TikTok Ban - PHC orders PTA for immediate ban of Tiktok

TikTok, a popular social networking website with the posting of videos, was hit by a further ban on Thursday following the order from the Peshawar High Court (PHC).

The commonly used App was for the second time banned in Pakistan.


Qaiser Rashid Khan, Chief Justice of the PHC, issued the instructions in his petition to the citizen demanding a ban on Tiktok. The PHC Chief Justice said at the hearing that TikTok videos "do not suit Pakistani society."

The judge also shared his dissatisfaction with the reports he received from TikTok. Chief Justice Qaisar Rashid Khan directed "Tik Tok videos spread vulgarity. The app should be takedown immediately."

In October last year, the PTA had imposed Tiktok prohibition, after the company had "failed to properly fulfill" its instructions to "establish an appropriate method in which illegal content could be productively discussed."

The PTA said at the time the decision took on the "immoral and indecent" contents of the video-sharing sites, after receiving many reports from different groups of society.


The next month, after TikTok's advising of the company's "blocking all accounts regularly committed to obscenity and immorality," the PTA reversed its decision.
