A group of hackers from Pakistan hacked a website of the Gujarat Education Department and posted derogatory remarks about the Prime Minister Narendra Modi on its homepage, a senior official said.



The IT department of Industrial Extension Bureau (iNDEXTb), which hosts and runs the website 'vidyasahayakgujarat.org', noticed it and relaunched the website within hours, said general manager of the department, Harshil Darji.



"Website belongs to the Director, Primary Education under state Education Department, which uses it to invite applications for 'vidyasahayaks' (teachers). It was hacked by a Pakistan-based hacker group early morning," said Darji.



"As soon as we learned about it, engineers started maintenance and removed the material within two hours. We have re-launched the website," said Darji, who added that the hackers were found to have simultaneously hacked at least 21 other websites, including two websites of Hyderabad based companies, across India.
