India’s Blog Banning Campaign

India has begun banning blogs that it deems offensive; the Jawa Report is one such blog. And it isn’t taking the ban lightly.

In a statement released Wednesday, Dr. Shackleford at the Jawa Report said, “India has been taken hostage by its sizeable Muslim population. It is afraid of its own citizens. It fears that if they are exposed to that which is religiously offensive, that violence might erupt. That if the government doesn’t do something, then they might just have to do something about the government. India’s banning of this and other websites, then, is completely rational. It is based on the real fear of real people who do real violence. Thus, it is completely understandable.”
