Hackers left a deface page along with their famous message against Indian government and in support of Kashmir. The deface message was expressed in following words:

  • This is a Wake-up call to the ‘collective consciousness’ of Indians. Ask yourself, do you really deserve celebrating Independence Day while suppressing freedom struggle of Kashmiris?”

  • Indians will have to face the generation which would be more dangerous than the previous one’s. No peace process, no music, no oppression can deter kashmiris from fighting for their freedom, it took India more than 250 years to attain freedom, even if it takes 2500 years for kashmiris to fight for their freedom they will do so.Fight till kashmir is free.
