Cyber War Against Govt Websites; In Protest Of Govt. Inaction To Anti-Muslim Violence

A group of hacktivists that identify themselves as ‘Operation Sri Lanka’ claims to have made continued cyber attacks on several the official government websites including that of the Sri Lankan High Commission in UK, in protest of the government’s inaction to the anti-Muslim violence that erupted in the island nation.

hacktivists‘Operation Sri Lanka’ group made the announcements of the cyber-attacks from their Twitter Handle @OpSriLanka, tweeting:

❖OPERATION SRILANKA @OpSriLanka –

UK #Srilanka n High Commission Website Hacked: http://www.srilankahighcommission.co.uk  Expect us!

The website of the Sri Lankan High Commission in UK has been taken down and remains offline at the time of writing. Several other government websites have similarly been knocked down by the spate of cyber attacks.

The group had also hacked the website of Buddhist extremist group Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) as well as the Government Information Center.

Last evening their Twitter handle announced:

❖OPERATION SRILANKA @OpSriLanka

Government Information Center #Srilanka #TangoDown http://www.gic.gov.lk

The hackers have also released login credentials including email addresses, passwords for several government agencies of over 340 Sri Lankan government sites. The information that was leaked on Pastebin – a web application used to store texts especially by programmers, it read – ‘Sri Lanka Government leak for doing nothing to stop extremists attacking Muslims in Sri Lanka!’

Among the sites of which the login credentials were leaked were Department of Immigration and Emigration, Department of Police and the Prime Minister’s Office.

    I utterly deplore the criminal GoSL and their actions against all citizens – democrats, human rights fighters, independent medial outlets, minorities and all those who dare to stand up against the criminal rulers.

    But I have a question for you hackers. Where were these hackers when non-muslims are subjected extremist attacks from the muslim community around the world. If you stand up on all occasions then I would take my hats off to you. But your campaign against extremism and racism is highly selective. You only make noise when you come under attack but continue to hold ministerial positions in the very same government who’s website you have defaced.

    “Where were these hackers when non-muslims are subjected extremist attacks from the muslim community around the world.” Maybe you cannot read and comprehend? The hackers are called Operation Sri Lanka, hence their focus is the racism issues in Sri Lanka, why are you condemning them for not hacking GOSL website for every extremist attack that happens globally? You are a real moron.

      Tell me moron. Where were these hackers when Minister Rishard and his goons attacked Independent media editor who was a tamil?. Where were they when that muslim trouble maker spewed racist venom which BBS showed to the chief monks to get their blessings to justify their dastardly actions against innocent muslims?. Where were they when Muslims went on a protest supporting Bin laden who was responsible for the deaths of citizens of other nations?. Where were they when the Sinhalese army at the instigation of Gota when on a fake tiger hunt and killed/arrested a mother and her young daughter both of whom were demanding the knowledge about the whereabouts their missing son. It is racism when it is directed against you but not against others. Hard to condemn since a muslim is the minister for justice under whose watch all the injustices are being perpetrated by the regime.

      ” force that cheap muslim minister Hakeem to resign from the Govt as he is a shame on all whom he claims to represent”

      Its a good idea.

      However, one should ask oneself whether one treats all politicians equally when they aren’t serving the people who voted them to parliament.

      I would have appreciated your comment had you also sought ways and means to force Douglas to resign during the war.

    What is the common denominator of violence around the world?

    How many suicide bombers exploded bombs today?
    How many schools were bombed today?
    How many soldiers killed today?
    How many stonings, beheadings took place today?

    And who is doing this.

    Please read world news. Don’t be like frogs in a well.

    Please read the religion of peace, CNN, RT, Al Jazeera, Jpost.
