Bangladesh Blocks Internet Porn

nopornInternet providers in the conservative Muslim-majority nation of Bangladesh (ha, bang) took down pornography after orders from the telecommunications regulator who has said, “this is my war against pornography.” The crackdown was launched after Bangladesh’s High Court in November asked the government to block pornography websites and publication of obscene materials in electronic forms for six months.

Most of the blocked sites are foreign, but a few local websites and social media platforms have also faced action under the crackdown. Local Facebook profiles, YouTube channels and websites that are deemed “provocative” or “go against our social norms” are being actively targeted. Thankfully, many users can still access online porn by using virtual private networks or mirror websites — but as the conservative telecommunications regulator warned, “this will be a continuous war.”
