New Delhi: In what seems to be a serious breach of their social media security, the All India Football Federation has claimed that their twitter account was hacked after the handle published tweets taking potshots at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The tweets, which have now been deleted, were immediately retweeted by other users, and read the following

"Very (pleasantly) surprised to see Modi speak about what's happening in the country, given the violent vile federation they are a part of"

The tweets came at a time Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a stern message to 'gau rakshaks' on Thursday said that killing people in the name of cow protection is not acceptable.

There was another tweet sent out from the AIFF account, there was a message for the PM which stated,"Now that Mr Modi has said that no one can take the law in his hands, he has to ensure the perpetrators don't get away with the crimes"

The social media wing of the AIFF was quick to delete the tweets and has since stated that their account was hacked and that the body does not comment on politics and non-sporting matters.
