A group of Bangladeshi Grey Hat Hackers (BGHH) called Ablaze Ever have hacked and defaced three high-profile Sri Lankan Government websites in protest of “disrespect of Islam”.
The sites of the Ministry of Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms (reprimin.gov.lk), the Chief Government Whip of Parliament (govtwhip.gov.lk) and the Deyata Kirula Exhibition (deyatakirula.gov.lk) have been affected, according to Softpedia.
The hackers have said that the sites were breached to protest against the “disrespect of Islam”.
The hacker posted a message reading “I protest against disrespect of ‘Islam’. Why do you insult Islam when we don’t insult your religion?!?! Last warning for Sri Lanka Government. Stop this!!” on the websites.
A scrolling message on the hacked sites says: “Message to Sri Lanka Govt.: We are Sinhalese group protests Muslims and Halal meat, burn effigy of ‘Allah’!!!! In this protest, the cut-outs and banners read: ‘Sri Lanka is not an Arab country for making Halal foods. Halal is a death-trap to destroy the Sinhala nation. One of the cut-outs had a picture of a pig with ‘Allah’ written on it. And they burnt an effigy named ‘Halal’. I think you never play with Muslims. I’m never go away from you.”
Currently all the hacked websites are not accessible.
