“India is to partially lift a ban on online pornography after criticism over authorities’ decision to block more than 800 pornographic websites.

In the first large-scale crackdown on the internet in India, the world’s largest democracy, websites were blocked over the weekend as telecommunications companies began to implement government instructions.

The Department of Communications said the aim was to prevent pornography becoming a social nuisance, but the move immediately prompted a nationwide debate about censorship and freedom.

Indian news outlets reported on Wednesday that the ban would be partially withdrawn. Ravi Shankar Prasad, the information and technology minister, told India Today TV: “A new notification will be issued shortly. The ban will be partially withdrawn. Sites that do not promote child porn will be unbanned.”
