The official site of People for Animals (PFA), a basic entitlements NGO established by BJP MP Maneka Gandhi, was hacked on Friday by a gathering of “moral programmers” over her comments made on Malappuram region while alluding to the passing of a pregnant elephant in Kerala.
A message on the damaged site read, “Maneka Gandhi hauled the pitiful demise of pregnant elephant for grimy legislative issues,” with the famous ‘casket move’ music playing out of sight.
Gandhi has been confronting the anger of Keralites after she tweeted that Malappuram region was known for “its exceptional crime,” particularly as to creatures.
“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.
