Jihadists in Iraq have ordered that all women between the ages of 11 and 46 undergo female genital mutilation, a UN official said Thursday.

"It is a fatwa (or religious edict) of ISIS, we learnt this this morning," said Jacqueline Badcock, the number two UN official in Iraq.

She was referring to the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) which took over large swathes of the country last month.

It was a Fake news
IS never give out this fatwa. UN after some hours said they maybe believed a fake. IS rejected to give out this fatwa! Its propaganda and a lie like a lot other things related to true Din of Islam. In sunni islam this things ist haram because its a danger to woman body. Only Men have to be circumcised! Its interessting to see all your hate of islam. Your false god General Sisi will bring you to highway of desaster. The clock is running, the next arabic Spring will be a real Revolution and islamic ! Fi AmaniAllah.

Savages have hijacked our religion
Thank you Egyptian people for demanding an end to Ikhwani rule. Thank you Elsisi for obeying the Egyptian people. Egypt and the whole Middle East is under attack from these savage terrorists. These terrorists who are attacking Islam . Extremism is a cancer that needs to be eradicated. These savages don't understand the first thing about Islam . Elsisi needs to do everything in his power to support Islamic institutions in educating and condemning loudly this attack on our religion. Al azhar needs to be much louder and much clearer in condemning and exposing these frauds. These terrorist are enemies of Islam and Allah and all civilized people everywhere.

Ever wonder why they cover their faces?
Even they are embarrassed of what they stand for. Not even in the stone ages female genital mutilation was considered acceptable subhuman behavior.
