Telangana Government to block Pornographic Websites

Viewing pornographic content has been decided as one of the contributors to the crime against women by the special committee constituted by Telangana CM KCR. With such a strong recommendation, the telangana government has taken a stand to block all the obscene material freely available on the Internet. CID was given the job of identifying the porn stuffed websites and Facebook accounts a couple of weeks back.

After some extensive research, CID has come up with a list of 1500 websites and 5000 Facebook Pages that’s promoting explicit content and submitted the report to Home Ministry department of Telangana. As the Internet Service Providers need a clear directive from DoT [Dept of Telecommunication] to ban a particular site, Home Minister Naayini Narasimha Reddy has forwarded the extensive list to Central Government on behalf of Telangana government.

Though there were many cases/recommendations like these recorded in the past, the ban wasn’t imposed until now. We need to see if Telangana government can succeed in doing so.
