857 Porn Websites Banned In India: Internet Outraged

0

Can you stop an adult from exercising his fundamental right to personal liberty to watch porn within the privacy of his room? In India, world’s largest democracy, you can.

On July 31, the Indian government took a dangerous misstep towards hurting the freedom of the Internet and asked all Internet services providers to block access to 857 pornography websites under the provision of Section 79(3)(b) of the Information Technology Act, 2000, as the content hosted on the websites it considered pornographic relates to morality and decency as given in Article 19 (2) of the Constitution of India.

This comes after the Supreme Court refused to order a ban on pornographic websites saying such an order would impinge on freedom. In his petition, Kamlesh Vasvani, the lawyer who prepared the list but failed to persuade the Supreme Court to block online pornography, had said, “Nothing can more efficiently destroy a person, fizzle their mind, evaporate their future, eliminate their potential or destroy society like pornography. It is worse than Hitler, worse than AIDS, cancer or any other epidemic. It is more catastrophic than nuclear holocaust, and it must be stopped.”

His draconian demand was rejected by the judiciary, but the Indian government acted upon it in no time. The ‘blue’ films on the Internet did not face the judicial axe because ‘eroticism is a personal choice’ but the current arbitrary order, that came without any warning or explanation, has left the citizens in splits.
