India Bans Comics Porn Site

An article emanating from Reuters India indicates that governmental authorities in India have taken steps against the porn comics site Savita Bhabhi. All ISPs were asked by a government office to block the web site in a memo dated June 3. The government agency responsible confirmed the move, citing complaints. This throws the spotlight on more general issues of Indian government censorship over on-line material. A higher court challenge is being mulled over. The comics-driven web site, featuring an erotically-driven Indian housewife, was launched in 2008.
