PTA Bans TikTok Again

Islamabad: The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority on Wednesday announced it had blocked ByteDance’s video-sharing platform TikTok in the country over “inappropriate content”.

“In the light of relevant provisions of Prevention of Electronic Crimes Act 2016, PTA has blocked access to TikTok App and website in the country,” the telecom regulator said.

“The action has been taken due to continuous presence of inappropriate content on the platform and its failure to take such content down,” the telecommunication authority added.

This is the fourth time that the government has interrupted — blocked or suspended — TikTok’s services in the country due to the content shared on the platform.
