The People for Animals India website was hacked today. The page had a message slamming Maneka Gandhi by a group of hackers who referred to themselves as “Kerala Cyber Warriors”. Maneka Gandhi had earlier tweeted about how Malappuram was known for its violence.
“Maneka Gandhi dragged the sad death of pregnant elephant for dirty politics,” read the message. “Since you are an “environmentalist” and a dumbass in Geography, we are introducing Google Maps to your little brain.”
The hackers added a screenshot of Google maps highlighting that Ambalapara, the place where the elephant died, was in the Palakkad district and not the Malappuram district. Malappuram district has a Muslim majority, which is why the hackers alleged Maneka to be playing communal politics.
“Your agenda is clear, love for animals is intertwined with hate for Muslims,” went on the message. The message ended with a note saying that the bond between Muslims and Hindus in Malappuram is strong.
The message at the end read, “We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.” This is the motto of the Anonymous Hacker Group that released a threat for the Minneapolis Police Department after the death of George Floyd.
