It is a sad fact that many countries especially in Africa and in the Middle East, the women or girls under 9 years of age and under are subjected to mutilation of their sex organ in what they call as circumcision, a deep-seated religious or cultural tradition. Gosh, I am glad to be borne in an Asian country where this tradition of circumcision of women is non-existent among females. When I attended the UN convention last year in May at the New York City, this was one of the issues discussed therein. Now, I am glad that the African states themselves are pushing for UN to ban this practice as it is violative of human rights. I hope other countries in the Middle East will push for this measure, too so that the women's rights will be protected.
