Porn Holocaust


"Nothing can more efficiently destroy a person, fizzle their mind, evaporate their future, eliminate their potential or destroy society like pornography. It is so terrible that many do not even recognize it until it is too late, and most refuse to admit it. It is worse than Hitler, worse than AIDS, cancer or any other epidemic. It is more catastrophic than nuclear holocaust, and it must be stopped".

India's apparent ban on hundreds of pornographic Web sites has been met largely with befuddlement and despair, but there are some who are reveling in the new restrictions.
Media reports pointed in particular to one activist lawyer from the state of Madhya Pradesh who has been championing the fight against pornography for more than a decade. A few weeks ago, Kamlesh Vaswani had filed a petition to India's Supreme Court, requesting that it ward against the "harmful effects" of explicit content. That request was declined by the court.
There's a rather remarkable passage in the document submitted by Vaswani that warns of the threat pornography poses for all of society. Let's just say he is not a master of understatement.
Nothing can more efficiently destroy a person, fizzle their mind, evaporate their future, eliminate their potential or destroy society like pornography. It is so terrible that many do not even recognize it until it is too late, and most refuse to admit it. It is worse than Hitler, worse than AIDS, cancer or any other epidemic. It is more catastrophic than nuclear holocaust, and it must be stopped.
After being rebuffed earlier, Vaswani is now celebrating the work of government censors.
"I’m extremely happy that [Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's] government has finally decided to take action against online pornography considering the Supreme Court’s observations. The ban is definitely a step towards protecting the country’s women and children," he told the Hindustan Times in a phone interview.
Vaswani blames pornography for gruesome incidents of sexual violence against women and gang rapes in India that have drawn international attention in recent years. He also rejected the suggestion that women may want to watch porn, too. "To say Indian women watch porn is an insult to their dignity," he told the Indian newspaper.
As my colleague Rama Lakshmi notes, this is hardly the first time that Indian authorities have moved to ban certain Internet content in a country whose myriad cultural and religious sensitivities sometimes trump freedom of speech.
Officials claimed Tuesday that the current ban relates only to child pornography and "gross porn," though it wasn't clear what fell under the latter category.
