KATHMANDU: The Supreme Court (SC) will begin today the proceedings on the petition challenging the government’s decision to ban the popular social networking platform, TikTok.

Senior advocate Dinesh Tripathi, along with advocates Swagat Nepal, Jagannath Dulal, and others, had earlier filed petitions at the SC against the ban.

All writs related to the ban on TikTok were consolidated for a unified hearing on the first day of the court’s session, following the government’s decision to prohibit the social networking site.

A total of 10 writ petitions have been filed against the government’s decision to ban TikTok in Nepal.

The Council of Ministers’ meeting last November 13 had decided to ban the video-sharing platform in Nepal.

The petitioners in their writ have demanded to rescind the decision to ban TikTok, according to Govinda Ghimire, Deputy Spokesperson at the Supreme Court.

Almost of the internet service providers in the country stopped running TikTok since the decision.

The writ petitions came in wake of the ban of the popular App-TikTok.

The ban was enforced citing the disturbance in the social harmony, many cases against public decency and lack of cooperation from the TikTok Company in the process of minimization of the crime and prosecution of criminals among others.
