The unidentified hackers, suspected to be based overseas, posted two pictures and a video, and changed the name of Akbaruddin's twitter account from @AkbaruddinIndia to @AkbaruddinSyed.
The account was later restored by the micro-blogging site which also launched a probe.
Akbaruddin thanked twitter and said that it would take more than a hack to keep him down.
Netizens noticed the cyber attack and retweeted the two photos and the video posted from Akbaruddin's hacked account.
One picture was of Pakistan's President Mamnoon Hussain and the other one showed the flags of Turkey and Pakistan.
The video song of Bollywood actor Raj Kapoor's "Awara Hoon" was also posted by the hackers.
