Nottingham, England: A 29-year-old woman from Nottingham has called for a ban on circumcision after a doctor performed the operation on her son without her knowledge. She said her child was so much in distress that he could have died during the unwanted procedure.

She is now seeking a legal action as to how the doctor performed the surgery without her consent. She told The Times: “For Female Genital Mutilation they can stop people taking daughters out of this country but they won’t protect boys.” Adding that there should be someone to prevent doing this to little boys.

The woman said her son was so much in pain that he was not able to wear a nappy. The woman who got pregnant due to an affair with a Muslim man did not mention his name on the birth certificate, as she has the sole custody of the son. She also allowed the child’s father and his family to visit him, and claimed that it was during the visit when boy’s grandmother took the child for circumcision and get done the operation to give him a Muslim identity.

The proposal to prohibit circumcision has been put forward by Progressive Party MP Silja Dogg Gunnarsdottir and is backed by several other Icelandic politicians, Daily Mail quoted the report.
