ISIS leader demands female genital mutilation of 2 million girls

BY ROBERT MYLES      IN WORLD
Mosul - A Jihadist leader associated with the militant Islamist group ISIS — the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham — has ordered that all women aged from 11 to 46 years in Iraq undergo female genital mutilation (FGM), according to a UN spokeswoman.

 
 
The United Nations second-in-command in Iraq, Jacqueline Badcock, speaking from the Kurdish provincial capital of Irbil, told reporters during a videoconference organized in Geneva that Islamists in control of the Iraqi city of Mosul had issued a fatwa or edict asking all families around Iraq’s northern city of Mosul to circumcise daughters within the specified ages or face severe punishment.

 

Ms Badcock, the UN’s resident and humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, said“The practice,” said Ms. Badcock, “is something very new for Iraq… and does need to be addressed.”

 

“This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists,” she added.

 

According to International Business Times, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the self-declared Islamic State, ordered the female genital mutilation of 2 million Iraqi girls seeking to justify the fatwa as being in order to “distance them from debauchery and immorality.”

 

Al-Baghdadi is believed to have been born in Samarra, Iraq in 1971. According to his Wikipedia entry, he’s been named the Caliph — head of state and theocratic absolute monarch — of the self-proclaimed Islamic State located in western Iraq and north-eastern Syria. Reports suggest that Al-Baghdadi was an imam at around the time of the US-led 2003 invasion of Iraq.

 

Ahmed Obaydi, a spokesman of Mosul Police, told Kurdistan-basedBasNews,“Baghdadi’s decision to have all women circumcised is, as he claims, to prevent immorality and promote Islamic attitudes among Muslims. The decision was made by Baghdadi as a ‘gift’ for people in Mosul.”

 

But civil activist Asil Jamal, quoted by the same news outlet, was more forthright, commenting,“When ISIS was first arriving in Mosul, people were warmly welcoming them, but as a result of ISIS’ horrendous wishes, especially forced female circumcision, it is becoming clear for people that these ISIS militants don’t know anything else except torture.”

 

FGM or the ritual cutting of girls’ and women’s’ genitalia is widely practised across large swathes of Africa, the Middle East and Asia. The practice has come in for strong criticism, not just from the United Nations, but also human rights and women’s rights groups.

 

In 2012, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution calling on all states to ban the practice but despite widespread condemnation, women in a number of countries have continued to suffer this barbaric practice.

 

Earlier this week, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) released new data which, said UNICEF, confirmed the need for urgent action to end female genital mutilation and child marriage — two practices that affect millions of girls across the globe, said UNICEF.

 

UNICEF’s figures for those who’ve suffered the humiliation of FGM are staggering. The organization estimates that more than 130 million girls and women have experienced some form of FGM in the 29 African and Middle Eastern countries where the harmful practice is most common.

 

The UNICEF campaign to end FGM can be followed on social media under the hashtag #endFGM.

      Where is the source for this outrageous pile of codswallop designed to rabble rouse people into acts of violence?

      Why have you posted it in the spirituality section?.. try the warmongers section. :wink:

      • Abeeftec

        The Source is in the article brains.

        130 million girls/women living today have been mutilated, thus. Where’s you outcry against that? Trying to defend the indefensible is a sign of a racist agenda.

      Wow, you actually had me going there for a minute, at least its not an article about Israeli child napping & organ harvesting. Worse, it could have been about Israeli genocide that would actually be believable because its true. Considering that ISIS is just recycled Al-CIA-duh that is created, trained, armed & funded by the Israeli Mossad, CIA & Saudi Arabia as our new boogie man to throw our 2 minute hate at & justify invading every nation on the planet, There is no such thing as ISIS (maybe you just didn’t get the memo). I am sure most people are getting pretty damn tired of this government sponsored & fabricated Muslim demonization, false flag & hate speech crap so knock it off already… :!: :!:

      ISIS has a lot of catching up to do if they want to compete with the cock chopper perverts from Israel.

      if ISIS is so bad then why is it that Russia can take them down in just a few weeks and the USA is pissed that they are doing so or could it just be that ISIS is black opps by the CIA, a US boggy man thats financed by Israel so it can grab the land in Syria.

      Strange but the stronger Isreal becomes, the more wars we seem to be getting

        The problem is the entire world knows this and still nothing! :cry:

    • djfxw

      If true, then the ISIS members can have those women unable to procreate. That way, they can have sex with their favorite partners. Goats and other men.
