Taking cognizance of a complaint filed before it, a parliamentary committee is studying ways to curb cyber porn which is ‘distorting and distressing’ society. The Committee on Petitions of Rajya Sabha, headed by Bhagat Singh Koshyari, on Thursday invited suggestions from the public on the issue and the need to amend the IT Act, 2000.

The petition was signed by Mumbai-based Jain priest Vijayratna Sunder Suri and countersigned by Rajya Sabha MP Vijay Darda.  “More than two-thirds of population is below 35 years.

This large section of the population, which is the hope for the country, is getting digressed, distorted and distressed due to the growing free sex culture through cyber pornography,” the petition said. It  sought a ban on online porn content.
