Islamabad: Geo TV, country’s top News TV Channel, was hacked today by ZHC, (Z Hacking Crew), an hacktivist group that has defaced large scale Indian websites in the past.
ZHC — in its defacement message — has criticized Geo TV for its Aman ki Asha programme and covering every Indian news in its shows. Message started by mentioning that its over one week that curfew has been imposed in Jammu Kashmir but Pakistani media is busy in airing the fashion shows from India and news about Bollywood.
ZHC threatened — Geo and other Pakistani media houses – for defacing their websites again if Kashmiri freedom struggle isn’t given the due coverage.
Here is the complete message that ZHC left on Geo’s website:
Its been almost a week since Indian siege and curfew in Indian Occupied Kashmir and the Pakistani Media is busy in ‘Aman’ Ki Aasha. This Hack is a WakeUp Call.
Do you still need ‘Aman’ Ki Aasha when blood of your brothers and sisters is being spilled on the streets of Kashmir?
Do you still desire ‘Aman’ Ka Tamasha when your brethren are caged in their homes and army troopers patrolling their streets, eager to shot down even an 8 year old who comes out?
Do you still desire ‘Aman’ Ka Tamasha when your sisters are being raped by the Indian occupational forces?
Will you still speak Aman Ki Bhasha while internet, mobiles, newspapers, news channels are blocked and children and even pregnant women are being brutally murdered in Kashmir Valley?
While our brother Shaheed Afzal Guru was hanged in Tihar Jail-India, you were busy showing Horoscope on your channel, and same with other media, who were showing non-sense things at that time in the morning.
Will you continue your treacherous silence over Kashmir Siege or you stand up for your Kashmiri brothers and sisters?? This is a WakeUp Call. If you continue your silence we’ll attack more media websites of Pakistan.
Can you hear what we are saying? Can you?
>> If you don’t cover Kashmiri Freedom Struggle, We will do it ourselves on each of your websites <<
Entire Geo TV website was hacked and defaced, but it is now being recovered. However, some pages are still defaced. It is still unclear if data was damaged too or not.
