A 15 year old boy named Ayham Hussein was beheaded for being caught listening to western pop music in the Iraqi town of Mosul which has enraged the public and shocked the world.
A spokesman for the Nineveh media center told ARA News:
“Ayham Hussein was captured by the jihadis while listening to Pop music at the grocery store of his father in the Nabi Younis marketplace in western Mosul. He was referred to the Sharia Court, which issued a decision to execute him.”
The boy was publicly beheaded and his body was returned to his family. The execution did not sit well with the public however. When news spread of the death, the community was outraged as there is no rule in Sharia law that bans listening to music.
ISIS has taken liberties with this issue and banned music from parties, in the car, in stores and other locations.
It is said that this is the first case of its kind, in which ISIS has beheaded someone for listening to music. Do you think these continued extremes will lead people to move away from the terror group or only embolden them? Sound off in the comments below!
