Just days after revelation that India ranks third on the list porn watchers from all around the world, India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has made a shocking disclosure that Indian men are fuelling violent porn in cyber space.

The shocking news came to light this Thursday when India’s top police agency, filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court stating that Indian men were behind the surge in pornography on the web.

 

According to reports, the CBI also said that the reason behind a surge in violent porn sites in cyberspace was due to the domineering male population’s “insatiable lust” and “penchant for salacious material, including violence against women”.

In their affidavit, the CBI stated that rape and gang-rape represent the “oldest and longest continuing instances of a criminal man’s inhumanity on woman”.

“Committing such abhorrent crimes, recording them and disseminating them across the world through Internet-enabled media serve to titillate and indirectly embolden other males to commit such heinous crimes.”

The CBI pointed out that such things not only aggravate the misery of victims but also “endanger and threaten” the safety of women and children.

The affidavit was filed in response to a PIL by NGO Prajwala, which had asked about violent porn in Indian cyberspace.

The CBI further added in the affidavit:

“The cyber-porn invasion of Indian cyber ecosystem is also on account of the huge market potential carried by a large population like India.”

The CBI then went on to contend that a central law enforcement authority in India needs to be given powers as soon as possible, so as to investigate and prosecute all cyber crimes.

 

They said that the move would also help safeguard young women and children. The affidavit then went on to blame rapid urbanisation as one of the reasons behind the surge in cyber crimes.

The CBI said that rampant proliferation of such crimes can be correlated to the ubiquity of Internet-enabled pornography and rapid urbanisation that has led to disconnected lives of youth which has produced a complex social crisis.
