What actually happened! Is it a propaganda?

After publishing about BJP.org not honouring our licence we started receiving mixed responses some of them are below

“Propaganda at a very small level. Free things are not to be given credit”

“Your template price is less than a average BJP workers chappal price”

“Your template price is less than the toilet paper roll”

“This BJP gives more money to beggars every minute than the price of your template.”

So, this blog is for them who think we are running a propaganda. BJP’s official ​site has been down​ for a while. For whatever reasons. we were happy to see that they were back. Especially that they chose to use one of W3Layout’s Template.

It was bought to our notice by @ashishdevziners on twitter

We, at W3Layouts, were initially happy and excited that BJP IT cell was using our template, then devastated to see our work being used by BJP removing the backlink without paying, and giving no credit whatsoever to W3Layouts.

The exciting moments for team w3layouts

While the visible backlinks were removed, it was clear that BJP was still using the W3Layouts code as it was evident in the source code of the page.

We took the issue to BJP’s notice through twitter as we are not able to find the communication details of BJP’s IT team who handles bjp.org

No reply from @BJP4India or BJP’s IT team

We didn’t receive any reply – neither from their official twitter handle, nor from their IT Team. After 4 hours of the initial tweet, they added w3layouts to the footer, and were changing it every few minutes.

Meanwhile cleaning the css and other places where ever w3layouts is mentioned. But w3layouts author information is cached in archive.org

After pointing to http://web.archive.org/web/20190321170253cs_/http://www.bjp.org/css/style.css we don’t know what happened they removed everything that belonged to w3layouts from the website and decided to spoil the good looking webpage by removing our code.

Is it that difficult to acknowledge someone’s work?

    Acknowledging the hard work and design is very much necessary for the freemium model to survive.
    The DA weight of a backlink from a website as heavy as BJP.org would be really massive for you guys.

    But, I think the website maintenance would have been outsourced and not managed directly by BJP.

    They believe in outsourcing everything from education to healthcare.
    Lately, they’ve also started to show some anti-science symptoms in their narrative.
