Love knows no boundaries and has no limitation. I feel this as deeply as you do. Does being a Dawoodi Bohra changes this beautiful feeling for me? Read more:

As per our culture, it is to be performed at age of seven. We know it is harmless. We are not afraid of anything. We just follow our cultural practice. We too love our daughters and would never take any step that could potentially harm them.

“There is no place for any kind of mutilation in our religion or culture. We strongly oppose any act or practice that oppresses, demeans, or subjugates our women.” – features the views of DBWRF.

The views of a minority of women cannot be represented as the views of the entire Dawoodi Bohra Community. We seek a fair chance to defend our harmless cultural practice, FC, that people are misled to believe as FGM.

The alleged study fails to establish their key argument that women suffered psychologically, physically, or biologically, due to the practice. Is this not enough to prove that FC is a harmless, religious and cultural practice?

The alleged study titled, 'The Clitoral Hood – A Contested Site', drew conclusions from 94 cases when we are a community of over a million Dawoodi Bohras. The study presents a non-balanced view; the approach is reactionary and not fact-based.

We talk about progress for women in India, and raise our voices to abolish oppression. If a group of people try to stop me from practicing my religion in my own country then isn't that called being oppressed?

but what you calling choice is that taken by you without any social compulsion ? Dawoodi bohra Muslim women must be involved in any research and deliberations on or . They can also speak . Why urban armchair feminists speaking on their behalf ?

This study doesn't include us - the dawoodi bohra women. We are in thousands while this study only represents 90. It's clearly a one sided study. How could a learned man like you support an unfair study like this? This has deeply hurt us.
