CAIR: International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation

CAIR logoIn recognition of the International Day of Zero Tolerance for Female Genital Mutilation (Feb. 6), the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, reaffirms its longstanding position that:  

“American Muslims join people of conscience of all faiths in condemning female genital mutilation (FGM), forced marriages, 'honor killings,' and any other form of domestic violence or gender inequality as violations of Islamic beliefs. If anyone mistreats women, they should not look to Islam to justify their abhorrent, un-Islamic actions.”
