Our dear Shaan who really does not know any Arabic is not aware that the Qur'an a book that he cannot read in Arabic because he ain't no Arab is silent about male and female genital mutilation and it seems that some Muslims believe that the male variety is borrowed from the Jews via what is called al-Isra'eeliat (and you should know by now that i do not translate Arabic for wannabe arabs like you) or the Jewish traditions that were palgiarized from the Bible by the author of the Qur'an

Now enter the Libyan judge Mustafa Kamal al-Mahdawi who in 1992 published a book that "questioned the legitimacy of the ritual" and this is based on "al-Mahdawi argues that as a Jewish custom originating in ancient superstitions of the Israelites circumcision deserved no stand in islam" so you see here is an Arab judge who knows Islam. You? you are and you must pardon me: ignorant

Oh what happened to the Judge? what else a fatwa of takfeer was issued against him by the Wahabi preacher in Muhammad's mosque in Medina. So much for free thinking in islam

I urge you to abandon islam and be whole again
