WHAT IS CHILD PORNOGRAPHY?

Definition of Child-

A person under the age of 18 years is said to be a child. This definition is purely a biological one and doesnot take into account people who live with intellectual and Psycho-social disability.

·        A recent case in SC has been filed where a women of biological age 38yrs but mental age 6yrs was raped.

·        The CBI recently arrested a man from Lucknow who is alleged to have been running an international racket of child porn on WhatsApp.This is not the first time that a messaging app has been used for child porn. Such news keeps coming from Europe and America.

 

·        Many of the reports refer to Canadian messaging app 'Kick'. According to Forbes, most of the users of Kick started in 2009 are 13-24 years old, due to which it is very popular among children who sexually abuse children (Pedophiles- the person who sexually attract children).

 

·        Thomas Paul Keeler, who was caught from North Carolina in March 2016, loved the kick so much that he had added 200 groups related to child porn on it.

 

·        Keylor used kick to share pornographic photos and videos of 3 to 12-year-olds with 300 people a year. Forbes also did a story on this in August 2017.

RESULT OF SURVEY IN VIEW OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

·        A report from UNICEF on 6 February 2017 says that there is no information on how large the online child porn industry is in India, because the government has never conducted a survey in this regard.

 

·        According to a report by UNICEF in September 2016, more than 13 crore children in India have phones.Government figures are different from this but they also do not deny the loss of thousands of children every year due to addiction of phones and being trapped in the web of pedophiles.

SUPREME COURT BANNING PORNOGRAPHIC WEBSITES

·        In August 2015 the Government of Indiaissued an order to Indian ISPs to block at least 857 websites that it considered to be pornographic.In 2015 the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had asked internet service providers to take down 857 websites in a bid to control cyber crime, but after receiving criticism from the authorities it partially rescinded the ban. The ban from the government came after a lawyer filed a petition in the Supreme Court arguing that online pornography encourages sex crimes and rapes.

 

·        In February 2016 the Supreme Court asked the Indian Government to suggest ways of banning all forms of child pornography.

 

·        In October 2018 the governmentdirected Internet service providers to block 827 websites that host pornographic content following an order by the Uttarakhand High Court.
