TikTok restored in Pakistan

TikTok has been restored in Pakistan on Friday as PTA lifted the ban imposed on the video-sharing app four months ago.

As being reported, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Friday lifted the ban following the assurance of the app administration to remove unethical material on the platform.

Furthermore, the TikTok administration has assured the PTA to block accounts of users who upload illegal content.

The PTA has also shared the update in a series of tweets on Friday

The statement from the Authority said: “PTA has restored the services of TikTok on assurances of the Platform to control immoral/indecent content.

“Subsequent to the imposition of the ban on 20 July 2021, PTA remained in communications with the TikTok management.

“As a result of continuous engagement, senior management of the platform assured PTA of its commitment to take necessary measures to control unlawful content in accordance with local laws and societal norms.

“The company also assured that the users who are continuously involved in uploading unlawful content will be blocked from using the platform. Keeping in view the assurances, the Authority has decided to lift the ban on #TikTok forthwith.

“PTA will continue to monitor the platform in order to ensure that unlawful content contrary to Pakistan’s law and societal values is not disseminated.



The government had imposed a ban on the Chinese app TikTok on July 20, 2021, with a demand of removing and controlling the immoral content on the app from the administration.
