Why Tik Tok has been banned in India?
After Madras High Court put a ban on this app, the popular sharing app has vanished from Google and Apple app stores in India. The Madras high court had requested to put a ban on this app as they showed some inappropriate content that can potentially be dangerous for youth and can destroy young minds. There should be a law regarding this type of apps.
Why only ban Tik Tok, ban all the other social media sites for teenagers that are destroying our youth. Because everyone knows that these sites are harmful to our society.
Recently in October, the government has banned all porn sites all over r the country. This move was not appreciated by majority of youth, but this move helped the teenagers to divert their minds in goodwill. But still, they banned for some reason.
The only thing is to safeguard our youth from all these harmful social media sites.
Similarly, if Tiktok is harming the youth then it also has to be banned, it’s just a waste of time and misusing the social platform for a bad cause.
Government Action against Tiktok
The government strictly ordered Google and apple to remove the app from play stores. Google immediately blocked the access to Tik Tok download from its play store in India to comply with the court orders.
The government said in a statement that it does not comment on the individual app but adheres to local laws.
