The mufti made an exception for orthodox women as they "don't fornicate anyway"
This is a refreshingly honest statement by the leading Muslim cleric as he makes it clear that the excision of a woman's nerve bundle will make her more controllable as opposed to the usual canard of FGM being a "cultural practice and nothing to do with Islam".
Senior Muslim cleric and Islamic spiritual leader of the North Caucuses Ismail Berdiyev has declared in an interview that if female genital mutilation (FGM) could be forced upon all women that would be "very good".
Berdiyev made the controversial comments to Russia's official Interfax news agency as he responded to a human right's report which urged for an end to the practice in the North Caucuses. If FGM "could be applied to all women, that would be very good", he was quoted as saying.
