The IIG has already started shutting down several porn sites after the directive

Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has directed to shutdown 244 pornography websites.

BTRC issued a directive to the International Internet Gateway (IIG) in this regard on Wednesday.

The IIG has already started shutting down several porn sites after the directive.

Earlier in the day, Telecommunications and Information Minister Mostafa Jabbar posted a status on his verified Facebook page where he said: “Shutting down 244 porn sites. The drive will continue.”

Previously, he mentioned that they were unable to permanently shut down the websites.

“The sites became active within a few days after they were shut down. It is the biggest challenge for us,” Jabbar said.

At that time the minister also added YouTube was one of the biggest sources of porn and they have spoken to the concerned authorities who agreed to remove some of the contents.

Responding to queries about the matter, Internet Service Provider Association of Bangladesh (ISPAB) General Secretary Imdadul Hoque said: “Implementation of the BTRC orders is already underway.

“Not all of these are porn sites. There are certain links that contain pornographic content.”

He said this was an ongoing process as the website owners resort to several kinds of technology to make the sites active again.
