    Block Access To Porn Websites. Govt Issues Directive To ISPs! #PornBan
    Posted by: Mohul Ghosh in Internet November 11, 2014 0


    Indian Government is now determined to ban all types of pornography websites in India. They have asked various Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to create a blueprint, upgrade their infrastructure and implement a nation-wide ban on porn related websites.

    As per the report by ET, they have also asked Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) for assistance.
    The government has proposed a comprehensive anti-porn plan:
    Step 1: Identify all pornographic websites which are currently accessible in India, especially those dealing with child pornography.
    Step 2: Ensure mass blocking of these websites, directly from ISP’s end.
    Step 3: ISPs should ensure that such large scale blocking doesn’t slow down the Internet, as it happened in the past.
    In a closed door meeting in September, chaired by Telecom & IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and attended by important officials from ministry, the ‘porn problem’ was discussed in length, and strategies were formulated to implement this nation-wide ban on pornography websites.
    Ravi Shankar was quoted as saying that although porn is legal in other countries, this issue should be observed in the “context of Indian culture and moral obligation towards society”.
    In the month of June this year, Internet Service Providers Association of India (ISPAI) had informed the Supreme Court that they are not able to ban pornography websites, without any legal or infrastructural support from the government.
    In their affidavit, they had stated, “It is impossible for an ISP to block pornographic sites without orders from the court or department of telecom (DoT). While ISPs are legally bound to comply with all orders to block pornographic or other websites as suggested by DoT, the task of identifying such websites ought not to be left to ISPs who lack institutional and logistical capacity to do the identification.”
    The Supreme Court has asked the Department of Telecom to file its reply. The latest round of meetings and creation of blueprint is with regards to the same directives as issued by Supreme Court. It is expected that the Government will come out with a concrete policy governing the access of porn by the end of this month.
    The main contention and reasoning behind this ban is the fear that porn promotes and encourages sexual violence against women; porn is a bad influence on young boys; and our culture and tradition is threatened.
    The Political Angle
    BJP, the party which has absolute powers at the center, and is considered to be close to Hindu organizations such as RSS and Bajrang Dal, has also proposed a complete ban on porn in India.
    As per reports, Arvind Gupta, head of BJP’s information technology cell was also present in the meeting, and he quoted: “A solution may need to be worked out to prevent availability of pornography on the Internet considering the cultural sensitivities of the country,”
    BJP is known to take a hard stand on issues which is considered ‘western’ and ‘anti-India’, and the latest diktat from the political party to the Government is being seen as an extension of this propaganda.

    The news reporters headline is wrong, Porn is fine but there are some objectionable content in porn like violent, child, bestiality etc...etc...,

    These sites needs to be blocked, almost every nation blocks these things and India also does this in the past, Nothing new.

    I have no idea why these guys are again asking to block, the measures are already there !!

    Country of Kamasutra banning porn, is this protest against the bad quality of western porn? What's next? Russia banning vodka? Finland banning sauna?

    That will be a hugely regressive step.

    Not a single developed country has banned Pornography.

    Actually India is not only economically backward but in openess of culture too.

    If they are indeed thinking of outright "banning" porn, they are morons. They need a kick up their backside for wasting time, money and resources on trying to ban things which are "un-bannable".

    I hope they stick to banning only certain categories like child pornography etc.

    BJP would lose a big chunk of voter base(might lose next elections as well) if they chose to ban porn as a whole. :lol:

    Raul Vinci would come with an agenda "We would allow Porn" and get the voter base which BJP would lose. :taunt:

    There would be 100 times more Tharki's on the street if there is a blanket ban on porn.
