EGYPT: 97% of Women Undergo Genital Modification.


"A total 97% of the married Egyptian women  have mutilated genitals,  and the area where this practice is most frequent (99%) is in the governorship of Qena, in the south of the country. In Matrouh, on the Mediterranean coast towards Libya, the lowest percentage (25%) is registered, according to the study 'National Project Against Female Circumcision', held by the Minister of Health in cooperation with the United Nations DAG Programme." 

Now the Question at hand: How Can Millions and Millions of People Hold a Belief that Could Possibly be Wrong? And Can this same Question be directed toward Islam itself?
