Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has given an official response to a news item that appeared in a section of the media on August 23, 2021, in relation to the proceedings of the case relating to the ban on Tik Tok application that was heard before the Honourable Islamabad High Court.
The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has provided clarification on a number of news items that had not been presented appropriately in the media.
A comment to the extent that ‘TikTok is 99 percent accessible through proxies’ has been incorrectly attributed to PTA’s Counsel has been misattributed. However, the PTA cautioned that while access to the TikTok application has been restricted in the country, the chance that a small number of users would be able to gain access by technological methods cannot be ruled out.
The claims of former Senator Mian Muhammad Ateeq Shaikh, as reported in the media, claiming PTA’s complicity in the banning of the TikTok application are also blatant assertions that are utterly unsupported by any evidence. It is confirmed that the PTA is carrying out its obligations and responsibilities in compliance with the laws and regulations.
