ISLAMABAD – Having established its presence on Twitter and Facebook, the Lashkar-e-Taiba’s charity front Jamaat-ud-Dawah has sought help from computer programmers to develop develop games and mobile phone apps that it intends to launch next year.
The first hint about the JuD’s plans came in the form of tweets from JuD_Official, the group’s Twitter account.
JuD_Official said that the games would highlight the group’s “charitable” work. Abdul Rehman from JuD’s information technology and social media department said that the group plans to make “educational, informative and philanthropic kind of games that will infuse positive thoughts such as helping others in need, emergency situations, Islamic ethics and learning of the Holy Quran and Sunnah”.
He said the move was apparently inspired by the teachings of the Prophet.
