Sonam Kapoor, Ram Gopal Varma and others react to Govt’s porn ban


Over the weekend, there was a storm on the social networking sites as web surfers realized that popular porn sites have been banned by the India government. The decision has shocked most internet consumers in India. For the uninitiated, the government had recently decided to restrict access to porn websites. As a step in this direction, the ISPs (Internet Service Providers) have apparently been ordered to block over 850 websites, which were deemed as ‘porn’. However, it was not just the aam junta, but also the B-town junta which protested against the ban on social media.

We bring you reactions of some of the B-town celebrities on what they felt about the ban.

Sonam Kapoor: “Ban idiots who think banning things is going to make a difference to Indian mentality.. #sooverthisgovt #NextBanIdea #sick #ashamed”


Ram Gopal Varma: “Considering the sheer popularity of porn whichever government owns up to banning it, is sure to be wiped out of existence in next election. Government should work on finding ways to steer the content not to go in wrong directions rather than to block it. To deprive consenting adults of the harmless fun they are having of watching porn is equivalent of what Taliban and Isis is doing to freedom. To ban porn saying it will be seen by who shouldn’t see it is like saying to stop traffic because there will be accidents.”


Milap Zaveri: “Huh Porn is banned??? Hmmm not the sites I know about!”


Uday Chopra: “So India bans porn. Will this decision lower the cases of sexual violence or increase it. I wonder.”


Vishal Dadlani: “I wouldn’t be surprised. Ironically, banned by the same party whose MPs were caught watching porn in parliament.”


Chetan Bhagat: “Don’t ban porn. Ban men ogling, leering, brushing past, groping, molesting, abusing, humiliating and raping women. Ban non-consent. Not sex.”
