Indian govt. has asked all ISPs to block SavitaBhabhi.com, the famous adult toon site, that features a married woman’s sexual adventures.
CCA (Controller of Certifying Authorities) has confirmed the development (source) and said that the site owners haven’t come back questioning the decision.
Few days back, we covered the new IT act bill amendment that almost enables Indian govt. to block any website without any provision to contest the decision. and the IT Act 2008 Bill which terms publishing of obscene material offensive.
Savita Bhabi – Website Traffic
With an Alexa rank of 1,078 (85th most-visited Indian website), SavitaBhabhi enjoys a very ‘focused’ traffic and since the domain is not registered in India, it would be interesting to see whether the cultural angle of obscenity will play a strong role in banning the site (to give you some context, nothing happened in Celina Jaitley/Gizomodo case.).
And if that’s the case, what about tons of other sites who are running porn sites as pure porn play as compared to Savitabhabhi, which can still be termed creative (it’s all in your mind!)?
What’s your take on this issue?
Interesting part is that the site is still running and Savitabhabhi founders haven’t received any letter from CCA. So it still is in your mind!
