BJP blocks its website access in Pakistan
ISLAMABAD: People in Pakistan cannot access the India's hard-line conservative political party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)'s website as the saffron party has blocked its Internet page though its high-profile Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's portal can be accessed for those who want to know about him.
According to Indian media, "Error 1009 The owner of this website (bjp.Org) has banned your IP address (—) on the country or region you are accessing it from," says the page as one logs in from here.
People logging in from Pakistan have to use Virtual Private Network, masking Pakistani IP address to log into the BJP website.
The party had attached on its Twitter handle links to a 'charge sheet' it had recently released against the UPA government but the links did not work for those logging in from Pakistan.
Some questioned the logic of blocking the access saying even if someone fears hacking, hackers don't use their own IP addresses.
