Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan has created a Facebook page to recruit writers for a planned quarterly magazine and to work on video editing and translation.
The Umar Media TTP page, with nearly 290 likes, had a message posted on November 22 seeking writers for “Ahyah-e-Khilafat”. “Dear brothers and sisters, ‘Pen is mightier than the sowrd (sic)’ Now you have a chance to use this mighty weapon,” it said. Prospective contributors can write on “on topic of your choice, or on jihadi current affairs, history, Islamic movements, plight of ummah, etc etc”, the message adds. The job “discription (sic) is video editing, translations, sharing, uploading, downloading and collection of required data”.
