Recently, ISIS top leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi made a call to Muslims around the world to join Daesh, and it was turned down with the most genuine (read as hilarious) excuses on Twitter.
This must have hurt especially after ISIS also lost ground in Iraq. It was reported that Iraqi ground forces swiped out ISIS out of the city of Ramadi which was considered a ISIS stronghold.
In an audio tape, the IS leader had reportedly spoken about how war on the ISIS is a war on Islam and Muslims and said that the global opposition against them was a sign about them being right.
Soon after Iyad El-Baghdadi, an activist during the Arab Spring translated the messages, and replies started pouring in.
Some said they were keen to fight but their love for watching football came in between. While some were bothered about their strict parents and coming home in time. For some missing their favourite TV series or movie wasnâ€™t worth it. Some had even better reasons.
