Mumbai, Aug 3: The government directing internet providers to block 857 porn sites is akin to "Talibanisation" of the country, former Union Minister Milind Deora said on Monday.

"And the government takes one more step towards the Talibanization of India," Deora, former Union Minister of State for IT and Communications, tweeted. [Government directs internet providers to block over 800 porn sites]

"The latest ban is not about liking or disliking porn. It's about govt hijacking personal liberties. What'll they ban next - phones and TVs?" the Congress leader asked. [Porn ban: A violation of Article 21 or an alarm sounded too late?]

"Privacy is my inalienable, constitutional right," Deora, a former MP from South Mumbai, added. The Union government has ordered blocking of as many as 857 porn websites, sparking off a debate on social media over censorship and freedom of speech.
