The Twitter account of the Afghan Embassy in India has been hacked, according to press secretary Abdulhaq Azad.

Several tweets from the Afghan embassy in India’s handle were removed after they criticized Afghan President Ashraf Ghani for fleeing the nation after the Taliban seized power. The Afghan embassy’s press secretary in India, Abdulhaq Azad, then stated that he does not have access to the account because  it has been hacked.

He tweeted on Monday morning that “I have lost access to the Twitter handle of Afghan Embassy India, a friend sent a screenshot of this tweet, (this tweet is hidden from me.) I have tried to log in but can’t access it. Seems it is hacked.”

On Monday, the Afghan Embassy wrote in a tweet that “We are all banging our heads in shame. “Ghani Baba” (Ashraf Ghani) fled with his crooks”.

“We are all banging our heads in shame. Ghani Baba @ashrafghani fled with his crooks. He screwed and f***ed everything up. We apologize to everyone for serving the fugitive. May Allah punish the traitor! He legacy will be a stain on our history.”

The tweet was later deleted.
