In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS religious police in the “terrorist capital” of Raqqa, Syria publicly behead a man accused of sorcery. The photo report was released on ISIS terrorist channels on October 6. Viewer discretion is advised.The summary provided with the photo report reads: “Hadd punishment (Strike with the sword) on sorcerers.” “Hadd” is the singular form of “hudud.” Hudud means “boundaries” in Arabic. Most hudud crimes fall under the category of “sex crimes,” such as adultery, fornication, accusing someone of illicit sex, etc.The execution was carried out by ISIS religious police known as “hisbah.” Hisbah is short for “Rijaal al-hisbah” and translates to “men who guard against infringements.” “Infringements” in this context refers to anything seen as non-Islamic by sharia law interpretation.
