So Muhammad hates percussion and brass?
The pictures, which have been released by ISIS’ ‘media wing’, show a line of armed soldiers watching a fire burn what appears to be a variety of drums and saxophones.
An accompanying message with the pictures states: “Hesbah seized these un-Islamic musical instruments in the state of Warqa.” They were burnt “in accordance with Islamic law”.
It’s not the first time that musical instruments have been the target of ISIS’ attention. A faction of the group in Syria was recently filmed beating a group of musicians and destroying their instruments.
