Photos of Muslim female genital mutilation

Click here to view photos of Muslim female genital mutilation, another barbaric act brought to you by “the religion of peace”. These photos were taken in April 2006 at an annual “ceremony”, sponsored by the Assalaam Foundation, an Islamic educational and social-services organization in Indonesia, where female circumcisions take place in a prayer center or an emptied-out elementary-school classroom where desks are pushed together and covered with sheets and a pillow to serve as makeshift beds.

According to the NY Times,

the annual mass circumcision is free and open to the public and held during the lunar month marking the birth of Mohammed. The Assalaam Foundation runs several schools and a mosque in Bandung, Indonesia’s third-largest city and the capital of West Java.

The photographer Stephanie Sinclair was taken to the circumcision event by a reproductive-health observer from Jakarta and allowed to spend several hours there. Over the course of that Sunday morning, more than 200 girls were circumcised, many of them appearing to be under the age of 5.

According to Lukman Hakim, the foundation’s chairman of social services, there are three “benefits” to circumcising girls.

“One, it will stabilize her libido,” he said through an interpreter. “Two, it will make a woman look more beautiful in the eyes of her husband. And three, it will balance her psychology.”


The NY Times calls this horrific practice “a ceremony”, a tactic to dilute the barbaric nature of Islam’s genital mutilation customs and its inherent misogyny. The NY Times has, as David Gutmann says,
“avoided that Mother of All Pathologies – the Arab male’s denigration of his women. A few critical references about honor killings and female genital mutilation and that’s about it. Perhaps because the Deep Thinkers can’t blame Islamic misogyny on Bush, they won’t touch it in any depth.”

  1. God or who ever you may believe is your creator does not make mistakes don’t you think that if God or your creator did not want our bodies to be like this then he would have created us differently you people our messing with Gods or your creators creation and there will be concequences for your actions I feel really sorry for you people who are committing this crime against our creator. I can only pray for you to be forgiven.

  2. Cruelty to humans is covered under Human Rights, and the UN should take a stronger stand and impose sanctions to countries who are not taking steps against this practice.

  3. This is a cultural thing, not relegious. Changing culture is easy. However, if it is done, why cant they do it in a hygienic manner with professional help, under legal cover. If not please dont do it. Your daughter’s body is covered under Human Rights, and the UN should take a stronger stand and impose sanctions to countries who are not taking steps against this practice.

  4. African tribals too practice FGM…and its sick…why would you do tat to a child? I have been researching on FGM and there were times when i was close to tears. Why does only a man get to have the pleasure of am orgasm? Why do we girls have to be used only as an object for giving birth to and rearing a child?? And whoever said that if female circumcision hurts, what about males, you absolute moron, your entire dick is not sliced off with a razor/knife/scissors without anasthaesia and then ur legs are NOT tied up from hip to ankle so that the wound fuses into a wall or mound of skin and flesh, amd a twig is NOT inserted so that it leaves space for you to urinate. And if u hav doubts, i want you to read up on FGM on wikipedia.

  5. I Just wished everybody thinks smoothstone! I completely agree with u smoothstone. Really dont know how this dirty female mutilation thing has originally emerged from muslims! Really degrading & because of this has encouraged people from other religion follow this.

  6. why would I want to do this to my child this is cruelty and madness to the highest degree.What religion would ask us to hurt someone else.I honestly think these people read and interpret the quran to suit themselves .why is it that these women cannot see that they are being disfigured for life and what selfish man would want to do such thing to his wife and daughter.

  7. Oh and excellent work Smoothstone, I love it when these sickos feel they should attempt defending themselves with silly comments and shallow answers to justify cruelty against humanity itself! In my religion, the woman is respected, for she is able to give you heirs, and raise the family with morality. Too bad muslim womena are meant to think they are inferior, to the extent they will even defend the atrocities committed against them by their fellow men, in the name of Allah whose name didn’t even exist on our big blue beautiful planet before the 5th cent. AD. Hate begets hate, I’m not compassionate enough to forgive you sick cock sucking camel fucking degenerates for your active work in “trying” to destroy freedom of thought, equal rights, and everything good about the different cultures that exist. You Jihad is failing time and time again. You will never break the human spirit. Never!

