India bans access to blogs

I heard about it via Google alert yesterday and now it has been confirmed, India has banned access to Blogspot, Typepad, Geocities and more than 15 other websites.

India has “joined the Internet Filtering Club of China, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Ethiopia.” I can’t say that I blame India bloggers for being angry at the way the ban was imposed.

The banned blogs are accessible by logging in through third party websites. This certainly sounds like internet censorship to me.
