PESHAWAR: Islamic State wall calking reappeared on the outskirts of Peshawar with unknown people writing pro-ISIS slogans on the walls of a government primary school in Wahid Garhi.

Talking to The Express Tribune a local resident said that someone had written slogans in Arabic language on the school’s wall, which falls within the jurisdiction area of Khazana police station.

The resident said that initially they thought the graffiti had something to do with Independence Day.

“I think it is not a coincidence that the slogan ‘Dolat Islamia Albakistan’ has been written in Arabic on the eve of August 14,” added the resident.

Pro-ISIS graffiti had started appearing in different parts of the country between November and December last year with reports of graffiti from Peshawar, Quetta, Karachi, Multan and Gilgit.
