Sucks If You Live In India Because The Entire Country Just Banned ALL Porn Sites
Technically speaking, India is the world’s oldest democracy. BUT, things aren’t going so hot in the sub-continent for people who want the basic human freedom of watching pornography on the Internet. Over the weekend, many Bros in India hit social media to complain about how the government had implemented a porn ban. Like this poor dude, who hit us up on Saturday on Facebook
“Certain websites have been reviewed and found to be spreading anti-social activities as hyperlinks from these websites, some of them were pornographic, so we have sent letters to internet service providers to block them. The action has been taken in reference to section 79 of IT Act,” the sources said.
Information technology secretary RS Sharma told HT that the ministry “followed court directives,” a reference to an ongoing case in the Supreme Court against adult websites.
Hear that, Bros? India considers your porn habit “anti-social activities.” N.N. Kaul, a spokesman for India’s department of telecommunications, fired off this comment to Reuters about taking down porn in India:
“Free and open access to porn websites has been brought under check. We don’t want them to become a social nuisance.”
Religion divides men Porn unites them #PornBan

Porn ban is anti-freedom, impractical, not enforceable. Politically not very smart too. avoidable. Let’s not manage people’s private lives.
