LAHORE: The Lahore High Court has sought replies from PTA and federal government on petition seeking a ban on video app Tik Tok.

A single bench of LHC headed by Justice Shahid Mubeen took up the petition for hearing Monday. The petition was filed by local lawyer Nadeem Sarwar. The petitioner stated that Tik Tok was disastrous for young generation as the app was wasting time and money besides helping in disseminating obscenity.

The lawyer Nadeem Sarwar took the plea that the video app was fomenting harassment and blackmailing in a big way. The petitioner requested the court to order PTA for slapping a ban on Tik Tok. He also requested the court to direct federal government to enact Privacy Protection Act to save the young generation from negative effects of social media. The petitioner also requested the court to issue orders for stopping video until the decision of this case. The court adjourned the hearing until December 12 due to absence of the petitioner.
