PTA again warns TikTok over ‘vulgar and objectionable content’ as ban officially lifted


The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has once again warned TikTok over “vulgar and objectionable content” on the platform after a court in the northwestern city of Peshawar ordered the ban on the short-form video service be officially lifted.

The ban on TikTok was the second time the Pakistani authorities had sanctioned the app — owned by China’s ByteDance — after restricting it back in October 2020. The latest development comes almost a month after the Peshawar High Court (PHC) had directed the state-run telecom authority to “immediately block access” to the service.
