Interesting claims as the issue of FGM is in itself controversial within Islam, with amny clerics arguing that FGM is haram (not allowed in Islam).

#AceWorldNews – IRAQ (Mosul) – July 28 – Thanks to a fellow blogger called American Liberal Times certain doubts are growing about the authenticity of an edict attributed to the Sunni Islamist group Isis controlling the Iraqi city of Mosul about female genital mutilation (FGM) and a post provided by #AceWorldNews may appear to be incorrect, so here is an updated story from BBC News
A top UN official quoted from a statement saying that Isis wanted all females aged between 11 and 46 in the northern city to undergo the procedure.
Jacqueline Badcock said the decree was of grave concern.
But media analysts say the decree seen on social media may be a fake.
It has typos and language mistakes and is signed by “The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant”, a name the group no longer uses, instead referring to itself as the Islamic State.
