Russian Christian Cleric Supports Female Circumcision for Muslims – But raises pertinent point – why the double standard about MGM and FGM from the WHO?

“Chaplin accused the U.N. of double standards by seeking to ban female genital mutilation but allowing male circumcision. The U.N. and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have campaigned for years to end the practise of any female genital cutting for non-medical reasons and have stressed that it is not comparable to male circumcision.”

In my view, the cutting of any child for religious rituals, medical fashion, or parental preference, is despicable.

FGM is directly comparable to MGM.
