ISIS sex slave survivor: ‘They forced us to pray before raping us’

London: A 21-year-old woman, who was kept as sex slave by the notorious Islamic State group, narrated her heartbreaking ordeal about how she was captured in her home and sold as a sex slave.

Nadia Murad, who hails from the Yazidi community, was captured from her home by IS fighters in the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar, before she was sold as a sex slave.

Murad was one among thousands of women and children ISIS have taken and forced to become sex salves.

“When Daesh (IS militants) entered my village, they killed children, the old and young men. The next day, they killed the old women and led the young girls, including me, to Mosul.

“In Mosul, I saw thousands of Yazidi women where they were distributed to their slave masters. There I saw a huge Daeshi, who wanted to take me.

“I implored to another man to take me instead when I saw he was smaller. But he turned out later to be one of the worst people I’ve ever seen,” the mirror.co.uk quoted her as saying.

“The Daesh used to force me and other captives to pray and then rape us. We were not worth the value of animals. They raped girls in groups. They did what a mind could not imagine. In their so-called Sharia courts, they had our names and phone numbers of our slave masters. They would call us whenever they wanted to spend time with us and sell us,” she said.

Murad was eventually managed to escape from her so-called “owner”.

“I am the victim of terrorism disguised under the cloak of Islam. All these crimes are committed in the name of Islam,” she added.
