After Pakistan Telecommunication Authority warned to ban TikTok in Pakistan, the Chinese app has updated the application for Pakistani users by issuing guidelines in Urdu.

Some ground rules of creating the content have been laid down that will help in creating a beneficial experience on the platform.

This step by TikTok was necessary to ensure the Pakistani government that the platform will never promote anything that can challenge the country’s value.


Several Pakistani celebrities have joined with TikTok to raise awareness about the content creations and how to make the most from the application.

Actress Zhalay Sarhadi requested the TikTok users not to ridicule others and to report the negative content. She went on to urge the people that instead of launching a campaign against them, TikTok users should report them on the app. Their content will be deleted by the company.

On the other hand, Hira Mani advised people to acknowledge safety guidelines while making any content. She highlighted that the community guidelines are also available in Urdu so every Pakistan can understand them.


While actor Azfar Rehman asked the TikTok users not to spread fake news and always differentiate between right and wrong.
