Many Indian porn lovers woke up to a rude shock on Sunday morning: On most internet service providers (ISPs) – including Vodafone, MTNL, ACT, Hathway and BSNL – porn sites were inaccessible.

The matter came to light late on Saturday, when a number of internet users across the country could not access pornographic websites. On searching for popular porn sites Pornhub and Redtube, all they ended up on were blank pages.

Porn watchers who couldn’t access the sites took to social media platforms like Twitter and Reddit to bring the matter to light.

One Reddit user posted a shot of his screen with a message that said the particular porn site was “blocked as per the directions received from Department of Telecommunications, Government of India”.

Vodafone users in Delhi said on searching for popular porn sites, they ended up on a blank page.

“When I checked last night it was opening fine, but this morning it seems all the popular porn sites are blocked,” said a Vodafone user from Kolkata. The user said porn sites were also not accessible on Alliance Broadband service in Kolkata.
