The hackers of the Sindh Investment Board website have demanded the government to close schools, as per a message displayed on the website.
As per the available reports, a note posted on the site reads “This is a warning message to Pakistan Government,” and it further added “Student Lives are no joke! Shut the Schools down now.”
The message appears to have something to do with the government’s verdict to keep educational institutions throughout Pakistan open amid the second wave of coronavirus infections in the country.
The virus has so far claimed 2,760 lives in the province of Sindh while the number of active cases in the province stands at 11,020.
But the provincial government has not made any decision to shut down the educational institutions. The government, after discussing the matter in its steering committee meeting on Tuesday, recommended that winter holidays should not be given at all this year.
“Students have already lost on a lot of education due to the coronavirus lockdown and can’t afford more losses,” the Sindh education ministry said.
The matter will further be discussed in the meeting of the National Command and Operation Centre on November 23, it added.
