Skeikh Qaradawi supports FGM


The facts are this: Qaradawi, who has been described as the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, issued a fatwa (hosted on the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islam Online website) arguing that “circumcision [in this case cutting the labia minora, not the clitoris – what the World Health Organisation (WHO) refers to as Type IIa FGM] is better for a woman’s health and it enhances her conjugal relation with her husband” and that, while it is “not obligatory”, “whoever finds it serving the interest of his daughters should do it, and I personally support this under the current circumstances in the modern world”.
