SC questions rationale of genital mutilation practice

The Supreme Court on Tuesday made it clear that it cannot direct doctors to perform genital mutilation of minor girls of the Dawoodi Bohra Muslim community and questioned the “scientific justification”, if any, behind the procedure.
A Bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, which was hearing a PIL plea challenging the practice, questioned the process saying there was hardly any rationale behind it as a girl child is forced to undergo it due to non-medical reasons.
