PORN sites are blocked by Indian government on grounds of morality and obscenity ??

Hello,

The same country that launched a successful Mars mission a year ago - displaying a phenomenal understanding of rocket science - has just tried to ban porn.

It's frankly mind-boggling.

Not because it's regressive - which it is. Not because it's illegal - which it also seems to be. Not even because it was underhand - because that's rapidly the style of governance we're coming to expect.

But because it displays a fundamental ignorance of both, what porn is and how the internet works.

I'm not particularly worried for porn - for as long as sex has existed, so has some version of pornography. It'll survive.

And in India, data shows, it doesn't just survive, it thrives.

When Pornhub, the world's largest porn site, released India stats earlier this year, it blew the 'Indian culture' myth out of the water. India is fifth on the list of Pornhub's user base, and 25% of Indian visitors to the site are women.

But this latest attempt - which involves banning 857 sites - is not just ill-conceived, it's straight-out untenable.

The reality is that porn is incredibly complex, and the technology that powers the internet even more so.


I'm really interested to know how the Govt. will track mobile devices & also will it ban or block 50 Shades of Grey or not?

Many people upon hearing the news first went online & then checked if their favorite sites are banned or not! LOL!!

Indians are the 5th largest population to consume the Porn content according to sources & then again a question remains about the freedom of user on Internet.

There are mixed reactions & comments from the public & women I think will be happy with this decision.

My personal view is we shouldn't ban Porn we need more people vigilant & watchful against people who molest, rape or intentionally hurt women. Get those bastards out of the society.

Well let me know what you guys feel! Do you support the Govt or not?
Please do leave your comments & let me know.
