The article isn't blaming the religion, or saying the practice is a part of Muslim doctrine, merely stating the fact that, in the countries in Africa mentioned, those that practice genital mutilation, the national religion is Islam. We could discuss the history of Islam in Africa, the conquests, wars, and back and forth with Christian invaders, but the article doesn't much call for that, now does it? Calm down, religious studies student. You'll stress yourself to death if you keep reading into things on the internet with such hostility.
