Takfiri Ideology Has No Respect for Women’s Rights: Iran’s UN Ambassador

Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gholam Ali Khoshroo said women have suffered the most at the hands of extremism in the Middle East, stressing that Takfiri ideology holds no respect for women’s rights.

“Women are among the main victims, grappling with the scourge of violent extremism and terrorism. The spread of violent extremism, inspired by takfiri ideology, that has no respect for women, threatens in an unprecedented way the life and rights of women and girls. They have suffered the most and been targeted for systematic sexual exploitation and slavery, rape and other forms of sexual violence by extremists and terrorist groups,” Khoshroo said on Tuesday addressing a UN Security Council meeting on “Women and Peace and Security: Sexual Violence in Conflict” in New York.
