Internet censorship for Afghanistan

Not exactly democratic….

The Internet freedom advocacy group Electronic Frontier Foundation reports that despite being liberated from the clutches of the notorious Taliban, the state of Afghanistan is attempting to impose Internet censorship, following in the footsteps of China, Pakistan and Australia.

The Foundation reports that the country last week required that all ISPs begin filtering websites that focus on alcohol, dating and social networking, gambling, and pornography.

Users who have complained about the censorship have been told by their ISPs to contact the Ministry Of Communications, which is not famed for responding.

The EFF also reports that in Turkey, the government is facing a new legal challenge from a Turkish Internet rights group for blocking Google services.
