Can banning TikTok stop vulgarity?

Netizens have once again urged the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to place a ban on TikTok as it is once again spreading vulgarity and misleading Pakistani youth, as per the tweets.

Netizens have once again urged the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to place a ban on TikTok as it is once again spreading vulgarity and misleading Pakistani youth, as per the tweets.

It has become normal for the Chinese short-video making app TikTok to get banned in the country, sometimes it’s because of spreading objectionable content on its platform or sometimes for allegedly peddling vulgarity, but this time it’s for celebrating a pride month on its platform.

TikTok, earlier this month, announced celebrating LGBTQ+ groups and defining what it means to embrace self-pride and live their lives freely and to the fullest which is “unacceptable for Pakistani society.” Interestingly, many youngsters have joined and shown support for this initiative. 

This move has sparked outrage on social media and people are now demanding a ban on TikTok on an immediate basis.
