Everybody must have laughed their hearts out while going through the first list of blocked websites in Nepal. Then came the second, updated list.
While going through the first 10 websites in the list, I found 6 out 10 sites were wrongly listed. You can guess what the rest of the list might look like (and, it is the second updated list)! I will do the remaining review later.
Second website in the list – is a parked domain. Hey, it is full of ads and nothing in it and it is blocked because the domain name is not decent-enough!
The ISPs in Nepal have blocked 60 different sites in Nepal, as per the instruction of the government. The decision was taken in a meeting held at the Home Ministry. Present at the meeting were the representatives of Home Ministry, Nepal Telecommunication Authority (NTA), and representative of Nepal Internet Service Providers (NISP).
Nagariknews reports that the ISPs affiliated with NISP have already banned the sites identified as p0rn sites. Others will have to follow when NTA orders them to do so.
