Hello citizens of democratic free india,
SHAME ON THE India GOVERNMENTT.......IS THIS THE SAME DEMOCRATIC INDIA WE WERE ONCE PROUD OF?
The Indian Govt has issued a directive to all service providers to block access to certain sites which they consider is a serious threat to the nation's security. And the list of site includes all the millions of blogs. being hosted by various sites like blogger.com. Did u hear the Govt's explanation for this bloody directive? They are saying that some blogs are used by terrorist organisations to communicate their secret messages. he hee....even though am seething with anger at this extreme step from our govt, i couldn't help laughing at this truly wonderful logic. Imagine this.. 2 lashkar terrorists starting a blog... 1st terrorist posts a message on their next operation.. 2nd terrorist accesses the blog, reads the post and go to the comments section and reply.... all this in a site, which can be accessed by any person who has an internet connection.. Does the Indian govt think that these terrorists are some characters of some doordarshan soap to be so brainless? And mind you, this is a day when terrorists are sending messages encrypted in pictures, which would appear normal to anyone who looks into it. Would any person in his right mind think of passing messages through such a public domain? Maybe, he may think, if that person is a member of parliament or one of the Hon. ministers in the UPA govt.
The decision for ban is said to have been taken after the Mumbai blasts last week. But did the govt forget that it was a blog named mumbaihelp, which came as a reliable source for information about the missing persons. It also co-ordinated the relief activities at the various centres. All this was made possible because some good samaritans with similar thinking came together in blogosphere. Why did the govt. fail to see the good side of it all? Instead it cooked up a dark side, which is non existent at best. Blogs like IndiaUncut are contributing more creative thoughts on the future of India than all those elected representatives in parliament, who are being paid exhorbitant salaries for the same thing.
This directive is a direct attack on freedom of expression, of the kind seen in such countries as Pakistan and China. Do we want to be in the same black list with those countries? Does India want to earn name as a country which keeps the free thinking of its citizens in chains? India is slowly on this path going by recent developments. The 'da vinci code' saga is another case in point. SHAME ON U..UPA.... SHAME ON U.... GOVT OF INDIA....
