Daesh sends out book in Urdu to Pakistanis

 
December 30, 2014

KARACHI: The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Daesh has sent out a book in Urdu language through emails to Pakistanis, especially journalists.
At a time when the government wants to clamp down on hate material in the wake of the brutal Peshawar massacre, which left 148 people dead, it appears the banned outfits have intensified their campaign to reach out to maximum number of people in Pakistan to propagate their agenda.
The book in the PDF format is the first of its kind of literature in Urdu which in detail sheds light on the ISIS, its history, motives behind formation and its policy.“I’m not aware of any such effort or practice through which ISIS propaganda literature, translated into Urdu-language being distributed or delivered in Pakistan,” Director of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Shahid Hayat Khan said when The News inquired if the FIA was aware of propagation of the ISIS literature in Pakistan.
“We are already working on curbing the propagation of hate material, especially the sites spreading sectarian hatred in Pakistan but we have not come up with any information regarding the spread of ISIS propaganda in Pakistan so far,” Shahid Hayat, who also served as Karachi Police chief recently and led the Karachi targeted operation against militants and extremists, said.
