Porn to be blocked by Mauritian Government?

According to some newspaper articles and blog posts [1], the government is planning to block porn websites. They say it is for the “security” of the population. They say such websites contain malware which can infect PCs. This blog post is not about whether porn is good or bad. It is about the government blocking websites of the so-called ┬┤free┬┤ Internet.

If the government can block porn websites today, it would be able to block any other website in the future which doesn’t support its propaganda and gets flagged as “negative websites”

Examples can be the “opposition” website, free press and later, maybe, even Facebook or Twitter.
Why not? Some countries do it already.

Ok. How do you think this law will be put the constitution?

1. The government will block access to pornography websites which poses as a security threat to the population.

Or

2. The government may block access to websites which poses as a security threat to the population such as pornography websites…

These two statements above may look the same to some people. But it is not. Read then again. They’re doing different things.

The discussion on porn can be a mere distraction. Parents, religious people would support the government the decision. But something else could be done at the end.

Conclusion

Everyone knows porn websites are “risky”. We don’t dictatorship methods to be tested on us.
