Haraam ki Boti, the title is inspired from the metaphorical understanding of the impious pinch of skin of a female’s clitoris which is sliced out at an early age of a girl child. This is a traditional practice in various communities across the world, which is widely understood as Female Genital Mutilation/Cutting (FGM(C). The paper is set in the context of the the practice of FGM to understand it deeper from the lenses of tradition and unveiling the layers of customary grip upon the practice. Identifying this, the aim of the paper is to collate some interventions which have been done to tackle FGM in communities, as a ray of hope.
