Lucy Mashua in an interesting Interview with the Frontpage Magazine:
My experience with Islam on FGM is very sad. As you correctly point out, a majority of people who practice FGM on women are of the Islamic faith and in the Muslim countries that I have visited their women and children have encountered the worst form of it, and many reconstructive surgeons can testify to this. It is a form of control and manipulation in the name of religion.
The good news is that there many Muslims who are rising to end any form of torture against women.
