The chinese app, ‘tiktok’ has been receiving a lot of criticism lately by the people of our country. This started when a video went viral of a well known tiktoker by the name of Faizal Siddiqui. In his video, he was seen promoting acid attacks. After this, many more such videos surfaced online in which acts like rape, terrorism,domestic abuse and animal cruelty were being glorified. Enraged by this, people started trending hashtags like #TikTokExposed and #BanTikTokIndia on twitter. Many celebrities and well known personalities also took part in this trend. One such celebrity is veteran actor, Paresh Rawal, who tweeted only three words, ‘BAN TIK TOK.’

National Commission for Women’s chief Rekha Sharma also demanded for a ban on the app, saying, “Tiktok is pushing youngsters towards unproductive life.” Aditi Raval, Kushal Tandon, Sona Mohapatra and many more such celebrities are also in support of TikTok banning in India.
