The hackers posted Ashoka Chakra in Tricolour, along with Indian Independence Day message.
The greetings’ headline read “15 August, Happy Independence Day”.
The message posted thereafter read “Freedom in the Mind, Faith in the words…Pride in our Souls…Let’s salute those great men, who made this possible”.
The message was followed by the Indian national anthem “Jana gana Mana…”.
There was no official response from the Foreign Office in Islamabad and the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
