LAHORE: The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), website was defaced by hackers, claiming it was in protest against the JI and its Amir Sirajul Haq over alleged support for terrorism and the Taliban.

Speaking to Dawn.com, a JI official connected with the party's IT and social media, said the website had been hacked twice on late Monday night and early morning on Tuesday.

He said that the source of the first attack was in Pakistan itself, while the second attack originated from Bangladesh.

"This is all being done to defame the JI and a conspiracy against the efforts being made by Sirajul Haq for the party," the official said.

"The site has been recovered... we are working to have it secured so that this does not happen again," he said.

The party website showed messages along with videos and pictures after it was hacked claiming a link between the JI and Taliban.

A photo allegedly showing Sirajul Haq during a funeral prayer of a Taliban militant was also uploaded on the site.
