Center Government retracts porn ban

Sharing is caring!

After a major turmoil and insistence from a majority of opposition parties,celebrities, socialites, students,youngsters  regarding the obstruction of 857 pornographic websites, the central government has made  a smart move of reviewing its measures and decided on partially lifting up  the ban on sites that didn’t have pornographic content but were still banned.

The Union Minister of Telecom Ravi Shankar Prasad immediately reacted and held a high-level review meeting that decided on directing the ISPs to unblock the sites which only published erotic jokes and memes, like 9GAG, Playboy etc. However, websites containing child pornography may still be blocked until the court hearing.

The minister further added that the initial decision of ban was mainly because of the Supreme Court’s instructions to the Telecom Ministry to  act  on a lengthy list of porn sites given by a petitioner.
