TikTok has reportedly stopped working in the country after the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) directed service providers to block it.

The development comes after the Peshawar High Court (PHC) ruled earlier in the day to block the video-sharing platform.

The video-sharing platform will remain blocked in the country till it complies with the government’s rules and regulations. The PTA had directed the country’s service providers to block users’ access to video-sharing app TikTok — in line with the court’s orders.

“In respectful compliance to the orders of the Peshawar High Court, PTA has issued directions to the service providers to immediately block access to the TikTok App,” the PTA had said.
