WHY THIS MADNESS MUST STOP #SuperBloggers by @blinkingam

Why This Madness Must Stop

 

 

 

 

 

 
The girl is 17 years old but looks much younger. Her face has the fine elegance typical of Nigerian natives, but her accent belongs to the streets of Nigerian villages. She is plainly terrified. That much is clear from the way she avoids eye contact.

 

“Promise you won’t print anything related to me.” She implores. “If people of my community find out, they will say I have betrayed them and I will be executed.”

 

With great courage, this rural nurtured girl – called “TATA” – is about to describe a barbaric act of cruelty which has been perpetrated against her. Knowing the danger to which she is exposing herself, her anxiety is understandable. It’s known by a variety of names, most common of which are Female Genital Mutilation, Female Circumcision, or simply “cutting” – a word which conveys the raw pain its victims suffer.

 

It involves cutting and sometimes sewing up some parts of the female genitalia, leaving a small opening for urination and menstruation. It’s carried out on tables or floors, without anaesthetic, using filthy, blunt knives, razor blades or scalpel. Some people argued that the practice is to increase the sexual pleasure of the man, but this is an outdated reason why many women are treated this way. Others claimed it’s to avoid promiscuity and demonstrate virginity.

 

Tata is so determined that other girls should be spared the misery she has endured since she was cut that, recently, she told her story. She was three years old when her family opted for a greener village. Everything changed for Tata when she was 12 years old. One morning her mother told her, quite casually, that they were to visit a friend. “I thought I was going to visit her friend.” Tata says quietly, avoiding eye contact.

 

Soon after she arrived at the friend’s house, everything changed. Tata’s mother had secretly joined together with several women to pay for a “cutter” to circumcise their daughters. “They believed it had to be done for us to get husbands.” Tata shrugs. What happened next was like a scene from an action movie. Her mother and other women suddenly grabbed and grappled her to the floor. Then the strange woman came in with her bag of implements. “They held me down, and when she began cutting, I screamed, so my friend’s sister put her hand tightly over my mouth,” she says. I had known her and these other women all my life, but now they were doing this, even my mother” she concluded while shedding tears.
Female Genital Mutilation often results to life threatening complications such as septicaemia, hemorrhage or cyst, but in this case, Tata was fortunate. She quickly recovered and returned to school. However, the legacy of the atrocity inflicted on her when she was 12 years old will always remain. If she is lucky enough to avoid prenatal complications frequently caused by genital mutilation and have children, she will almost certainly have to undergo a caesarean section.

 

Whatever the argument is, the fact is that genital mutilation is real and its negatives far outweighs its positives. The best way to address this menace is through strict health policy where children will be closely scrutinized during infancy, and any abnormal behavior or prolonged absence from school immediately investigated and if confirmed, parents be handed to the police. In this age of political correctness, no doubt, factions will argue that such intervention activities are discriminatory and breach of human rights. But the idea that things are too private to be acted upon is what is keeping them shrouded in silence. This madness must be expunged.

    I think the best tin 2 do is to enlight ppl 2 stop there negaative acts and do the positive 1s.

    I feel the pain Tata n Co are going through… There is need for awareness. The government and Non-governmental organisation should work together and see to it thiS madness is stopped and ensured that defaulters are brought to book.

  • abula

    Its so unfortunate that at dis age of civilization and medical advancements, such things and a vast majority of oda negative sociocultural practices are rampant in our immidiate society, Let dia b continues campaign and enlightment amongst oda measures which I believe will go a long way to help reduce this preventable menace of our time amongst odas.

  • Ahmed

    Very incisive and precise. Actually the more we try to bring such sociocultural issues to the front burner of national discourse the better for the society.

  • mogauri

    First of all you deserve a thumbs up for such couragious piece. Looking at this sociocultural act,you wonder if we are advancing or moving backward. At this 21st century,people should understand the right of every child,but most importantly,the complications of our actions. Wish those in such act will read thus,learn from it and stop the act. Tnx sir.

  • nafisa

    As a women I feel the pains most women go through cos of such act. Its time the relevant authority do something on it.

  • black

    This is touching n insultive to any civilized society. Surely it must stop before many other women got killed physically or psychologically. God bless you for this info.

