The government has formed a committee to restrict access to pornography and objectionable contents on the web from Bangladesh.
The Posts and Telecommunications Division committee will list websites that host such contents and are accessible from the country.
Access to such websites will be blocked after the committee submits its report to the telecom division within seven working days.
An official with knowledge of the matter said the committee would make recommendations for restricting access to those websites.
The director general of Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission heads the committee. Other members are Ministry of Information, National Telecommunication Monitoring Cell, Internet Service Provider organisations and representatives from mobile operators and law enforcement agencies.
