British special forces are blasting Bollywood music as a new psychological warfare weapon against Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in Libya on the advice of a Pakistani-born intelligence officer. They came up with the idea after the Pakistani-born intelligence officer with the British Army said that Bollywood tunes would annoy ISIS, which considers music un-Islamic. The strategy is also used in Libya where the forces were playing loud bollywood music at dawn through huge speakers mounted on vehicles.
According to Mirror the psychological operations unit of the force known as Joint Special Operations Command intercepted the terrorists communications and blasted them with Bollywood chart music.
Daily Mirror’ reported, “We needed to unnerve militants and at the same time use some sort of passive measure to gauge their force strength in the area we are working and it went well.”
British special forces are waging psychological warfare against the terrorist death cult using Bollywood music.
As part of a force known as the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), British forces are training Libyan troops on how to drive out ISIS from the town of Sirte and a 185-km stretch of the Libyan coastline. The psychological operations unit intercepted ISIS communications and blasted them with Bollywood chart music, in direct retaliation of the Sharia law imposed inside Sirte banning all things western.
In another incident, a Special Forces team, along with some Libyan troops, left two cars near checkpoints on the edge of Sirte. At dawn they blasted Bollywood music by remote control through two huge speakers mounted on the vehicles, the Mirror said. British tabloid The Sun quoted a senior source as saying: “We needed to unnerve militants and at the same time use some sort of passive measure to gauge their force strength in the area we are working and it went well.”
British special forces are currently in Libya in a non-combat role, training the nation’s forces in how to wipe-out ISIS. The SBS sister agency of the SAS is training troops in how to drive out the Islamic State fighters from the town of Sirte and a 115-mile stretch of the Libyan coastline. The UK troops will only launch an assault on ISIS if they are attacked first. It is believed ISIS, who have held swathes of coastal Sirte for 20 months, have around 4,000 insurgents in the region.
