Charlie Hebdo Magazine Website Hacked over Prophet Mohammed Cartoons
Furious Muslim hackers have done it again, this time they have hacked and taken down the website of French based Hebdo Charlie Magainze.
The website of the magazine is currently under attack by unknown Muslim hackers, the site was attacked after the publishing of insulting cartoons of Prophet Mohammed.
According to the Magazine’s spokesman, ”The hackers have been blocking access to the site since 5am and the attack is still ongoing”.
Spokesman also said that, ” there were a lot of messages and phone calls condemning the cartoons on the cover of magazine but there was no hacking threat and until now, no hacking group has claimed the responsibility of attacking our website”.
Several Muslim hacking groups are already attacking American based websites in protest against the Anti-Islamic movie directed by Israeli-American 3rd rated movie director.
Few hours ago, the official websites of Bank of America & New York Exchange were under attack by unknown Muslim hackers, three days ago three Mexican Government Websites were hacked by a Pakistani hacker and sex days ago, the official website of Brownsburg Schools was hacked and taken down by an Iraqi hacker.
However, according the editor of Charlie Hebdo’s Magazine Stephane Charbonnier said the cartoons would “shock those who will want to be shocked,” and claimed the right to freedom of expression.
“The freedom of the press, is that a provocation? I’m not asking strict Muslims to read Charlie Hebdo, just like I wouldn’t go to a mosque to listen to speeches that go against everything I believe.
“If we start to question whether we have the right to draw Muhammad or not, if that is a dangerous thing to do or not, the next question is going to be: can we depict Muslims in the newspaper? And then: can we represent human beings in the newspaper?”
At the time this article was written, the website of Hebdo Charlie Magainze was still down and showing ”This webpage is not available”.
Update: Pakistani hackers have claimed responsibility for the hackattack and taking down the magazine’s website.
