A number of the most popular sites in the world are ordered to censor themselves of all material that is considered offensive to Indians by February 2012. The list of the online services include such giants as Microsoft, Facebook, YouTube, Google, and 20 more – they will have to remove all objectionable content. That is considering the fact that a number of the online scandals which have hit the country recently include all pictures of women kissing men.
According to the press reports, over 20 social networking services, including the most popular ones throughout the world, have been issued summons by the Indian court, on grounds of containing objectionable material. The websites are currently charged with section 292 (which is sale of obscene books), section 293 (which is sale of obscene objects to young person), and even 120-B (which is criminal conspiracy) of the IPC.
Apparently, the court order follows a complaint to the court made by some private citizen who went online and discovered that the web didn’t comply with an Indian ideal of a moral society. In case such websites fail to clear offensive material off their sites by February 2012, they would be accused of contempt of court.
A statement from the court claims that the judge had been deeply shocked by what was presented amongst the evidence to the court. He ruled that unknown individuals were selling, publicly exhibiting and distributing obscene, lascivious material, which also appeared to the prurient interests and tended to deprave and corrupt the citizens who might read, see or hear it. He added that it was also evident that such material is continuously openly and freely available to any person using the above mentioned network, regardless of their age – indeed, even underage people have full and uncensored access to such obscene material.
As a result, all the well-known names will either have to censor the web or leave the lucrative Indian online market. When facing such choice, the companies are likely to choose the first option. Meanwhile, the industry experts believe that the businesses won’t find much support from local politicians either, because the Indian government is known to be furious that its citizens are able to go online and tell bad things about the Gandhi family.

|probably then half the advertisements have to be taken down as well. All you find in the advertisements are nothing more than obscene content (which of course I don't mind :p)|

|i can only hope the block everything that comes out of there most is utaly crap anyway|
|No matter what the press says, or the article here, Indian democracy has always been the winner for what the people want. There was a similar hue and cry last year(2011) about Blackberry being banned by Indian government, when the actual reason was that Indian govt had only asked for helping them track the encoded mails that could be misused by the wrong elements. India also has been extremely open in allowing all kinds of content on the internet without any censorship until now. The reason given here in this article that women kissing men photos is an issue, is completely nonsense and baseless, seems to have been picked up from some naive blog article. What is being asked of Facebook and the likes to not allow anti-social messages by whatever types of fundamentalist groups targetting India on the web. Request to extratorrent for not allowing such baseless articles, which is more of gossip spreading. Thanks.|

|i like indian government (congress), as they've done a lot, but still this step is bull crap.|
Anyways we don't want more Anna Hazare - hate him
The picture I consider with this article showing a guy jumping around in his BVD's with a nut-sack bulge and azz curlys springing out all over Obscene..
urp I just hurled...
Jeez their powers to be are just as stupid as the other countries powers to be so they can sukmukdik....LMFAO..
greymongel - ur correct and I am very very sure allot of us don't watch Bollywood movies for those dance scenes; of course some of them are very very interesting though..
Those Bollywood eyes you can just fall into; those Bollywood heaving bosoms sweating and straining against seductive and erotic clothing, Bollywood satin skin and plump full lips with glistening white teeth tantalizing nipped with playful teeth.......
Yet they don't have a problem showing murder and mayhem on anything called media. So fondling a breast is banned; yet cutting it off with a chainsaw IS OKAY?
|Wow a country that allows Child Porn... Is Complaining....|
My NEW dream in life is to Go slaughter an INDIAN cow and make Hamburgers Infront of their Lame Imbreeding Ruling Family...
|good move.i appreciate it but lets see how much they can do ..actually in every sec.lots of stuff uploaded on the net so to Censor all will be a really difficult job.|
