To begin with, Internet and its applications are playing a vital role in our life, in a positive method, on the other hand it's negative methods are putting an detrimental effect. Many opine that it is undoubtedly important, through which our current and future generation establish significant knowledge for wellbeing of self and our society, while several others argue that it is pushing youngsters to the path of cultural degeneration. However, both are irrefutably true and we need to solve this time immemorial issue by slaying the negative effects and improve the positive side of it. 

It has been seen that the government of many nations are taking initiatives to  take stringent steps against those who misuse those apps. For an instance, last year, the Indonesian government banned the app 'TikTok' after over 170,000 people signed a petition saying the platform wasn't suitable for kids. The ban, however was lifted after 'TikTok' representatives Promised to weed out inappropriate content. Likewise, there are several other apps which had to go through a lawsuit and later put a restriction to it. Our government is also, with help of our countrymen, taking such steps to improve our society and make it free from illegal and impious activities.

Lately, Madras High Court asks the centre to ban the app 'TikTok' for ''encouraging pornography''. To which, the social media platform said it will abide by the local laws and regulations and will take action against misuse. They claim that maintaining a safe and positive in-app environment is their priority, they have robust measures to protect users against misuse. My question is, despite of so much laws and protective environment, why is still there misuage of this app and why are some users dauntlessly inciting pornography!? 

For this reason, there was a public interest litigation against the app made to Madras High Court for banning the app because children who are using 'TikTok' Were vulnerable to exposure to sexual predators. ''Inappropriate'' content was 'TikTok's' dangerous aspect. Also, there is a possibility of the children contacting strangers directly. TikTok has been criticised in the US  for exposing young girls to caustic comments and other potential abuse by their peers. It has become hugely popular in Rural India. In addition, there are many young girls flaunting their cleavage, naval and their body just to get some followers and views. I ask, why to sell modesty to those who only care about their body? Girls who aren't able to make it to silver screen, are the ones who showcase their acting skills in this platform, but in order to do that they are unaware of the fact that, there are many crooks and swindlers has their eye on them who are in constant hunt. Who lure them with a promise to fame and money. 

Neverthless, banning the app wouldn't be a solution to this problem as a matter of fact is that Internet itself is a massive platform for its misuse. However, putting a restriction to it with some parental control can considerably reduce the negative effect and for the young adults they need to limit themselves in order to avoid being a victim of some heinous crime.

So, let's change the way we use it, let's use it for a good cause and in a productive manner, lets keep ourselves busy and motivate our friends and family members who are lifeless, misleaded and using the app just to kill time. It's matter of our integrity, culture and future generations.

I pledge to all the Parents to sign this petition so that the App provider and representatives can put a restriction and limited access for kids and save them from getting into a trap of misleading strangers. Also, I would ask all the young adults who care for their sisters and friends, to sign this petition and spread it so that the government can take some stringent measures to reduce the negative impact and abolish not only pornography acts but also have a check on those fake profiles and delete them from using 'TikTok' and stop luring our friends and family members. 

✌�️Peace.
