Not everyone enjoys Bollywood music, it seems. British commandos have been blasting songs from the Hindi film industry at ISIS fighters in Libya to ‘freak them out’, British media reported.
The Special Forces troops came up with the idea after a Pakistani-born intelligence officer with the British Army said Bollywood tunes would really annoy ISIS, Britain’s Daily Mirror said.
In one instance, the Joint Special Operations Command’s psychological operations unit intercepted the insurgent’s communications and blasted them with Bollywood chart toppers. No, they were not trying to get them to dance.
The ISIS militants have imposed Sharia in the town of Sirte and banned anything western or frivolous. In these circumstances, playing Bollywood songs will be seen as a huge insult.
