Appearing before the bench headed by Chief Justice of India HL Dattu, Centre’s counsel Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi made the government’s stand clear by saying that the NDA government is committed to block websites of child pornography and to impose ban on all other porn sites, a larger debate is required in the society or Parliament.

Facing criticism from various quarters, the Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court it can’t be a “totalitarian state” by blocking all the porn sites in the country and the government cannot be present in everyone’s bedroom to regulate it.Appearing before the bench headed by Chief Justice of India HL Dattu, Centre’s counsel Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi made the government’s stand clear by saying that the NDA government is committed to block websites of child pornography and to impose ban on all other porn sites, a larger debate is required in the society or Parliament.<!– Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>”The Centre can’t turn to moral policing for the citizens and the government can’t regulate what people are doing in their bedroom. If two persons watching something in their bedroom can’t be penalised. We cannot be present in everyone’s bedroom…The state can’t be totalitarian,” Rohtagi argued.Last week, the Centre had said that Supreme Court’s repeated criticism of the ministry of home affairs for “inaction” on the list of websites with child pornographic content provided by petitioner Kamlesh Vaswani was the principal trigger for the blocking of 857 websites.The law officer told that the ministry would soon file an affidavit in the court explaining its action taken on the issue raised by the petition even as she emphasised only those adult websites which had child pornographic content were blocked.The government also ordered Internet service providers to shut down sites that promote child pornography. The service operators told the court that they have received conflicting directions from the government to block certain sites. They need specific directions from the government on which URLs to be blocked.During a hearing last month, the court had declined to pass an interim order to block porn websites, saying the court could not stop an adult from exercising his fundamental right to personal liberty to watch porn within the privacy of his room.”Somebody may come to the court and say look I am above 18 and how can you stop me from watching (pornography) within the four walls of my room. It is a violation of Article 21 (right to personal liberty),” the court made the remark.The court was hearing a PIL filed by Indore-based lawyer Kamlesh Vaswani who sought a total clampdown on websites showing pornography.

A few hours after her return, the 25 year old woman and a mother of two, along with her lover Kamlesh were produced before the tribal panchayat.According to the reports, both of them were beaten up in front of the villagers and then their heads were shaved off. Following this, the woman was stripped and Kamlesh was forced to “wash her breasts”.The incident happened in front of the entire village, but nobody came to her rescue. Though the woman’s husband opposed his wife’s humiliation, there was nothing that could stop this shameful act.The woman reported the incident to the police on Thursday who registered case against ten miscreants. “We have booked 10 persons under Section 354A, 294, 323, 120B, 147 and 506, and raids are being conducted to arrest them”, incharge of Alirajpur police station, Gopichand Patel was quoted by a media organisation.
