About this deal

The Qur’an also suggests certain means of integrating slaves, some of whom were enslaved after being captured in war, into the Muslim community. According to State University of New York at Buffalo professor Yoshiko Nozaki and other sources, the majority of the women were from Korea and China. The slave who bears her master’s child becomes an umm walad (literally, mother of a child), gaining certain protections. Over the following four months the girls were raped and beaten day and night, with those who became pregnant forced to have abortions. The term "comfort women" is a translation of the Japanese ianfu (慰安婦), [6] which literally means "comforting, consoling woman".

It is a story of how a vulnerable teenage girl on holiday in Greece with her mother was trafficked into the sex industry and spent six years as a prostitute – in brothels, on the streets, in dingy hotel rooms – before finally making her escape from a life of relentless physical and sexual abuse. Many of the stories about the abduction and enslavement of Yazidi women and children described them as “sex slaves” and featured graphic, sometimes lurid, accounts by newly escaped survivors. Today is distribution day, God willing,” said one of the men, as he flashed a grin at his companions. Since comfort women were forced to travel to the battlefields with the Japanese Imperial Army, many comfort women perished as Allied forces overwhelmed Japan's Pacific defense and annihilated Japanese encampments.Cocooned from the outside world, she began to feel safe enough to confide in some of the staff about what had happened to her. In fact, modern Muslims have generally devoted little attention to thinking about or discussing the religious, ethical, and legal issues associated with slavery, perhaps because it is difficult to acknowledge and confront the scriptural and traditional permission for it.

After four harrowing months, the girls were moved to a camp at Bogor, in West Java, where they were reunited with their families. After all the turmoil and chaos I had been used to,” she says, “it was like living in a calm, well-organised family home. Reflecting their dehumanized status, Army and Navy records where referring to the movement of "comfort women" always used the term "units of war supplies". The Japanese officers involved received some punishment by Japanese authorities at the end of the war. Brightly coloured flags of the various groups flutter above their respective checkpoints, which are sometimes only metres apart along roads that were recently controlled by Isis.Leila was transported 50km east to a school-turned-prison in Tel Afar, where the women were crowded into classrooms functioning as cells, guarded by fighters who continued to pick out beautiful girls to serve as slaves. A 2015 study examined archival data which was previously difficult to access, partly due to the China-Japan Joint Communiqué of 1972 in which the Chinese government agreed not to seek any restitution for wartime crimes and incidents.

At least 80% of the "comfort women" were Korean, who were assigned to the lower ranks, while Japanese and European women went to the officers. It’s there in the way politicians talk about refugees, and in the way the stateless are sometimes written about and photographed by the western media. Mosul is 120km (75 miles) east of Sinjar, and its capture was quickly followed by the fall of other towns. In 2007, the Japanese government issued a response to questions which had been posed to Prime Minister Abe about his position on the issue, concluding that "No evidence was found that the Japanese army or the military officials seized the women by force.After reaching Baghdad, Leila and her niece travelled north by plane to the Kurdish city of Sulaimaniyah, and then by road to the camps where many Yazidis from Sinjar had taken refuge, and where their families were waiting. With the same needle and some thread, she began embroidering her underwear with the names and numbers listed in her phone in case Isis found it and took it away. A conclusion of the study was that the Japanese Imperial government and the colonial government in Korea tried to avoid recording the illegal mobilization of comfort women. In 1985, Japanese comfort woman survivor Shirota Suzuko (1921-1993) released her autobiography, detailing the sufferings she and other women endured as comfort women.
