The government has decided to implement ban on porn sites and every other content leading to pornography; Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MOCIT) has instructed Nepal Telecom Authority-the body controlling the regulations of websites in the country- to take over the action and also to remove offensive contents from the web. The unprecedented move by the government prohibits the broadcasting, distribution, publication of offensive sexual content in the hope to dwarfing this boundless rape cases and easy access over sexual contents leading to a heinous crime in Nepal.

MOCIT names it as ‘The New Muluki Yen (Aparad Samhita) 2074’ which restricts all the ISP, social media and telecom to ban such websites so it will take a little while for its implementation.

Please read the following letter approved by MOCIT for the implementation of the law as follows:

Ban on porn site
MOCIT Letter For Porn Site Block in Nepal

Now, the question is: Will the government be successful in reducing the rape cases in the country just by the ban on porn sites? This Abstain move taken by the government will not cease the sexual crimes over the nation: People will find numerous ways to download and share it through the web. Several VPN and Proxy allow free access over their content.

The blocked website will result in an error showing “This website has been blocked as per NTA’s Policy”.

The decision and formulated law completely imply lack of research for the social media and porn is not only the cause of rape and violence over girls: Rape is knocking the doors and ringing the bells only in the areas of less security, Nepal doesn’t have a strict punishment for those culprits, people’s mindset should be change and many others factors to be enlisted before the act to reduce the rate of these crimes.

Hoping the heinous crime against girls will stop and diverges the path, let’s move a step forward and support the government for the initiation of this law.
