Notice issued to PTA on request to suspend decision on ban on tick-tock

Islamabad: ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has hinted at lifting the PTA's ban on video sharing app TikTak.

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has issued a detailed notice to the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on a petition seeking immediate suspension of the decision to shut down the short video sharing app 'Tik Tak'.

Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Atharmanullah issued a three-page written order asking why the PTA's decision should not be suspended till the final verdict in the case.

The court said that the counsel asked the petitioner for attention, the petition is accepted for hearing and PTA should appoint a senior officer to appear before the court at the next hearing.

The court appointed PFUJ President Mazhar Abbas and Vice Chairman Pakistan Bar Council Javed Jabbar as judicial assistants and asked them to assist the court on the alleged abuse of PTA powers and violation of fundamental constitutional rights.

Further hearing of the case will be held in the Islamabad High Court on October 23.

Last week, the PTA banned the popular video-sharing app Tik Tak for sharing inappropriate content.
