The ban has been imposed over presence of indecent material on the application.

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Wednesday has banned famous social media application TikTok across the country.

The ban has been imposed over presence of indecent material on the application. TikTok management has not taken any step to remove the material, PTA stated.

The app has a huge fan base in Pakistan, where many people use it to market and sell goods online.

In June, TikTok said it had removed more than six million videos available to Pakistan users in just three months following complaints from officials and ordinary users.

Officials have previously asked YouTube to block content they deem objectionable.
