NEW DELHI: Websites of Delhi University, IIT-D and Aligarh Muslim University were hacked on Tuesday, allegedly by Pakistani hackers as a response to a hack by an Indian hacker on the Pakistani Railways website and “in solidarity with the innocent Kashmiri people being killed by the Indian Army!” However, the messages was removed after later access to the websites.
At around 3:30, visitors of the website noticed that the interface of the major educational institutions were replaced with a message for the “government, and the people of India,” along with a soundtrack of Pakistani rock band, ‘Zeest’ in the background.
“Greetings Government of India, and the people of India. Do you know what your so-called heroes (soldiers) are doing in Kashmir? Do you know they are killing many innocent people in Kashmir?” was the message on all three sites, along with two videos of alleged brutalities committed by Indian troops in Kashmir.
The hackers, who identified themselves as Pakistan Haxors Crew (PHC) left the message: “Stuck by PHC” on all three websites. The hackers however claimed that they did not delete or steal anything, but were here to “deliver my message to the government and the people of India.”
The hackers claimed that the attack was in response to “This hack is in response to Code-Man’s hack of railways.gov.pk and in the solidarity of innocent Kashmiri People being killed by Indian Army!”
The hackers also exclaimed that “Kashmir will become Pakistan!”
Commenting on this, ABVP national media convenor said that “DU cannot manage one website and they are talking about conducting online examinations this year.”
He chided the university for poor management and said that they “should strengthen their basic system and then move forward.”
