March 12 is the World Day against Cyber Censorship.

As soon as the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt got under way, most regimes that censor the Internet quickly reinforced online content filtering in a bid to head off any possibility of similar unrest spreading to their own countries.

Today it’s established fact that social media internet are new methods which we humans got to protest against government or against injustice.

Social networks have been conclusively established as tools for protest, campaigning and circulating information, and as vehicles for freedom.

More and more politicians and government of different nations have started to fear the internet and they are trying to curb and ban the internet on the name of religion or any other reason.

No reason is valid to ban the internet.

Global media watchdog group Reporters without Borders on Monday released its “Enemies of the Internet” list for 2012.

The list includes 12 “Internet Enemies” and 14 “countries under surveillance.”

Following are the names of 12 countries which are enemies of the internet.

10. Turkmenistan

12. Vietnam

In India, it is lack of policy and unclear action plan which is predominant.
There was a ministry for IT but most of the time they did work on languages and infrastructure.
