Censorship by government is always an issue but blocking GitHub because some terrorists use it“Internet users in India are starting to lose to access websites including GitHub, Internet Archive, Pastebin, and Vimeo under an order from India’s DoT (Department of Telecom).” is throwing the baby out with the bath-water.

If India wants to go after terrorists, they should go after terrorists rather than crippling all the good works of society. That just does the terrorists’ work for them. This banning of sites just makes criminals of ordinary people as they find ways around the problem government creates.
