Verdens største muslimske land, Indonesien, får 96 % af pigerne skåret stykker af tissekonen før de er fyldt 14 år. Omskæringerne betales af islamiske organisationer og foretages i moskeer:

“96 percent of families surveyed reported that their daughters had undergone “some form of circumcision” by the time they reached 14

When a girl is taken — usually by her mother — to a free circumcision event held each spring in Bandung, Indonesia, she is handed over to a small group of women who, swiftly and yet with apparent affection, cut off a small piece of her genitals. Sponsored by the Assalaam Foundation, an Islamic educational and social-services organization, circumcisions take place in a prayer center or an emptied-out elementary-school classroom where desks are pushed together and covered with sheets and a pillow to serve as makeshift beds.”
