The ISIS branch in Pakistan has launched its first Urdu-language magazine called Yalghar (Invasion). The first edition was published at the end of April 2021 on social media accounts, according to Jamestown Foundation.
Many Christian voices have been censored and blocked from social media platforms, but ISIS is regularly able to use social media to disseminate propaganda materials.
This is a huge development. Yalghar is ISIS’s first indigenous propaganda product and this indicates the level of support that is growing in Pakistan.
Yalghar magazine is basically 30 pages consisting of ten articles and an editorial that cover topics that are important for recruiting efforts in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Syria. BTJ missionaries are currently serving in Pakistan and countering ISIS’s message of death and hate with a message of Love and Life.
Please continue to pray for the BTJ missionaries working in Pakistan.
