More than 90 Iraqi students have been stoned to death for their Emo haircuts by Islamic extremists in Baghdad after Iraq's interior ministry dubbed it devil worshiping
Iraq's Moral Police released a statement on the interior ministry's website condemning the emo phenomenon among Iraqi youth, declaring its intent to eliminate the trend. The move is part of a wider clampdown on young people taking on what government officials call Western appearances in Iraq. "The Emo phenomenon or devil worshipping is being followed by the Moral Police who have the approval to eliminate [the phenomenon] as soon as possible since it's detrimentally affecting the society and becoming a danger," the statement read. "They wear strange, tight clothes that have pictures on them such as skulls and use stationary that are shaped as skulls. They also wear rings on their noses and tongues, and do other strange activities,." Since the statement was published Islamic extremists have been harassing and killing teenagers with strange or emo appearances.
