Former ISIS Chief in Raqqa exposes the true nature of Hisba

Syria

A former ISIS Chief in the organisation’s de facto capital, Raqqa, has spoken to al-Aan news outlet about the mental state of many of the Hisba patrol officers, who are responsible for forcing their interpretation of Sharia law on people.

He said that the Hisba is the organisation’s dumping ground for uneducated members, and that many of them display psychotic characteristics, causing them to commit “astonishing violations against people” and that anyone who complains is also punished.

He also said that they are profiting from their positions, referring to an example of how they confiscate tobacco and then sell it.
