It's unfortunate that Muslim men care so much about 'VAGINA'S' when they deny Muslim women many of their rights & view her as beneath men!

T. Ramadan play with words - but he will not deliver answers. Many did, Al-Azhar graduates, they dared century ago, on topics TR find taboo

My issue with "internal debate" is that it's usually men telling women to shut up: the Shut Up Sister & Let Me Liberate You Brigade

It's unfortunate to see some religious leaders justifying or female genital mutilation in the name of religion or other lame excuses

Safety of our girls is much more important than one man telling people not to criticize another man who promotes cutting of girls genitals.

We must make those men - those who condone FGM & those who defend them - anachronistic and irrelevant. Our priority must be girls

Anyone who in 2017 says anything short of "FGM is torture of girls & must end everywhere" is complicit in perpetuating the crime that FGM is

When imam in US says cutting girls genitals prevents "hypersexuality" & Muslim "leader" in Europe defends him it's a disgrace

Exactly. Tariq Ramadan et al obsess more about what white people think of us, not the well-being of our girls.

Much respect to Muslim women & men of Dar al-Hijrah congregation who told Tariq Ramadan their priority was their daughters

We have have to move beyond men like Tariq Ramadan. Their priority is not equality of girls & women/our well-being. Their priority is power
