Update 2: Rahul Roushan, editor Faking News, explains why he thinks narendramodiplans.com's motives seem suspect.
Update: The narendramodiplans.com domain name now leads to a 404 GitHub page. In an email response to IBNLive, the creator of the website declined to elaborate upon the reasons behind taking down the site and emphasised that he/she "would want to stay out of this issue once and for all" and that he/she had "already removed the 'quit' note on the site."
"I quit. In a country with freedom of speech, I assumed that I am allowed to make decent satire on any politician more particularly if its constructive. Clearly, I was wrong," the statement says.
It is not clear what exactly led to the content being taken down.
IBNLive is yet to receive a response to the questions put to the website's owner.
Meanwhile Twitter is abuzz with conspiracy theories. Some see it as a Congress conspiracy to defame Modi and his supporters while others believe that Modi fans should develop a sense of humour.
The before the content was taken down the website had above an image of a smiling Narendra Modi displaying the victory symbol the following text: "For a detailed explanation of how Mr Narendra Modi plans to run the nation if elected to the house as a Prime Minister and also for his view/perspective on 2002 riots please click the link below."