  • davo

    I was opportuned to hv witness such act n must admit its so painful n uncalled for. Let’s just hp the ppl in charge will do something. Good stuff bro.

  • Bashar jafaru

    This is real barbaric and nefarious act. I’ve heard about women genital mutilation for a long time but all i beleived was some kind of mythical stories. unfortunately, this rapacious act exist hitherto. I also wore the idea that this must be stopped. government and relevant advocacy group should put more effort to eradicating this socio-cultural menace by any means necessary.

  • zacks

    Over two yrs bk someone told me about this useless stuff,but then didn’t take it too serious. But reading this naration mks my heart bleed and really believed it. I wish it will be kicked against by all cultures. Good story brother.

  • Al amin

    So this kind things still they hsappen for our country.may we see its end soon.

  • M. Lawal

    Some I read that its meant to improve sexual pleasure to the make folks…bt is this true? Hw can it do that. Anyway,its so bad especially seeing its effects on the health of the women.

  • ibrahim kareem

    How unethical these people can be? This is immorality of the highest order n our traditional institutions are doing little or nothing to bring an end to this. Its high time this act must stop or women may be forced to revolt.

  • abubakar amshell

    Through out my life I hv never heard of anything like this not until now. I wish I can see it practically but from the piece I felt the pains women go through coz of the act and pray it will soon be opposed by the leaders. May almighty reward u.

  • Ahmed d don

    This is serious. I thought only men got circumcised? Never got this idea before until now. Hmmmm may God help us n our cultural evils.

  • Hajara

    I was a victim of this evil act but promised never to happen to anyone again in our family after hv grown up.am urging everyone that knows where this act is being done to report them to any civil society group for proper action.

  • boss lady.

    I can’t imagine myself subjected to such. This is share wickedness and lack of human respect. Why on earth people keeping silent on important issues that need urgent attention. This is a gender sensitive issue and should hv been resolved since by the govt. Hope it will soon be countered. Tnx bro.

  • USSY

    This is so ridiculous for me to understand. Circumcision for women? This sound absurd if you ask me. What’s the rationale and human benefit for it scientifically? I guess none….surely this must stop as the tittle captured. Very incisive piece ABUBAKAR.

  • kadi

    Oh my my……what are they cutting and why? Nawa o for this people sef. I thank God for my life on this. Can’t even imagine me being circumcised.

  • Dr Moh

    I think the best to stop this is exactly as outlined by the writer. In addition,we as parents and parents to be should not even of that way as well as discouraging those doing it by enlightening them of its consquences.

  • ifeanyi

    Please people should be remembering that life is too short to wicked other people. This is bad and should stop please.

  • faruk ibrahim

    I feel its a tradition or cultural norm that is very difficult to part with by those so called community leaders that Misled our forefathers and mothers. Thank God the act is getting controlled gradually and we won’t stop until its wheels out of our cultures.

  • chidi

    Left for the communities found to be practicing this stuff should be restructured entirely through orientations and awareness campaigns. Is bad n unhealthy.

  • bitrus

    One thing I have to add here is that the act is even done in an unhealthy manner by non professionals. Why won’t complications sets in? We need to save the future of our dear ones plz. Enough is enough.

  • Josephine Amodu

    My God. In this era? tot we hv pass that level interms of sociocultural practices. Anyway,we will fight it to death. More grease to ur elbow.

  • nana badmos

    We on this part of the world are so predisposed to such issues. Africans hv certain cultural believes that are not healthy and yet refused to be stopped. The earlier we do so the better for us.

  • segun

    The world is fast advancing but we keep sticking to issues that are irrelevant and unhealthy. Only God will save us.

  • Arume

    My heart bleeds,my body itches and my sympathy to women. Let’s keep on enlightening people while also remaining steadfast in prayers.

  • babalakin

    But let’s be liberal on issues like such. Don’t we think there is the root in our ancestry and cultural theology or myth for this practice? Or we think there is nothing good about it? My opinion though.

  • zubema

    This is intriguing if u ask me. But the act is long overdue to be stopped. Let’s join forces and fight it please.

