Porn is affecting the youth’s mind, ban porn sites: Bihar CM urges PM

Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Monday wrote to PM Narendra Modi urging him to ban porn sites and 'inappropriate content' available online. "Such content, which affects the minds of children and youths, have found responsible for crimes (against women),"
 
Kumar said. "In my opinion, the availability of such content...in the name of freedom of expression is unfair," added Kumar. Nitish Kumar had announced before a massive gathering of people that he would soon write to the Prime Minister seeking a complete ban on pornographic sites.
 
Kumar elucidated that ill-effects of technology and social media websites had started blurring the thoughts of users, mostly teenagers.
 
He also admitted that while the Information Technology Act 200 already exists to keep a tab on such activities, it is not proving to be an effective measure. He added that the apex court has also given directions on this issue from time to time.
