sünnet düğünü – the muslim circumcision
With circumcision, around 1.5 million young Turks annually do the first step into manhood and thus become a full-fledged muslim. Whether they like it or not – the ritual is mandatory. Kemal Özkan, the most famous circumciser in Turkey, had more then 115,000 operations in his 40-year career. Politicians, celebrities and soccer stars sacrificed their foreskin for the faith by the king of the circumciser.
