“Islamophobia? Under Islam I was raped, I was put in prison, I was lashed, I was beaten, I was sold into marriage, I was literally broken down into pieces and I had to build myself back up. Do you really think my fear is irrational? I have every single right and reason to fear this ideology.” Aynaz Anni Cyrus
Do you remember when Theresa May suggested, Sharia teaching is being “misused and exploited” to discriminate against Muslim women, but insisted that many British people “benefit a great deal” from the strict law system? Let us introduce you to Aynaz Anni Cyrus.
Aynaz Anni Cyrus was born and raised in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Before she reached the age of 15, she endured a hundred lashes and was imprisoned close to fourteen times. Her crimes included wearing nail polish and singing too loudly in public. Cyrus was raped repeatedly by family members, police officers and prison guards, until, at the age of 13, her father decided to sell her off for marriage. He made $50 from the sale.
From there, Cyrus’ world only got a whole lot worse. Her story can be heard in the following video.
