This article make me so sad.
This practice has nothing to do with Islamic tradition, it is just cultural issue (I'm coming from partly Islamic country).
I can't explain to myself lack of love, emotions and warmth. And above all I'm in shock seeing so vivid lack of empathy in families and society there.
That behavior is considered as inhuman in my culture (even among Muslim population) which has often relating to over-protection of children...
Now as I'm writing it came to me that lack of empathy is one of main characteristic of Psychopaths.
I can imagine that mental institutions would have huge amount of work for some time there...
So sad...

One agrees, and knows many Muslims would be absolutely horrified by this practice. It seems a horrific subculture, some men and what seems the communities involved, have rationalized as "normal."

Certainly would generationally produce a vicious circle, and deeply angry and troubled youth and men who victimize others in a variety of ways.
