Iran’s cyber police unit referred as FATA conducted a crackdown arresting 53 people for supporting Daesh Takfiri terrorist group on the internet.
On Monday 7th December 2015, the head of Iran’s cyber police Brigadier General Kamal Hadianfar said that some of those individuals who had backed the Daesh dogma out of negligence were released on their own recognizance while the rest remained in custody.
Majority of the individuals had been arrested in Iran’s border provinces.
During the crackdown, FATA identified some other 285 pro-Daesh websites and profiles.
At least 108 websites and profiles were based overseas and countered through the Interpol.
Another 132 websites that had promoted the Daesh dogma were identified and blocked during the crackdown period.
Many Islamic scholars, including from Iran, have denounced the activities orchestrated by Daesh Takfiri group, retaliating that they have no links to Islam, whatsoever.
