The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) said it has received a communication from Pakistan’s Telecommunication Authority (PTA) Web Analysis Division, demanding that it take down the “Bengali Hindu Genocide” web page, which captures a variety of
perspectives on the genocidal actions of then West Pakistan’s (now modern Pakistan) military, “within (24) hours”.

The letter also states that the government of Pakistan will “remove or block” access to HAF’s”Bengali Hindu Genocide” web page in Pakistan. This nearly-10-month genocidal campaign left two-three million people dead, 200,000-400,000 women raped and more than 10 million people displaced — a majority of whom were Hindus, the HAF said in a statement.

“Your website is involved in the dissemination of content with the intent to ridicule, defame the armed forces of Pakistan in order to provoke anti-state sentiments, cause disharmony, feelings of enmity among masses at large, which is prejudicial to the
integrity, sovereignty, and security of Pakistan,” said the communication from Pakistan.

However The HAF has refused to take down the site.

There is no statement issued by Indian Government over the attack by Pakistan government yet.
