Islamic State threatens to “pursue and kill” members of Kaka’i religious minority if they don’t convert to Islam

Extremists of the Islamic State group (ISIS) have vowed to “pursue and kill” members of the Kaka’i religious group in northern Iraq, considering them “infidels who must be eliminated”, local sources reported.

The Kaka’i Kurds are one of several multi-ethnic groups who are part of the Yarsan or Ahl el-Haqq (people of truth), a religion founded by Sultan Sahak in the late 14th century in western Iran. Some Yarsanis in Iraq are called the Kaka’is.

The majority of the Kaka’is live in northern Mosul and other areas in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, where they face eminent threat of annihilation, similar to the Yezidi Kurds, at the hands of jihadi groups.
