Fawad Chaudhry, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, reacting to the Sindh High Court’s orders to ban TikTok has expressed his dismay.

In a tweet, Fawad Chaudry slammed recent high court decisions banning the social media app TikTok as well as setting aside the appointment of the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) president and stressed the need for judicial reforms.

“If judicial reforms are not carried out, the country will never be able to get out of the economic crisis. Already the country is suffering billions of dollars in losses at the hands of such judicial activism,” he said in a tweet.

 

Earlier in the week, the Sindh High Court ordered the Pakistan Telecommu­nica­tion Authority (PTA) to suspend access to TikTok in the country until July 8.

“TikTok had not abided by the constant undertakings and assurances given by it before various courts and the PTA to block accounts spreading vulgarity,” the court stated in its orders.
