Pakistan Bans TikTok App

Once again, Pakistan has banned TikTok in the country after reviewing a complaint. Yesterday, the Pakistan Tele­com Authority (PTA) directed internet service providers to block access to TikTok app on immediate basis, and now the short video sharing ent­er­tainment app has become inaccessible in the country as it is blocked by the authority.

A high court in the city of Peshawar ordered the ban after a private complainant said the social media app was spreading indecent content. PHC Chief Justice Qaiser Rashid Khan released the directions.
