The family of a woman accused of violating ISIS' dress code says she was tortured to death

Source: Business Insider

A female member of the Islamic State has reportedly tortured a 21-year-old Syrian woman in the northern city of Manbij who was accused of violating the group's strict dress code. The Syrian woman was arrested last week, and her body was later returned to her family.

According to ARA News, the victim died after being tortured by the female jihadi known as Oum Farouq. Women under the rule of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh, are forced to wear a black veil of two layers to conceal their eyes, loose abayas, and gloves. Women are also not allowed to go anywhere without a male guardian.

The woman's family member told ARA News that they received her body with clear signs of brutal torture. "She was harshly tortured. We have received her dead body full of physical effects of torture," the relative said. "We cannot even protest against this horrible crime. The only judicial department in Manbij is the Sharia Court, which supports such crimes."

Women are also oppressors in radical islam.

1. Women can be just as criminal as men.

 

I'm very sorry for the victim and her family.

3. being born a woman. Why do some women in the U.S. vote for people who

want to control their bodies?

Brainwashing or indoctrination, it is really sad

9. she didn't wear the islamic garb. that's it.

there was a case a little while ago where a father strangled his daughter to death (with the help of her brother) because she did not want to wear the hijab. The father said that he did it to get the respect of the muslim community.

than the men. I always hold women to a higher standard, especially when it comes to behavior towards women. But zero sympathy. This disgusting piece of crap needs to be exterminated just like her male counterparts.

26. It's gotta suck to be tortured to death

the mindset of the people who do this to someone for daring to white after labor day, or violating whatever their dress code is, is horrifying. it is horrifying that there are people like this in the world.

The best thing we can do at this point is set up an underground railroad to help these people escape.

16. to me, anyone wearing any of the stuff these killers want, are also guility of supporting this sort

of behavior.

if people in other countries protested this brutality by abandoning the dress code a clear message would be sent to isis that their brutality will not be tolerated by the rest of the culture.

19. So if some poor woman decides that she wants to live she is ....

"also guilty of supporting this sort of behavior?" Really?
The woman that was tortured to death apparently tried to not be "guilty of supporting this sort of behavior" as you put it.
So Syrian women should sacrifice themselves to satisfy your moral conscience while you sit safely behind a keyboard?

32. So women wearing the Hijab in Saudi Arabia are guilty of...

supporting ISIS?
Seems to me that they can and have been jailed and killed there as well.
Women in countries where they are free are inherently able to do what they want...including wearing traditional garb.
So your statement makes no sense given the circumstances.....

23. That doesn't make much sense

 

What next, calling out any Muslims who have beards as crypto-extremists?

Hijab strikes me as a lot more complicated than the simple patriarchal oppression explanation that is often advanced in western countries. Some years ago when I lived in Amsterdam I had a landlady whose family was Pakistani but who had grown up in the Netherlands. When I first met her (to rent the apartment) she seemed completely westernized, pantsuit, high heels and so on. IIRC she was a loan officer at a bank or something along those lines, and professional dress standards are much the same here so she wouldn't have looked out of place in the financial district of any US city.

Anyway we hit it off socially as well as commercially and would meet up noce or twice a month to chat and indeed to flirt a little (were were close in age and since both of us were originally from other countries we had that in common too. One day she showed up in elaborate hijab, to my great surprise. I asked if she there was some family event or something and she said no, she had been catcalled on her way home from work the previous day and was pissed off about it, and that she sometimes work hijab because she preferred to be left alone, as well as because she wanted to maintain her cultural identity, as well as because she liked the clothes for their own sake. I knew less than nothing about and so she told me all sorts of interesting things about the clothes and Pakistani Islamic culture in general, how it had been more difficult for heir parents to adjust to Dutch norms and so on.

So while Islamic patriarchy invariably tries to impose hijab on women, not all women in hijab are necessarily under the sway of Islamic patriarchy. I'm not inclined to jump to conclusions about people's religious or cultural motivations for wearing it, nor do I think it's appropriate to extend some sort of collective responsibility for the outrages perpetrated by ISIS to anyone wearing traditional religious garb, any more than I would judge a Jewish person sporting orthodox garb for actions of the Israeli government that I find disagreeable.

21. "supports such crimes"? that's an ... unsafe ... assessment

"The only judicial department in Manbij is the Sharia Court, which supports such crimes."

i can only hope that statement has mutated in translation for western press, or the entire family will be subject to reprisals for apostasy.

"watch what you say, watch what you think": W's great national fantasy, adapted to jihadist sensibilities in the middle east

24. Why not? It's not as if women are incapable of extremism

 

There are plenty of conservative Islamist women. This picture depicts female Iranian police officers detaining women for contravening 'correct' dress codes during one of the periodic public morality clampdowns.



Here in the US it's not hard to find women who express hardline conservative viewpoints notwithstanding the misogynistic aspects of their philosophy.

where women are so controlled, I wouldn't believe anything the men say.

28. ISIS isn't in the habit of trying to cover things up and present a facade of normality, now is it?

 

You could well be right that such crimes occurred, but I imagine the ISIS response to any accusations of rape or sexual assault would have ranged from indifference to approval. 'Will this make us look bad?' seems to be rock bottom on their list of priorities.
