India Blocks 32 Websites

India has blocked thirty two websites including the internet archive, Pastebin, and Vimeo. Surprisingly enough this has nothing to do with piracy.

The national head of Indian political party Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), announced on Twitter that, "The websites that have been blocked were based on an advisory by Anti Terrorism Squad, and were carrying Anti India content from ISIS." Gupta added, "The sites that have removed objectionable content and/or cooperated with the on going investigations, are being unblocked."
