Kathmandu, October 11

More than 21,000 websites offering pornographic content have banned in Nepal so far following the government’s decision to ban porn, according to the Nepal Telecommunications Authority (NTA).

The government cracked down on pornographic websites in view of increasing incidents of rape and sexual harassment in the country.

The NTA started making a list of such websites on September 24 acting on directives from the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology. According to the directive, the sharing, distribution and broadcasting of porn is now illegal in Nepal.

There are over 100 internet service providers operating in Nepal.
