New Delhi: The official website of veteran BJP leader LK Advani was hacked on Monday, allegedly by Pakistani hackers who posted messages of "free-Kashmir" on the portal.
The hacker, who called himself Muhammad Bilal, wrote "Pakistan Zindabad" messages on the site and called for an end to militarized governance in Kashmir.
The hacking comes close on the heels of a claim by Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani that BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi had sent two emissaries to him.
Muhammad Bilal, the hacker, began his message by saying, "Good Morning Narendra Modi" and went on to raise the Kashmir issue.
The message posted on the site terms the freedom of Kashmir as the goal of those who hacked Advani's website.
Meanwhile, Advani, who was in Tamil Nadu on Monday campaigning for the party in Vellore, was not aware of the hacking. None of his associates accompanying him or people at his residence knew of the development.
