Anonymous, the prominent hacktivists group online, has been quite vigilant in addressing issues such as SOPA and PIPA, given the fact that Anonymous claims to fundamentally believe in freedom of speech. Now, the group has hacked into the servers of Reliance, one of the companies which has actively and greedily sought to block content online to sell it through its own mediums.

Reliance has spear-headed the campaign to block torrents, file sharing websites, YouTube channels and a lot more. All this is being done since Reliance has a huge stake in the entertainment industry in India and wouldn’t want to content to flow out for free via the web. As a result, the company has been blocking different websites and also encouraging other ISPs to do the same.

While that would have sufficed to attract the wrath of Anonymous, the Indian government took a step even further in curbing freedom of speech and blocked the Twitter ID of Anonymous’s group in India. This was the final strike which ignited the issue and within hours, Anonymous hacked into Reliance servers started redirecting users who are trying to access websites to another page where Anonymous has put up a warning to Reliance and Indian government.

The page says that Indian government has a deadline of 24 hours to unblock the Twitter ID and goes on to lambaste Indian opposition and media for being complicit in this attempt to limit freedom of speech. The twitter handle of the blocked account is @OpIndia_Revenge.

Whether or not this may be effective at all remains to be seen since government agencies and companies have a knack of using hacking incidents as an excuse to slap further curbs on freedom of speech.
