News Summary - SC refuses urgent listing of plea challenging Madras High Court order banning downloading of TikTok app
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on April 8 refused urgent listing of a plea challenging the recent Madras High Court order banning downloading of the 'TikTok' app over concerns of pornographic content.
A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said the plea will come up for hearing in due course of time.
The Madras High Court had on April 3 directed the Centre to ban mobile application 'TikTok' as it voiced concern that "pornographic and inappropriate content" were made available through such apps.
It had passed the interim order on a public interest litigation (PIL) petition which sought to ban Tik Tok on the grounds that it allegedly contained content that "degraded culture and encouraged pornography."
