A DISGUSTING PRACTICE THAT HAS TO BE CONDEMNED BY ANY HUMANE PERSON. THIS IS BARBARIC AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ISLAM...
The reported death of a 12 year old Egyptian girl at the hands of a doctor performing that revolting practice of female circumcision has apparently sparked a public outcry there, and so it should, and has prompted health and religious authorities to ban the practice. It is, after all, a cultural practice that has nothing to do with Islam.
The poor little girl who was named Badour Shaker, died last month while undergoing the procedure in an illegal clinic in the southern town of Maghagh. Her mother, Zeniab Abdel Ghani, said she paid about 50 Egyptian pounds($NZ11.85) to a female physician to perform the disgusting procedure.
The mother also said the doctor tried to bribe her to withdraw a lawsuit accusing the physician of murdering her daughter, in return for 15,000 ponds, but she refused.
A forensic inquiry into the case indicated the girl’s death was caused by an anaethesia overdose.
