PTA guides provider to prohibit TikTok
Last month, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had directed the nation’s service providers to block users’ access to video-sharing application TikTok according to the court’s orders.
The PHC had ordered Pakistani authorities to immediately prohibit the video-sharing platform in the nation.
“In considerate compliance to the orders of the Peshawar High Court, PTA has released instructions to the provider to quickly obstruct access to the TikTok App,” the PTA said.
The orders were issued by PHC Principal Justice Qaiser Rashid Khan, who was listening to a request submitted by a person seeking a restriction on Tiktok.
This was the 2nd time that the commonly utilized App was outlawed in Pakistan.
In October of last year, the PTA had obstructed the Chinese-owned video-sharing application after the business “failed to totally conform” with its guidelines for “growth of a reliable mechanism for positive small amounts of illegal on the internet web content”.
