British special forces are blasting Bollywood music as a new psychological warfare weapon against Islamic State (IS) terrorists in Libya on the advice of a Pakistani-born intelligence officer, it emerged on Wednesday.

They came up with the idea after the Pakistani-born intelligence officer with the British Army said that Bollywood tunes would annoy the IS, which considers music un-Islamic.

“We needed to unnerve militants and at the same time use some sort of passive measure to gauge their force strength in the area we are working and it went well,” a source told the Daily Mirror.
