A report published in ‘The Times’ has unveiled that a 70-page manual is being circulated online on the jihadist forums, entreating the extremists to draw money by engaging in online scams and frauds.
The guide for preparing, funding and carrying out terror strikes in the West is created by Islamic State (IS). The Times report states that the guide focuses on the formation of sleeper cells of one or two people and also directs the ‘would-be-terrorists’ to modify their names and also asks them to westernize their ways.
The security services worry about how the guide, which is written in flawless English, makes mention of creation and usage of crude weapons, designing homemade bombs and mobile-phone detonators.
A section in the manual coaches the partisans to shun Islamic clothing and to wear colored contact lenses, and to adopt a modern alias, which help in creating an overall distinct appearance.
The manual, which reads, “Befriend good decent white people who are dissatisfied with their governments, be close to them and offer them support and guidance in life. If these people open up to you, you can decide if you want to tell them about Islam. You will tell them enough information to satisfy what service you require off them, but not more than that,” has alarmed the security forces.
One section of the guide commemorates the two brothers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan, who planted bombs at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, which killed three people and injured over 200 others were injured.
