The Supreme Court will hear the petition on the petition challenging the verdict ordering the Center to ban its download on pornographic material available on the tickcops of the Madras High Court. On Monday, the Supreme Court refused to hear the petition promptly.
The Madras High Court had ordered the ban on its download of pornographic material available on the app. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi had said that the petition will be heard at the right time. The Madras High Court had directed the Center to ban the ‘Tic Talk’ app, referring to providing obscene and inappropriate content through the app on April 3.
The court had issued an interim order on the basis of that PIL , In which it was demanded to ban the tick-talk on the ground that it allegedly contained content that would “insult the culture and promote pornography” Apart from this, the court had said that the government also blocked the tick-talk video from sharing on other social media platforms such as Facebook. Tick talk videos have always been complaining about obscene material.
The court had asked the government whether it would bring such a law that could save children from cyber crime and keep them away from it.
