'If you don't like porn, don't watch it'

Several celebrities took to Twitter to share their views on the Indian government's decision to ban porn sites. 

Ram Gopal Varma: 'All countries which legalised porn advanced for instance America not becos of Porn but indicative of giving respect to individual's Liberty. What was said in Supreme Court of America in Larry flynt case "If you don't like porn don't watch but you can't stop who wants to watch it". 25% of all porn visitors originating from India are women, whereas globally, 23% of visitors are women.

'50% of all Indians who access Pornhub do so from their mobiles; India ranks #3 in overall Android traffic with US and Uk at #1 and #2 rank. Indians love porn and the proof is India currently ranked #5 in overall traffic online, with USA ranking at #1. This basically means that it's going to be so many lesser votes for the government in the next election.'

Minissha Lamba: Maybe soon, we can expect #Twitter ban, #Facebook ban, #YouTube ban.. Will be back to reading books. Oh no! They may be banned too.

Chetan Bhagat: Don't ban porn. Ban men ogling, leering, brushing past, groping, molesting, abusing, humiliating and raping women. Ban non-consent. Not sex.

Vishesh Bhatt: The advocate, Vijay Panjwani supporting #pornban has no clue about the Web. He seems as old as the IPC from British/Victorian Raj. Why??
