikation der FGM ist beizubehalten. Keine Form der Mädchenbeschneidung darf, hierzulande wie weltweit, erlaubt sein, auch nicht die Sunna bzw. milde Sunna.

    Die Evangelische Kirche sollte sich dafür schämen, dieser FGM-Versteherin eine Bühne geboten zu haben.

    Perlis mufti decrees female circumcision optional, says no proof it cuts libido

    Malay Mail Online 08.06.2017

    KUALA LUMPUR, June 8 ― Perlis mufti Datuk Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin announced yesterday that the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) or circumcision not only has no basis in Islam, but may cause harm among infants if done improperly.

    The Perlis fatwa committee had decided in meeting in April 18 and 19 together with Islamic scholars and medical experts, that there is no proof that the ritual will reduce libido among women, a factor that is regularly cited as one of the reasons behind FGM.

    “Female circumcision that is done by certain parts of the society without reviewing its necessity with experts is a practise that has no basis in Shariah, furthermore it may expose infants to harm if done incorrectly,” said the committee’s decision, as announced by Asri on his official Facebook page.

    In Malaysia, the most prevalent form of FGM among Muslims is Type I, where midwives or doctors remove the clitoral hood of women, usually when they are still infants or children.

    Some practise Type IV, a ritual form which included pricking or nicking of the genitals.

    The mufti’s decree goes against a reported declaration by the national fatwa committee in April 2009 that FGM is obligatory among Muslim women.

    Similarly, the office of Federal Territories mufti Datuk Zulkifli Mohamad said last year that the FGM is obligatory in Islam.

    The Perlis fatwa however said that not all women are required to undergo FGM and the decision is up to “experts”.

    The decree did not specify the requirement for a woman to undergo FGM, but said it is an “honour” for those who need to go through with it. […]

    Worldwide, more than 200 million girls and women are believed to have undergone FGM, according to United Nations figures.

    In Indonesia, women’s minister Yohana Yembise had embarked on a renewed campaign against FGM starting last year despite opposition from religious leaders, while in Singapore, it was reported that medical clinics perform FGM in secret for the Muslim community.

    MUMBAI: At a time when voices of dissent against khatna or female genital mutilation (FGM) performed on little girls in the Dawoodi Bohra community are getting stronger, a group of six Bohra women, including two doctors, have formed a group called Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom (DBWRF) in support of female circumcision.

    While the subject is still being debated in legal and medical circles in India, the involvement of two doctors as founders of the group endorsing khatna or khafz – a procedure where a pinch of skin from the clitoral hood of girls between the ages of six and twelve is sliced off on religious grounds, in silence and secrecy – can warrant action if brought to the attention of the Indian Medical Association (IMA), Dr KK Aggarwal, national president of the IMA, told TOI on Thursday.

    „DBWRF has been formed to give voice to mainstream Dawoodi Bohra women who have been taken for granted as a community. We are here to say that we have a right under the constitution to practise something that is harmless. We don’t need a law that victimises a minority community,“ claimed Dr Fatema Jetpurwala, a homeopath and specialist in neuro-developmental disabilities at Saifee Hospital who is among the founders alongside Dr Alefiya Bapai, a gynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon at Saifee Hospital; Nafisa Kagalwala, a teacher; Batul Ratlamwala, a home chef; Rashida Diwan, an educator; and Johra Attarwala, a counsellor.

    Her lawyer, Shannon Smith, said Dr. Nagarwala acknowledged “removing a sesame seed-sized amount of mucous membrane” from the clitoral hood.

    “What she did does not meet the definition of female genital mutilation,” Ms. Smith said, calling it “a ritual nick” and “a protected religious procedure.”

    Het is uiterst gevaarlijk om te suggereren dat de medische beroepsgroep een bepaalde vorm van meisjesbesnijdenis zou moeten medicaliseren.

