Tik Tok banned in India : TikTok download has been blocked by Apple and Google.
The option to download TikTok, a popular video-sharing app, has vanished from Google and Apple app stores in India after the Madras High Court banned its downloads, in setback for its Chinese developer Bytedance Technology's efforts to tap India's growing internet content market. Users still looking to download Tik Tok, have been reported to be looking for 'TikTok download' and 'Tik Tok apk' online to gain access to the app. TikTok ban alsotriggered a series of jokes and memes on social media.
Downloading TikTok allows users to create and share short videos with special effects which are hugely popular in India but conservative pressure groups and politicians say its content is inappropriate.
The high court in Tamil Nadu asked the government on April 3 to ban TikTok downloads, saying it encouraged pornography and warning that sexual predators could target child users.
The government sent a letter requesting Apple and Google to follow the state court's order and not allow TikTok download, according to an IT ministry official.
Google blocked access to TikTok download in its Play store in India to comply with the court's directive, a person with direct knowledge told Reuters on Tuesday. TikTok app was not available for download in the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store on Wednesday.
Google said in a statement it does not comment on individual apps but adheres to local laws. Apple did not respond to requests for comment.
A spokesman for TikTok in India declined to comment on the app's removal, saying the matter was still in the courts.
The company had faith in the judicial system and was "optimistic about an outcome that would be well received by" its millions of users in India, he added.
What is TikTok Download?
TikTok had been downloaded more than 240 million times in India, app analytics firm Sensor Tower said in February. More than 30 million users installed the app in January 2019, 12 times more than in the same month last year.
Jokes, clips and footage related to India's thriving movie industry dominate the app's platform, along with memes and videos in which youngsters, some scantily clad, lip-sync and dance to popular music.
Bytedance challenged the court's ban order in the Supreme Court last week, saying it went against freedom of speech rights.
The top court had referred the case back to the state court, where a judge on Tuesday rejected Bytedance's request to put the ban order on hold, K. Neelamegam, a lawyer arguing against Bytedance in the case, said.opti
The state court has requested written submissions from Bytedance in the case and has scheduled its next hearing for April 24. Till then TikTok download is unlikely to reappear.
In its Supreme Court filing, Bytedance argued that a "very minuscule" proportion of TikTok content was considered inappropriate or obscene.
The company employs more than 250 people in India and had plans for more investment as it expands the business, it said.

And you thought nothing is free in this world!
Human beings are born to be free. Freedom is a perception to every single person. It is a concept to every one. Freedom is ability, it is a feeling. Freedom may be physical, mental or social. We lead everyday life with some basic question in our mind. At least once these questions have crossed every person's life i.e “Who we are?”, “What are we made of?”, “Are we really Free?”. Perhaps thousands of years have passed we are still searching for the answer.
Who are we?
Who we are? What makes us? That is the question of millennium. The simple answer is 'we are human being'. We have evolved from cro magnon through biological evolution. But are just human , just another species!? In my opinion we are more than just another species,we are unique. Everyone of us has different physical structure, different behaviour,different perceptions, different feelings, various cultural background and appearance. Nature has made us what we are today. In us each egg and sperm contains 23 chromosomes and when sperm penetrates an egg 23 chromosomes pairs with another 23 to produce 46 chromosmes. Each chromosomes carries genes,segment of DNA. DNA synthesizes protein, that is what makes us.
What are we made of?
From the dawn of the time, we have questioned ourselves. 'who are we?', 'what are we made of?'. I think these questions do not have any definitive answer. It is the matter of individual's perceptions of their life. In my opinion everybody is made of the belief of their own. I was brought up into a Hindu family. No one is born with their own belief. Beliefs are fed to people with time. In our world everything was supposed to be the same, but due to different religion, beliefs, culture that has not been possible. As I was growing up I was raised Hindu. But it was not my belief, it was fed to me. We should not let anyone else to take decision in our life, we must take the bull by the horns. Life is what we make of it.
Human beings have the ability to do whatever they wist to do. We have the power of our own destiny. We have resources, ability, and potential . So we must make our own belief. Only the belief will make us what we really are.
Are we really free?
As human beings, we really like the idea of 'freedom', being 'free'. But what is freedom? The answer has various form and means. Freedom is an idea, practice. Freedom is the act of free mind. Freedom is a bird flying in the sky without the fear of being shot down . Freedom is the ability to decide the course of my daily schedule and overall life course. Lastly freedom is having what is rightfully yours.
Now the question, are we really free, in my view in most of the forms we are not really free. We are bound by some rules set by others irrespective good or bad. As we are indian citizen, if you don't take our newly formed laws and rules into account, most of our acts are inspired by British acts. British ruled our country for more than 200 years in a way that they only trained us , they did not educate us. So how could we have our own view. Everything are inspired by them. Here 'inspired' is mostly in 'negative' way. Everything they had done in our country was for their own good. Article 10 of our constitution provide us freedom. But i don't take it into account. I am not talking about individual's freedom, I am talking about freedom on a whole. For that kind of freedom our life will be worth living. Till one single person is oppressed , one single community is repressed, we are not free, the genuine meaning of freedom is farce. We can't enjoy our freedom till someone is deprived of it.
Freedom is our birth right. Human have born with freedom. But according to our constitution everybody has the right to be free, but we don't live into the short boundary of constitution, do we? We live in our real world. Being free is not easy, but it is not difficult also, we have to achieve it in long run.
