According to ARY News, TikTok is about to be banned in Pakistan and from 10th, January 2019 TikTok Pakistan will be completely closed.

The complaint was filed on the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Citizen Portal App terming the TikTok app as a hazard for Pakistan so it should be blocked. TikTok ban in Pakistan or not now it’s up to government but the deadline is release for TikTok ban in Pakistan.
TikTok Pakistan is adversely affecting Youth
Basically, TikTok is a very famous app nowadays which people use for making short videos. It is a good entertaining app but people from Pakistan are also somehow misusing it. According to some people, this app is adversely affecting our society. Just, for instance, we come across many videos where girls and boys are sexually transmitting any song or dialogue.
As everyone has access to smartphones and the internet so this app is adversely affecting young girls and boys living in Pakistan who are spending most of their time on apps rather than on their studies. According to market analysis firm Sensor Tower, this app became the most downloaded on Apple’s App Store in the first half of this year. It has beaten out titans like Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
This app is popular among young girls, but it exposes them to “caustic comments and other potential abuse.” There are also some media reports about users getting disturbing comments, such as asking for private contact information or to have the user post provocative images.Moreover, the application was filed on Citizen Portal App and the request was quickly responded and forwarded to Pakistan Telecommunication Authority for further action.
Let’s see whether the TikTok will be banned in Pakistan or not!
