London: The dreaded outfit Islamic State is known for its recruitment drives across the world but even those looking to become jihadists have to undergo rigorous interviews before they are hired. And in a major scoop for security agencies, a list of 23 questions posed to jihadists aspiring to join ISIS' self-proclaimed Caliphate has been leaked by a former fighter, according to a report in the Independent.
The terror group's extensive entrance tests contain a number of details about the recruit including their name, blood group, birth date, birthplace, nationality, past experience in terrorism among others.
A media report revealed names of around 22,000 IS recruits from at least 51 countries who had filled Islamic State's entrance examination forms and joined the terror group.
The form includes a list of 23 questions in Arabic that are to be filled by the IS entrant. Moreover, the forms are also stamped with ISIS logos.
An interesting aspect in the forms is that the fighters are asked to write their fighter name (name given to the fighter when he or she joins a terror group) as well as their mother's maiden name.
According to a report, most of the IS fighters came from Saudi Arabia followed by Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, France, Britain and US.
Richard Barret, a former M16 global terrorism director, said that this leaked ISIS entrance paper could be a goldmine for the counter-terrorism.
According to the report, the question set includes name, fighter name, mother's maiden name, date of birth, nationality, blood type, marital status, address, educational qualification, level of Sharia understanding, previous job, countries traveled, area entered from, recommendation, date of entry, job specialization, special skills, security deposit, among others....
