Paintball Guns Are Used on Women in Chechnya; Women Must Cover Bodies to Avert Being Sprayed

The Worldwide Religious News website reports today (March 15, 2011) that Chechnya's Kremlin-installed strongman Ramzan Kadyrov has ordered Chechen women to wear "modest attire" that covers their entire bodies -- including their heads -- whenever they go outdoors.

He now has vigilantes on the streets in Chechnya with orders to attack disobedient women with paintball guns.

The New York-based Human Rights Watch says the practice of using paintball guns on Muslim women is cruel, and violates the basic constitutional rights of Chechen women, who are Russian citizens.

Chechnya is a Republic of Russia -- located in the Caucasus Mountains region -- and 94 percent of its population of nearly one and one-half million is Muslim.
