SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – The Grand Ayatollah Safi Golpaygani answered SHAFAQNA’s question about girl’s circumcision.
SHAFAQNA: In some parts of the world girl’s circumcisions are carried out, is this accepted by the religion? As some doctors believe this act will damage girls physically and emotionally as well as being dangerous, what is the religion’s view? Can a girl be forced to circumcision?
