I do not want to brag but see how the get out there approach is showing results and the debate it creates. I now have a opposition MP and people in Government supporting the cause.

And my comment publicised.
I have publicised other actions which are in progress so watch this space. That is my personal ijtihad.I am a Muslim born in an Indian Bohra sect that encourages these acts by influencing women and mothers around the community obligations of keeping alive this draconian practise.
I had written to Pru sometime back about the practises and it is good that I read today she has taken a stand against it and acknowledged my message.
The worry remains that this is such a private issue that it will be difficult to police since the community members take young girls overseas when they are as young as 5-9 yrs to get the cut done. The difficulty becomes when the girls get older, very rarely you would expect them to report their parents to authorities and hence the rituals flourish unnoticed.
However the government can start publicising the issues and the ramifications so over a long time the practise gets extinct as the kids get older and have their own daughters who they can avoid this. I in my case convinced my wife to ignore the practise by educating her on the medical aspects and fortunately my daughter was spared the cut.

For the abdes like Rania, aqs and some vacillating so called orthos like anajmi, I am not distracted by your commentary..my mission is on. And foolishly the Kotahr underestimates my resolve , reach and am yet to get an contact through my linked email email@example.com to review and resolve our issues internally all I get is abuse as if words will push me back.
Will you please stop obsessing over me ? I know health care is Government Sponsored in Oz , but why give the doctors another patient to worry about ?
Now to talk on your own ' blowing the trumpet ' comments , please provide evidence that you indeed did write to Pru ( Weird Name ) and then she got educated when you brought it to her notice ! Any Jack or Jill may take credit for this. How are we suppose to believe you ?
If anything , you probably come off as a retard by looking at your posts on this forum ! ( Strictly no offense to retards and I mean that most sincerely )
And already having seen your cowardly antics when you were begging others to take me down ( Yes sweetie , my memory is superb ) why should we believe that it was you who brought it to Pru's attention ?
