Applications for the inference of unethical, offensive, and indecent material were made by the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA), the Chief Justice of PHC, Qaiser Rashid Khan, ordered that access to TikTok be blocked in Pakistan;

At a hearing yesterday in Peshawar High Court, DG PTA, Kamran Khan, said that in Pakistan, the PTA does not have a TikTok Bureau that monitors or limits its contents. "PTA held several talks with the management of Tik Tok, but each meeting was in vain," DG PTA added.

Mr. Qaiser, Peshawar High Court Court judge has instructed that access to TikTok remain suspended until proper monitoring and control of content by its administration is carried out to eradicate unfair content in Pakistan in advance of the next hearing on 6 April.


In October of the last year, PTA had banned the video-sharing platform of TikTok to promote lewd, insufficient immorally vulgar contents in Pakistan after receiving a large number of complaints from different social groups, but the government ordered the re-launch of TikTok after the TikTok administration had reached an agreement.
