ISIS jail men for shaving beards, threatens to behead them if they do it again

WORLD
By Mirror | May 15th 2015

A group of men have been arrested and imprisoned by ISIS terrorists - because they shaved off their BEARDS.

The men were jailed for three months and told that if they repeat their 'crime' they will be beheaded, according to reports from within the city of Mosul in Iraq.

The terror group introduced a ban on shaving this month. Preachers issued threats that men who shave would be punished because it is against Sharia law.

The arrests were reported by Mosul Eye, who claims to be a blogger in Iraq.

The blog said: "ISIL (another name for ISIS) arrested a group of young men for shaving off their beards, and locked them in jail for three months.

"If they repeat this offense, ISIL will rule to behead them."

Mosul Eye also reported ISIS executed one of its own militants after he was found guilty of raping his sister-in-law.

Earlier this month it emerged that Islamic State terrorists have banned skinny jeans as part of their crackdown on freedom of expression.

Any hipsters wearing the trendy jeans, listening to music on their mobile phones, or smoking, could be jailed by the terrorists for ten days.

They would also be forced to take an Islamic course and to stay in prison until they pass, it was reported in Raqqa, Syria.

The new laws were revealed by the anti-ISIS campaign group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS).
