Mariya Taher; She was like any Indian girl born in the US. Her childhood was spent in games, chocolates and laughter. But she is a Bohra; a community that believes in cutting girl’s clitoris. In Urdu, this body part is called ‘Haraam ki boti’ which means that private part is a sin. Taher’s clitoris was also cut in her childhood. She was ashamed and after some years decided to start an organization for the Bohra women. But this is not at all easy; especially in the age of social media where anybody can abuse and threaten you.
