Pakistan Bans TikTok Over “Immoral” Content

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority on Friday blocked the Chinese video-sharing app TikTok, citing “immoral and indecent” content. The Chinese app has already been banned by India and is facing a number of issue in the United States.

According to a press release, TikTok failed to filter out “immoral and indecent”.

The Chinese video-sharing app failed to comply with Pakistan’s guidelines for “development of an effective mechanism for proactive moderation of unlawful online content”.

The step was taken after receiving numerous complaints from distinct segments of the society against unethical and lewd content on the video-sharing application.

According to PTA, the Chinese app was given “considerable time” to respond and comply with instructions to effectively moderate “unlawful online content”, failing which the necessary steps were taken.

The instruction from Pakistan Authority arrives months after its adjacent country, India, banned TikTok, Shein, Hugo and 56 other apps developed by Chinese firms over cybersecurity concerns.
