The official website of the ruling party Bharatiya Janata Party is not restored yet after it was hacked on March 5.
It showed a meme of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German Chancellor Angela Merkel when it was hacked. No community has staked claim for the incident.

“We’ll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment. we’ll be back online shortly!,” reads the bjp.org site since they took the control back.
On March 12, Information Technology Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad told media persons that the website was hacked only for a few minutes. He said, “rogue elements in the society” were behind the attack.
Though BJP shrugged it off as a minor incident, the failure to bring it back points at possibility of data loss from the site.
