On weekend, the buzz was around how certain Internet service providers had begun blocking some porn sites. It has now arised that the government had sent orders to ISPs to block over 850 porn websites.

Naming a source associated to the matter, The HotGossips report states, “The telecom department sent an order to block 857 sites late on Friday. That is possibly why only few ISPs have blocked these over the weekend.” And, here’s a new ‘ban’.

The report also adds that ‘the industry was not completely willing to support the govt to block porn until it comes up with clearer clarifications around what can be blocked and what can not’.

Users of BSNL, MTNL and ACT broadband have claimed that porn sites aren’t opening on their devices whereas Mts, Tata Photon, Airtel and cable internet users are not facing any such issues. According to Legally India, on one of Delhi’s broadband providers Spectranet, 11 out of the world’s 13 most popular porn sites were inaccessible.

When we attempted verifying it on an MTNL Mumbai connection and popular sites such as Pornhub and Youporn would not open. It seemed like the service provider had blocked sites with phrases such as ‘porn’ in its title.

Court orders

“The conference of the Cyber Regulation Advisory Committee was triggered by a directive from the Supreme Court, which is hearing a petition by a lawyer seeking to ban porn as it leads to “activities like harassment, rape, molestations of women”,” the report further adds. On July 8, the matter came up before a bench headed by the Chief Justice.

According to a Supreme Court order, adults watching porn in the limits of their home is not a crime. In fact Chief Justice HL Dattu has even headed to the degree to say that it violates the Right to Personal Liberty.
