The website of private TV channel NewsOne was hacked in an attempt “to open the eyes of Pakistanis as well as the media personnel” towards the killings of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, reported ProPakistani on Tuesday. However, the site has been recovered now.
A screenshot of the website provided by ProPakistani said, “When an actor in India dies every channel including yours covers it till he is buried and even after that. But thousands of Muslims are being killed in (Burma) and our Muslim sisters are being raped and dying with hunger and no one gives a damn.”
The hacker requested that the media give more coverage to the Burma killings, so that the United Nations (UN) takes action against it.
The hacker ended his message with advice to the administrators saying that the website is insecure and should be made secure to protect it from Indian hackers who may try to hack it on August 14. He also informed them that no harm was done to the website.
