Ban TikTok mobile application: Ramadoss

‘Users are uploading suggestive, sexual content’

PMK founder S. Ramadoss on Tuesday demanded that the TikTok mobile application be banned to stop the “cultural degradation” it has triggered in society.

In a statement, Dr. Ramadoss said the mobile application was being used without any regulation. “When the application was introduced, it gave young people a chance to showcase their singing and dancing talents. But it is sad to see youngsters so engrossed in the application,” he said.

Dr. Ramadoss said TikTok’s users were uploading suggestive sexual dance choreography.

“If a sexually explicit video gets traction online, the users would upload even more explicit videos to double the attention [they get],” he said.

He added that several countries, including Indonesia, the United States and France, had raised concerns about the impact the application was having on teenagers’ minds.
