ISIS Mujahids In Iraq Ordered Genital Mutilation Of All Women Between The Age Of 11 to 46 Years
ISIS Mujahids in Iraq have ordered that all the women between the ages of 11 to 46 must undergo genital mutilation, which could affect four million women girls in the war-ravaged country. The genital mutilation is unusual in Iraq and is only practiced in certain isolated pockets of the country. The Islamic state, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS), took over large swathes of the country last month and has begun imposing Slafist interpretation of Islam. The UN official said only 20 famililies from Christian minorities remain in Mosul, most of them have reportedly fled to Kurdish-controlled territory. UN official said some Christians have converted to Islam while others have opted to stay and pay the Jazya (tax on Non-Muslims in Islamic State).