    „Medicalisering van de ingreep (om ondeskundig uitgevoerde VGV te vermijden) neemt de schade van de verminking niet weg en kan bovendien een schijn van legitimering wekken.“

    The 36th German Protestant Kirchentag in Berlin and Wittenberg is thinking about Female Genital Mutilation, FGM: Better to circumcise the Muslim girl at the doctor than in the back room at the charlatan

    ( What does the Protestant cleric mean? How much can a German doctor cut a girl’s genitals before Dr Christina Aus der Au would call it Female Genital Mutilation? )

    For people who violate human rights, there should be no tolerance, said Christina Aus der Au. But in the concrete encounter with Muslims, for example, there is not only black and white in this regard. If, for example, a Muslima came with her daughter to the women’s doctor to cut out her labia in fulfillment of a religious tradition, that is against human rights. But if the doctor refused to do so, they would probably go to a quack, which compromised the health of the young woman. For this reason, the physician could perform the intervention against his own conviction, and then, together with those affected, could do something against this religious practice.

    The president of the church council promised to remain in conversation forever. „Exclusion is the Ultima Ratio.“ It was necessary to engage in dialogue in the mutual listening, as well as to go out of the other something to be able to learn.

Mais dans la rencontre concrète avec les musulmans tout n’est pas noir ou blanc. Par exemple, si une femme musulmane dans ce pays vient avec sa fille chez le gynécologue pour exciser sa fille, pour exciser la totalité ou partie des labia majora ou labia minora [ablation des lèvres, MGF type II], […] Mais si le médecin refuse de le faire, ils peut-être vont à un « charlatan » qui met en danger la santé de la jeune femme. Par conséquent, le médecin peut effectuer le traitement chirurgical contre sa condamnation réelle, […] cette pratique religieuse […].

    Christina Aus der Au, Präsidentin des Deutschen Evangelischen Kirchentags 2017, fordert Toleranz gegenüber der weiblichen Genitalverstümmelung. Ein Plädoyer für Menschenrechtsverletzungen nach konkretem religiösem Bedarf.

    „Da mit § 226a StGB die weibliche Genitalverstümmelung in allen Formen bereits unter Strafe gestellt wurde, verstößt die menschenrechtswidrige Ansicht von Frau Kirchentagspräsidentin Christina Aus der Au auch gegen bereits geltendes Recht. Aus den Ansichten von Frau Kirchentagspräsidentin Christina Aus der Au ergibt sich zweifelsfrei die Berechtigung für den Zweifel über den Beitrag der Kirchen zur Sicherstellung der Menschenwürde. Toleranz heißt für Frau Kirchentagspräsidentin Christina Aus der Au offensichtlich die Toleranz für faktische Umsetzung von Menschenrechtsverletzungen.“

    Reliance of the Traveller

    ‚Umdat as-Salik wa ‚Uddat an-Nasik (Reliance of the Traveller and Tools of the Worshipper, also commonly known by its shorter title Reliance of the Traveller) is a classical manual of fiqh for the Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence. The author of the main text is 14th-century scholar Shihabuddin Abu al-‚Abbas Ahmad ibn an-Naqib al-Misri (AH 702-769 / AD 1302–1367). Al-Misri who based his work on the previous Shafi’i works of Imam Nawawi and Imam Abu Ishaq as-Shirazi. Ibn Naqib follows the order of Shirazi’s al-Muhadhdhab (The Rarefaction) and the conclusions of Nawawi’s Minhaj at-Talibin (The Seeker’s Road). This work consists of the soundest positions of the Shafi’i school.

    […] However what the Arabic actually says is:

    Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female)

    but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the clitoris
    (this is called HufaaD). {bold emphasis ours}

    […] Now before delving profound into the question of female circumcision, we would like to make it lucid that „female circumcision“ means removing the prepuce of the clitoris which is situated above the opening of the urethra, not the clitoris itself [Nein. Die Schönrede von Sufischeich Keller. Die autoritativen Texte geben Klitorisvorhaut nicht her, die Rede ist vom baZr (baẓr), der Klitoris]. The Sunna is not to remove all of it, but only a part [von dem baZr, baẓr].

    Umm Atiyya al-Ansariyya (…) narrates that a woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet said to her: Do not cut severely as that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband. [Sunan Abu Dawud]

    Circumcision is Sunna for men, and it is an honour for women, but it is not obligatory for them.

