TikTok star Hareem Shah has upheld the Peshawar High Court’s decision to ban the video-sharing app TikTok. She said, after several warnings, many people have lost their lives just to make a few seconds video.
“We have raised our voices against the ban imposed on TikTok earlier. However, many people have lost their lives just to create a TikTok video”.
According to the details, the TikTok star said the High Court was forced to take such a decision as people were misusing the app. Blaming the other TikTok users, Hareem said,
“When people find something new, they start misusing it instead of using it wisely”.
Sending a message to her fans, Hareem Shah said that whenever the government makes a decision, it does so by keeping us [people] in mind. If we want to make a video, we should make something beneficial.

PHC Order To Ban TikTok
The Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Thursday has ordered to ban the popular video sharing application ‘TikTok’ in Pakistan.
According to the details, a hearing was conducted on the petition seeking a ban on TikTok.
Director-General Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), Deputy Attorney General, petitioner’s counsel Nazish Muzaffar and Sara Ali appeared in the court.
During the proceedings, Chief Justice Peshawar High Court Justice Qaiser Rasheed Khan remarked that the videos uploaded on TikTok are against our ‘cultural’ and ‘moral values.
DG PTA told the court that they have requested TikTok authorities to remove inappropriate and obscene content, but the management has taken no action over it.
PTA DG also informed that 4.5 million videos are uploaded daily on the application in Pakistan alone.
CJ Peshawar High Court remarked that “Till the time TikTok authorities do not cooperate with you to stop immoral content, we are imposing a ban on this application.”
“The application is affecting the youth most. Reports we get about TikTok are regrettable,” the top judge of Peshawar High Court said.
