The Monday refused urgent listing of a plea challenging the recent Madras High Court order banning downloading of the 'TikTok' over concerns of pornographic content.

A bench headed by Chief Justice said the plea will come up for hearing in due course of time.

The Madras High Court had on April 3 directed the Centre to ban mobile application 'TikTok' as it voiced concern that "pornographic and inappropriate content" were made available through such apps.

It had passed the interim order on a (PIL) petition which sought to ban Tik Tok on the grounds that it allegedly contained content that "degraded culture and encouraged pornography".
