NIT Srinagar website hacked, Pak cyber hackers post anti-India and hate messages

Yesterday, the official website of the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar was hacked by a group of hackers who called themselves ‘All Pak Cyber Skullz Members’. The website was immediately blocked by the authorities after they found that anti-India slogans have been posted on the same.
NIT Srinagar became a target perhaps for the fact that it had hit headlines after a clash between Kashmiri and non-Kashmiri students last year when the latter cheered India’s defeat in the T20 World Cup match against West Indies. The servers were downed after the attack.
Outcome of Pakistan losing the match against India
Immediately after Pakistan lost the cricket match, hackers had taken over the website and posted hate messages — ‘Go Modi go’, ‘All we ask is for freedom, you can kill us, you can’t kill us all, we shall not give up’, ‘Free Kashmir. Freedom is our goal’, and other inflammatory posts.
Top sources told IANS, “After the site was hacked, the website has been blocked and its retrieval is in progress now.” Sports clashes between India and Pakistan have created tension between different groups of students in the institute in the past as well.
Anti-India slogans posted
“We saw that the website had been hacked when some students tried to access it to see a few articles of the syllabus. We were shocked to see that the website bore anti-India literature, anti-Indian Armed Forces propaganda and a call to leave Kashmir and give it freedom,” one of the students told Mail Today.
