Somaliland politicians condemn FGM


The government of the de-facto independent state of Somaliland takes a decisive stance against FGM:

FGM is not only abhorrent but it is a denial of rights, declared the Minister of Religion and Endowments. He said it is not an Islamic practice.

The Deputy Health Minister addressed the social dimension of FGM when she stated that women can only take their proper place in the country’s society once the destructive practice of FGM is completely eradicated.
