On Monday, an interim order passed by Madras High Court calling for a ban on the mobile application ‘Tik Tok’ was challenged in the Supreme Court. Chief Justice of India, Ranjan Gogoi said he will look into the app to understand the necessity of ban. However, since morning, the CJI got busy watching the videos on Tik Tok only to get addicted to the app himself.
Tik Tok is a media app for creating and sharing short videos. Tik Tok is not limited to teens aping celebrities but is simultaneously generating revenue and joblessness in millions. A petition was filed in Madras High Court to get the app banned and which was upheld and then challenged in the Supreme Court again.
The CJI and the other senior judges of Supreme Court have cancelled the hearing of all the pending cases including the Ram Mandir case, for the next five days and have locked themselves in a room to concentrate on the Tik Tok app verdict. If sources are to be believed, laughing sounds interspersed with chuckles can be heard from outside the room where the bench is conducting the hearing
