The government has ordered unblocking of all the 32 websites that were being used by terrorists after these sites promised to cooperate with the authorities and removed “jihadist” content. “Order was issued on Thursday to unblock all 32 websites that were blocked following complaint of Maharashtra anti-terrorism squad that ISIS is disseminating content through them. All websites has responded that they will work with government and removed jihadist content,” a source told PTI.

Indian Computer Emergency Response Team director general Gulshan Rai confirmed the development. The websites were blocked in November following an order from a Mumbai court, which was approached by Maharashtra anti-terrorism squad (ATS) with a plea to block some websites carrying anti-India content.