  • kola

    My heart felt sympathy to the women folks. Just got this via a friend n its worth reading to say the least.may the almighty strengthen your efforts.

  • jide

    Eyya poor and innocent lives are lost cos of such acts and government is doing nothing to arrest it. We need to fight it ourselves,may then the government may also join us.

  • faruq

    Am speechless on this. What’s the benefit? Just for cultural sake? Can’t continue this rubbish.

  • murtala

    Fellow Nigerians,let’s all join hands and heads to cut the wing of this menace. If its not you today,tomorrow can be you directly or indirectly. Please and please.

  • Tope

    I’m a women so I know hw painful this can be. Beside,the aftermath effect of it is so worrying that any serious society should address it. Unfortunately our societies are always lopsided when it comes to such issues. My prayer is that the relevant authority should be more proactive and direct in approaching the issue. Nice piece.

  • asaju

    I happened to traveled to other African countries and will sadly tell you that its a general continental problem. Some of those countries do not even care about the repercussions. They feel its a must do thing for every child irrespective of status or class. We global reorientation on this as soon as possible. Welldone.

  • jibrin

    Keeping date with certain issues atimes will only promotes your anger especially in NIGERIA. But that’s not to say one will fold his/her hand and watch others suffer. Something must be done to avert the dangers of this practice by getting rid of it in no distant time. Good work sir.

  • nuhu

    @Babalakin,I don’t think there is anything beneficial from this act. Am a Muslim and my religion discourage it. I also know that Christianity do not support it. What benefit then can one gain from practices that are not supported by religion. We should just call spade a spade. It must be stopped.

  • baba

    There is no better time to fight this than now. The more we are allowing it into our traditional settings,the more its been accommodated in our everyday lives. Let’s act fast.

  • @clarinet1803

    It’s truly a malady that needs be addressed.

  • Ndiyang

    Well am a women,experienced it as a teeneger. But can’t say its bad or good. The reason is this,we all knw that our traditions had taught us significant issues of life. Its known that this practice emanated from our traditions. So it may hv some moral content within it. And even the writter said its said ” to avoid promiscuity and demonstrate virgity”. For me I feel we should not completely condemn it but seek for a better way of doing it. Good write up though.

  • Aliyu Jos

    @babalakin,I totally disagree with you. What is the rational for the act? What are the bases upon its establishment? Who recommended it? What positives have we ever seen of it? These are enough reasons why I think its not a good practice and should be stopped.

  • I. B. Haruna

    Babalakin there are no reason whatsoever to subject you child to such humiliation. That child can die instantly cos of that act. Let’s all join hands and fight it plz. Good piece.

  • isah mansur bello

    Ndiyang,am surprised someone can stil encourage this act,worst of it,someone that suffered same humiliation. Let’s not deceive ourselves plz. Yes,traditions had brought many important issues to our progress as humans. Sociocultural practices hv many negative effects and this is one of such. Its high time we shone away from it n move ahead.

  • Efe

    Ndiyang I doubt if you had experienced this barbaric act. For you as a woman to say it should be modified,haba. Its not good in all ramifications. Plz think again and join hands to fight it away from our society.

  • abdallah adamu

    Babalakin and Ndiyang, though you both hv different ideas on the issue,bt seems to me you all are promoting this practice which is so sad. In this era of global ICT n technological advancement one wonders why literate people will think in the direction of supporting this act. May we need more light to be convinced. But certainly not me coz this is an endemic that most be stopped.

  • Likita

    Why would someone say this is a good stuff or sort? Msy be they haven’t been oriented enough on its effects. Good article bro.

  • Aisha hassan

    People should learn to be ccontent with the blessings of their creator instead of abusing it. There is no need for all this. Give your child a proper n sound moral and you hv avoided promiscuity. We will challenges this act anywhere.

  • femi opoola

    Ndiyang as a woman I never expect you to say such. We all know its not healthy and bad. We must not support will come to hunt us later. Please and please.

  • alasan

    Babalakin we shouldn’t be compromising efforts to clean up the society of bad practices. For Ndiyang,am short of words but plz rethink times over on you stand. Thnx all.

  • Israel Ike

    As far as am concerned this is rubbish n should stop. Period.

