National Commission for Women chairperson Rekha Sharma is against the use of TikTok in India and she plans to write to the Government with the demand to ban social media.
Sharma in a tweet today said, “I am of the strong opinion that this @TikTok_IN should be banned totally and will be writing to GOI. It not only has these objectionable videos but also pushing youngsters towards unproductive life where they are living only for few followers and even dying when the numbers decline.”
Sharma had yesterday written to Maharashtra DGP and to TikTok India to remove a video of TikToker Faizal Siddiqui who was seen promoting acid attack in an act.
Today another TikTok video surfaced in which two young boys, appearing juveniles, are seen glorifying rape.
Although Siddiqui’s video was removed yesterday after Sharma’s intervention the NCW chief said the social media platform must be banned for the irresponsible behaviour it was encouraging and for the complete disregard for the nature of the content being peddled through TikTok.
