Chinese social media and video creation app TikTok has been taken off of the Google Play Store and Apple App Store in India following a directive by the Supreme Court to stay the ban on the app. TikTok was banned by the Madras High Court in India earlier this month, following a petition which alleged that the platform pomotes and encourages pornography, child abuse, and suicide. A stay was sought by the app makers on the ban order in the Supreme Court, which was denied by the apex authority. Following the SC judgement, The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) directed Google and Apple to remove TikTok from their respective app stores and the two tech giants have indeed followed MeitY’s order.
