On May 18, 2014, the Shumoukh Al-Islam forum published several guidelines for posting material in its technical subsection. The subsection is used by forum members to discuss a variety of technical topics, primarily pertaining to computers and cyber-security.
According to user “Muraqib9,” who is Shumoukh Al-Islam’s technical subsection supervisor and published the guidelines, the publishing of any technical materials that are prohibited according to the shari’a was now banned. Topics published in the technical subsection should exclusively deal with tutorials, inquiries, technical-related news, and information security topics, which can be beneficial for the mujahideen and their supporters.
