Parents had complained to the Prime Minister about immoral videos on Tik Tak, Shahbaz Gill, Shahbaz Gill, special assistant to PM Imran Khan for political media, said that the Tik Tak app was shut down due to immoral videos. Some parents had complained to the PM about this and had also sent videos.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Shahbaz Gill said that at present the mobile phone application Tik Tak has been blocked in Pakistan and talks are underway with the Tik Tak administration to formulate a code of conduct.
Habaz Gul said that if the Tak Tak administration followed the ethical rules, the app would be revived in Pakistan.
It may be recalled that the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) had yesterday announced a ban on Chinese social media app TikTalk.
According to the PTA, various sections of the society had complained about the presence of immoral and obscene content on Tik Tak, after which it was decided to ban the app.
It may be recalled that in recent days, Federal Minister for Information Shibli Faraz had said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was deeply concerned over the growing nudity and obscenity in the society and directed all concerned authorities to prevent it as it would result in failure. The social and religious values of Pakistani society will be destroyed.
Shibli Faraz said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has spoken to me on this issue not once or twice but 15 or 16 times and he wants to stop the spread of pornography through central media and social media and its applications. A comprehensive strategy should be formulated.
According to Shibli Faraz, Prime Minister Imran Khan says that the incidence of rape of children and women has increased due to nudity.
He further said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had recently told him that apps like Tik Tak were doing great damage to the values of the society so it should be blocked.
