About this Event

Foundation for India and Indian Diaspora Studies(FIIDS)
Invites you to a

Public Awareness Event: Genocide and Enslavement of Yezidi's by ISIS  (A Report Will be Released)

We are organizing this event on a humanitarian basis to create awareness about atrocities including rapes, killings and enslavement resulting extreme human rights violation of Yezidis, are a minority ethno-religious group of northern Iraq by ISIS since 2014. They are non-muslim and non-arabs. In August 2014 , ISIS (Islamic state of Iraq and Syria) had attacked Sinjar region in northern Iraq where majority of Yezidis in Iraq stay. The ISIS terrorists massacred thousands of yezidi men and abducted many more women and children. About 50,000 Yezidis escaped to the nearby Sinjar mountains and had to stay there with limited supply of food and water, facing starvation and dehydration. The abducted women had to undergo the horrors of rape and abuse and many of them have been sold as sex slaves.The Yezidis are still under ongoing atrocities including hundreds of them be enslaved for sex and hence need help on an international level for assure their safety and survival.

This attack by ISIS has ravaged the yezidi community and still today there are many yezidi sex slaves. Thousands of them are still refugees in Turkey and other neighboring countries. They need a lot of help from the International community.
