Supreme Court Says ‘NO’ To Government: Porn Sites Can’t Be Banned!

Updated on 5 September, 2017 at 4:19 pm By

Indians can either thank their lucky stars or the Supreme Court because it has passed an order stating that porn websites cannot be banned in India, reports Indiatimes.

In response to a PIL petition filed by advocate Kamlesh Vashwani to block porn websites in India, the Central Government told the Supreme Court that it would take all possible measures to do so. But the Supreme Court declined saying:

“Such interim orders cannot be passed by this court. Somebody may come to the court and say look I am above 18 and how can you stop me from watching it within the four walls of my room. It is a violation of Article 21 [right to personal liberty].”

The petitioner argued that watching pornography fuels crimes against women. The PIL said:

“The sexual content that kids are accessing today is far more graphic, violent, brutal, deviant and destructive and has put entire society in danger, so also safety threats to public order in India. The petitioner most respectfully submits that most of the offences committed against women/girls/children are fuelled by pornography. The worrying issue is the severity and gravity of the images are increasing. It is a matter of serious concern that pre-pubescent children are being raped.”



 

As a matter of fact, it’s really hard to ban porn sites in India. Vashvani, who filed the PIL, pointed out that there are 4 crore porn sites in India. It is also hard to locate and shut down these sites, as they protect themselves with state of the art technology and use international servers.
