The matter was initially raised in the Madras High Court which banned the app via an interim order without providing an opportunity to TikTok for defending itself.  Later, the matter was brought to the Indian Supreme Court where the Tiktok owners argued for a stay on the ban and asserted that it cannot be held liable for actions of third parties on the platform. The app was like any other social media platform and added that singling out TikTok was discriminatory.


Authorities stated that the app had provided access to pornographic content which was detrimental to the youth of the country
