Earlier, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Friday placed a ban on TikTok in the country as different segments of society continued to complain against indecent/immoral short video sharing through the Chinese app. The telecom regulator issued instructions to relevant officials for blocking the application in the wake of the nature of content being consistently shared on TikTok and the subsequent complaints against it. PTA had issued a final notice to the application in July and gave considerable time to respond and comply with PTA’s instructions for development of effective mechanism for “proactive moderation” of unlawful online content. The press release issued by the telecom regulator stated that the application (TikTok) had failed to fully comply with the instructions, therefore, directions were issued for blocking of the application in the country.
