But you forgot to tell us that the Qur'an is also silent about the male variety of genital mutilation

Reader comment on item: Salman Rushdie and British Backbone
in response to reader comment: To Susan: Female genitalia mutilation (FGC) is not explicitly endorsed in the Qur'an

The Qur'an is also silent about male genital mutilation that does not stop muslims from sexually mutilating their little boys. Well the Qur'an is also silent about FMG so why should this stop Muslims from subjecting their women to FMG more so when Abul Qasim declares in the bogus Hadith that FMG is makrouma?
