Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) has blocked access to five dating/live streaming applications including Tinder, Tagged, Skout, Grinder and SayHi, the authority announced on Twitter. #tinderban Pakistan bans Tinder citing “immoral content”
But a statement from the PTA has indeed confirmed the news and left Pakistani adults ticked off as their banning spree continues (remember when they went after PUBG?).
Tinder. Tagged, Skout, Grindr and SayHi have all been blocked in the country due to the “negative effects of immoral/indecent content” found on them.
Here PTA announced it on twitter
However, the statement added that the PTA can “reconsider blocking” of the said applications provided their company managements assure adherence to local laws “with respect to moderating the indecent/immoral content through meaningful engagement” and asked them to remove “dating services”. Don’t know how they expect dating apps to remove dating services but okay…
