The app is expected to give relief to uncountable number of online users who face onslaught of trash and misinformation on the internet.

A neurologist at Institute of Medical Sciences of Banaras Hindu University (IMS-BHU) and his team have developed an application namely ‘Har Har Mahadev’ that will block unwanted websites including pornographic ones. The app is expected to give relief to countless online users who face onslaught of trash and misinformation on the internet.

The application will help block violence and vulgar content that is circulated on the world wide web.

While in use, the application will start playing devotional songs whenever any internet user mistakenly or otherwise opens any ‘inappropriate’ site. “We have developed the website blocker and internet filtering services, so one can surf safely without any fear of opening adult or objectionable sites,” said Dr Vijay Nath Mishra of Institute of Medical Sciences- Banaras Hindu University’s neurology department.

Dr Mishra further said that it took them around six months to develop this app which has capability to block about 3,800 identified sites.

“We will update it further as more and more unwanted sites are cropping up daily,” said Mishra

Currently there is only one devotional song uploaded to the app, more songs would be added soon, he said.

Mishra said they will add devotional songs from other religions as well and the work is underway to upgrade the app.

Other than the app, Mishra’s name also figures in making of movies on cardiac arrest and its management to spread awareness in the society.