    On the misconception of circumcision of women, by Maulvi Muhammad Yusaf Al-Kanadee

    On Circumcision for Women
    According to the Hanafi Madhhab

    […] This is learned from a hadith reported by Abū Dāwūd from the woman Companions ʿĀṭiya al-Anṣārīya, who said,

    إن امرأة كانت تختن فقال لها النبي لا تنهكي فإن ذلك أحظى وأحب إلى البعل .
    A woman used to perform circumcisions so the Prophet k said to her, “Don’t cut too much [of the skin surrounding the clitoris but leave some of it–Mullā ʿAlī al-Qārī] because that will be more pleasing to the woman and more desirable to the husband.

    Mullā ʿAlī al-Qārī mentioned in his commentary on the hadith compilation Mishkāt al-Maṣābīḥ known as Mirqāt al-Maṣābīḥ that the hadith is weak by virtue of an unknown narrator that figures in its chain of narration however he said that al-Ṭabarānī reported it with a rigorously authentic chain of narration as did al-Ḥākim in his al-Mustadrak but with a slightly different wording, اخفضي ولا تنهكي فإنه أنضر للوجه وأحظى عند الزوج / “Circumcise but don’t cut too much for that will be brighter for the face and more pleasing to the husband.” Here follows the text from Mirqāt al-Maṣābīḥ […]

    Empfehlungen zum Umgang mit Patientinnen nach weiblicher Genitalverstümmelung (female genital mutilation)

    Bundesärztekammer

    Stand: 25.11.2005, ergänzt um Kapitel 10 durch Beschluss des Vorstandes der Bundesärztekammer am 18.01.2013

    Der Vorstand der Bundesärztekammer hat in seiner Sitzung am 25.11.2005 folgende Empfehlung beschlossen: Empfehlungen zum Umgang mit Patientinnen nach weiblicher Genitalverstümmelung (female genital mutilation)

    […]

    Entsprechend hat der 99. Deutsche Ärztetag 1996 in Köln folgende Entschließung zur rituellen Verstümmelung weiblicher Genitalien verabschiedet: „Der 99. Deutsche Ärztetag verurteilt die Beteiligung von Ärzten an der Durchführung jeglicher Form von Beschneidung weiblicher Genitalien und weist darauf hin, dass entsprechend der Generalpflichtenklausel der Berufsordnung für die deutschen Ärzte derartige Praktiken berufsrechtlich zu ahnden sind. In anderen europäischen Staaten (z. B. Norwegen, Dänemark, Frankreich) ist die rituelle Verstümmelung weiblicher Genitalien bereits gesetzlich unter Strafe gestellt.“

    Dies bekräftigte der 100. Deutsche Ärztetag 1997: „Gemäß der Generalpflichtenklausel der Berufsordnung für die deutschen Ärzte ist die Vornahme derartiger Praktiken berufsrechtswidrig. Durch die genitalen Verstümmelungen werden Mädchen und Frauen fundamentale Menschenrechte, wie das Recht auf Leben und Entwicklung sowie das Recht auf physische und psychische Integrität, verweigert.“

    […]

    8) Psychische und soziale Folgen

    Die Genitalverstümmelung hinterlässt meist ein schwerwiegendes unauslöschbares körperliches und seelisches Trauma. Der gesamte Vorgang kann sich tief in das Unterbewusstsein des Mädchens eingraben und die Ursache für Verhaltensstörungen darstellen. Eine weitere schwerwiegende Folge ist der Vertrauensverlust des Mädchens in seine Bezugspersonen. Langfristig können daher diese Frauen unter dem Gefühl des Unvollständigseins, unter Angst, Depressionen, chronischer Reizbarkeit, Frigidität und Partnerschaftskonflikten leiden. Viele durch die Genitalverstümmelung traumatisierte Frauen haben keine Möglichkeiten, ihre Gefühle und Ängste auszudrücken und leiden im Stillen.

