First of all I am 24 years old boy from Mogadishu Somalia as we are aware of female genital cuting is bad practice or bad procedure by some muslim countries really some communities beleive as a religion obligation and this is totally wrong because the prophet Mohamed ordered Sunna circumcision it is quoted from prophet mohamed by Umu Atiyah ( reduce but don,t destroy) means don,t destroy the clitoris but reduce it, and it is all muslims to know that reason of doing female genital cutting is to reduce their sexual appetite and Haram or forbiden in Islam .
