Al-Baghdadi is said to have sent a letter to all of his media offices saying they were no longer allowed to show graphic, violent scenes in their carefully edited videos, which caught the attention of the wider world with the emergence of 'Jihadi John' in 2014, according to Daily Mail.

He is said to have claimed the decision was based on not offending other Muslims, who might think the videos are scary for children.
