beyond that social media division comes into operation, there To become a Lokpal, where the TV is Lokpal, “said the official.

Order to block pornographic websites, however, faced flak on social media, in which commentators call it Internet censorship.

On July 8, the government had assured the Supreme Court that all possible measures would be taken to block pornographic sites.

After the chair chaired by Chief Justice HL Dattu, the assurance came that there was no sorrow over the fact that things have not progressed and in this case the petitioner was doing all kinds of submissions.

“You have not blocked websites. The petitioner says so,” The bench, including Justice Arun Mishra and Amitav Roy, told Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand.

The Bench had said that no interim order can be passed in this matter, which should be scrutinized after scrutinizing through the counter-affidavit of the Government Department.

The Supreme Court had earlier asked the Secretary DOT to file an affidavit whether the government was able to issue guidelines to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to block the obscene services, especially those showing child pornography.

Service providers had submitted that they themselves can not block such sites and they can do so only towards the government.

It was submitted that the center failed to prepare the mechanism to block such sites and the absence of Internet laws encouraged people to watch pornography and because it was not a crime.

Commenting on the criticism, Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the NDA government was committed towards social media and freedom towards the Internet.

“Some accused said,” I rejected the charge that it is a Taliban government. Our government supports free media, respects communication on social media and always respects freedom of communication.

The minister said, “My government is committed to freedom on social media and communication on the Internet.”

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma had criticized the ban on pornographic websites in India in a series of tweets.

Calling the move “oppressive”, Verma tweeted that “Poliben and Iesis are equal to what is doing for free, which is to deprive the adults of seemingly harmful adults”.
