  • Tiktok is from China. India has banned Tiktok and America and UK are considering it. We all know that China has protested on this decision. If Pakistan will start banning Chinese apps then we should remember that China will consider that Pakistan is siding with India, America and UK. PTA Old Chairman must think from his brain(if he has any). We can lose an ally by these stupid mistakes. Remember PUBG is Chinese as well.
    Why European and American fighting games and social media platforms are not getting a ban?. Some Officials from PTA are playing a double game against Pakistan?.
