The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Last Thurs­day, an Iraqi Kur­dish Yazidi Par­lia­ment mem­ber, Vian Dakhil burst in to tears af­ter she was in­sulted by Ma­jid al-Gharawi, an MP from Sadr Bloc.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, al-Gharawi said: "The Yazidi girls can be­come Sabaya (women cap­tured in war) and get dis­trib­uted among strik­ers protest­ing in front of Green Zone.”

Dakhil crit­i­cized alGharawi for hav­ing such an in­sen­si­tive view to- ward mi­nori­ties in the coun­try.

"I won­der if Muq­tada alSadr will ac­cept some­one like al-Gharawi rep­re­sent­ing his bloc. I won­der if the strik­ers in front of Green Zone have gath­ered for na­tional pur­poses or they have other aims.,” said Dakhil.

The Sadr Bloc has been asked to apol­o­gize.
