A teenage boy has been beheaded by ISIS for simply listening to Western music.
Ayham Hussein, 15, was arrested by militants after allegedly being caught enjoying pop tunes on a portable CD player in the group's Iraqi capital Mosul.
He was dragged before a Islamist kangaroo court which sentenced him death in a public execution.
ISIS has imposed its own sickening brand of medieval justice across swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria, executing prisoners for so-called 'crimes' such as blasphemy and being homosexual.
In a statement two years ago, the terror group also banned 'music and songs in cars, at parties, in shops and in public, as well as photographs of people in shop windows.'
It added: 'Songs and music are forbidden in Islam as they prevent one from the remembrance of God and the Koran and are a temptation and corruption of the heart.'
The Sunnis of ISIS and Iran's Shia Khomeinists are at odds over many things. On the issue of fun being strictly verboten in Islam, however (fun being seen as subversive because it is within the individual's--and not the theocrats'--control), they are entirely in synch.
