Fifty-year-old Rahma Wako is an activist working to eradicate FGM, 16 years after Kenya banned the practice.
Ranalvi said she hoped the survey - which has revealed that three quarters of women among the Dawoodi Bohra sect have undergone female genital mutilation - will increase pressure on the government to ban the practice. A drag on the well-being of communities and economies.
This includes pricking, piercing, incising, scraping and cauterisation of the female genitalia.
With strict rules in place in countries like U.S. and Australia, Bohra women are coming to India for the procedure, revealed a report. Almost a quarter of females who have been cut live in Egypt.
"It also requires policy and legal reforms that support gender equality, the empowerment of women and girls, and respect for their human rights". No religion condones FGM and most faith leaders have condemned it. Women from affected communities who oppose FGM may be shunned, ostracised or abused by their communities. It is an especially high price when their primary reason for FGM is combatted from another end as well: child marriage.
"This is the good news", they continued. Yet population trends in some of the world's poorest countries where female genital mutilation persists threaten to roll back our progress. The centre had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court that there was no official data or study by the National Crime Records Bureau which supported the existence of Female Genital Mutilation in India. It is estimated that the same number of girls are at risk of undergoing this practice by 2030.
"The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development promises an end to this practice (Female Genital Mutilation or FGM) by 2030".
It seems therefore, that the practice is a bit null and void, especially since many who have undergone FGM are married off before they are even educated about sex and their own organs.
"Nobody - not the girls, their families or communities - benefits economically or socially in unequal societies where such violence against girls is accepted", argued the UNICEF and UNFPA chiefs.
"We know how to change this". Where social norms are confronted, village by village. Kenya, however, has seen a backlash as a doctor pushes for continuing the practice as part of "heritage" in a court bid. Where girls and women are protected and empowered to make their voices heard. All UN bodies and Special Representatives of the UN Secretary-General, all regional organisations in particular the African Union and civil society are our partners in the shared efforts towards a safer world for women and girls, which will lead to more resilient, peaceful and inclusive societies. The writers of the report demanded an anti-FGM/C legislation primarily targeting providers of Khafd, warning that India runs the risk of becoming a hub for FGM/C of expat and foreign Bohra girls. And because it can, it must.
