clitorectomy..mutilation is not a part of islam. I have lived near the Afghan border here in Pakistan and I assure you that most muslims dont do clitorectomy. Instead they have birth control problems, too many kids. Like honestly, this is so ridiculous I never heard of anyone is Pakistan doing it. Only someone in Africa. I hate Pakistan with a passionate hatred cuz it is all corrupt and cultural but honestly this is ridiculous even for me. sorry. Muslims do the Jewish thing of cutting the some layer of skin of men's weewees but no such thing to women. And no such thing as asking for husband's permission.

The problem with muslim men nowadays is that they let their wives work and drive and all but they snatch away their money and oppress them. Both of which arent in Islam, the Quran says nothing about "treat thine wife like ... or you wont go to heaven" nor does it say "make women incapable of reproduction by mutilation". In fact, most mullahs here are all like men need to have more children. It is kinda stupid cuz they dont have the money to feed and educate them. there are a lot of other stupid rituals here like "wani arrangement" and also, marrying a perfectly normal adult woman to the Quran. marrying a woman to a book? does that even make sense??? This ... isnt Islam. honestly. if it was i am educated so i would have left islam a long time back since i have been living here for ages. In fact when you have no money all you have is faith which drives you to live and work day in and day out.
