Why is Yahoo India Censoring the web?

Filed under: My Thoughts — Suramya @ 9:58 PM

Why is the Yahoo India site ( censoring the internet? Basically when you do an image search on the Yahoo India site, which Yahoo automatically takes you to when you go to in India there is no way you can turn off the “Safe Search” option.

As far as I know the Indian government hasn’t banned porn in India. Actually… according to this news article on the Times of India dated Feb 11th 2010 the Govt can’t ban porn websites for obscenity.

So why is Yahoo filtering out results? Yahoo is the only search engine that I know which is doing this. Google, MSN don’t filter out stuff so…

In any case I don’t use Yahoo for much, but still. Does any one reading this have any idea what is going on?
