As reactions to the government’s move to block porn sites rose to a crescendo, top communications ministry officials said it was merely meant to comply with the Supreme Court’s observations and not to curtail internet freedom.

“We are not a control-freak government and strongly object to the word Talibanisation,” communications minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said. “On the contrary, we are pushing for higher levels of internet use through Digital India.”
