Malaysian women are believed to have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) forces to offer Jihad Al-Nikah or sexual jihad, senior intelligence officials told The Malaysian Insider.
Authorities confirmed that three Malaysian women have journeyed to the Middle East to join up with Isis forces.
Jihad Al-Nikah refers to a controversial concept where Sunni women allegedly offer themselves in sexual comfort roles to fighters for the establishment of Islamic rule.
The concept originated from a Wahhabi edict around 2013, that called for Sunni women supporters to come forward for sex jihad and boost the morale of fighters battling against Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.
“These women are believed to have offered themselves in sexual comfort roles to Isis fighters who are attempting to establish Islamic rule in the Middle East.
“This concept may seem controversial but it has arisen as certain Muslim women here are showing sympathy for the Isis struggle,” an intelligence official told The Malaysian Insider.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said one of the Malaysian women had travelled to the Middle East in December last year.
“The woman, in her 30s, went to Turkey before meeting up with middlemen who helped her to complete her journey to Syria via land routes.
“Another Malaysian woman in her 40s is believed to have linked up with Isis forces sometime in April this year,” the source said.
The intelligence official said Malaysian women were not the only ones who were performing sexual jihad as there were also other Muslim women involved.
“Intelligence exchanged with other countries revealed that Sunni Muslim women from Australia and the United Kingdom had also joined up with Isis.”
The intelligence official said Isis had issued a decree or edict in June this year ordering for the conscription of Jihad Al-Nikah or sexual jihad.
“Shortly after the town of Mosul in Iraq was captured by Isis forces, people were ordered to send unmarried women to jihad for sex,” the intelligence official revealed.
Jihad Al-Nikah? How about Jihad Without Knickers?
Talk about going commando.
This concept has apparently given rise to the naming of a new sexual position: Sunni side up.
