The Sindh Investment website was hacked on Tuesday by an anonymous person, who urged the government to “shut down the schools now” as coronavirus cases across the country witnessed a major spike.
“Hacked By Anonymous. This is a warning message to Pakistan Government,” screamed the message.
“Student Lives are no joke! Shut the Schools down now. Students are the real assests of a country, don’t destroy your assets,” read the message by the hacker.
“Save Students ! Save Pakistan!”
“Greetz : Anonymous”
The website was hacked a few hours after Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani said that schoolchildren will not be granted winter vacations this year.
“Therefore, there’s no question of winter vacations right now,” he had said.
He added that a final decision on the matter will be taken during a National Command and Operations Centre (NCOC) meeting scheduled for late November.
