Popular for its dubbing, remakes and minimal acting clips; , video-sharing service TikTok soon became a household name all around the globe - with the youth using the application to showcase their theatrical talent and engage with one another.
However, complaints were soon made regarding the "immoral/indecent" content TikTok was promoting, as suggested by the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority which banned the social network in Pakistan.
Naturally, the decision caused an uproar on Twitter:
Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari straight up called the society sexist
And others pointed out how the app was more than just fun and games
Some took to protest how this was a suppression of artistic freedom
Others used this opportunity to pitch their own requests to PEMRA
While some applauded the decision
Even their priorities were confused
Saying it like it is
Divided by border, united by content
Banning is not the solution, Iqrar Ul Hassan reiterated
