Ban Illegal Porn Websites in India

Respected Shri Ravi Shankar Prasad - Telecom Minister India
& Shri Venkaiah Naidu - Information & Broadcasting Minister India,

I would like to appeal to you to kindly ban websites propagating "illegal porn" in India. "Illegal porn" by definition is the private content of individuals who are not directly part of this industry but have been sabotaged either by miffed ex-lovers, sexual violators or by hackers without the consent of the individual (woman in most cases and children in growing no. of cases) in subject. The category of "illegal porn" includes but is not limited to the category of "revenge porn" and "child porn" which have been a globally growing concern as more and more people across the world get easy & loose access to creating and publishing content in the broadly unchecked world of porn.

I understand that porn has been educational to many sections of India, who had not understood the subject of sex for it being a topic of taboo even till date in India. But in providing unchecked access to these platforms that freely publish illegal porn, we as a country are creating a safe haven for miscreants to misuse these platforms for humiliating, sexually violating and blackmailing individuals (woman in most cases and children in growing no. of cases) who haven't given consent for such materials of private media to be made publicly accessible online or anywhere.

I also understand that its going to be difficult step as there are many vocalists who are against such a ban in the name of 'freedom from censorship', 'right to private entertainment' etc. But if you do consider this small suggestion / request of mine seriously, you will be able to walk on the middle path of doing the right thing by adding filters / regulations to this whole un-checked industry of porn, banning all those websites that don't follow the stipulated norms and there by creating an environment where there's no threat to an individual in any form of exploitation, humiliation or blackmailing via these mediums.

I think if we really want to be responsible a country to our citizens we really need to breed out the evil by taking conscious and difficult steps. Kindly consider this small plea.

P.S - To all those who are signing and supporting my small little plea, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I trust that its because of people like you this world will soon be a better place to live in.

Regards,
Manish D
