KARACHI – After taking the Islamic State (ISIS) social media manager into custody, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Thursday confirmed that the suspected had been arrested for ‘unethical, misleading, click baiting’. FIA officials confirm that Imran was seen making misleading banners on ISIS’ official page. According to officials, the suspect was also involved in the brainwashing of budding social media professionals, encouraging them to sensationalise headlines, and choose misleading images, to generate traffic to the ISIS website. “The FIA will no longer tolerate the ‘bara ailaan’, ‘ahem khabar’, ‘maroof adaakara’, ‘bari wicket gir gayi’, ‘aap hairaan reh jaeinge’ that end up completely differently when the link is clicked,” a senior FIA official told The Dependent. Following the arrest, counter-terrorism efforts have been upped to identify and take down other social media executives guilty of the same crime as Imran, sources told The Dependent.
