According to reports, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has started distribution of pamphlets in bordering regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan, in a bid to increase its influence in South Asian region.
The Pakistani media agencies have reported that the booklets titled Fata (victory) have also been distributed in Peshawar city as well as in AFghan refugee camps on the outskirts of the city.
ISIS calls on the local population for supporting the groups struggle for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate.
The distribution of pamphlets comes as a number of hardline groups operating in Pakistan and Afghanistan have already announced support for the group headed by Afghan Taliban.
Insurgents belonging to a faction of the Hezb-e-Islami led by Gulbuddin Hekmatyar have said they cosider to join the Ilamic State militants and continue to their insurgency attacks against the Afghan government, event after the NATO forces leave Afghanistan by the end of this year.
Hezb-e-Islami fighters have confirmed their links with the Islamic State and insist that they would keep fighting until Sharia Law was established not just in Afghanistan, but throughout the world.
" Fighters from a militant Islamic group in Afghanistan, allied to the Taliban, have told the BBC they are considering joining forces with Islamic State (IS). Their commander also said they would still fight the Afghan government, even after Nato forces left in 2014. Commander Mirwais said that if IS, which he called by its Arabic acronym Daish, proved a true Islamic caliphate, they would link up with it."

Jumpin' on the wagon, eh? Must fit in with their plan since they were given a deadline years ago.
This is assuming that the *people* getting the pamphlets can read.
