The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has recently introduced a new series of laws that ban men in Syria’s Raqqa from wearing skinny jeans.

Under the new laws, which were revealed by the anti-ISIS campaign group 'Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently,'  men who wear skinny jeans will reportedly be jailed for 10 days and will get an “Islamic course” during his jail period.

“ISIS tightens penalties and uses the principle of intimidation in dealing with public, which led to the migration and escape of many people,” Jassem, a citizen who lives in Raqqa, said.

“Freedom of expression has become a crime, so you can not oppose a decision issued by the group,” he said.

“Otherwise you will be arrested on charges of violation of God’s law as its fighters claim, but they are far from this law,” he said.

As part of the new introduced laws, the militant group also said it would imprison anyone caught listening to music, smoking or being later for prayer.