  • Barde

    As said in the write up,some ppl will argue on this issue bt never thought of a woman less alone one that suffered the pains of the act.

  • John edachie

    I think our should be our yardstick for judgment here. As responsible adults,there are things you know are not right n can never be. So whoever think its good let him OT her go ahead with it. But prosperity will judge all of us.

  • Yusuf Abbas

    Different follks with different opinions. But fact is fact. This thing is bad and should be addressed. Good piece.

  • kareem solanke

    How shallow some people can think. What’s good in this act that someone is saying it should be encouraged? Remember that God is watching you.

  • kareem solanke

    Ndiyang,I thought d pains u went through won’t even allow to think of anything positive about this practice if really there is any. But now you mean you can subject your children to the same act? Hmmmm. Babalakin,there is nothing good on this act that we should promote. Everything about it is evil.

  • eng. m.s liman

    sometimes the sufferings encountered by individuals mks them become conditioned on certain issues.I think that is what happened with Ndiyang case. If not,there are no justifications whatsoever for anyone to encourage this act. it must be stopped with immediate effect.

  • usman yerima

    I feel lyk sheddding tears after going through this piece. Imagine yourself been subjected same thing. I bet you had better comit suicide right. So plz let’s all say no to this practice and many young women from the pains of the stuff.

  • Timbuwak shamaki

    Should I say desperation of cultural necessity? Are people moving in accordance with advancement at all? This are the underlying questions we need to answer first before even judging ourselves.

  • Dr Ambi

    Life is short to cheat others coz this is cheating. Let’s go back to holy books please and spare innocent children the pains of this malady. For the lady that said she is encouraging this act,am urging her to please reverse her comment for the healthy lives of our young ones. Keep the fire burning.

  • fatima abdul

    As woman that I’m,there is no way this act could be supported by conscience beings. However,most atimes traditions do over power personal wills of the people. Bt generally this whole thing is not sensible and should be discouraged tremendously. God bless the writer and the responders.

  • Zee abdullshi

    How bullish some people can be.must they mutilate us? Is it a religious affair thing? Abeg let’s fight them till its abolished completely.

  • Hamman

    Ignorance they say can make someone do anything. I think that is just the simple explanation to this. Let’s all attack it by creating awareness and sensitization campaigns.

  • musa ibrahim

    Ndiyang,am astonished by your support to the practice. Yes may hv some important cultural practices bt certainly not this. We should just wake up and fixed our societies.

  • auwal borosk

    Mine is just prayers for those still practicing,may God let them understand the implications and Stop. Ameen.

  • architect bala

    So long as we breath,there are some certain cultural things that cannot be stopped instantly but gradually. This is because once we try doing so,our parents and grand grand parents will always argue that’s our they went through and survived. Bt gradually we will get rid of them.

  • uche j.

    I hv seen this act more than ten times,and each time it happens I cannot help bt feel for the girls. Later on I got to know of its implications and today got more on it.I hv took it as challenge upon myself. In anytime I went home must surely enlighten those ppl in the village. May God reward you abundantly.

  • yaks abodin

    My people this thing is not only NIGERIA o. Its a global issue just that its more pronounced in some countries coz of their rich cultural heritage like Nigeria. But I believe soon it will be an extinct practice.

  • micah simeon

    How the world is moving but lots of issues left unattended to. This is one of them. The more we inform others on its consquences,the earlier we can get it quenched within the society.

  • abdallah radical

    Sometimes back while watching a documentary saw hw this thing is done. I was shocked and only for me hear again many of its effects. Hp its stooped sonnest.

  • bisallah tibiyat

    This life is just a shame to some. As a woman supporting genital mutilation? How can you Xplain that to your children? This thing is barbaric and we should stop making it look light.

  • Adam usman

    Ndiyang let me ask you a simple question please. Has the act really stop promiscuity? Does it improve the number of virgins we have. None of the above. In some instances it even only encourages those immoral behaviors. What then are we saying? Plz change your mind and fight the act.

  • barkeji

    One thing that is certain is the fact that our traditional institutions are like the law makers in many of our societies. And we can’t claim to know better than them in everything. The practice may have its negatives,but it also got it positives. May be we need to go deep within our cultural origins to know more. But its good as some of the negatives are said here for one to know and counter them.

