Islamabad previously said that the app has an obligation. “to moderate the socialisation and content within legal and moral limits” as per existing Pakistani laws. The telecommunications regulatory body of Pakistan issue a notice back in July, stating it was a “final warning” to the ByteDance-owned app. Urging TikTok to “put in place a comprehensive mechanism to control obscenity, vulgarity, and immorality through its social media application”.
Some celebrities considered Tik Tok a cancer for our society. And other thought its a way to promote creativity. Our Prime Minister Imran Khan also spoke against the app. And now finally it is banned in Pakistan.
According to news the ban will be implemented on Tiktok from today.
