TikTok, the video-sharing platform is yet again banned in Pakistan!

Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday has ordered to ban the video-sharing app TikTok across the country.,

The orders come nearly three months after the country — for the second time — had lifted a ban imposed on it.

Earlier in the day, an application was filed in the Supreme Court seeking a ban on Tiktok.

The SHC’s ruling came during a hearing, where the court issued a notice to the attorney general of Pakistan and directed him to follow the orders and get the app banned.

The petitioner’s lawyer said Peshawar High Court had earlier banned TikTok as some videos uploaded on the platform are “immoral and against the teachings of Islam.”

The lawyer said his client had approached the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) before moving the court, however, the PTA did not do anything in this regard.

An application was filed by a person named Ali Zeb, a resident of Pakpattan. 

In which he stated that TikTok was promoting crime, with people using drugs and weapons and uploading videos, while the use of TikTok in educational institutions was leading to a bad environment for the students 

The court has summoned the parties involved in the case on July 8.
