India's porn ban collapses in less than 48 hours

Politicians learn the hard way that you can't get between the voters and their preferred recreational activity.

News of the ban caused a furore on Indian social media, with several senior politicians and members of civil society expressing their opposition to the move.

The Indian government said that it was merely complying with the Supreme Court order and was committed to the freedom of communication on the Internet.

"I reject with contempt the charge that it is a Talibani government, as being said by some of the critics. Our government supports free media, respects communication on social media and has respected freedom of communication always," Mr Prasad told PTI.
