The Islamic states group has launched ‘Khelafabook’ just like the ‘Facebook’. It’s been claimed that the site is not only used for connecting and for uploading videos but also for recruitment purposes.
The site was established by a man in the Iraqi city of Mosul, who registered his country as Islamic State— but is hosted in Egypt.
Social media sites are finally cracking down on Islamic State. Experts have stated over the past several months, 18,000 accounts linked to the group have already been shuttered.
Featuring an amateur map of the world dotted with ISIS flags, the site was shut down after just 24 hours and its Twitter account has also been suspended. The move was to “protect the information and details of its members and their safety,” according to a banner on their page, which added that it is “not sponsored by the Islamic state.”
“We reiterate that the purpose of launching the site was to clarify to the whole world that we do not only carry guns and live in caves as they imagine. We advance with our world and we want advancement to become Islamic,” it said.
According to Associated France Press, there are at least 45,000 Twitter accounts used by ISIS supporters, including those created and suspended in recent months.
Denmark Bans Halal Slaughter
The Danish government has banned the slaughter of animals for the production of halal and kosher meat. A similar ban is already in force in Sweden and Norway, as well as other European nations.
The change to the law has been called “anti-Semitism” by Jewish leaders and a clear interference in religious freedom by the non-profit group Danish Halal. The ban has divided opinions in the country and across the world. Minister for agriculture and food Dan Jorgensen said, “Animal rights come before religion.”
However, Danish Halal, who is campaigning against the law was quoted by Mail Online as saying, “The new order is a clear interference in religious freedom and limits the Muslims and the Jews right to practise their religion in Denmark.”
