Indian Government Blocks Over 800 Porn Websites

Indian Government Blocks Over 800 Porn Websites

Browse This Page

A directive had been passed, late Friday evening, blocking around 800 porn websites. Although, the effect of this legislation may not have taken place all over the country, it is said to become active in a couple of days.

So now when one tries to access a particular porn website, an error message will show, suggesting that the Indian government had asked the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to block the site. This is the result of a PIL that is being held in the Supreme Court asking the government to block citizens from accessing pornography  on the internet. In November, the government asked the Internet And Mobile Association of India to curate a list of pornography websites that could be passed on to ISPs.

The list is reported to contain over 800 websites and has been handed over to ISPs by the government under Section 79 of Information Technology Act. The act is in relation to intermediaries and cases where they are involved in its transmission. Chief Justice HL Dattu, had said “Such interim orders cannot be passed by this court. Somebody may come to the court and say look I am above 18 and how can you stop me from watching it within the four walls of my room. It is a violation of Article 21 [right to personal liberty],” while asking the government to come up with a reply within four weeks.

While this move might seem slightly controversial, and dare we say, bordering on interference from the government in personal matters, it is said that one could still access the websites using VPN or proxies. Moreover, the blockade is on the URLs, so the websites could themselves resurface under a different URL.

Let us know what you think about this legislation.

  • Nirav Khandhadia

    how come boys watching ‘somehow’ increases their desperation and girls watching porn ‘never’ increases their desperation? By the way Mr. Born To Rule – Do you even know that girls also watch porn?

  • Praful Baweja

    I followed the whole trail and could not really put a finger on …. What exactly is ticking me off in this conversation… But wham… The last comment by Mr. Born to fight just revealed it…. Chauvinism and holier than thou tone…. Slow claps and some gel for your burns Dorothy!!

  • Born To Rule

    If u really have a mind to understand get ur facts right when boys watch porn somehow their desperation increase and some of sick minded uncontrollable idiots commit crimes like sexual abuse rapes stuff like that, and when it comes to children many of the teenagers wat h porn and coz of immaturity they go n do such things n destroy their future by taking such steps .. commenting on posts and living a practical life is way different defending porn is like u people deserve what’s happening in India.. when i see women defending i feel more surprised how ruinned ur minds and cultures are now!

  • Shakun Saini Ganguli

    Born To Rule, please show me a correlation between porn and crimes against women. Valid figures. And then show me a correlation between children watching cartoons and violence. And then talk about what should be banned and what should be allowed to stay.

  • Nirav Khandhadia

    Ban Education… kya faayda itna padhai karne ka, if we have to see such days!!

  • Parminder Singh

    That’s good very good

  • Born To Rule

    It’s better be banned for the youth and for the future of every indian women because illiterate people of india take it as the desperation of their sexual needs and take it out on innocent lives!

  • Anuj Khatri

    soon CD rental shops will open again in ur neighborhood ;)

  • Shakun Saini Ganguli

    Ban video games too. People might start shooting everyone and stealing cars :P
    #RIPLogic

  • Nirav Khandhadia

    Porn doesnt make anyone desperate…. You think Rapists rape by seeing porn? They might not even have access to the porn you and I are having.. Their minds are filled with filth and dirt… which cannot be cleaned with the moral science lecture not banning porn….
    the point is against the ban… Ban against anything and everything in the name of #moralscience…
    #10BansBeforeIDie – Ban Nonsense daily soaps, Ban Godmen, Ban the sexual abusers and throw out, Ban dishonesty, Ban Chutiyapa….!!

  • Shakun Saini Ganguli

    And yes, the Indra – Ahalya story is something that people need to remember and keep quiet about sanskriti. It is the dirtiest, most misogynistic story ever!

  • govardhanmane

    igyaan its a good move considering the fact that our females will be safer from blackmailing, so any who oppose shud reconsider.

  • Shakun Saini Ganguli

    The current government takes complete advantage of fools who don’t look beyond the obvious and just want to give moral sermons.
    Don’t you see that what the government has done is unconstitutional? The Supreme Court’s word is above all and the so-called “protectors” did not respect the law of the country.
    “You are defending porn”. No one is defending porn. We’re against nonsensical bans. Now the government will barge into people’s homes and tell them what to do.
    And don’t forget – The Government did something that is technically against the law and rights that the constitution gives the citizens of this country.

  • Saharsh Damani

    Irony is when your country bans porn sites under the section which has 69 in it. #Section69A !

  • Nafis Saiyad

  • Born To Rule

    U r defending porn as if u can’t pass a night without it shouldn’t act so desperately and respect the decision of ur protectors! They have taken this decision for aome betterment.

  • Shakun Saini Ganguli
