The Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Thursday lifted the ban on popular video-sharing application TikTok and directed the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to take steps to ensure that "immoral content" is not uploaded to the platform.
"Peshawar High Court has suspended the operation of single bench judgement, ban on TikTok has been lifted," tweeted Fawad Chaudhry
The minister said Pakistan should be careful while taking decisions that may cause harm to the economic future of the country. "We need a framework to encourage international companies to make Pakistan their investment hub," said the minister.
At the last hearing, the telecom regulator had informed the court that it had blocked access to around 500,000 objectionable videos on TikTok.
