PORN SITES BLOCKED IN INDIA.

It was quite disappointing to customers of several porn sites in India on waking up to access Internet pages over the weekend only to find that they are unavailable, apparently following a request from the Indian government. According to statistics released by ONE adult porn site, India was its fourth largest source of traffic in 2014, behind the US, UK and Canada.

These are not easy decisions to be made by any authority, but India has as we speak banned porn, ordering internet companies to turn off access to adult websites, dating pages and pornographic blogs.

The ban includes 857 sites, according to local reports that cited telecoms companies. The full list has been posted online by the Centre for Internet & Society, in a document that many have pointed out is a hugely comprehensive list of many of the most popular porn sites.

A senior official, who preferred to remained unnamed, told the BBC Hindi that India’s department of telecommunications had “advised” telecom operators and Internet service providers to “control free and open access” to the 857 porn sites.

“There is no total ban. This was done in the backdrop of Supreme Court’s observation on children having free access to porn sites. The idea is also to protect India’s cultural fabric. This will not prevent adults from visiting porn sites,” the official said.

It is a temporary arrangement. The telecommunications depart will eventually come up with a long term policy [of controlling access] to these sites later,” he said.
