Tens of Chechnyan Women Lured into Syria to Become Militants' Concubines
A sum of 90 Chechnyan women have been lured into temporary marriage with
rebels in Syria by a Jihad al-Nikah (the Jihad of interim marriage)
Fatwa, sources in Turkey disclosed on Sunday, adding that the females
have been flown from Britain and other European cities to Istanbul and
then crossed the border with Syria."Following a Fatwa (religious decree) by the Wahhabi muftis on Jihad al-Nikah, 90 Chechnyan women went to Hatai border city from Istanbul and entered Syria via the land borders and joined the Salafi groups," the sources said on Sunday, August 18.The sources said that the Chechnyan women, who bore British and other European nationalities, flew to Turkey and went to Syria to join the terrorist groups. "These women plan to become the concubines of the rebels and terrorist groups members," the sources added.Recently, some radical clerics in Saudi Arabia and Qatar have been intesifying their rhetoric against the Syrian government and called for Jihad against the Syrian people.A senior cleric of Egypt's powerful al-Azhar University denounced the recent divisive remarks by the Saudi muftis. Sheikh Mansour Mandour said in June that Saudi cleric Muhammad Al Arefi had expressed his personal views when he urged support for insurgency in Syria.The Saudi sheikh stirred controversy by calling for "Jihad" in Syria. Sheikh Mandour, however, said the Saudi's cleric's comments should be judged by the criteria set in the Holy Quran and Prophet's teachings.The al-Azhar cleric said Muslims need to be sensitive about attacks on their fellow Muslims, whether Shiite or Sunni. He called for a ban on the preaching of radical figures who sow discord among Muslims and pit Islamic nations against each other.
