Peshawar High Court (PHC) has ordered Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to lift ban on Tik Tok.
A PHC bench comprising Chief Justice Qaiser Rashid Khan and Justice Ijaz Anwar lifted the 21-day ban on the app with the directive to PTA to ensure that no immoral or obscene content was uploaded on it.
The bench also instructed the PTA’s director general for web analysis, Kamran Khan, to take stringent steps against objectionable content on the TikTok App and submit a detailed progress report in this regard before May 25.
The bench was hearing a petition jointly filed by 40 residents of Peshawar, who had requested the court to direct the respondents, including PTA and the Federal Investigation Agency, to ban the app to the extent of violation of constitutional provisions that did not allow acts contrary to Islamic code of life.
In its earlier order the court had asked PTA to stop the uploading of objectionable material onto the platform.
