Daesh tries to recruit young people through social networks
The first days of September went down in history of modern Russia due to the tragic events that took place in Beslan 12 years ago. "Every year on September 3 we honor the memory of the innocent victims of the terrorist acts. We are united in our desire and aspiration to fight terror and the propaganda of terrorist and extremist ideology in our country," chairman of the Coordination Council on Combating Terrorism, deputy secretary of the Russian Public Chamber, Sergey Ordzhonikidze, said during the presentation of a methodical manual titled 'ISIS – a threat to humanity. Why it is necessary to destroy terrorism', prepared by the experts of his council. The publication aims to help people to understand the dangers that terrorism and its ideology bring, and to provide practical guidance in the fight against this global threat.
"It is impossible to defeat terrorism without the support of society, without the active participation of society. Russia has been at the forefront of the fight against terrorism for many years. Our country makes unprecedented efforts to combat this global terrorist threat in a variety of forms, variants and versions. Daesh tries to recruit young people through social networks. On the Day of Knowledge, we want to draw attention to the need to educate wise young people, who would not succumb to the provocations and lies of pseudo-religious and terrorist organizations. Especially since there are a lot of them and they operate quite actively in everyday life and the internet," he noted.
This brochure, written in Q&A form, explains what Daesh is, why Daesh is fake Islam, what its recruitment methods are and recruiters can be resisted. The methodical manual aims to help people to understand the dangers that terrorism and its ideology bring, and to provide practical guidance in the fight against this global threat. The authors also plan to distribute this brochure in electronic format, especially where Daesh recruiters are even more active.
