New Delhi: During investigations by the NIA last year, it had come to notice that IS (Islamic State) was targeting gullible youth and radicalizing them through false propaganda to further its violent designs.
Due to this reason, an appeal was made in September 2021 that any such suspicious activity may be reported to the authorities, including the NIA, on its landline number: 011-24368800.
In recent days, certain misleading messages purportedly issued by NIA are being circulated on various social media platforms. NIA has issued a statement to inform the public that no such message has been issued. Such messages are totally fake and malicious and are part of a mischievous design to mislead the public.
People should not be misled by such fake and false messaging – NIA
People have been advised to join hands with the NIA in safeguarding the country and its people against terrorism by sharing information about terrorist activities and elements.