    […]

    9) Prävention für die neugeborenen Töchter

    Entsprechend ihrem kulturellem Hintergrund haben die werdenden Mütter mitunter den Wunsch, eine Beschneidung auch bei ihren neugeborenen Töchtern zu veranlassen. Dies ist in jedem Fall zu vermeiden. […]

    Islamführer Tariq Ramadan stellt das intakte weibliche Geschlechtsorgan zur Diskussion

    Genau das war zu erwarten: der faktische Europaführer der Muslimbruderschaft fordert das musliminterne sowie elitäre (schariagelehrige) Debattieren über die Mädchenbeschneidung.

    Auch der rituelle Nadelstich oder der Einschnitt ist Genitalverstümmelung, FGM (hier FGM Typ IV) und weltweit strafbewehrt zu verbieten. Der Schweizer Islamradikale allerdings ruft nicht nach der Nadel, sondern redet über Skalpelle und Scheren.

    Die wie beiläufig aufgeworfene Entscheidung oder jedenfalls Abgrenzung „sowohl Beschneidung als auch Genitalverstümmelung – either excision or FGM“ kann es nur für jemanden geben, der die WHO-Klassifikation zur weiblichen Genitalverstümmelung (FGM d. i. FGM Typ I, II, III, IV) aufsprengen will in einen weiterhin verbotenen und einen anderen, dann straffrei gestellten Teil. Genau das will der Enkel von Hasan al-Banna.

    Wie Meinungsbildung – d. h. jenseitszentrierte Rechtsfindung! – im Islam funktioniert: per Qiyas, Analogieschluss, vor allem aber als Idschma, Übereinstimmung der großen Mehrheit der ranghöchsten Islamgelehrten.

    Zum Zwecke der Integration der islamischen Mädchenbeschneidung ist Abschottung anzuwenden, einmal die der Umma von den Nichtmuslimen, zum anderen haben sich die islamischen Eliten – Scheiche, Muftis – zur Beratung zurückzuziehen. In jedem Fall will Tariq Ramadan die Islamic FGM hinter verschlossenen Türen besprechen, die angeblich irgendwie ergebnisoffene Debatte verlaufe von nun an „intern – internal“.

    Das islamische Ergebnis steht seit mehr als tausend Jahren auch die Mädchen betreffend fest, es muss beschnitten werden oder es muss beschnitten werden dürfen. „Lassen Sie uns die Zeit für die offene innermuslimische Debatte – let us have an open internal debate“, so sagte es Tariq Ramadan ebenfalls am 12.06.2017, soll nur den Anschein von Demokratie erwecken.

    Um Mehrheitsbeschlüsse zum rituellen Verstümmeln jedoch kann es in einem freiheitlichen Rechtsstaat gar nicht gehen. Dieser hat vielmehr die optimale Gesundheit des – jedes! – Individuums zu verteidigen und dessen – erwachsene (über 18 Jahre alt; soweit zum Thema islamischen Kinderehen) sexuelle Selbstbestimmung und dessen ungeminderte sexuelle Potentiale.

    Wir haben das Verbot von JEDER Form der FGM zu erhalten bzw. durchzusetzen, überall auf der Welt.

    Das Geschlechtsorgan des unter 18 Jahre alten Mädchens bleibt absolut unversehrt, da wird, den Bereich der FGM vom Typ I oder Typ II betreffend, um diesen Bereich geht es Tariq Ramadan, weder herausgeschnitten bzw. abgeschnitten (Exzision), und da wird auch nicht, nun im Bereich von FGM Typ IV, die Vulva angeschnitten (ritual nick) oder eingestochen (ritual pinprick).

    Ja Herr Ramadan, Chitan al-inath, FGM ist auch sehr islamisch.

    Nein Herr Ramadan, die Mädchenbeschneidung bekommen Sie nicht.

    Die FGM bleibt verboten, da wird gar nicht erst diskutiert.

