There's A Rumour That Tik Tok Might Be Getting Banned In Pakistan Just Because Of One Person

By Rameeza Ahmad | 8 Jan, 2019

Tik Tok has done nothing but entertain the country. 

 

Tik Tok has been steadily gaining popularity in Pakistan. It was formerly known as Musical.ly before a Chinese company purchased it. The app has thousands upon thousands of Pakistani content creators who are putting out tons of videos daily. Some of the content creators even have cult followings and have gained so much popularity that they actually host meet and greets amongst other things.

There have been rumors circulating recently that the app is going to be banned on January 10

 

All of this craze for Tik Tok might come to an end soon just because of one man in Nowshera

An unidentified citizen used the new Citizen’s Portal app to report Tik Tok as a ‘Social Ill’. His complaint was immediately transferred to the relevant authorities which in this case were the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority. The Citizen’s Portal app is an official application which the Government of Pakistan has launched for citizens of the country to register complaints.

The application is linked to the NADRA database and verifies the details of the person registering the complaint for authenticity. The application is monitored by the PM’s Performance Delivery Unit, and Prime Minister Imran Khan himself reviews the weekly complaints the app has received to check which areas and concerned ministries are involved.

A lot of people have reported how efficient the application is and how quickly requests are transferred to relevant authorities.

 

Several news outlets are reporting that the app will be finally banned in the country on January 10, 2019 because of the lone complaint by a resident of Nowshera

While the content on the app is very cringeworthy, asking for a nationwide Tik Tok ban might a little too drastic. A lot of people use the app, people of all ages and not just children. If the issue is minor being influenced wrongly with the use of the app, then the onus falls on the parents to monitor their children’s online activity.

The decision regarding whether Tik Tok will actually be banned is not yet official. Guess we will just have to wait till January 10  to see what happens.

What do you think of Tik Tok being banned in Pakistan?
