New Delhi, June 6 (ANI): Perturbed by hackers attempts to spoil various Hindutva related discussion forums on Orkut, the popular social networking website, the supporters of the Sangh Parivar linked communities have decided to prevent such acts by joining hands.
Presently, the alleged hacked communities include Hinduism, Jai Hanuman, Lakshmi Mata, Veda - sanatan dharma and Lord Shiva.
Many other communities also suffered a similar fate. I hope the present efforts will awaken Orkut towards Hindu sensitivities, said Vivek Chudamani, owner of a revived group with 51,626 members.
But the once affected owners or in-charge of these communities have now decided to use identical display picture showcasing Goddess Durga killing demon King Mahishasura. They hope it would help the members to recognize the group.
Also, all the major communities related to RSS, Hindutva, Nationalist leaders and preachers communities have been requested a change in their main profile picture meant for identification.
The pro-Hindutva communities have decided to hold Orkut Hindu Shakti Vijay Saptah (Victory day for Orkuts Hindutva communities) from June 10 to 17.
“Our main objective behind changing the display pictures is to promote discussions in a more organised and coordinated way and indirectly protest Orkut’s handling of Hindu’s feelings. And, also celebrate the incident of our communities reactivation as a victory day every year now onwards for all Hindus on Orkut,” said Vikas, in-charge of the RSS Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh community (31,785 members).
There are presently several Hindutva related communities existing on Orkut which have over 100,000 members linked to them. (ANI)
