The propagandistic dissemination of pledge of allegiance to the new "caliph" of the Islamic State.
Photo, video and area analysis.
On 30 November 2022, when announcing the name of the Islamic State’s new “caliph”, Abu al-Husayn al-Husayni al-Qurashi, the organisation’s spokesman Abu Umar al-Mujahir asked everyone to swear allegiance to the new leader and global Ba'ya campaign began.
In March 2022, 24 oaths of allegiance (some from the provinces themselves) to the former leader arrived via the Islamic State's official central propaganda, all from officially elevated provinces, a total of 12 which later became 14 as the Sahel province was created from West Africa and the Mozambique province was separated from ISCAP.
A total of 24 photo reports and 11 videos were published.
To date, 26 pledges of allegiance have been published, from 14 officially elevated provinces and two non-elevated groups such as Lebanon and Tunisia. In total, over 300 photos and 7 videos have been published (more are likely to come, in which case the following report will be updated).
Divided by geographical areas, a list with photos and some details of the oaths received from official propaganda will follow (material circulated by supporters and sympathisers or unofficial media channels such as Arrukn Media Center from Myanmar and East Asia Knight from the Philippines, which circulated oaths and media products exclusively through their local private channels, will not be taken into account).
