FEMALE CIRCUMCISION IN INDONESIA: THE WEIGHT OF TRADITION

In Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, female circumcision remains a firmly rooted tradition. Starting very young, little girls must undergo genital mutilation. In some Indonesian provinces, the vast majority of young girls are circumcised.

Today, many ulema members fervently argue in favor of the necessity of female circumcision. Their influence is strong, and they are forcing the government to back down on its plans to ban female genital cutting.

We followed Arista, a three year-old little girl who must go through the procedure according to her family’s wishes. Her mother drives her to Bandung in Southeast Jakarta where a circumcision ceremony is orchestrated by an Islamic group.

Who is responsible for perpetuating this religious tradition? Why is the Indonesian government allowing medical staff to continue to perform female circumcision? And who will help the country break free of this ancestral tradition?
