“The restoration of TikTok is strictly subject to the condition that the platform will not be used for the spread of vulgarity/indecent content & societal values will not be abused. PTA will be constrained to permanently block the application incase said condition is not fulfilled,” the authority warned.
TikTok had assured that it would work harder to moderate content and also offered to invest in the country if the ban were to be lifted.
