Ram Gopal Varma is against porn ban, says it will affect the social progress of the country

News Agencies | Updated on: 3 August 2015, 14:55 IST

Filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, in a series of tweets, has criticised the ban of porn websites in India.

Calling the move "regressive", Varma said banning porn sites is not a solution against sexual crimes.

"History proved it multiple times that if anytime anything is banned it will just gather strength in the underground.

"Any deprivation of personal liberty of an individual by a government amounts to a regression of social progress of that country. It's a proven fact by international surveys that instead of fuelling sexual crimes porn actually provides safer outlet for sexual repression," he tweeted.

The 53-year-old Satya director feels government should rather try to make sure the content does not go in "wrong direction."

"Government should work on finding ways to steer the content not to go in wrong directions rather than to block it.
