Pakistan bans TikTok again for failure to filter ‘immoral’ content

Islamabad: Pakistan’s telecoms regulator said Wednesday it was banning TikTok for the third time in less than a year.
The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said in a statment the Chinese-owned video-sharing platform failed to implement an earlier order to filter “immoral and obscene” content and take down inappropriate content. The authority said it had warned TikTok to filter such content but the application had failed to abide by the instructions.
Pakistan first banned the app last year in compliance with a court order in response to public complaints of alleged vulgarity on the app. The ban was later lifted after reported diplomatic interference by the Chinese government and an assurance by the platform to filter its content. (dpa)
