Miss Murad had the bravery to speak out at Cairo University in Egypt about her ordeal.

“When Daesh [the Arabic name for ISIS] entered my village, they killed children, the old and young men.The next day, they killed the old women and led the young girls, including me, to Mosul. In Mosul, I saw thousands of Yazidi women where they were distributed to their slave masters. There I saw a huge Daeshi, who wanted to take me. I implored to another man to take me instead when I saw he was smaller, but he turned out later to be one of the worst people I’ve ever seen.”

She also spoke about her bone-shaking experiences to the United Nations.
“ISIS militants used to force captives to pray and then rape us. We were not worth the value of animals. They raped girls in groups. They did what a mind could not imagine. I am the victim of terrorism disguised under the cloak of Islam. All these crimes are committed in the name of Islam. I’ve come to the Muslim world to complain and demand an Arab and Islamic stance against Daesh. No religion accepts enslaving women and raping children. We have the right to demand a united global stance because we share others’ values of humanity.”
Miss Murad eventually managed to escape from her ‘owner’ and is now trying to unite the world to destroy ISIS by speaking out about the terror group.
