    Told them when I exited that their whole site and content is in radars of intelligence community ... The report says that is a hot bed of jihadi terrorist and promotes such activities by endorsing and sympathising..

    Many may not know.. many times I myself have been questioned saying I am suspicious person.. apprehension is there in many other forums..

    unfortunately people don't know I met most of the users here in person as well as talk and in WA group with them.. it is in the same group, ppl know how some of us approached ministry of telecommunications and MOD for black listing P D F in India as well..

    It's actively monitored..

    Also I don't mind if by any chance IDF goes down as well.. after all, more than being faceless cyber guy, offline real life is any day better... More topics to wonder talk and discuss...

    And when time comes, we as a group will shift as well to any place which is ours ( a back up plan is there.. it's under works)

    LOL... since you said that ... it reminded me of the panama leaks and how a pakistan new anchor called in an ex RAW DG and pestered him to accept that it was RAW hands in the leaks ie they hack the data base to insert the names. His reasoning was that lots of pakistani politicians was mentioned in the leaks, while from india , only one ex politician - why is that? when he says india is more corrupt

    Of course the Ex raw DG only laughed at him and said that if RAW had that capability to hack the data base - he would be very happy :biggthumpup:

    I'm surprised how PDF is allowed access to in India with the kind of inflammatory anti India propaganda that they carry .

    Surely ,it nay have been reported multiple times to the authorities out here .Why haven't the authorities here banned it is something that has me puzzled .

    More so given how random sites dedicated to news , current affairs or even the social media stirring up the pot results in unexpected violence across India at the drop of the hat !!

    PDF is banned with most ISPs in India but not all.

    For example, it's banned by Reliance communications but not Reliance Jio.

    It hasn't been banned by the GoI then .Why individuals ISP's don't carry it is the right question to be posed?

    It should have been banned a long time before. But Defence.pk is still accessible with Gio.

    Let Webmaster with idiot administrator like Horus and its party enjoy with the jokers as Indian such as Ashok and Singaporean guys, self masturbating and praising their Junk fighter planes. I would request @PARIKRAMA and other administrators to keep the strick rule of not allowing these fellow Pakistanis to promote any Jihadi and so called freedom fighters, aka Terrorist Pigs funded by Pakistan away from IDF.

    Discussing Defence matter is different things, which could not be tolerated with defaming our country, constitutions, democracy and our peoples representatives.

    I have also felt that more recently some 'agency' type hand was prominent there. Anything crtical of china would be immediately put down while any chinese member can talk trash to Indians. I did a test and said 'chinese plane will fall off sky because of low quality' and got an immediate ban. God knows the chinese members there say that about us all the time.
