Tiktok has 20 million users in Pakistan. Officials say an important reason behind the tiktok ban is pornography related to underage girls. Before the ban, tiktok received several warnings and was asked to regulate its content.
Pakistani officials denied that the ban had any political implications for the view that the app was banned to limit criticism of the government.
We are committed to strengthening community guidelines and complying with local laws in all markets as these are the pillars of our work to promote a safe and positive online community, tiktok parent company byte hop said in a statement on Monday
The decision to allow tiktok to resume operations in Pakistan has also been widely welcomed by the app user community, financial analysts said, adding that this will increase investor confidence.
