Jizya and Reported ISIS Thugs Rape Assyrian Mother and Daughter

Muslim Response to reports of un-Islamic actions
This story may or may not be true. If true, then these thugs are clearly in the wrong. It's reported that 'ISIS' thugs in Iraq have raped an Assyrian mother and daughter because they could not pay a tax (Jizya).
It's purely un-Islamic to rape somebody for being unable to pay the Jizya. It's obvious thuggery - nothing to do with Islam. Muslims should never commit such deplorable actions. Muslim authorities should look into this story and condemn appropriately.
The AINA news agency is reporting that an Assyrian mother and daughter were raped by militants in Mosul after saying they did not have the money to pay the jizya poll tax for non-Muslims.
The rapes were carried out in front of the father who was so traumatised that he committed suicide, reports Dr Sallama Al Khafaji, a member of the Iraq High Commission for Human Rights.
