The official website of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) was defaced Wednesday by a team of Indian hackers, slamming PPP patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for his recent statement on Kashmir.

A group calling themselves the 'Indian Hackers Online Squad' replaced the website's homepage with messages ridiculing Bilawal for his comments, and claiming that “will never get Kashmir”.

“To Citizens of Pakistan, Pakistan's Army, Pakistan Peoples Party and Specially Mr. Bilawal Bhutto . Without any Violence Let Me tell you that Pakistan will never Get Kashmir. This is the Truth. You Have to Accept it,” said the message left by the hackers on the PPP official website.

Last month, Bilawal was reported to have said that party would get back entire Kashmir for his country.

“I will take back Kashmir, all of it, and I will not leave behind a single inch of it because, like the other provinces, it belongs to Pakistan,” he was quoted as saying.

Bilawal’s statement was not taken well on the other side of the border.

A spokesperson for India's Ministry of External Affairs had responded by terming Bilawal's comment “far from reality which takes us back into the past century”.

Update: Undeterred by reaction from the Indian side, Bilawal later posted a message on Twitter in what appeared to be a response to the hacking of the website.

"My 2 statements have robbed Hindustan of its sleep. This is just the beginning. Wait and see what happens next. Kashmir will become Pakistan!" he said.
