The entire controversy over the porn websites blocked by the government is an extremely exasperating topic to explain, for the big reason that most people do not know the full facts, and hence the entire issue got really messed up.

For starters, all one could hear on social media was that “porn has been banned”. No, my friend, porn has not been banned, a few porn SITES have been banned. Let me give you a few stats here. Out of the million most popular (trafficked) websites, 42,337 have pornographic content. The government banned 857. I might be wrong, but that does not constitute as “banning porn”. It is like taking a glass of water from the ocean.
The Department of Telecom was directed to block the 857 websites by the Centre in an attempt to curb child pornography, due to a 2013 petition filed by an Indore-based advocate and had taken into consideration the list of websites he has provided. But for some reason, this list contained websites which had nothing to do with porn at all! CollegeHumour.com and 9gag.comwere in them. They were probably in the list because the petitioner didn’t like what he saw on them, and our government couldn’t be bothered to check the list, because why should they take the effort?

Instead of taking steps to curb child porn from ever being filmed, the government just banned a few sites, like that would help. This is an indication that the government was not serious about the issue and only banned them to comply with the Supreme Court. It is rather like giving a person with AIDS a Crocin.

That was where the government went wrong. But they weren’t the only guilty party here. Social media exploded! How dare the government ban their precious websites where most videos show women as sex objects?! Blasphemous! While it was the right thing to protest against such a ban, the vehemence behind it was a bit too much. A tiny fraction of sites were banned, and everyone went crazy. Without the proper knowledge and information, many users openly stated their views on something they knew nothing about. If social media was more vehement of the deadlock in parliament which causes irreparable damage to the country, or about the one rank one pension scheme, maybe some real good could be done.
