Early this morning, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party’s website was allegedly hacked. At the time of the filing of this report, the website was down and showing “error 522” message. As of now it’s not known who is behind the attack but as per a few social media posts, before the site went down, there were some memes that were created around Prime Minister Narendra Modi and German chancellor Angela Merkel. So far, it’s not known till what time those memes were up on the website before the site went offline.

The site, at the moment, remains down but the "error 522" message has been replaced with the following text, "We'll be back soon! Sorry for the inconvenience but we’re performing some maintenance at the moment. we’ll be back online shortly! — Web Admin
