10.3.2016. It is not the first time that we hear about FGM in Dagestan. But so far, we only had hints from Russian media. Now, the Guardian reports about a magazine in Dagestan which makes FGM a topic.
“The magazine also draws attention to the practice of female genital mutilation (FGM).
“I was recently sent a link to a paper which said that FGM is Sunna [traditional Muslim law based on Muhammad’s words or acts]. I took exception to that and did some research and found that it is not true.”
Anokhina said that some of her correspondents had also refused to write about FGM, so she had started to investigate it herself.”
