    I think it grossly violates baby's human right, it is tradition all right, but did not Hinduism too have many superstition it is unnecessary science proved this.

    So what do you think about this?
    @pmaitra I accidentally entered 2 "with" in the first option, can you replace later "with" by "it"?

    Doesn't matter either way to me.

    However, I do believe it should be banned till the boy is an adult to decide for himself, and it be done in a medical facility by doctors.

    Once saw a vid of it being done by a maulavi by a thorn!!! That was a horrible vid and I gave a verbal bashing to my friend who had offered to show me a 'funny' vid!

    If we are following for the sake of tradition then yes it should be banned , however this procedure has many health benefits as @Ray sir mentioned, so i don't mind approving it. Remember there are lot more pros of it than cons.

    People saying that circumcision has health benefits must post proper source proving it.

    The paper/article that @Ray sir has posted says the following (underlined text is mine):

    The articles goes on to say:

    The article further adds:

    In conclusion, there is no real proof that circumcision has any health benefits, it is just a MYTH (The Myths and Facts of Circumcision | Intact America).
    and performing such BS on infants is a human rights violation and constitutes child abuse.
    Mostly, only Americans and Jews and Muslims snip the tip of their children, simply because their parents and grandparents did it to their children.

    The claims in the article provided by @Ray were true and proven scientifically.
    E.Coli- the most common bacteria responsible for UTI colonizes in Glans and Prepuce of Penis and same is true for HIV viruses.
    Circumcision if done in infancy can give life long protection against Penile Cancer.

    I know you re doctor, but you got to post some references.

    Anyway, what is your opinion of these (referenced) articles below:

    While Harrison is one of the authoritative medical books on Internal Medicine, the British follow IIRC Davidson's Principles and Practice of Medicine.

    Maybe @VIP can unravel this for the layman.

    My brother had to undergo circumcision at a young age due to medical reasons. There might be many cases of this sort. Therefore, I don't think a blanket ban is the way to go.

    But I do feel that circumcision needs to be carried out only in a hospital, by surgeons, and not in some religious place by a layman with crude "tools" like stones or thorns.

    One great Man&his Book portrayed clearly what is what

    The title refers to a legend of the Prophet Mohammad, when a few verses were supposedly spoken by him as part of the Qur'an, and then withdrawn on the grounds that the devil had sent them to deceive Mohammad into thinking they came from God. author claimed that verses of the Qur'an were "the work of the Devil".

    Phimosis is very common. And circumcision is the surgical procedure of choice and the definitive treatment. In fact if a person is having problem during inter course because of non stretchable skin around glans penis should undergo through circumcision.

    Heck people, Medical circumcision is a treatment in many cases and banning every procedure is stupidity. Circumcision done by means other than medical should be banned if you actually care so mauch.
