  1. I’ve been watching this series ,, I think it depicts a very grim outlook on Islam ,,and shows the men being misogynistic and vile !! Does this series really depicts the reality of this place outside of turkey ?
    It’s extremely worrying if this depiction isn’t true !! It will inevitably bring about more hatred for Muslims !!
    I am not a Muslim , I’m a British woman ,and I found this series a very one sided view on Islam ☪️ a very dark side of Islam

    • Have you ever been to an Islamic country? Have you ever experienced the plight of women there? May be a good idea for you to hear some first-account experiences from those who managed to stay alive and escape

    • Same here. I’m Nigerian and need no soothsayer to tell me how horrible Islam is being practiced here by extremists. But this movie presented something that was akin to the heinous atrocities ISIS committed in the areas they controlled. The opening scene where Yazidis were murdered was very very true. Maybe you should read more about ISIS. The depictions here were fictional but ISIS’ was real
