The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has restored the services of TikTok after the video-sharing platform assured that it will control “immoral/indecent content”. The ban has been lifted after facing suspension of 5 months.

“Subsequent to imposition of ban on 20 July 2021, PTA remained in communications with the TikTok management. As a result of continuous engagement, senior management of the platform assured PTA of its commitment to take necessary measures to control unlawful content in accordance with local laws and societal norms,” read a statement issued by the PTA on Friday.

“PTA will continue to monitor the platform in order to ensure that unlawful content contrary to Pakistan’s law and societal values is not disseminated,” it continued.

Earlier this month, TikTok and the PTA officials had discussed content moderation on the networking app that would make its content comply with local laws and customs.
