UK troops using Bollywood music as weapon against IS

LONDON: British special forces are blasting Bollywood music as a psychological warfare weapon against Islamic State terrorists in Libya on the advice of an intelligence officer, a report said on Wednesday. They came up with the idea after a Pakistan-born intelligence officer with the British Army said that Bollywood tunes would annoy IS, which considers music un-Islamic. “We needed to unnerve militants and at the same time use some sort of passive measure to gauge their force strength... and it went well,” a source told the Daily Mirror.
