Hindu Mahasabhas website hacked beef recipe uploaded instead
news Controversy Friday, August 24, 2018 - 19:05

The official website of the Akhil Bharatiya Hindu Mahasabha was hacked by the ‘Team Kerala Cyber Warriors’ and a recipe to make a beef curry was posted instead. This reportedly after the chief of the Hindutva outfit Chakrapani was seen in a video saying, “beef-eaters should not be saved” from flood-affected Kerala. 

“Hacked by Ghos7_Roo7,” the website read. For almost three hours on Friday, the website displayed the logo of the hackers, a video of the meat being cut and an elaborate recipe to make 'Kerala spicy Nadan beef curry' under it. Under the recipe, a message was uploaded by the hackers for the President of the Hindu Mahasabha. 

“...We respect people for their character and not for their food habits.”  

The messages and the videos were deleted and three hours after it was hacked, the website was down and displayed an Error 404 message. As of 7 pm, the website had still not been restored.  

There has been no comment by the Hindu Mahasabha so far on the issue.  

Earlier this week, Chakrapani had courted controversy with his bizarre comment where he suggested that only those who don't eat beef should be rescued from floods in Kerala as it is a sin to help beef eaters. 

Over the past two weeks, Kerala has been reeling under massive rains and floods. Around 370 people have been killed and over 10 lakh people were rendered homeless.  

Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, addressing the media on Thursday, stated that around 10 lakh people are currently living in relief centres set up across the state. The number of relief camps as on Wednesday was 3,314 and were down to 2,774 on Thursday. The number of families in relief camps on Wednesday was 3,27,280 and on Thursday, they stood at 2,78,781. 

With the floods receding, the operations in the state are currently focused on the rehabilitation of those displaced.
