Tik Tok issues statement following court verdict
After the decision by the Sindh High Court (SHC) to ban Tik Tok in Pakistan, the video-sharing Chinese application has issued a statement.
According to reports, following the request to ban Tik Tok, the Sindh High Court issued the verdict to block the social networking app. Meanwhile, the court sought a reply from the respective parties by the 8th of July.
Earlier, Petitioner Barrister Asad Ashfaq took a stand before the court that immoral and un-Islamic material was being presented on Tik Tok. He stated that he had complained to PTA, yet no action had been taken. The petitioner further said that the Peshawar High Court had also issued a warning that the PTA had not succeeded in removing the immoral material.
In lieu of the recent ban, a spokesperson for Tik Tok has issued a statement “The creativity and passion of our community has brought joy to households across Pakistan and provided a home for incredibly talented creators”.
The Spokesperson added, “We have grown our local-language moderation capacity for Pakistan, and work diligently to review and take action on content in violation of our Community Guidelines. We continue to work with regulators, and look forward to serving the millions of TikTok users and creators in Pakistan who have found a home for creativity, fun and vital economic opportunities for many years to come.”
