Kamlesh Vaswani, The Man Who Made The Porn Ban Possible In India

Last weekend was not as chilled out as we wanted it to go. The country woke up to the crazy news of banned porn sites by the Indian Government and the people was surely not very happy about the same.

Ever wondered who was behind all this and lead this on? 

Meet Kamlesh Vaswani, A lawyer from Indore( self-proclaimed anti-pornography activist) who filed a PIL against banning of porn sites in India. For that matter, He had filed the PIL soon after the Nirbhaya case took place in New Delhi.

According to this Lawyer, An adult watching porn contributes to the accretion of already high crime rate in India. He quotes, “The ban is definitely a step towards protecting the country’s women and children. Watching porn itself puts the country’s security in danger, encourages violent acts, unacceptable behavior in society, exploitation of children and lowers the dignity of women.” He, very confidently adds, “My fight has been against obscenity. I feel watching porn fuels violence against women. It propels men to commit sex crimes. I saw no women come forward and speak up against pornography, so I did it.

Vaswani has always been against the idea of easy access of pornography to the Internet Users. He didn’t know what to do about it so he very conveniently linked sex crimes and pornography together and filed a Public Interest Litigation in the Supreme court in 2013. Now, when Finally the PIL has been approved by the Modi Governmnet in his favour he thinks this crucial ban will work towards the uplift-ment and betterment of women and children. The masses seem to differ and have come out in the open to strongly oppose it his reasoning.

We were not surprised when had something utterly abrupt to add to the long list of quotes he made after the approval of Porn Ban India. He said, “To say Indian women watch porn is an insult to their dignity.”

Twitter world has gladly taken over Vaswani’s page and are continuously mocking him for creating a not needed fuss throughout the nation.

Only the time will tell how right or wrong this decision is, but for now The country is not enjoying this idea and is doing its best to show their disapproval.

What do you have to say about it? Are you in favor of this act or against it? Leave your views below.
