Egypt bans porn sites for ‘destroying religious belief’

• http://rt.com
 

An Egyptian administrative court has banned internet porn sites, describing them as "poisons in spreading immorality.” The move has some liberal activists worried that Egypt may be moving towards Sharia law.

­The court’s verdict said X-rated sites “destroy all religious belief, ethics and moral values.” It also stated that not blocking them would “destroy values,” and the decision could not be considered within the frame of freedom of expression because the material shown on the websites “harms the country’s higher interests and its national and social security.”

The ruling means that Egyptians are now banned from surfing the web for porn, while it has ordered the websites to be blocked.
