Twitter account of Indian ambassador to UN hacked image of Pakistan flag posted

The Twitter account of India's permanent representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin was briefly hacked on Sunday, following which two photographs of Pakistan's flag and their President Mamnoon Hussain were posted from it.

"Akbaruddin's account was later restored with the diplomat taking to Twitter to announce that it will take 'more than a hack to keep me down". We got your DM correspondence!

One of the tweets from the account was a link to a YouTube video of Ayyildiz Tim. In 2016, nearly 200 government websites were hacked in India. Some of their targets have been inexplicable - the website of a school in a village in southern England, the United Nations country team in Ethiopia and Kenya's transport ministry. The social media giant also blocked access to the ambassador's account. In fact, more than 700 websites associated with the Indian government were hacked from 2013 to 2016.

The 1955 film Awaara by Raj Kapoor can probably be termed as India's most successful export to Turkey.
