Jay Hind TV, an Indian online stand-up comedy show’s website
JayHind.tv was hacked by anti-India fundamentalists. The website went down last
night after an attack by ‘Free Kashmir’ Islamic fundamentalists who killed the
original show links and posted their own subversive messages and pictures on
the site’s homepage. The website is back live. The show is produced by
Undercover Productions and was launched in partnership with BuzzInTown in
September 2009.

Speaking about the incident, Abhigyan Jha, creator and
director, Jay Hind, and founder and CEO of Undercover Productions, said,
“Jay Hind is uniquely scripted, uncensored and has an unabashed humorous
take on fundamentalism of all kinds, across the board. Although this has been a
major factor in its unparalleled success, we were getting some threatening
messages over the last few months. We also recently enhanced the format of the
show with one episode each month being completely in English. This
International edition called BLTN caters to our global audience and could have
probably triggered this attack.”

Sumeet Raghavan, the host of the show, said,
“It’s unfortunate that people find a way of bringing negativity even in
something which is intended to make people laugh. We will continue our efforts
to add humour to the lives of our fans across the world.”
