Pakistan blocks famous Social Media App TikTok over ‘Indecent’ content

Chinese Social Media app TikTok has been blocked by Pakistan’s Telecommunications Authority (PTA) on Friday for failing to filter out the immoral and indecent content. The app has remained quite popular amongst the younger generation and as per an analytics firm, it had been installed over 43 million times in Pakistan. That makes Pakistan the 12th largest market for the company.

The ban is the result of the company’s compliance with the Pakistani government’s concerns. PTA has confirmed that they will review their decision subjected to a satisfactory mechanism by TikTok. Recently, the app was blocked in India; its largest market and is facing a threat of being banned in the United States and reconsideration in countries like Australia.

Five dating apps, including Tinder and Grinder, were also blocked by the PTA in the last month. Over these bans, Pakistani digital rights activists believe that these decisions undermine the government’s dream of a Digital Pakistan.
