TikTok Head of Public Policy-Emerging Markets and Head of Global CSR, Helena Lersch, along with her team visited the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) headquarters . PTA has agreed to work with TikTok to build a framework to guarantee that all content shared on the site is legal and safe for society.

As per the press release, “The chairman PTA, while acknowledging the highlighted efforts of TikTok, assured to continue engagement with TikTok to reach at a mutually acceptable mechanism for provision of safe, lawful and productive internet experience to the users in Pakistan.”


Earlier, Chief Justice of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) Athar Minallah expressed anger over the fourth ban on video-sharing app TikTok by PTA and asked the authority for justification regarding the ban.


TikTok was banned for the fourth time in Pakistan on July 21, 2021 for its failure to take down “inappropriate content”.
