ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Monday announced strict measures against the social media platforms including TikTok and imposed a ban over the live-streaming app, Bigo.

The PTA, while taking measures against the video-sharing social media platforms, issued a final warning to the Tik Tok and banned the live-streaming app, Bigo, after receiving complaints about promotion of immoral, obscene, and vulgar content.

It blamed the apps for bringing negative effects on society in general and youth in particular.

A press release issued by the authority further read that the PTA issued notices to both the social media platforms to moderate the socialisation and content within the legal and moral limits, in accordance with the laws of the country.
