In a bid to reduce the popularity of messaging app Telegram among users in the country, Iran has released a new platform enticing users with an embedded list of “Death to America” emojis.

The Soroush app is currently used by nearly five million users and will be giving five users “a gold coin for signing up,” reported the BBC.

The emojis are comprised of a veiled woman carrying placards “wishing death to Israel, America and Freemasons.” Another emoji shows the female character holding a picture of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.

Recently, Iranian state broadcaster IRIB said that “the activities of the presidency’s Telegram channel have stopped in support of domestic messaging apps.”