    WASHINGTON DC : Should shaykh Shaker el-Sayed be fired? Some thoughts around the controversy regarding female excision and female genital mutilation (FGM)…

    CLARIFICATION : I thought it was not needed as I repeated three times in the video that I do not support either excision or FGM. In any way and I have been involved around the world against both practises. I disagree as well with the comments made by Shaykh Shaker about hyper-sexuality. Yet, this was not my point and I made it clear in the video. To say this discussion has no ground within the Islamic tradition is wrong : it has been debated and still is. Even though I am against these practises as I think it is not the right Islamic interpretation, it cannot be denied that it was condoned by some Muslim scholars (even contemporary ones). So let us be clear about it and address the issue the way it should be, in a clear, wise and scholarly manner. My other point was about our reactive way to deal with issue when vicious islamophobic agencies, such as MEMRI, are attacking people and leaders within the Muslim community. This is the time where we should be wise and decide for ourselves how we have to deal with these issues and prioritise our struggles. Instead of exposing people, let us have an open internal debate even if it has to be heated, tough with no compromise. This is where I stand and I hope it is clear enough by now.

    […] the notion that “Islam would never support” FGM was contradicted Monday by an international Islamist leader. Tariq Ramadan posted a video on his Facebook page repeatedly describing the FGM debate as an “internal discussion” the mosque needs to have.

    He opposes the practice. But while female genital mutilation is not mentioned in the Quran, he said, “no one can deny the fact that in the mainstream Islamic tradition … it’s discussed because they are relying on the prophetic traditions, where it’s clearly mentioning the female excision.”

    In a written update added beneath the video, Ramadan emphasized his opposition to female genital mutilation, and repeated that it is rooted in Islamic tradition. “To say this discussion has no ground within the Islamic tradition is wrong: it has been debated and still is. Even though I am against these practises as I think it is not the right Islamic interpretation, it cannot be denied that it was condoned by some Muslim scholars (even contemporary ones),” he wrote. […]

    Ramadan’s comments refute that claim. His word carries significant influence. He is the grandson of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch describes Ramadan as “an independent power center” within the Brotherhood. […]

    It is a reaction indicative of a deeper mindset. In 2003, Ramadan drew criticism when he was unwilling to unequivocally condemn stoning adulterers. Like FGM, he said he was against the practice. But he couldn’t call for its ban. Instead, he called for “a moratorium so that there can be a real debate between Muslims.” […]

    Eine weitere Aussage von Tariq Ramadan, der zugibt, dass die Mädchenbeschneidung (wohl als FGM Typ I oder II), die er keinesfalls Verstümmelung genannt wissen möchte, durchaus auch sehr islamisch ist:

    Tariq Ramadan Defends Female Genital Mutilation: ‚Part of Our Tradition‘ and an ‚Internal Discussion‘ for Muslims Only

    by David M. Swindle • Islamist Watch Blog 14.06.2017 5:43 pm

    Last week Imam Shaker Elsayed of the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Virginia, was roundly condemned after a video emerged, courtesy of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), in which he recommends female genital mutilation to avoid „hypersexuality.“

    Elsayed has since tried to withdraw his comments and apologized, saying „I admit that I should have avoided it. I hereby take it back. And I do apologize to all those who are offended by it.“

    Elsayed’s weak-tea apology has not slowed the loud calls in the Muslim community for the Dar al-Hijrah mosque to fire him. But on Monday, influential Islamist thinker and activist Tariq Ramadan released a 10 minute video on Facebook expressing support for Elsayed staying on. Ramadan stated Muslim leaders who advocate for FGM should be understood as „brothers,“ part of „our community“ and Muslims who disagree should engage them with „internal discussion“ and are instructed „not to expose them.“ Here are some of the highlights from this video.

    .

    .

