Porn Ban in India

Porn banned in India

Customers of MTNL and Hathway in Mumbai are greeted by a blank page when visiting websites like Youporn and Pornhub, but websites seem to be loading just fine on Airtel in Delhi.

“11 out of these top 13 porn sites showing blank pages here on Spectranet in Delhi,” wrote one Reddit user. MTNL users on the same thread report conflicting versions, with some saying websites have been blocked, and others contradicting that statement.

Some users of other ISPs like BSNL and ACT Broadband are also reporting blocks, with many saying they are greeted by the message “This site has been blocked as per the instruction of the competent authority” when visiting popular porn websites.

There has been talk of banning porn websites in the country, but the Supreme Court recently declined a plea to pass an interim order to block porn websites in India.

“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],” Chief Justice H.L. Dattu reportedly said last month.

The Chief Justice had asked the government to reply within four weeks.

We did our own search and found out that Desi hosted sites have not been banned. Porn Industry does a business of $14 Billion dollar in revenues world wide and most of the porn Industry gets its traffic from India according to ALEXA. Are we taking Make in India too seriously.

 

Porn can not be banned. Even it is blocked from the internet it will be sourced from other sources which will encourage illegal activities. With the ban on porn, politicians will have nothing else to do in parliament and attendance might fall.

If you are Above 18 and stand for protection of your freedom #unbanporn on social media.
