That's releasing on the 25th, no reason why they should block sites now. Also they were told that they could not block entire websites like that.

Here is what I have been told...
Reliance Broadband is incompatible with certain websites. One of them is Al Jazeera.
Al Jazeera is blocked by Reliance Broadband for technical reasons.
There are some technical issues that prevents us from allowing access to aljazeera.com.

the block is implemented through the reliance dns which is needed to access their login page.
