Counter-posterism tactics

The mindgame of fighting terror

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Earlier this week posters appeared in Pattan in Jammu & Kashmir’s Baramulla district, threatening to kill 13 persons for assisting security forces. Here is the poster by a group with a grand sounding title of Al Mashterqa Lashkar-e-Taiba Hizbul Mujahideen”.

Here’s the Indian Army’s counter-poster.

In the first panel it says Hey terrorists, why are you fighting these innocent people. Fight with the Army, your fight is with the Army.” In the second it tells the people Don’t fear these terrorists because the army is with you. Call us for help.”

Now let’s see if the message gets through.
