The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has issued instructions to impose a ban on the highly popular video-sharing app TikTok after receiving a “number of complaints from different segments of the society,” the regulatory body said in a press statement on Friday.
According to the press release, several complaints were made “against immoral/indecent content” that was shared on the app.
PTA said it had earlier issued a “final notice” to TikTok and gave the application “considerable time to respond and comply with” instructions for development of an effective mechanism for proactive moderation of “unlawful online content”.
