Peshawar High Court orders ban on TikTok

PESHAWAR: (HRNW) The Peshawar High Court (PHC) ordered on Thursday the authorities concerned to impose a ban on the popular short-video sharing app TikTok.

A PHC bench, headed by Chief Justice Qaiser Rashid Khan, called for a ban to be imposed on the app from today.

“Videos being uploaded on TikTok are unacceptable to our society,” the chief justice remarked while hearing a petition seeking directives for the government to block unethical and immoral content on the application.

“TikTok videos are peddling vulgarity in society,” he said and ordered that this app be blocked immediately.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) director general told the court that the authority approached the TikTok management to have objectionable and indecent content removed but to no avail.
