The al Qaida offshoot, Islamic State (ISIS), which has seized large area of northern Iraq including the second largest city of the country, has made wearing of full face veil compulsory for women other wise they would be punished harshly.
The Sunni insurgents, who have declared a caliphate in part of Iraq and Syria under their control, also laid the guidelines for how to covering face with veils, as a part of imposition of their radical Islam.
“The conditions imposed on her clothes and grooming was only to end the pretext of debauchery resulting from grooming and overdressing, ” the group said in a statement.
“This is not a restriction on her freedom but to prevent her from falling into humiliation and vulgarity or to be a theater for the eyes of those who are looking.”
A religious priest told media in Mosul that ISIS gunmen had shown up at his mosque and ordered him to read their warning on loudspeakers when worshipers gather.
