On the 20th of July, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority blocked Bigo Live, a live-streaming application, after complaints regarding ‘immoral, obscene, negative and vulgar content promotion on the platform’ surfaced.

After the ban, TikTok was also issued a final warning to comply with the country’s social moderation rules and control obscene, vulgar, and immoral content in its application.

Recently, the Chinese application issued a statement in response to PTA’s warning. The report explained that TikTok already uses an extensive content filtration algorithm:

We deploy a combination of technologies and moderation strategies to detect and review questionable content that violates our terms of usage and comprehensive Community Guidelines. Following this, we implement appropriate penalties, including removing videos and banning accounts. Based on our H2 2019 data from our Transparency Report (1st of July – 31st of December, 2019), our moderation system proactively caught and removed 98.2% of videos before a user reported them.

The app owners claim that 89.4% of the total videos removed were taken down before the videos received any views. TikTok app offers several controls, tools, and privacy settings to report inappropriate content.

According to TikTok, 3,728,162 user videos that violated regulations were removed from the Pakistani platform.

There has been another development in the rapid internet censorship action going on in Pakistan. Justice Qazi Amin has hinted at banning YouTube in Pakistan once again after hearing a bail plea.
