Tiktok Ban!!

Just two days after a ban was imposed on the Chinese video-sharing application in Pakistan, TikTok officials have approached Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) and agreed on an effective mechanism for negotiations that would curb “immoral or indecent content”.

PTA spokesperson Khurram Mehran said while there may be other reasons for a ban on the application in other countries, the reason it was banned in Pakistan was the “sharing of immoral content” due to the “absence of proactive moderation of unlawful online content”.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had blocked Chinese-owned video-sharing app TikTok after te company “failed to fully comply” with its instructions for “development of an effective mechanism for proactive moderation of unlawful online content”.

The PTA had said the step was taken after the authority received a number of complaints from different segments of society against “immoral and indecent” content on the video-sharing application.

“The application failed to fully comply with the instructions, therefore, directions were issued for blocking of TikTok application in the country.”
