Porn ban in India is the latest talk of the town and the issue is fast becoming nation's number one concern for various reasons. Tamil actors and actresses have come out to oppose our government's latest order citing that the ban is already sending out wrong signals.
According to a report by Times of India, next generation celebrities have criticized the move strongly by saying that banning porn will not help our nation's cause in any possible way.
It is said that over 850 adult sites have been banned on the internet as the government believes that pornography might give way to violence against women, which is one of the major concerns in India at the moment.
But the decision have largely attracted hatred and chaos among citizens and celebrities alike. In fact, some of them have even said that banning pornographic sites is an act of dictatorship and that it will not reduce any kind of violence against women.
VJ and actress Ramya is the only exception, for she has supported the government's latest order. Saying that the ban will curtail morphing of popular actresses, Ramya thinks the move will also restore innocence among today's kids.
Check out the slides below to see how Tamil celebrities have opposed the decision of banning porn in India:
This is what the dashing actress of Kalyana Samayal Saadham fame had posted on her Twitter account, "Let's just treat the country like they're a bunch of ten-year-olds, not adults with the freedom to choose. #fail #pornban #eyeroll".
Speaking to TOI, RJ turned actor Balaji has said that porn is something that should not be considered as an important issue and that banning it will not change anything, certainly not rape or abuse.
Though Kushboo has not involved herself directly in the issue she has retweeted number of tweets which opposes the idea of banning porn. Here are some of her retweets, "Dear govt, what you really need to ban is illegal sharing of music and movies on the Internet. That's killing the industry. #PornBan". "Pornography gets banned in India. And Asaram is declared a 'saint' ????".

The famed Indian director who had penned the script of Tamil flick Thiruda Thiruda along with Mani Ratnam is known for his frank opinions in public forum. He had posted, "To deprive consenting adults of the harmless fun they ar having of watching porn is equivalent of what Taliban nd Isis is doing to freedom".
Actress Sahithya who was seen in Kathai Thiraikathai Vasanam Iyakkam has called it a violation of public's right. Calling the ban an act of stupidity, the young actress has said that people will indulge in some other activities when they are not allowed to watch porn.
