How does one man's moral obligation turn into death of freedom for everyone else. In every other free country democratic country of the world, the majority rules the minority. Here few religious fanatics and politicians rule all of us. Why the sudden outburst about something we have all known and lived with all this while? Well because, the govt. of India (and the judiciary) has decided that they have the right to tell us what to see and what to not on the internet.

It has started blocking websites. I was as usual on my way to find some torrents when I got this error "site has been blocked due to court order". I thought it must be a case with that particular site but no all torrent sites seem to have the same issue. Then I realised that I had read someplace in postscript size, something about the govt. hurriedly getting the power to shut down websites as and when they see fit. The end of an era ? Maybe, maybe not. Will the educated tech savvy people of India let this pass ? Only time will tell but one thing is for sure, the media again will have to play a big part in this.

For now the jury is literally out (of its mind)

Seems the main reason is this

Calcutta high court has ordered shutting down these sites, leave it to West Bengal to be idiotic.

Some one should take a stay order in supreme court against this nonsense.
