PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has lifted the ban on tickets and ordered the launch of a nationwide tik-tok app.
Chief Justice Qaiser Rasheed Khan had remarked that if the videos uploaded on the ticket book are not accepted by society, then it is fine. However, a bench headed by Chief Justice of Peshawar High Court Qaiser Rashid held a re-hearing today in which GTPTAB appeared before the court to inquire into the removal of immoral material after the ban on tickets.

The PTA spokesperson said the TikTok management has assured the authority that it will block all accounts repeatedly involved in spreading obscenity and immorality and moderate content in accordance with local laws. The authority has not announced whether the app will be unblocked immediately.
“We have talked to the ticket administration. It has said that whoever makes a mistake, again and again, has been blocked. The court said that if the PTI takes action,”
he said. So people will not upload videos. We have to build the good and the bad
“This shouldn’t be a one-time thing. You should take further steps to stop objectionable content on TikTok,” the judge said.
PTA lawyer Jehanzeb Mehsud replied that there were some sites where it was not possible to block a certain type of content. “The whole site has to be blocked,” he said.
