New Delhi:The website of prominent educational institutions and some government departments today came under cyber attack by purported Pakistani hacker who posted pro-Kashmiri messages on them.

The group posted anti -India and anti Army messages on the websites along with links to videos that shows "Indian brutality in Kashmir."
The message on AMU website read, "Do you know what your so-called hero's (soldiers) are doing in Kashmir? Do you know they are killing many innocent people in Kashmiris? Do you know they have raped many girls? Do you know they still are raping girls in Kashmir? How would you feel if your brother, sister, father and mother gets killed :(? How would you feel if someone rapes your mother or sister; Won't your life and your families be destroyed?"
The claimed that the hack was in response to hack of Pakistan Railways website by an alleged Indian group.
"This is in response to Code-Man's hack of railways.gov.pk (http://www.zone-h.org/mirror/id/29230257?zh=1) and in solidarity of innocent Kashmiri People being killed by Indian Army!" the message on AMU website read.
The message also reads, that "Nothing deleted or stolen.Just here to deliver my message to the government and the people of India."
Most university websites are managed by the government-run National Bioinformatic Informatics Center or NIC.
Around ten government department websites including the CSIR-National Aerospace Laboratories were also been hacked.
Lately, an alleged Indian group hacked nearly thirty Pakistani government websites to'avenge' the sentencing of former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.
The message posted on the hacked Pakistani website read, "Charges against Kulbhushan Jadhav are fictitious, fake and farcical. There is no evidence of wrong doing by him.This is an act of "premeditated murder'. Earlier it was Saarbhjeet, now it's Jadhav."
Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was awarded death sentence earlier this month on charges of espionage and sabotage activities in the country.
