The newly launched website of Delhi’s Press Club of India was hacked on Thursday morning and anti-India and anti-Modi comments were posted on it.

 

“We have lodged a complaint with the cyber cell of Delhi Police,” said Nadeem Kazmi, general secretary of the club, adding that four days ago, too, the website (pressclubofindia.org) had “gone black’. He said the website started rolling about a month ago was yet to be formally launched.

 

The cyber attack comes a day after the Pakistan People’s Party website was hacked and comments posted against Bilawal Bhutto for his comments on Kashmir, as also at a time when hostilities are building up along the border due to ceasefire violations by Pakistan, leading to civilian casualties in J&K.

 

A screen shot of the hacked site showed “HACKED BY MaDdY ZeOx”, warning that “Our target is your Government’s Websites. … … …  We will Inshalaah (sic) with The help of Many Muslim Hackers. Take You Off From The Internet ! (sic) Your Credit Cards, Your Bank's Account, Your Servers ... Are In Danger!  In Jammu and Kashmir Millions Of People Were Dead... Pakistan's Muslims Are Killed In The Force's Attacks... Indian Forces Destroyed Kashmir's Families ...Killed Innocent Childrens (sic) ... But No One Cares !!!!." 

 

The hackers also address ‘dear citizens’, saying: “Muslims Are Not Terrorist! (sic)” and ‘dear admin: We Just Want To Publish Our Message!”

 

Apart from other incriminating anti-India messages, even addressing the President Pranab Mukherjee, the hackers sign off as “Team Cyber Warriors” – “Expect us! And Try To Catch Us: D” with a logo carrying Pakistan’s flag.
