Pakistan Banned Tik-Tok for ‘Immoral’ Content

Pakistan has banned the social media app Tik-Tok for failing to filter out “immoral” content, three top government officials said on Friday.

Tik-Tok is a social media app that has been in trouble since India banned it over security issues on June 29.

Concerns have ranged from privacy and security concerns about the Chinese owners of the app to the nature of the content being shared.

Apart from Pakistan, India, Australia, and the USA have acted upon the social media app for its uncertain behavior.

“In view of a number of complaints from different segments of the society against immoral and indecent content on the video-sharing application TikTok, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has issued instructions for blocking the application,” it said in a statement.

The PTA said that it had issued a final notice to the company, in view of the “complaints and nature of the content being consistently posted on TikTok”.

The government issued a “final warning” to the company in July.

“But Tik-Tok is failed to show the effective mechanism for proactive moderation of unlawful online content”, the authority said, and so the Pakistan government banned the Tik-Tok app.
