A TikTok phenomenon in India recently posted a video to encourage acid attacks on women. The video, which was welcomed by women’s organizations, caused the TikTok, which was previously banned in India, to be discussed again in the country.
TikTok, one of the popular social media networks, is criticized as much as it is liked. A new video shared on TikTok, which hosts interesting trends, caused the social media network to be discussed once again in India.
Faisal Siddiqui, who has more than 1 million followers in TikTok, recently shared a video on TikTok, where he threw acid to women who did not accept the relationship offer. The video shared by Siddiqui was met with reaction especially by women.
Tags asking to ban TikTok became an agenda on Twitter
After the video that reacted, campaigns started in order to ban TikTok as well as the removal of the video on different social media networks. BanTikTokIndia and Acid tags, which demand that TikTok be banned in India, were among the trending topics on Twitter.
Among those who reacted to Faisal Siddiqui’s video is the President of the Indian National Commission, Rekha Sharma. Sharma announced that BJP MLA Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga reported the controversial video to TikTok India and complained.
TikTok is not the first time for discussion in India
The first problem of TikTok in India is not the video of Faisal Siddiqui. TikTok, which has millions of users in India, has caused controversy since it was launched in the country.
Some time after TikTok’s launch in India, the Madras Supreme Court was banned in the country because it degraded the social media network, the culture of India, promoted pornography, had disturbing content and spread currents that would cause medical problems among young people.
TikTok lost $ 500,000 daily and nearly 2 million users during his banned time in India.
The TikTok debate in India seems to continue for a long time. BanTikTokIndia, the Twitter tag used by those who want to ban TikTok in the country, has been on the agenda on Twitter for two months.
