Islamabad (AP) — Pakistan’s media regulator on Friday lifted the ban on TikTok again four months later, with guarantees to control the spread of vulgar content from popular Chinese video sharing services. ..
The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority has imposed and lifted such a ban for the fourth time in the last 15 months.
Pakistan is very popular among Pakistani teens and young adults in October 2020 because it was described as a widespread complaint about the app’s “immoral, obscene and vulgar” content. Blocked TikTok first.
Regulators said in a Twitter statement that TikTok has guaranteed that users who upload “illegal content” to Pakistan will also be blocked. Owned by ByteDance in China, this app has been downloaded about 39 million times in Pakistan.
Pakistan, which has close ties with China, has called on TikTok to develop effective mechanisms for managing illegal content.
Over the years, Pakistan has forwarded hundreds of content complaints to Facebook and Twitter, claiming that it could be aggressive and insulting to Islam, which violates Pakistan’s law.
In 2008, Pakistan banned YouTube with a video depicting the Prophet Muhammad. Muslims generally believe that the physical depiction of Islamic prophets is blasphemous.
