ISPs ordered to block 429,323 porn sites

Pakistan is getting ready for a massive crackdown on Internet pornography, with its regulator ordering ISPs to block over 400,000 adult websites.

The Express Tribune reported that access to the domains from sites featuring pornography will be blocked at domain level.

The directive to block adult websites was issued by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority.

The Independent reported that the instruction followed a recent order by the Supreme Court in Pakistan requiring the telecom sector to “take remedial steps to quantify the nefarious phenomenon of obscenity and pornography that has an imminent role to corrupt and vitiate the youth of Pakistan”.
