    All of Muslim adults done this ritualany of us died in abroad many non Muslims adopted for health reason. Whats wrong

    Waco Wednesday, 04 June 2014 07:28 AM

    This is foolish thing to do. This can lead to health problems like epilepsy as well.

    This is what will happen if you give 4 years AHS Degree. even pharmacist will attempt surgeries and even minor surgeries will end up with loss of lives

    When are we going to stop these types of mutilation in the name of religion. To be true to Islam, these mutilation are carried out without anaesthetics and it the consequent shock that might have killed the infant.

    He is not a doctor but a pharmacy owner.

    Presumably the death was due to ' Hospital Acquired Infection'. The authorities should check whether proper disinfection of the facility and equipment is carried out.

    Cyril de Alwis Thursday, 05 June 2014 09:12 AM

    Governement must prohibit this in Sri Lanka.

    May the little one rest in peace. What a sad news!

    Lankan Wednesday, 04 June 2014 08:34 AM

    do the same circumcission to the doctor without any safety procedures.

    Punchi Banda Wednesday, 04 June 2014 08:43 AM

    Poor baby, not only did he lose his foreskin but his life as well. Sympathies to the parents.

    Ishi Wednesday, 04 June 2014 02:33 PM

    How many deaths have you seen so far?

    #Judge Wednesday, 04 June 2014 03:21 PM

    Margin of error; One in Million.
    May this infant rest in peace (in paradise)
    Poor parents will suffer throughout though (it all depends)

    Adam Thursday, 05 June 2014 10:06 AM

    Why?

    Stormwatch Friday, 06 June 2014 06:06 AM

    Because circumcision is useless and harmful.

    Stormwatch Friday, 06 June 2014 06:09 AM

    Not enough. Circumcision, or tattoos, or ear piercings, or any other body modification, should not be done before the person turns 18 and decides for himself.

    S. Perera Thursday, 05 June 2014 06:46 PM

    Cant Foolish parents wait at least 3 4 years to do this if its a must according yo them.

    Khan Thursday, 05 June 2014 10:46 AM

    Childs consensus on the point seems absolute...

    chinthaka Wednesday, 04 June 2014 11:07 AM

    This is not new. Thousands of 'cuts' done in villages by traditional men even without pain killers.
