    Pakistan has blocked Chinese social media app TikTok, claiming the company has not fully followed instructions to develop an effective content control mechanism

    In a statement, the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) said it took the plunge after receiving complaints about « immoral and indecent » content on the video-sharing platform

    The PTA said that given the complaints and the nature of the content regularly posted on TikTok, the company has received a final notice and has considerable time to respond and comply with instructions and guidelines.

    But TikTok « did not fully comply with PTA’s instructions », after which the authority decided to ban it in Pakistan

    Shortly after the ban, the app started showing an empty interface without loading any text or images

    The telecoms authority has kept the door open for a return of TikTok, saying « it is open to engagement » and would reconsider its decision if TikTok develops a mechanism to moderate content

    He has been the target of several complaints and legal petitions calling for his ban in Pakistan

    In July, PTA announced that it had issued a « final warning » to TikTok to remove « obscene and immoral content »

    The video sharing app, which is owned by ByteDance in China, is the third most downloaded app in the past year after WhatsApp and Facebook and has been downloaded nearly 39 million times in Pakistan
