Kidnapping girls for sex slaves and human trafficking happens daily. One of the most horrific stories, yet one with a happy ending, is a story of Nadia Murad. ISIS abducted her when she was 21 years old.
Sex Slaves of ISIS Have dreams
Nadia is a dreamer. She wants to open her beauty salon. She would spend hours taking pictures of brides and their beautiful hair. However, in 2014 when the Islamic State took over her village, that dream died. ISIS humiliated Nadia. The terrorists enslaved, raped, and tortured her, and she wasn’t the only one. She was only 21 years old when ISIS took her.
Sex Slaves of ISIS: Nobel Prize nominee
This brave girl is now a Nobel Prize nominee for fighting for her people. Nadia was one of the fortunate ones who was able to escape at the age of 24. After her escape, she wrote a book about her fight against the terrorists.
The story started when ISIS ordered the people of Kocho into a courtyard and requested that they convert to Islam. Yazidism was one of the oldest religions in Mesopotamia, as it was there 6000 years ago.
Nadia had never heard of the Islamic State, and she had no idea they had been planning her destiny for a long time. However, ISIS had already decided to attack the village and capture the girls to be used as sex slaves. They had planned it all: coming into the homes, capturing the girls, and selling them.
She fought against being a sex slave
After her capture, she experienced things no human ever should have to. She met many other women who were used as sex slaves. Some of them killed themselves, but others planned to escape. Nadia planned to kill herself at first, but stood brave and made a pact with two other girls that they would escape, and they did.
