ISIS using internet to recruit, garner support: Parrikar

New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday expressed concern over the widespread use of the internet by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS) to recruit more followers and garner major support.

“Daesh (ISIS) is using internet for recruitment and support and are using it for their cause. We need to enhance our capabilities so that we protect ourselves against such cyber attacks,” Parrikar said while addressing the DEFCOM 2015 here.

Following the 13/11 carnage in Paris, ISIS supporters had taken to twitter to gloat about the coordinated attacks, celebrating and lauding the massacre using the hateful hashtag #parisburns. (ANI)
