The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has decided to lift the ban on the Chinese video-sharing app, TikTok. In a tweet, PTA says that the TikTok administration assured that they would block accounts for sharing immoral and indecent content on the app. Previously, the app was banned in Pakistan by PTA for “obscenity” and “immorality.”
According to the PTA, the app will take strict action in the form of blocking users who would have repeatedly involved in sharing “obscenity” and “immorality.” Henceforth, TikTok will be overseeing the content of its account users, whether it is in line with the state’s law or not.
The decision of PTA has been received with mixed reviews among the community of the Twitterati.
For some, it’s good news that ensures more freedom of expression.
Another user held this decision of PTA as similar to “Abba Maan Gay.” A sigh of relief!