  8. Action speaks louder than words you cruel muslim people. You claim Islam is a religion of peace? Then all this proof on the web before your very eyes is all photoshopped propaganda you say? You all must think we are all idiots? You bet its our business to learn more and share what we have learnt about you lot. Because when you claim Islam stands for peace we can tell you lie. Peace for men and torture for women, yeah. A woman is nothing more than property to an islamic man, men bath once a week, every Fridays. We know stuff you are too embarrassed to share. Your reality of self denial sucks, you muslim freaks. We will not mind our own business, we are keen in knowing and studying the savagery of our common enemy, right across the world, so that we will give you exactly what you deserve, to be wiped off the face of this beautiful planey and allow you to join with your Allah and the 72 whore virgind you have been promised with rivers of wine. No words are harsh enough to express my utter disgust and amazement at what Islam is made of and what its doing to fellow humans under its entrappment.

  9. What I find really sad about all of this is that any mother who has had this done would willingly subject their daughter to it. And the statement that “NO Muslims encourage female genital mutilation” is of the utmost ignorance. The photos displayed here as well as elsewhere on the web would suggest otherwise. I don’t see any other religions carrying out such depraved acts of violence to their children.

  10. I don’t think it matters how much anyone hates anyone else.
    Everyone, including people of Islam, should be trying to stop this from happening to the next poor girl.. what if it were your daughter? Or you married a woman who had had that done? Or your Mother?

    It is just terribly sad, and we should all be sad over it together, not against each other.

  11. I’ll say it. Islam is evil and should be pushed back into the cave it crawled out of. Then we should seal the entrance.

  12. it is not good to say this is belong to which religion because in the islam we cant see this. in islam we learn humanity and peace those people that do this kind of shit the are not muslim the are not human and allso islam is religion of humanity we can say that muslim please stop this kind of shit

  13. Furthermore, on the subject of Israel, G-d gave the land to Abraham and had him walk the territory. It will be all of the countries surrounding Israel that will be Israel’s, just as Genesis stated. Islam has a cruel awakening to come in the not too distant future. I am a Christian who loves Israel and the Jews.
    Allah is a demon moon god, not the God of Abraham.

  14. The main reason we are even having this discussion about the Islamic insanity of Female Genital Mutilation is that Abraham stuck it into the Egyptian slut Hagar and thus we have the bastard Ishmael. Abraham did not choose to bless Ishmael as his firstborn, thus the struggle. Islam was invented in the 500s and it has always been a bastardized version of some sick perversion.

    And, I agree with Smoothstone that we have a right to discuss this because the camel jockeys are intent upon conversion. They are so stupid

  15. No matter what religion, no matter what country, That “procedure” is WRONG, anyone who has condoned its use, or performed it should be bludgenod and jailed. Little girls are the single most important and cherished beings on this earth. what a horror!!!!!!

  16. Samstone, though you sound a little harsh at some places; please take my salutations for the extraordinary knowledge of the mythological and historical facts. You have given a be-fitting reply to some of the hardcore and fanatic muslim contemporaries who have visited and tried to advocate that their religion is perfect and without belmish. Right from the lifestyle of their prophet and some verses on women and sex contained in the Koran, it does not appear to me that it is articulated by GOD Supreme. Well any body and specially the muslims, if they understand the contents of koran fully and also go through the most inhuman and barbaric blunders that they have committed on the innocent civilians then they would not only feel ashamed to call themselves what they are but royally disintegrate from the religion itself. Once again my sincere regards to you.

  17. Hey dumbass, “Kamal” and “Ur mother fucker” your IP addresses are the same, you fucking muslim fraud. Go fuck yourself, you lowlife scumbag douche.

  18. Who the hell are you, “Kamal”, you mother fucker, to tell people – like Jews – where to live, where to die, what their borders should be, where their religious places should be, and what we’re allowed to say – who the fuck do you think YOU are, you fucking rat’s ass?

    Jews are entitled to self-determination, to live freely in their homeland. Zionism is just as valid as Palestinianism, although Palestinianism is more like Kleptocracy than anything else. The Zionist movement to “Palestine/the Land of Israel” represents a RETURN – not an invasion, because you see, “Kamal”, unlike the political “Arabian nation”, the Zionist movement represents a RETURN – not an invasion.

