London, Jul 21: Parents be aware, do not allow your children to watch cartoon films. Your kids may join terror groups after being inspired by such "Disney-like animated cartoon". The popular terror group, which was once led by slain Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda has expressed their plan to use cartoons to recruit children for terror activities.

According to some secret sources, the proposed cartoon films by the terror outfit, will present children in a jihadi's (Muslim extremist) outfit participating in killings, raids and terror plots.

Recently, a group called Abu al-Laith al-Yemen in their website - al-Shamouk jihadist (in Arabic-language) has announced the plan of recruiting kids in terror moves with the help of such cartoons.

A former jihadist with links to al-Qaeda who is now an analyst at Quilliam, Noman Benotman said, "It's a Disney-like film aimed at kids that tells stories of the Prophet, stories of holy wars and anti-Western propaganda," and he also added, "But I think it could backfire. Families will be angry that al-Qaeda is directing this at their children."

Such terror groups like al-Qaeda has recently started using animated films and multimedia to scatter militant acts around the world. In an other instance, an online women's magazine with makeup and chastity tips was also released by a Yemen-based extremist group.
