Bangladesh to block 500 locally hosted porn sites
The government has decided to restrict access to more than 500 locally hosted pornography websites. Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) sent out a list of the websites on Monday to several organisations that provide internet services, sources said. Mobile phone operators, international gateway operators, internet service providers, interconnection exchange operators, and other telecom service providers received the list. They are taking steps to block the domains from their respective networks. A committee was formed in November to block access to pornographic and objectionable contents on the internet from Bangladesh. The Posts and Telecommunications Division committee listed websites that host such contents and are accessible from the country. Tarana Halim, the state minister for posts and telecommunications, had said the ISPs should play an active role in blocking such websites hosted in Bangladesh. “We could not block all the porn sites but if we could block even 80% of them, it would be huge accomplishment for us,” she said earlier this month.
