The Pakistani move comes a few months later to ban its neighbor, India, the same application after political skirmishes with China and accusations about ownership of the application.

It is noteworthy that the Pakistani ban coincides with US decisions threatening to ban the application, which would be removed after the recent Oracle agreement.

Tik Tok had encountered several problems recently, especially its ban in India, American threats, and the resignation of its CEO after 3 months to appoint him.
