Nothing to do with Islam, as always:
Â “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 theÂ bazrÂ ‘clitoris’ [this is calledÂ khufaadh‘female circumcision’]).” â€”Â ‘Umdat al-SalikÂ e4.3, translated by Mark Durie,Â The Third Choice, p. 64
The “fatwa” issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls, U.N. resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq Jacqueline Badcock told reporters in Geneva by videolink from Arbil. “This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed,” she said. “This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists,” she added. No one was immediately available for comment from Islamic State which has led an offensive through northern and western Iraq.
