Twitter backlash as tweet promoting FGM is seen 30,000 times

From Metro H/T D and M

Twitter has been slammed after a tweet promoting female genital mutilation (FGM) on children was viewed more than 30,000 times. A Muslim group calling itself Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom posted a tweet last week justifying ‘khafz’ – or female circumcision – on young girls. The tweet featured a video of group member Arwa Sohangpurwala saying: ‘My daughters have also undergone khafz, and they’re growing up as perfectly as other children of their age. . . "

Twitter users immediately slammed the controversial ad. 

Twitter has since removed the promoted post but taken no action on the original tweet.

The Dawoodi Bohra Women for Religious Freedom group – a branch of the Shi’ite Muslim community – promotes female circumcision and claims it has been ‘wrongly classified as female genital mutilation’. It also claims the procedure involves ‘removal of a speck of superficial skin, a simple gentle process in which there is negligible, if any, pain’. However, the World Health Organization classifies the smallest form of skin removal as type 1 FGM. Unicef estimates more than 200 million women have undergone FGM procedures worldwide.

I think this outfit got into trouble in the US last year. I don't know if they are linked with this group in Sri Lanka also trying to promote FGM by pretending it is 'circumcision'. The hate preacher Haitham al Haddad also tries to justify the wickedness in the same way. He told me that to my face in Stratford Broadway east London one night.
