If TikTok’s ban was the only answer, Google should also be banned : IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah

The High Court of Islamabad on Friday instructed the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) to comply with the ban on TikTok and establish processes and engage the Federal Government.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah said Google should also be prohibited if TikTok is the only option.

This is the 21st century and the livelihoods of individuals are linked to social media applications,” he continued.

The PTA lawyer replied that Peshawar and Sindh Superior Courts had prohibited the application and requested that a mechanism be drawn.

It also inquired whether the PTA could persuade the court that both the pros and the negatives of TikTok have been investigated, and whether or not they know where and why the app has been banned outside Germany.

The lawyer of PTA claimed that TikTok is prohibited and prohibited for safety concerns in Indonesia and India.

The attorney answered that it was under the Pakistan Electronic Crime Act when asked which legislation the PTA prohibited the app (PECA).

Until 23 August, the court postponed the hearing.
