ISIS burns 19 Yazidi girls to death for 'refusing to be sex slaves'

IANS | 

MOSUL: Militants from the Islamic State( ISIS ) group executed 19 Yezidi girls who refused to be sex slaves by burning them alive inside iron cages, news site ARA News reported. 

The victims were set ablaze in the centre of MOSUL on Thursday in front of a large crowd, ARA News reported, citing activists and witnesses. 

"They were punished for refusing to have sex with IS militants," media activist Abdullah al-Malla was quoted as telling ARA News. 

"The 19 girls were burned to death while hundreds of people were watching. Nobody could do anything to save them from the brutal punishment," a witness said. 


The ISIS jihadists took over 3,000 Yezidi girls as sex slaves after they overran Sinjar in northwest Iraq in August 2014, causing a mass displacement of nearly 400,000 people to Duhok and Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan. 


The ISIS continues to hold about 1,800 abducted Yezidi women and girls in Iraq and Syria, according to Kurdistan regional government officials.

There are hundreds of religious faiths in this world with billions of followers. There are Christians, Buddhists, Zorastrians, Hindus, Bahais, Yazidis, pagan and non-pagan. All have some issues or the other in their lives. But all manage to "live" in this same world. But Muzzies are different. Wherever they are they are not happy. They have problems with Hindus in India, Buddhists in Burma\Srilanka\Thailand, Christians in Europe and Americas and Shia\Bahai\Yazidi\Kurds in Middle East. As ... Read More

True. well said. Its high time non-muslims understand their hypocrisy and unite and vote for BJP who upholds hindutva and its ideology.
