The request, dated May 18, from India's Department of Telecommunications (DoT), which was inspected by media, doesn't determine an explanation behind obstructing the site, yet summons a proviso from conditions spread out for allowing licenses to ISPs.

The statement guides all permit holders to square sites "in light of a legitimate concern for national security or open intrigue". The DoT didn't quickly react to a solicitation for input.
