Craigslist CEO and other Internet users complained several times that such websites where people can find prostitutes, can be found very easily in Internet.
Government compelled Craigslist to do more to block potentially illegal ads promoting prostitution, and hailed the company's decision to take down its adult services section on Sep 4.
However, according to sources, it's not clear if the shutdown is permanent.
"The issue isn't going after a particular company," said Human Rights activist, Malika Saada Saar.
Saar also continued, "the issue is going after children being sold for sex online."
