According to social media, Nushi had received death threats because of his long, blonde hair, good looks and rumors that he was preparing to participate in a male beauty pageant.
Iraqi authorities believe that extremists are behind the deaths of many young people because of their immodesty or speculation that they might be homosexual.
Social media users mourned the loss of Nushi.

It’s sad that a religion is allowed to flourish that makes people believe that this type of thing is good. While we may not like someone or agree with their lifestyle, that is no reason to take their life.
The evil losers that brutally murdered Nushi were not doing God’s bidding.
