It is not unusual for any Government to issue an order under the pressure of a segment of ruling party who are hardliner. Such orders are then withdrawn when public protests. It makes hardliner as well as public happy. But this recent ban by the Government of India has raised certain issues which pertain to not only people of India but whole human civilization.


The human civilization on Planet Earth has reached to that maturity when it can adopt  the Universal Law Code applicable to all the countries of the world, whether they agree or not?  If they do not agree they must be convinced for it.

The crime against humanity are same all over world, and all of them have certain provisions of penalties in law. The treaty of extradition is not enforceable sometime because crimes committed in one country is not crime in another country.
Since we now perceive the whole world as Global Village it would not be untoward worthy to apply the Universal Law Code. That would be the only solution of worldwide terrorism.

All popular porn sites have their Corporate Offices in countries other than India, which have liberal laws for Porn Industries. The owners cannot be punished in India. So the only remedy left to the Government is to ban those sites.

India stands fourth in Porn Watching. First three are, USA, UK and Canada.
Even 25% Females watch porn while the world average is 23%.

The Child Porn sites remain a criminal offence all over the world. Even if Government of all nations make an effort to abolish this industry it would be a great boon to coming generations.

India has always claimed to be an ancient Guru who can act as Friend ,Guide and Philosopher so far as  Love Life of the people is concerned.

Gay Telese in his book Thy Neighbour's Wife has traced the history of  Porn Industry. Hugh Hefner remains undisputed king of this prurient empire.

Many have contributed in their own way to revolutionize and popularize the taste of this forbidden fruit. Some of them are Mark Twain, Pushkin, Henry Miller, Anne Rice, Nabokov, Colleen McCullough and  E .L James.

The Seven Minutes by Irving Wallace and Eleven Minutes by Paulo Coelho are exemplary attempts to explore sexuality in human relationship.

Indian porn is searched and seen as Desi Porn in India and abroad.

A writ petition was filed in Supreme Court of India to impose ban on all porn sites on following arguments

1. Promotes violence against women

2. Socially destructive

3. Dangerous for safety of nation

Ban on Porn Sites is not remedy of these ailments. Enforcement of laws to stop crime against women is required. Parental care and guidance is required to youth specially teenagers and remedy to quench natural urges of defense personnel must be sought.

Imposing ban is no remedy.
