Pakistan revokes ban on TikTok

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has overturned the ban on TikTok for allowing ‘indecent and ‘immoral’ content after TikTok’s management assured the PTA  that they will block all accounts which are repeatedly involved in spreading obscenity and immorality.

The PTA had banned TikTok for failing to filter out ‘immoral and indecent’ content, after it issued a final warning in July 2020. Pakistan has media regulations adhering to conservative social customs which do not allow for dissemination of content considered ‘vulgar’.