  • Sadee baby

    Anyone saying this act is healthy doesn’t understand the health implications. Why on earth will one encourage a taboo. This is a taboo and must be stopped.

  • jide abbas

    All this argument shouldn’t be centered to the practice alone. Many factors like environment,literacy level,religious orientation should all be considered. However,the simple truth is that its not good and the community leaders themselves should be educated and their support seeked.

  • timo jembi

    This argument shouldn’t have spanned this far. The logical thing to do is compare the issue of tribal marks with this. Everyone is now against marks because it leaves physical signs everyone doesn’t want right. This is even more fatal and dangerous. Just think deeply.

  • Pharmacist Dangana

    I learned some people are supporting this deadly and nefarious stuff. Can’t imagine that though. Nice work abubakar.

  • dikko umar

    This act must stop except if its another population control system. Keep the nice work a.m

  • David

    Oh my country and people. Collective effort is the only way to get this mash dusted out of our societies. I believe we can do it. God bless us all.

  • Adeola Monsuru

    A friend said continental wahala but I said global wahala. We need to be exposing such issues that are detrimental to human liberty and freedom. More of this bro.

  • faith D.

    I hv been fortunate to visit many villages in many different regions across the country and will emphatically tell u that this menace is still much ongoing. Sometimes if you even try to let them understand they will tag u a deviant. Strong campaigns must surely be put in place to convince those resistance built people. Thumbs up bro.

  • adewale

    Rationallty of people must change to be able to stand any chance of getting rid of the act. Am out.

  • adewale

    Social effects are some of the world most stigmatization factors. It need to stop before people are start being made to feel compromised as humans especially women.

  • faruk

    Great work bro. More knowledge to figure out many Of such things.

  • victor

    May be it should be done like HIV was done too. Exposing and promoting the dangers it harbors so that people will take it serious and stop.

  • Salis

    The end of this is surely insight. Prayers and informations are the key. On the right track.

  • Salis

    Am so worried about how this whole thing is happening and those at the top are either always busy or not willing to act.

  • B. Aliyu

    Keep on enlightening those at the helm of affairs untill a law is proposed to stop this wickedness.

  • storm bee

    This is more like trying to kill a child. So painful and can be potentially life threatening. Its time to rise and stand against it.

  • Kemi

    I hv always been an antagonist of this practice. Sometimes we do pretend or shy away from the truth when actually we know it. We should all support in enduring its kicked.

  • Patrick S.B

    I wish the government will listen and act. But knowing fully the kind of government we hv,I hv no hope on them until proven wrong. Good bless you.

  • usman senior

    Traditions hv always been a serious threat to the socio wellbeing of the people. Not only this,many cultural practices are against religious believes,hence the need to put a full stop to them including this. Good topic and well narrated.

  • festus

    I thought we no longer hv this within our societies again. This need serious prayers with massive campaigns.

  • idris

    Blessed is he who wrote this piece. We need to be learning from the mistakes of our earlier ancestors.

  • osai

    Well well well. Those saying there are some positives from this act deserve better enlightenment on more severe complications. May be that will give you all some things to think about.

  • blessing momoh

    We are humans with feelings. Why should someone just say this thing should be encouraged? No it must be eradicated among our communities.

  • kabiru alabi

    This is a humiliation rendered to an innocent life. We should be ready to play a greater role as agents of change. Good stuff and Weldon.

  • umar kankia

    I urge all well meaning Nigerians to please be more committed to reforming our cultural values starting with this. I’m a prime supporter of cultural practices that are healthy and obliged,but this one is never part of them and should be truncated as soon as possible.

  • Tammy

    Good way to remind people of their negative past and look for a way to correct it. Nice one.

  • abba

    Wow. This is ridiculous and amazing. Let’s join forces kawai.

    Let us learn to live it some practices untill when we stand fight our rights and liberty.

    May God enable us to stand against the act. Ameen.

  • Halliru

    This is a tragedy. It can directly or indirectly affect anyone. Say no to it.

  • Halliru

    Am shocked but not surprised. I know our people can do it or even worst. Good piece.

