The Centre's quiet act of banning an online soft-porn Indian comic strip has left fans fuming.
The Department of Telecommunications asked all Indian Internet Service Providers (ISP) to block access to savitabhabhi.com, home of the popular soft porn Indian cartoon strip based on the “sexual adventures of a hot Indian bhabhi”.
As of June 30, the website — which gets 60 million visitors each month, about 70 per cent from India — cannot be accessed from the country.
The website was blocked without prior notice to its anonymous creators. Its administrator, who goes by the username Deshmukh, has started a ‘Save Savita’ website, Twitter stream and Facebook group.
Describing the block as “selective internet censorship” in a post on www.savesav-ita.com, Deshmukh has sought the help of Savita Bhabhi’s fans, asking them to file a Right To Information request to find out why the website has been singled out among the plethora of pornographic websites.
