NEW DELHI: The secular marriage website -- secularmarriage.com -- launched by the DYFI, youth wing of the CPM, intended to help liberal youth find partners sans caste and creed, got hacked on the second day by an organisation called Islamic Army. Apparently, the site was inaugurated on Wednesday by a Muslim fundamentalist organisation.

The portal, which was conceived as part of the DYFI’s progressive agenda, got around 20 registrations on the initial day itself. But the page was not displayed on Thursday morning and instead, the site showed messages which read “Ya Muhammed, Ya Allah”. The hackers had also left a message that there would be cyber-wars in countries disrespecting Islam.

“We had been getting threatening calls and messages ever since the DYFI announced its plan to launch this secular marriage portal. Now it has become a reality on the very second day itself,” DYFI leader M Swaraj told Express, adding, “We have approached the authorities, seeking immediate action.”
