In a move that has won ISIS more admirers, the Islamic group has passed sanctions to deter people in the city of Raqqa in Syria- ISIS' capital, from wearing skinny jeans, smoking cigarettes, playing music on their cellphones, and arriving late for prayers at the mosque.

Some ISIS sympathisers say this is a welcome development, because it aligns with the tenets of Islam. Activist in the area say it is a gross infringement on their human rights.

ISIS officials in charge of implementing this “Holy” sanctions say the penalties include imprisonment for some days, with a compulsory Islamic course, while in prison. To be considered for bail, the offender is required to sit for a test, to ascertain his or her knowledge of the course.

Human rights activist say those who don’t pass are required to pay a fine and stay imprisoned until they can pass the test.
