Sweden is conducting a Nuremberg trial equivalent for ISIS and why the Hindu world must also participate

▪️Yezidis must be in charge of their destiny and that comes from economic and political power.

#YazidiPlight #Sweden #India…
▪️August 3rd, 2014 was a black day for the Yezidis. On that day ISIS descended upon the Yezidi villages and killed 10,000 Yezidi men, took 7000 Yezidi women as sex slaves. 3000 Yezidi women are yet to be recovered.
▪️This was also the beginning of the 74th Yezidi genocide. This genocide was worse than any other Yezidi genocides in history. It uprooted my people, threw the entire Yezidi population into the streets.
▪️The world still doesn’t know about my ppl.We r the most ancient ppl in Iraq. We r the descendants of the Sumerians&our ancestors gave birth to civilization in the middle east.We believe in Reincarnation&hold reverence 4 nature, something not seen or practiced in the middle east
▪️we are also not Muslims and that angers all our neighbors resulting in 74 genocides in the last 1400 years. This despite the fact that we pray for all of Humanity always. In the last genocide, ISIS foreign invaders could identify and kill the Yezidis because neighbors helped.
▪️When the Yezidi delegation visited #India in 2015, the then Foreign Minister of India, @SushmaSwaraj said, “My heart bleeds for the Yezidis”. When another delegation visited India in 2018, Hindus in Prime Television wept with us as we narrated our horrors.
@SushmaSwaraj ▪️No nation, no people can come back without justice being done to her perpetrators. Same for the Yezidis.
@SushmaSwaraj ▪️In recent days, #Sweden has also set up a tribunal, a commission of inquiry against atrocities committed by ISIS ... But the pain of the Yezidis lies deeper. Only if #India joins, Yezidis will find the pillar of strength to bring out the pain and closure to the genocide.
@SushmaSwaraj ▪️Since the 74th genocide in 2014, Yezidis are far from being safe. Recently there was a massive fire to crops, set up by ISIS supporters in Syria and Iraq. 20,000 acres of wheat and barley has been destroyed.
@SushmaSwaraj ▪️Further 134,000 hv bn targeted. No food will lead to starvation. Also,many Yezidis cannot enter their home as they were booby-trapped by ISIS.Most r living in camps where there is little hygiene&hope.We need help to rebuild our lives.Lives lost, temples destroyed,all hopes lost
@SushmaSwaraj ▪️Within the ambit of the Iraqi nation, Yezidis crave for an autonomous region of Ezdikhan where oil resources are owned by Yezidis themselves, where policing is done by the Yezidis. Where all citizens have equal status and none are persecuted because of their faith.
@SushmaSwaraj ▪️ Through this letter, I strongly & fervently appeal to the Indian Prime Minister @narendramodi & Foreign Minister @DrSJaishankar for help.That would be the strongest statement made against any fanatical group which sees Hindus,Yezidis&anyone vulnerable in the world as easy prey
