Blogspot being blocked in India?

It appears that blogspot.com is being blocked by some ISPs in India.

It is not clear why. It is not clear if this is a fallout of the Mumbai blasts.

Latest news on this available here:

The BBC claims here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/5194172.stm
that it is only anti-left and pro-Hindu sites that have been banned. I wouldn't be surprised if that is the case; however, BBC being what it is, we need confirmation. Have you heard about this?

Also, I have a link to your blog from mine. Is that ok?

In the world-wide-web any link is legitimate.

I read that dalitstan.org was one of the sites banned. That would count as anti-Hindu, as far as I know. The government shouldn't be banning anything.
