(Horror Itardalmroh Sudanese circumcision)

More than 90% of Sudanese women have been subjected to genital mutilation, which leads to the loss of a woman for a large part of their sexual and exposes her to death during childbirth

Important can not hold back the tears as she recounted the story of her sister homage of the six years that bled to death under the knife of a traditional midwife was Takhtnha even though it happened long ago in 1980.

And young girls in the Sudan the poor, are subjected to circumcision, usually defined by human rights organizations amputations or sexual mutilation.

On December 26 last Inaam Abdul Wahab died in the age of four as a result of acute inflammation. When the doctor insisted on an autopsy found that inflammation was the result of being subject to genital mutilation.

Has become the face and homage unto a symbol of the campaign against female circumcision, led mostly by women who process itself.

The inspiration that she was nine years old when her sister died, "It was a collective circumcision of the three younger sisters, one after the other there were many women, five or six limbs and head, with dignity, which was lying on the table."

Homage and bled to death.

They noted the important that the sisters were being subjected to the process of Pharaonic circumcision which is the severest of three types of circumcision.

According to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), according to statistics in 2004 showed that 82% of the women of Sudan's estimated population of about 40 million people have been subjected to pharaonic circumcision, while the percentage of women circumcised Overall 90 percent.

The term "circumcision of the Year" to refer to the amputation of the clitoris, conferring on the cover of a legitimate religious process, but statistics indicate that Christians in Sudan practice the Sunnah more than the Muslims.

UNICEF says that the prevalence of circumcision year is 46% among Christians compared with 26 percent of Muslims who choose 83% of them have undergone the harshest.

But women's rights activists in the fight against circumcision aspire to prevent it in all its forms.

Nahed says Jibrallah, member of the Sudanese Network for the Eradication of female genital mutilation, which was founded in 2002, "We are against the practice as a whole. All kinds cause of death for women."

We said from the top countries in terms of number of deaths during childbirth, which amounts to 509 deaths in every 100,000 births, "pointing to circumcised women face problems during birth, sometimes lead to death.

Insists activists against female circumcision that women lose a large part of their sexual life because usually practiced in 28 African countries.

And suggests that infibulation including covered almost entirely of sewing the vaginal opening to cause excruciating pain for women during sex and childbirth.

But it seems that most men underestimate the complaint Sudanese women from the harm caused by circumcision, arguing that in addition to protect the girl from slipping in the vice by curbing her nationality, it increases sexual pleasure.

Activist Thuraya Ibrahim (34 years) says that "a large part of the Sudanese men believed to be circumcised, and narrowing the aperture lead to enhance sexual pleasure."

The striking thing is that the Sudanese mothers usually they insist on subjecting their daughters to genital mutilation "because they have grown in male-dominated culture," according to activist Soraya which indicated specifically to women's ignorance of the dangers of circumcision.

We can not ignore the psychological impact of FGM on women who do not leave her no matter how old or gave birth to children. This is what appears when Troy Mxtonat women suffering from this old habit.

The woman asked not to be named said: "I was about five years (of age). I felt terrible and I fear Mmsukp by two or three women."

She said the lady who came to circumcise the average "Daya (traditional midwife) this is still present and almost 80 years old. I feel that I do not want to see it when Tsadviny."

For its part, said another woman in the forties it can not be forgiven for failing to protect her mother from being circumcised when she was ten years old.

The woman said that she underwent a circumcision year, "Lamy is that since it did not Tkhaddni the Pharaonic progress and openness are not enough."

The Sudanese law has fallen following the lead of the first. After infibulation as a crime punishable by law in 1946 and despite the lack of application, prohibition law was amended in 1974 to include all types of circumcision, except the Sunnah.

But an amendment to the Criminal Code in 1983 dropped the whole subject of female circumcision, has also been ignored in the last amendment in 1991 during the arrival of the Islamists to power.

In May (May 2005) issued a fatwa on the Islamic Fiqh Academy of the Presidency of the Republic said that the circumcision of the Year "flyers and posters, and if it is paid to do," said journalist Zuhair al-Sarraj.

He os anti-female circumcision that this opinion has been reprinted in publications and posters have been distributed recently in public places in the black
