TikTok, a popular short video-sharing app, has removed nearly 60 lakh videos for violating content guidelines in India. The development comes days after Central government issued notices to the social media platform along with a set of 24 questions over its alleged misuse for ‘anti-national activities’ in the country.

Speaking to Times of India, Sachin Sharma, Director (Sales and Partnerships) at TikTok said. “We are committed to maintaining a safe and positive in-app environment for our users to showcase their creativity and talent. TikTok in no way endorses or promotes content that is in violation of our community guidelines.”

The deleted videos were tagged as spreading wrong messages in the society in some way, the videos were considered to be increasing communal issues. By removing these videos, TikTok has given the right message. It has made it clear that such behavior and producing content related to communal issues will not be extinguished at any cost.

TikTok’s parent company, Beijing Bytedance Technology Co. has said that “we give our users the opportunity to show their creativity and talent, but we do not support or promote any kind of content that is against the community guidelines. There are more than 20 million TikTok users in India. Every day, the number of users and the quantity of traffic is increasing and we are regularly examining the content to make it adhere to the community guidelines”.
