FEMALE circumcision (khitan) is practised widely among Muslims based on the assertion of its obligatory status by many clerics/jurists in certain jurisdictions.

Malaysia is no exception. Malaysia has implemented it due mainly to the national fatwa (religious edict) issued by the National Fatwa Council on April 21-23, 2009. The council decided that female circumcision is obligatory except in cases where it becomes harmful to the subject.
