 SHC withdraws ban on video-sharing app Tiktok

KARACHI, 2 July: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday withdrew a ban on the popular short-form video sharing application TikTok.

A bench of SHC directed the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to unblock the app in the country.

The court withdrew the ban on a request by the telecommunication regulator that assured the court that it would decide the petitioner’s plea until July 5.

On June 28, the SHC had ordered the authorities concerned to impose a ban on the video streaming app over immoral content.

The court issued the directives while hearing a petition against immoral content allegedly being uploaded to the app.
