Militant group Islamic State has ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation, the United Nations said on Thursday. The "fatwa" issued by the Sunni Muslim fighters would potentially affect 4 million women and girls

I suppose the argument could be made that anything to do with IS is religious.

to prevent "immoral" behaviour
Meanwhile the rest of the world is trying to encourage women to immoral behavior.

Maybe war is the only answer after all.

This smells more like Western propaganda. FGM is typically an African tribal tradition, not one that's common in Iraq. It's not prescribed by the Quran. Importing it would only alienate them -- it makes no sense to do so.

Yes, and some news media are questioning the UN 'statement'.

Quote:
The United Nations, expressing deep concern, said on Thursday that militant group Islamic State had ordered all girls and women in and around Iraq's northern city of Mosul to undergo female genital mutilation. But doubts emerged on social media about the basis for the report. One document posted on Twitter suggested it may be a year old and have been issued by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant, the group's previous name.
Other Internet comments, including from Middle East analysts, questioned whether the order fit with the cultural traditions of the region.
A U.N. spokesman in Geneva said that they were seeking clarity and trying to establish the facts.

While a young guy I tried to do my share of encouraging it. I think I was far from alone in that regard.

Truth be told, they didn't actually REQUIRE encouragement
