PTI Facebook Pages Hacked, Millions of Fans Lost

PTIPakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s more than 30 fan pages were hacked today in a single go, costing the political party millions of fans go wasted.

No one has taken the responsibility for this massive hack down of PTI’s facebook fan pages.

Citing President of the Insaf Students Federation in Karachi, Arsalan Ghumman, The Express Tribune reported that the official Facebook pages of PTI leader Imran Khan, the student wing Insaf Students Federation, and several, more including that of Dr. Alvi were hacked into and hidden from the public’s eye.

“The pages were hijacked at 3 pm on Friday. We are in touch with the Facebook authorities to recover them,” he said.

On other hands Facebook is notorious for taking such cases non-seriously.

Reportedly, hacker first cracked the gmail id of Mr. Imran Ghazali, the web manager of PTI social media team before cracking into facebook pages of political party.

It is unclear so far if pages were deleted or are kept private (hidden from public) by the hacker.

If not recovered, this is going to be a big blow PTI’s short term plans. This incident yet again reminds us that we are living in a country without cyber law.

  • 30 pages are really big deal. But I have a feeling that pages will be restored soon. even facebook can’t bear PTI trolls for long. :p

    All i can say is
    1. Stop using Windows
    2. Stop using public computers (computers that other people use). They may have keyloggers
    3. Stop using open wireless networks which you don’t trust! Others can sniff the data that is being transmitted!

  • GOD bless PTI

  • Arsalan Ghumman

    Pages are hacked. Some are recovered. We will be back soon.

  • binary-zero

    lol wut? khekhe

  • Azhar

    This is a desperate attempt on the part of those who fear PTI’s popular support and also its comparatively better utility of modern technology to meet its political ends.

  • so sad

  • Is this happening to all facebook pages?

  • v sad news … for all PTI fans. ..

  • it must have hurt very badly to PTI as there were millions of fans on their different facebook pages.
    Punjab Chief Minister Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif must form a IT specialist team to investigate this matter.

  • We do have cyber crime laws..but they are not that much effective as still alot of details are needed to be scrutinized in parliament about their implementation.

    And i have observed, many evil minded people are taking advantage of this incident by creating fake PTI pages and pretending them if they are New PTI pages.

  • Ovais

    @SaadGH “OR at least brain if they’re not using it.”

  • To all the Hackers of PTI Pages:

    I know you want to prove that just like you hacked the pages you can also hack the supporters of PTI. Well, I want to let you know that you are mistaken.

    Now you’ll come to TV and say that they can’t secure there pages, how they will secure the whole country. Well, You can blame PTI for Low security on Internet but We are the future of Pakistan and you cant stop us.

  • ALI ZAIDI

    Well Well Well — This was bound to happen not by humans but by Nature. Once a new faced Q2 officially inducted looters and culprits of Zia, Musharaf, BB, Sharifs Rajs — in hope to make us (poor and innocent Pakistanis) fools once again under banner of PTI —- The NATURE STRUCK. Who does not know on this Earth what these HOTIS, LEGHARIS, KASURIS, QURESHIS, KHATATKS etc etc are? Late Paghara Sahib said rightly, IK will be caught on the boundary.
