You have read about the opaque manner in which the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has gone about trying to block the URLs relating to IIPM.

It turns out that on the same day, on 14.02.2013, it also issued similar instructions about Facebook URLs relating to pages about Afzal Guru.

A copy of the order is available here and also appended below:
