New Delhi: The official website of Jamia Millia Islamia University was hacked late on Monday to display a greeting which said ‘Happy Birthday Pooja. Your love.’

While no group claimed responsibility for the hacking attack, the website was restored on Tuesday morning.

The Jamia Millia Islamia is a prestigious central university established in the capital in 1920. The cyber attack comes weeks after the official websites of the Home, Defence and Law ministries were hacked, raising questions on India’s ability to counter such threats.

The varsity has condemned the hackers said it would be taking the issue seriously. "It is unfortunate that someone does such pranks to send personalised messages. We would be taking this issue seriously. There would be a meeting and we will decide future course of action," the varsity's media coordinator Saima Saeed told PTI.

She said that the varsity received information about the hacking between 12 and 1 am. "Our first response was to restore it and we managed to do it in six hours," she added.

In the past, websites of many educational institutions were hacked, including IITs of Delhi, Madras, Bombay and Kharagpur, Delhi University and Aligarh Muslim University.

Twitterati had a field day wishing 'Pooja' a happy birthday.

Some others questioned how the cyber attack was successful in the first place.