  • MK Yusuf

    Great piece and not surprised by it. I know our people can even do worst.

  • Ibro

    Clear summation of moral abuse rather than uphelding standard.

  • abba anka

    Why would some people say this shit is tradition? Anyway,may be certain traditions adopted it. Good article.

  • ify

    Good stuff my bro and more power to do many of this.

  • Otodo

    Terrible act,despondent practice and shallow thought. Say no to it.

  • Shuaibu

    How innocent lives are derailed. God will be your power little ones.nice work sir.

  • yakubu

    Plain truth in this piece. It must be stopped.

  • dogara

    Its time to wisen up and act accordingly. Enough of this crap.

  • alhaji musty

    What a sad day for me. Fuel subsidy stuff and now this taboo. Wake up plz Nigerians.

  • Vera

    I hv been waiting for such time to read on this issue. Its quite long that I hv been trying to see someone brought this issue up for deliberation. Someone people are saying it should be encouraged while majority are against it. Well,for me its an issue of justification. If those supporting it feel justified,let them go on. Those that feel it should be abandoned should do their ultimate best to stop it.

  • ayo biodun

    OMG! Am just imagining the pains the little women usually feel when undergoing the act. Chai,no let’s stop this thing plz. Is wickedness.

  • Samson

    I remembered when my sister was subjected to this useless stuff in the village. But thank God with awareness and preaching everything stopped. I wish it stop all over. Good one a.m

  • ishaq blueprint

    Believing not to see any of this act again,only to be proved wrong by this piece. The little girl is nothing but just a victim of traditional miss appropriateness. Soon it will be over I believe.

  • aliyu aminu

    Dramatic incidents do happen atimes but how we respond to them is the key. Let’s use our voices and forces to end this mischievous practice plz.

  • eng tj

    There is an NGO on women rights violation in Abuja and lagos,let’s please get them informed on this one as well as assist them in carrying out the process. Thanks.

  • Abdulqadir muhd

    Amazing, this is barbaric. There should an awareness to them by their traditional rulers.

  • igwe

    My sincere advice to those supporting this act is to plz deceased from such and join in fighting it. Let no one be responsible for promoting what may come back and hunt them. Think plz my friends.

  • grace yakubu

    In every human affair there is positive and negative issues to it. But what matters most is which is the larger. In this case,there are lots lots of complications which can endanger the lives of those subjected to the practice. Hence the nerd to end it without delay.

  • Esther Abraham

    Frankly speaking am short of words. Just hope it will end in no far time to spare many children the pains and other negatives attached. Good one abubakar.

  • ezikiel

    Grest piece Oga a.m,nice info and good message across. Keep it up.

  • Jane

    Eyyah my sister,God is with you and your likes. The practice will soon end.

  • Ahmed

    Tradition or not tradition this whole thing must stop. There is no bases for argument here.

  • shedrack

    Sometimes its good to be resolute as a person inorder to stand against certain cultural ideologies. Be it that way,we also need to fight our urge for wicked act.

  • icecube

    To day the least,this should hv no room whatsoever within our societal component. How it was adopted from the onset is still a misery for me to comprehend.

  • brain

    Nice work. I gbadu your style my man.

  • Kate

    May God continue to shower you with lots of knowledge and strength to do more of this.

  • major

    Plain truth is that we must fight this act not only with our mouth,but desired will n actions.

  • sodangi

    Great piece my brother. Keep on the work.

  • sodangi

    Am in support of scrapping this act through whichever means possible. I hail you sir for the art.

  • fatee

    Women always at the center of issues. We don’t need to be circumcised for whatsoever reason. Our nature as women is enough for anything.

  • Moses

    Great article my Oga. Weldone and more of it.

  • musty

    Comprehensive details sir. Documentary ought to be done to enlightened people more on this thing.

  • shade blitz

    The trend has continued to change. At least in my region (Midwestern Nigeria) the campaign against female genital mutilation has really helped the women folks. My sisters were circumcised at tender ages (few months) however I am not aware of any of my sibblings that have subjected his/her daughter to this same cruelty. I think the campaign has been successful. However it needs to be refueled and given wider coverage!
