A week ago, on 5 March, the BJP’s official website was hacked. There was a meme featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi whose caption reads “Brothers and sisters, I've fooled all of you. Brothers and sisters, we’ve fooled all of you. More to come! Many, many congratulations!”
Below the meme was a video with the song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.
Soon after, the website was shut down for maintenance. It has been more than six days now, and the website hasn’t whirred back into action yet. And Tweeple couldn’t resist poking fun at the party for not being able to restore the website.
“Will the mandir be made first or the website,” asked one Twitter user.

Some used one of BJP’s favourite catchphrases – ‘How’s the Josh’ – to make fun of the situation.

BJP Website: Down, Sir.
BJP is trying to get back both ‘achhe din’ and its website, said another Twitter user.

Is this Digital India?
Some quoted the BJP’s claims of ‘digital india’, and pointed out the irony of the situation.

Doesn't reflect well on #DigitalIndia 's capabilities to resist security threats and get up and running in a timely manner that the official BJP website is still down nearly 24 hours after being hacked. Why is it taking this long? pic.twitter.com/K4xK8LIulq— Rupa Subramanya (@rupasubramanya) March 6, 2019
The website of the BJP was taken offline on Feb 5 after hackers defaced the site. More than a week has passed and it is still offline. Isn't it embarrassing for a party which propagate Digitial India but is without a website for more than a week that too in the Election Time?— Ravidev (@Ravidevt) March 12, 2019
Blame It On Nehru
Did Nehru do it, joked Tweeple, likely taking a dig at BJP’s tendency to blame Nehru for the problems India faces today.

‘Country Is In Safe Hands’
How can you protect the country, when you cannot restore your own website, Twitter asked.
BJP website was hacked, meme making fun of Modi was posted. 3 days have passed, it has not been able to be back. Rumor is all data have been erased including sensitive info about donors. Bigots can't protect their own website, they claim to be good at protecting the country. pic.twitter.com/5updl6ZB1A— Ashok Swain (@ashoswai) March 7, 2019

BJP can’t fix a damn website and they want us to believe that they can fix the nation.
