Daesh seeking recruits in PakistanTrying to lure him into Daesh (ISIS), the would-be recruiter told Pakistani journalist Hassan Abdullah, "Brother, you could be such an asset to the Ummah" – the Islamic community. Abdullah replied that he was enjoying life and had no plans to join the militants. Daesh had its eye on Abdullah not because he adheres to any extremist ideology but because, as a journalist, the group believed he could be a boon to its propaganda machine, Abdullah told the Associated Press, recounting his meeting with the recruiter. Here in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city, Daesh loyalists have set up their strongest presence, carrying out multiple attacks in the past year and setting up networks.Daesh first announced its presence in Pakistan with a bloody attack in May in Karachi in which gunmen boarded a bus carrying Shiites, ordered them to bow their heads, then opened fire, killing 45 .The man told Abdullah he closely followed his writings – then said he was from the Daesh.