    More importantly, of the 30+ conflicts around the world, most of them involve Islam.

    We are told that there is a difference between extremist Islam and peaceloving normal Islam. Judging by Islamic behavior, Muslims are anti-West, anti-Democracy, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Buddhist, and anti-Hindu.

    Muslims are involved in 25 of some 30 conflicts going on in the world: in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Cyprus, East Timor, India, Indonesia (2 provinces), Kashmir, Kazakastan, Kosovo, Kurdistan, Macedonia, the Middle East, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Sudan, Russia-Chechnya, Tajikistan, Thailand, Uganda and Uzbekistan.

    To the intelligent part of the civilized world, this means that extremist Islam is the norm and normal Islam is extremely rare.

    So, “Kamal”, take your Muslim hubris and shove it up your stretched out asshole and stick it up far where the sun don’t shine, motherfucker.

  19. Those people who talk without knowing any thing …please insert huge bamboo in ur ass so that u can only speak aaah..oooh..

  20. Who the hell are u people to tell what is in islam and what is not?mind ur own business….if u r tellin dat female circumcision is painful then what bout male circumcision..

  21. katy, when you grow up and learn how the world has traditionally treated Jews, their traditions, their holy sites and their holy books, then you will have earned the right to bitch on this site about “unfair biases”. Until then, I suggest you don your burkah and join greta berlin and other code pink wackos and do what you do best: spend your adult life defending murderers and savages, while re-writing history, something you are prone to do every time you leave your vomit here in the comments section.

    And by the way, the reference to “Swedish” terrorists evidently went over your little pinhead. Try googling what that reference is. And nowhere did I say “Swedish” was a religion. You interpreted it that way because you’re an ignorant buffoon, and too stupid to argue with in the first place.

  22. the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation occurs in non Muslim societies as well as Muslim societies, it is quite plainly a vile and evil practice. however, I think it is impossible to get a balanced opinion on any sort of website that is ignorant enough to think being Swedish is a religion, as opposed to a nationality, and that there are no Christian terrorist groups. ever heard of the ira? this article is quite blatantly biased against Muslims as a whole, and not the individuals committing these acts. it also seems keen to display other religions as faultless, this is untrue.

  23. It sure as hell is my business because pukes like you, with your rhetorical seepage as it were, want to lay claim that islam has some kind of historic or cultural or other connection to the United States, and the world must know that there is nothing about the United States, not its politics, not its legal system, not its literature or language or cultural influences, not its music, not its art, not its sense of humor, not a single solitary thing that would make anyone in his right mind call this country “also a Muslim nation.” So, as long as neanderthals like you infringe on OUR culture, it will be every REAL American’s business to put barbarians like you back outside the gate where you belong.

  24. i was circumcised when i was 6 but why do you have to make a big deal out of our culture, it is none of your business

  25. Jewish men who do circumcision are 8 days old, and the act of circumcision is a Jewish covenant between man and G-d Almighty. The act of male circumcision does not mutilate nor does it disintegrate the ability for the man to orgasm.

    Female circumcision on the other hand has NOTHING to do with a covenant between man and G-d and it DOES mutilate the clitoris of the woman so that she is rendered absolutely unable to orgasm.

    Clearly, the act of female circumcision is not equal to male circumcision.

    And clearly, we don’t all worship the same God.

  26. Where the hell did u got such blasphemous info about ISlam?
    Please send us the link of NY times where you allege having found the info below.

  27. NAZ, evidently English is your second language. No one here is ridiculing Islam.

    But then again, it has been centuries of cries of “victimization” from Muslims that we in the west have grown accustomed to.

    If crimes against humanity that I read in the head lines everyday all occur under the name of a religion then you should self-reflect.

    There are no Jewish, Swedish, Buddhist, Mormon, Christian terrorist groups blowing up civilians anywhere.

    If you are a Muslim, stand up and say what Muslims are doing is wrong, and do it publicly.

    You’re still young, you can escape the madness, NAZ.

  28. Slmz,
    Female genital mutilation is NOT commanded by the Quran and this tradition is completely banned by Islam. God would never allow a human being to suffer in that manner. I dont understand why these traditions still exist and why those people think that this is acceptable. It makes me so angry and i wish that non-muslims will not be ignorant and that they will stop continuing to ridicule Islam.
