Pakistan blocks TikTok over ‘inappropriate content’

Video-sharing app, TikTok, on Wednesday was blocked in Pakistan for a fourth time due to ‘inappropriate content’, the country’s telecommunication regulator said.

The site has fought a series of legal battles with activists and authorities in the nation, and was shut down for two days earlier this month on the order of a provincial court.

The action has been taken due to continuous presence of inappropriate content on the platform and its failure to take such content down, the telecoms authority said in a statement.
