We are extracting confidential data and passing on your personal information to the soldiers of the khilafah, who soon with the permission of Allah will strike at your necks in your own lands!

The list comprising personal details of nearly 1400 personnel was released online on Wednesday.

Details including departments, area codes, emails and phone numbers were posted on Twitter account for several hours before being removed, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