    First Ramadan starts by framing opposition to FGM as a critique coming from „outside the community“ and stating that he opposes the calls for firing Elsayed:

    „I’m reacting to what I heard and some questions that I had about what happened in Washington with this controversy round a shaykh who was not yet fired – I hope he is not going to be, but he was asked to stop preaching and to stop being active within the community or within the mosque in Washington. And I think that some of the brothers and the sisters even wrote a letter after the controversy around female genital mutilation and excision asking for him to be fired from the mosque and reacting to a video that was posted about what he said in the gathering with Muslim students, men and women. Let me say three things about this because I think this [sic] are critical times and we have to be quite serious about the way we are reacting to controversies and the way we are reacting to some critiques that are coming from outside the community and we have to ask ourselves what we are doing.“

    Next Ramadan makes his argument that because FGM is defended by some Muslim scholars it qualifies as „part of our tradition“ and is therefore worthy of being „promoted“:

    „My position as a Muslim scholar, my position: it’s wrong that we should not promote this because I think that first, it’s not in the Koran and second, it’s part of the Sunnah that we have, and it’s something that is done in African countries, among the Christians and the Muslims and it’s not religious. Having said that, I cannot deny the fact that some scholars at the highest levels of their institutional position are supporting the fact that this is possible that you can go for excision, not to go up to the mutilation and infibulation as it is known in African countries, but we have this in our tradition and it’s part of the internal discussion that we need to have. So to please people who are attacking Islam by saying ‚Oh no, no, no, this is not Islamic. It’s illegal,‘ it’s not even faithful to our tradition. We need to have an internal discussion… So, once again, we have to be serious. Any one of the six months of any basic Islamic training, no one can say it’s not part of our tradition. It’s controversial, it’s discussed… you need to take a position, but you then cannot deny the fact that this is something which is part of our tradition.“

    Then Ramadan shifts to attacking opponents of FGM, decrying them as Islamophobes, attacking MEMRI by name, and criticizing Muslims for wanting „to be perceived as moderate, open-minded“:

    „You need to ask yourself: who are these people who are using videos, putting them and creating controversy? If you are reacting only when Islamophobes – and the people, MEMRI, we know who they are, we know what they want to do, we know in which way they want to make Islam problems, not only in the United States of America but around the world through the translation, distorting and covering in ways that are very specific, they have a very specific objective, they have a very specific way of dealing with scholars, intellectuals, and Islam. These are Islamophobes, and you react to them by just exposing one of your leaders, a shaykh that has been serving the community for more than 30 years and you ask for him to be fired so quickly just to be on the safe side of the political discussion in the United States of America by saying ‚Oh, we have nothing to do with this‘ while your tradition is there and it’s discussed within your tradition and whoever is attacking you at least you have to be cautious with the people who are using this and are putting you in a situation which is yes, problematic, but you have to stand for your rights to have opinions, and at least to have internal discussion and not to react so quickly to these issues… And the last thing that I wanted to say: we disagree. I don’t agree with the statement. I don’t with one brother, I don’t agree with one leader. Can’t we take the time to have an internal discussion? To say ‚Look we are not going to respond to the controversy, we are not going to fire the people just to be on the safe side and to be perceived as moderate, as open-minded.'“

    Ramadan’s concluding comments are perhaps the most revealing [emphasis added]:

    At least we take the time and we let the people know these are internal issues, these are discussions that we want to have among ourselves and it’s not for you to decide when we have to fire somebody or even what are our priorities, because at the end of the day the context is now deciding for us, and people around us are deciding for us what are our priorities, what are the main principle of Islam, and we are not able to come with dignity, with consistency, with confidence and say, ‚Ok, this is who we are, we don’t have all the same opinions, there are discussions, there are internal discussions, we will take our decision, we will have our Shura, our deliberation with it, and it is for us to decide, not for Islamophobes, not for racists, not for people who have political agendas that are now deciding for us… The way you have to be dignified as a Muslim is to rely on him [points upward] to be consistent with yourself and to respect your brothers, not to expose them, not to expose your sisters, even though you disagree, even though you don’t agree. And no double standards, no selective indignation, or selective rejection of some of our brothers because they are exposed outside. And as to our internal business, we talk about it but we let the people, we let the brothers say whatever they want to say.

    This insistence on „no double standards“ is loaded with irony, as double standards are inherent in Ramadan’s worldview. He advocates for one moral standard for his Muslim „brothers“ and „sisters“ to engage in „internal discussion“ and for imams to „say whatever they want to say.“ But for non-Muslims who oppose the barbaric (and illegal) practice of FGM – that makes one a racist and „Islamophobe.“
