In a recent spin, the Indian government has decided to play big boss in the Internet zone. The government is attempting to ban the availability of porn websites, particularly child porn, for the Indian audience.
According to a report on The Economic Times, the government has asked Internet and Mobile Association of India to curate a list of pornography websites, and further provide that to the Internet service providers, to be blocked. Further, the Internet service providers have also been asked to ensure that the process of blocking the websites does not hamper the speed of the Internet.
The report also states that, at a meeting attended by Telecom & IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad and other government officials, the issue of pornography was discussed, where Ravi Shankar Prasad said that, although porn is legal in other countries, it’s a moral obligation to block it considering the Indian culture and values.
The government has not yet confirmed the date of ban, however, the process has probably started a while back, as it was reported that a few Internet service providers have already started blocking a number of porn sites and torrent-based websites.
