ISIS has released a video purporting to show members of its religious police burning hundreds of Christian books which it considers blasphemous towards Allah.
The footage shows a militant tossing pamphlets and manuscripts bearing crucifixes on the front cover onto a bonfire in the terror group's stronghold of Mosul in northern Iraq.
It is the latest incident in which the jihadists have sought to.....
purge society of anything that doesn't conform to their violent interpretation of Islam.
The video was posted online yesterday by its news agency Amaq with the title: 'Diwan of education destroys Christian instruction books in Mosul.'
The Diwan Al-Hisba – or Chamber of Morality Police – was set up by ISIS soon after seizing swathes of territory in its lightning offensive through Iraq and Syria in June 2014.
It is responsible for enforcing the group's warped version of sharia law and imposes penalties ranging from flogging for minor misdemeanors like smoking to amputations and beheadings.
