Over a hundred Pakistani websites including official government portals such as,, pakistani airport websites and have been hacked in the past. Later, a group called "Mallu Cyber Soldiers" took the credit for the feat, saying that it was a payback for crashing the official portal of the Kerala Government.

Just like the world-famous Anonymous hacktivists, "Mallu Cyber Soldiers" is also an online gathering of security experts. The vigilantes work toward protecting Indian websites like fellow defence page from getting hacked.

There is a big cyber war going on between India and Pakistan and the primary goal of these South Indian Cyber Warriors is to secure Indian websites from getting hacked by Pakistani techies. They not only hack but also help recover defaced portals and inform the admins of those sites about the vulnerability and how they can be fixed.

These are the members of Mallu Cyber Soldiers …

US thought India will capture PoK after Bangladesh war: CIA

The US government had thought that the then Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi might order an attack on West Pakistan to capture Pakistan-Occupied- Kashmir (PoK) after India's operation to create Bangladesh got over, recently declassified CIA documents say. 

As per CIA reports and minutes of high-level meetings in Washington on Indo-Pak tensions, it was clear that the US government was readying a strategy should India smash military power of West Pakistan. 

US President Richard Nixon's National Security Adviser Henry A Kissinger discussed various possibilities due to deteriorating Indo-Pak ties in the wake of India's military offensive in East Pakistan. 

However, some top security officials in Washington felt the possibility of India launching a strike on West Pakistan was remote. 

At one of the meetings of Washington's Special Action Group, the then CIA Director Richard Holmes said, "It is reported that prior to terminating the present hostilities, Mrs Gandhi intend…

China bullies 'All-Weather Friend' Pakistan on Coal Power Project

China has bullied its so called 'All-Weather Friend' Pakistan to scale back up a coal-fired power project in Balochistan, Dawn reported.

In November, Pakistan had scaled down its Hub power project - that was to be run on imported coal -from 1,320MW plant to 660MW. This was as part of an overall decision to restrict power plants based on imported fuels. The project is being developed by a consortium of Hub Power Company and China Power International Holding Company at an estimated cost of $2.5 billion, Dawn said.

The companies were not happy with that and "took up the matter at the highest level", Dawn said.

"The Chinese side is reported to have told Pakistan that commercial viability of the Hub power project on supercritical technology was possible only with 1,320MW for which it had also been given tariff by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority on the request of the government of Pakistan," the newspaper said.

The companies also said that a reductio…

In 2002, India's Fighter Jets Hit Pakistan In A Surgical Strike You've Never Been Told About

It was about 2 am on 31 July, 2002. Flight Lieutenant Rajiv Mishra, a 29-year-old fighter pilot, was woken up at his living quarters at the Ambala Air Force Station. Leave for Srinagar immediately with laser designation equipment, he was told. A transport aircraft was ready and waiting at the base.

He didn't know it then, but he had been drafted for one of the most sensitive missions carried out by the Indian Air Force, the details of which had never been revealed to the outside world, until now.

Mishra flew the Jaguar fighter jet of the Indian Air Force. But that night he had not been woken up to fly. The IAF had recently acquired laser guidance systems from Israel. The technology helped fighter pilots to hit targets accurately once the target has been designated on the system. Mishra was regarded a wizard with the new technology.

On board the transporter, Mishra and his two colleagues were briefed by the members of the IAF Strike Cell, the elite frontline strike unit of the force, …

Hindu Cremation, The Next Target For PAK ISI & Ford Foundation Sponcered Environment NGOs & ANTI NATIONAL ELEMENTS to Systematically target HINDUS after #JALLIKATTU

Imran Hussain, the Delhi Environment Minister and AAP leader, has written a letter to the Centre asking for a standardised policy on green crematoria as “cremation alone accounts considerably to air pollution“. In his letter, Hussain said that banning the use of wood in crematoria and switching to electric or CNG mode does not appear to be a tenable solution because of religious beliefs, and mentioned that his Government has tasked CSIR National Environment Engineering Research Institute with the work of creating engineering designs for creating non-polluting crematoria. While steps for controlling environmental pollution are generally laudable, what is interesting is the Minister’s assertion that Hindu cremation using wood pyres contributes ‘considerably’ to air pollution. Most studies on Delhi’s air pollution problem conducted in recent years paint a different picture – A 2011 study commissioned by Union Government found road dust (particulate matter from paved and unpaved roads) an…

India may offer the deadly Brahmos Missile for sale to the UAE

India is not just interested in enhancing trade with the UAE, but is also looking at selling defence equipment during the visit of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to the country.

The Brahmos missile, which was jointly developed between India and Russia, could be offered to the UAE later, Indian External Affairs Ministry officials said.

"There have been talks on the Brahmos missiles, but India will immediately offer only the equipment for which it holds IPR rights," confirmed ministry secretary Amar Sinha.

India Already Has a Strong Net to Catch the New PakNuclear missile 'Ababeel'

Pakistan on Tuesday announced first successful test firing of its new surface-to-surface, nuclear-capable missile Ababeel, with a range of 2,200km. Pakistan military claimed that its new missile can deliver multiple warheads, using Multiple Independent Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) technology.

Ababeel Weapon System is aimed at ensuring survivability of Pakistan’s ballistic missiles in the growing regional Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) environment.

Ababeel test came, just two weeks after Pakistan claimed of conducting the successful test of Submarine Launch Cruise Missile. So what do these rapid missile tests mean for India? Is India prepared to take on these threats? How true are claims made by Pakistan? At least Indian scientific community gives an assuring answer and missile experts take Pakistan's claims with a pinch of salt.

Dr Avinash Chander, former Chief of DRDO and longtime head of India's Ballistic Missile Systems including Agni, in conversation with News18, said that "…

West Bengal governor sends proposal for Azad Hind regiment in Indian Army

Reigniting the 70-year-old controversy over recognition of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose's Azad Hind Fauj or Indian National Army for their contributions to the final leg of the independence movement, West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi on Tuesday forwarded a proposal to defence minister Manohar Parikkar for creation of a new 'Azad Hind' regiment in the Indian Army.

The country celebrated the freedom fighter's 120th birth anniversary on Monday. There are 31 regiments in the Indian Army. The youngest regiment Sikkim Scouts was formed in 2013 and made …

Pakistan Threatens Nuclear War To Stop India’s Cold Start

Pakistan and India are on the brink of nuclear war following India’s plans to deploy 460 high-tech battle tanks along its border with Pakistan. The deployment of the tanks is said to mark the start of implementation of India’s long-hyped Cold Start military strategy.

Pakistan is threatening to use “all of its weapons,” including nuclear weapons, to defend itself against India, according to an anonymous Pakistani official cited by the Financial Times.

“If ever our national security is threatened by advancing foreign forces, Pakistan will use all of its weapons — and I mean all of our weapons — to defend our country.”

Deploying 460 advanced battle tanks along its border with Pakistan would allow India to launch an attack against Pakistan almost immediately.

The Cold Start strategy has been discussed for years, but India has denied its existence at different times. While many of the strategy’s details remain top secret, the main objective is to make India capable of carrying out lightning bl…
