New Delhi: The official website of People for Animals (PFA), an animal rights NGO founded by BJP MP Maneka Gandhi, was hacked on Friday by a group of “ethical hackers” over her remarks made on Malappuram district while referring to the death of a pregnant elephant in Kerala.

A message on the defaced website read, “Maneka Gandhi dragged the sad death of pregnant elephant for dirty politics,” with the popular ‘coffin dance’ music playing in the background.

Maneka Gandhi has been facing the wrath of Keralites after she tweeted that Malappuram district was known for “its intense criminal activity,” especially with regard to animals.

“Mallapuram (sic) is known for its intense criminal activity specially with regards to animals. No action has ever been taken against a single poacher or wildlife killer so they keep doing it. I can only suggest that you call/email and ask for action,” she tweeted.

The message on the website further said the incident happened in Palakkad district and “we all know that you deliberately brought up Malappuram district to spread communally motivated false information targeting Muslim majority !!!.”

“Your agenda is clear, love for animal is intertwined with hate for Muslims. Spreading false information by a person especially being an ex-minister and a Lok Sabha member is a real threat to the nation and not acceptable,” it read.

The message on the PFA website also read, “the bond between Hindu and Muslim in Malappuram is strong. So, stay down, keep dreaming and keep it real.”

The web page was hacked by ‘Kerala cyber warriors’.

The page features a person in a Guy Fawkes mask, which was used as a major plot element in ‘V for Vendetta’, a British graphic novel written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd.
