Bengaluru: Whatever information people around the world get about IS is presented by US/West controlled media. In fact very few people know the reality about what is going on in IS controlled territories. Many videos and images which went viral on social media about the atrocities of IS were found fake by Russian forensic labs.The only first hand information we got about ISIS was the narrative by Indian nurses who were detained by IS in Iraq July 2014.
Last year a group of 46 Indian nurses were held “against their will” in a part of Iraq seized by Islamic militants. On their returning back to India what they said about ISIS was surprising.
“They didn’t do anything, they didn’t disturb us and they didn’t harm anyone… They talked nicely,” one of the Indian nurses said.(Aljazeera)
“They told us that you are all our our sisters. You would not be harmed. But we did not believe them”, said another nurse Sandra .(First Post)
Now one of the four Indians detained in ISIS-controlled territory in Libya appreciated the behaviour of ISIS after their release.
Vijay Kumar, on Tuesday said that although he was not harmed during his detention, the last statement made by ISIS before releasing him was a request to ‘follow Islam’ reported ANI.
“The IS people who took us just asked us if we were Muslims or non-Muslims. Since we were non-Muslims they detained us in camps and they did not do anything. They did not harm me; they did not even touch me or any of the four people,” Kumar said.
“They told us since we taught their students they released us but asked us to follow Islam. This was their last statement. I am not going back, this is my final exit. The other two are still under detention,” he added.
