ISIS Propaganda from a Bengaluru Executive?

It is a shocking revelation that one of the most prominent Twitter handles carrying on ISIS propaganda happens to be that of a young professional working in Bengaluru in an MNC firm.


The twitter handle was titled Shami Witness and the person is identified by his pseudo name Mehdi.

The incident highlights how terrorism has spread its wings to young professionals with good educational background. It is unfortunate that the Police in Bengaluru had no inkling to the goings on.

It also highlights the failure of the employee behaviour monitoring system in the organization in which the person was employed and HR professionals need to think of new ways of identifying such deviant minds working in the system.


P.S: Another question which the Government of India and Karnataka need to answer is that just as they banned Uber and other app based taxi services, will they ban the ad company in which the person was employed and also other ad companies !
