MOSUL (Worthy News)-- Barnabas Aid has learned that women and girls being held captive by ISIS at Mosul's Badush Prison have been given the choice to either convert to Islam, or suffer rape on a daily basis until they change their minds.
Badush holds hundreds of Christian, Yazidi and Turkmen women who are being gang-raped for refusing to convert to Sunni Islam. Some of them are being sold as sex slaves to recruit Muslim men into ISIS; the selling price for an ISIS slave ranges from $25 to $150(US).
Sharia law permits Muslims to take people as war prizes during jihad. As a result, United Nations officials in Iraq estimate that 1,500 Yazidis and Christians – both women and children – may have been forced into Islam's sex slave trade.
ISIS has proclaimed a caliphate, or Islamic state under the rule of a single ruler called a caliph.
