Political Islam’s Crimes Against Women in the Iraqi City of Mosul

In one of the public health sectors in the city of Mousul, the Islamists committed some of their numerous misogynist crimes that aim relentlessly to quench their thirst for blood and hatred for women.

The Islamist terrorist savages could not tolerate women who work and feed themselves and their families. They want them blindfolded, covered by Hijab and heavy rags thrown in the kitchens of their houses serving as slaves. They want them humiliated, with no opinion or character or a normal life like any sane human being of our time.

Political Islamic groups exploited the chaos, lack of security and absence of law since the USA’s ominous war and subsequent occupation to disseminate horror and terrorism across Iraq. Everyday, they add more transgressions to their criminal record against civility and women’s rights. Recently these women were murdered by the Islamists:


  • Lina al-Aswad a medical doctor who has been practicing for the last 10 years. She was shot dead in Al Qayara – Mousul.
  • Hefi Abdul Satar a pharmacist in al-Khansaa Hospital. She was gunned down before her house in al-Noor suburb. Her family is also threatened to be killed by these terrorists.
  • Sanabul Nwel Tabakh a veterinarian killed in Wahda suburb in Mousul while on her way to work.
  • Layla Abdulla al-Haj Said a professor of Law and Dean of the Law Faculty at the University of Mousl. She was gunned down with her husband. She was also beheaded to further terrorize people in that suburb.
  • Iman Abdul Monem Younis, a lecturer at the Faculty of Languages and head of Translation Department at the University of Mousul, was gunned down.
  • Tagrid Abdul Masih a public servant in the town of Bartila.
  • Hala Abdul Masih (Tagrid’s sister) a public servant in Bartila.
  • Tara Majeed Butros a public servant in Bartilla.

Mass killing is practiced against women working as interpreters or as workers with foreign companies. Many were murdered in the last several months in Baghdad and other Iraqi cities.

Political Islam’s violence against women must be stopped. The terrorist Islamic forces must be expelled from the Iraqi society. This task relies on the will power of women and men who are seeking a world where freedom and security prevail. This goal will only take place if the secular and freedom-loving forces stand up to Islamic terrorism, which claims the lives of more women every moment merely for being women.

Let us make ending Islamic terrorism against women in Iraq our priority and urgent task.

Join the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq to struggle together to put an end to Islamist violence against women.

We call on all women and men in Iraq and worldwide to collaborate and struggle to end Islamist violence against women.
