Mumbai Police registers complaint against TikTok ‘celebrities’ for inciting violence through social media

Contrary to media reports, their accounts are not yet suspended. 

The Mumbai Police cyber cell has registered a complaint against the group of TikTok ‘influencers’ who had propagated revenge over Tabrez Ansari’s death.

According to the reports, Shiv Sena activist Ramesh Solanki filed a complaint against TikTok group named ‘Team 07’ consisting – Faisal Shaikh, Hasnain Khan, Faiz Baloch, Adnan Shaikh and Sadhan Faroqui, who have a combined followers strength of over four crore people.

In a video uploaded in Tik Tok, the group had propagated revenge against people over 22-year-old Jharkhand man Tabrez Ansari’s death. “You may have killed that innocent Tabrez Ansari, but tomorrow if his son takes revenge, do not say that all Muslims are terrorists,” the video claimed.

The videos went viral after they were shared on social media. As soon as it became viral, Solanki registered a complaint, stating that the video talks about how “the public at large may have killed Tabrez, but if tomorrow, his progeny exercises revenge then he mustn’t be a called a ‘Muslim Terrorist’.
“Not only does it pass judgement as to a matter still subjudice, but it also seems to justify acts of terrorism and is clearly inciting the next of kin of the victims of lynchings to take to terrorism to achieve justice. These guys are justifying violence and terrorism, sending a wrong message to the masses,” Solanki added.
Meanwhile, taking note of the videos, TikTok has removed the video from its app calling it a “violation of their community guidelines.” It further said that it will continue to take appropriate action against such videos. Contrary to media reports, their accounts are not yet suspended.
The case has been registered under sections 153(A) and 34 of Indian Penal code (IPC) at Mumbai’s LT Marg Police station.
