The twitter handle mainly posted propaganda material on behalf of the ISIS. The recent beheading videos of the hostages were all posted by this man called Mehdi for the ISIS.

Mehdi a resident of Bangalore has been operating this account for almost a year. He had initially signed up for the ISIS being completely swayed by their ideology but had to refrain due to financial constraints.

The ISIS was not going to support his family and hence he decided to stay back and operate the twitter handle for them. Sources say that he wanted to contribute in some way or the other.
