There has been no official confirmation from the BJP about the hacking of its official website.
The official website of the Bharatiya Janata Party – www.bjp.org – has reportedly come under attack from hackers. As per a report in Indian Express, the website was taken down on Tuesday morning after hackers defaced it.
The homepage of the BJP website showed a photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with German Chancellor Angela Merkel along with an expletive message, the report said.
No group has taken responsibility for the cyber attack. There has been no official confirmation from the BJP about the hacking of its official website.
The BJP website remained inaccessible till the filing of this report. A message on the home screen from the admin, however, says it will be back up soon.
“We’ll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment. we’ll be back online shortly!” the message read.
Head of Congress social media team Divya Spandana was quick to take a swipe at the ruling party over the incident. “Bhaiya aur Bhehno if you’re not looking at the BJP website right now- you’re missing out,” Spandana said in her tweet.
