This is the moment a dancer performs a steamy twerking routine in front of a Muslim boy who has just been circumcised prompting outrage from the youngster’s parents and online.
The incident was filmed in the north-western Turkish city of Istanbul during the unnamed boy’s ‘Khitan’, also known as ‘Khatna’, a term for male circumcision carried out by Muslims as a part of Islamic culture.

In the footage, the curvy dancer is seen exposing her bum and wildly shaking her buttocks in front of the large crowd.
As children were present, including the young boy celebrating his ‘Khitan’, his parents Osman Tasdemir and Adem Barlas have reportedly filed a criminal complaint with Istanbul’s Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office.
According to local media, the charges include exhibitionism and sexual harassment.
The investigation is ongoing.
Netizen ‘Gamze Koch’ commented: “So many people have watched this video. I am ashamed to look at it on my phone. Most of the people in the audience are children. It is shameless and disgusting.”
‘Ahsap’ said: “God will punish her. The toastmaster asked the audience to ‘clap her please’ so he should be arrested too.”
However, ‘Ferit Kara’ wrote: “In my opinion, she danced beautifully.
‘AnotherPlanet’ said: “I blame the religious fanatics who opened the case against the dancer. If you want to complain, complain about all the guns at the ceremony!”
It is not clear whether the woman dancing is a guest or a paid performer hired to appear at the ceremony.
