Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh), Nov 17 (ANI): To curb cases of rape and molestation in the country, a neurologist at the Institute of Medical Sciences of the Banaras Hindu University (IMS-BHU), along with his team, developed an application called ‘Har Har Mahadev`, which blocks unwanted sites, specially pornographic ones. Once installed, the app plays bhajans and devotional songs every time the user tries to open a porn site or any other site that is considered as 'inappropriate'. BHU Professor Dr Vijay Nath Mishra said that they have developed the website blocker and internet filtering services, so one can surf safely without any fear of opening adult or objectionable sites. The one-of-a-kind app took six months to be completed and can block about 3,800 identified sites. Named 'Har Har Mahadev', the app is designed to block pornographic, violent and vulgar content circulating on the World Wide Web.
