SC Reserves Decision on 'Use of Children in Porn' - Raises Serious Concerns

The Supreme Court says that watching pornography of a child once may not be a crime but the use of children in pornographic films is a very worrying topic.

On Friday, a division bench comprising Chief Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice JB Pardiwala reserved its verdict on a petition filed by two NGOs, namely the Faridabad-based NGO "Just Rights for Children Alliance of Faridabad" and New Delhi's "Bachpan Bachao Andolan."

The petition challenges the decision of the Madras High Court. Both NGOs are dedicated to the welfare of destitute children.

It's worth mentioning that the Madras High Court, in its ruling, stated that simply watching or downloading child pornography does not constitute a crime under the POCSO Act and the Information Technology Act.

On January 11, the High Court acquitted a 28-year-old individual who had been accused in a criminal case of downloading child pornographic material onto his mobile phone.
