Dirty politics behind recent website block issue?

News channels (read CNN-IBN) got very much excited to show something on their favorite topic “blog”, “Blog sites blocked by Indian government”, “Bloggers unite against government” Okay fair enough but don’t you think that they missed one major point in this so called “blog hype”.

It is question about websites getting blocked without any reason, not just blogs but all kind of sites. Government does not know what blog is, all they know is, “they have to block the site given by the head department” (read as top politicians)

And in this hype we missed points: which sites are blocked?, Why the sites got blocked? Today I saw scanned copy of blocked websites here

 

Apart from few blogspot blocked it had few indian sites too…here is list of some of the blocked sites:

http://www.hinduunity.org/ – Their fault? They had content showing news about what is happening to Hindus around India, I can see them showing news (forum topics which no longer work) like “Pakistan: Hindu Girls Kidnapped, Forced to Islam”, “Russian Archbshp Calls Lord Krishna a ‘Devil'”, the site also shows links to various topics like Ayodhya Evidence, some hindu related news. In short, it is a Hindu Site with links to Hindu sites.

http://www.hinduhumanrights.org – This site is mainly about human rights of Hindus and provides news about Hindu community and YES, they have also posted an article related to protest against Indian government regarding 11th July train blasts. I do not see any logic in banning this site.

http://www.dalitstan.org – This site is mainly for human rights of Dalit people and is currently (taken) down. Web archive does not show anything offending on their site.

http://www.rahulyadav.com – His fault was, he provided links to various Hindu organizations like BJP, VHP, RSS etc..

And now let’s see the point of view of “We love America“, the sites which are against America, block them… (even America does not care to block these sites)

http://mypetjawa.mu/ – The site is basically anti-islam more than that, it is trying to speak the truth…check this post for example: Why The Jawa Report Was Banned in India and Why it Matters (No relation with India or Indian people)

http://pajamaeditors.blogspot.com/ – This site is anti-communist site or in other words, they are also trying to speak their mind. (Again no relation with India or Indian people)

http://exposingtheleft.blogspot.com – This site is basically anti-american or anti-war or political blog, they are trying to speak their mind…(Again no relation with India or Indian people) A good post by them here (Thanks to Publia for the pointers)

http://www.mackers-world.com – This site is again anti-american This site is a personal blog of a person who is expressing his political views on his site and again no relation with India. (Thanks to Publia for the pointers)

So the point here is, the government is trying to say is, if your site is promoting hindu religion, giving information about Hindu religion or it is anti-american… we will block the site. We do not care about hundreds of Jihadi sites…

I still do not understand why the hell government has to do these kind of things? What are they trying to prove? Are they planning for Hindu Muslim war in this 21st century? (Forget it if they are, people are much more smarter now) I, as a normal surfer could not find anything wrong on those sites so who the hell government is to decide what is good and what is bad? I am paying for this internet bill every month, who in the world are they to block the access?

  1. the idoits who took this decision , do they know wht actully is blog or wht is internet or computer , lol

  2. who is the ass who signed it..
    they have no idea.. all they can do is.. they will watch news and the protests..

    they proudly speak out “we have appointed a new committee to moniter this” as if they need a huge force to do it..
    i would suggest to pick up loads of unemployed bloggers (they would do better work)..

    eesh.. i feel ashamed to even look at the scanned copy proudly says “Ministry of communication”

    that guys doesnt even have shame to show his name “Asst director general” doing such small grade work without even reviewing it..

    i would have atleast opened them and seen before giving a green signal..

    i understand few sites like dalitsthan should be banned.. coz it actually caused few fires between own community..

    but as per deeps review of sites many had no relation with all thse stuff

    well Mr govt.. when are u appointing a new commission.. so that even i can join (i ensure i would make few sensible moves).
    atleast outsource it to us i mean deep, me , and fellow bloggers.. hehe 😉

  3. Hi Deep,
    I reached your blog via Dina Mehta’s blog. I was surprised to see that you referred to Macker’s-World and Exposingtheleft as anti-American blogs–they aren’t. Rather, they are both examples of the average no-holds-barred free ranging freedom of speech that Americans are very comfortable with. When the ban is lifted (as we all hope) I hope you will take some time to visit around on a wide variety of American blogs. Many of them express political viewpoint from every imaginable perspective–none of them would be viewed by Americans as anti-American, although they might be viewed as against the viewpoint of one or the other political parties.

    I really liked your post.

  5. Such bad things will happen so long as the Italian Sonia is in control of Congress. She is a chrisitian and anti-Hindu. She has christian coterie, doing all that is possible to convert Hindus. Her chief ministers in the states are mostly christians. She hates anything that is Hindu, anything that tries to protect Hinduism. That is the reason for the ban.
