Fawad Chaudhry speaks up about ‘moral policing and ban approach’

Fawad Chaudhry highlighted how development in technology would "be permanently hampered" across Pakistan, a country that already lags significantly behind the world in terms of science and research.

ISLAMABAD: Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry has shared his thoughts on the ongoing “ethical policing and prohibition policy” in Pakistan. “While the country is considering a permanent ban on ticks and pubs, the Chinese app contains immoral, obscene and obscene content.”

Fawad said it was inappropriate to ban left, right and center applications, which would destroy the Pakistan technology industry.

He pointed out how technology development across Pakistan, which lags behind the world in terms of science and research, is permanently hampered.

The federal minister expressed concern over how sustainable and misleading economic advice would affect the country’s growth.

Bon Bigo, final warning to Tic Tac Toe

The Telecommunications Authority of Pakistan (PTA) on Monday took action against the Chinese-owned Tic Tac Toe and video streaming app Bigoi after receiving numerous complaints from various sections of society on the immoral, obscene and pornographic content in these apps.

Although Tick Tock responded that “maintaining a safe and positive application environment” is its priority, the PTA has not yet responded. “Chinese Application Management uses a combination of technologies and control strategies to identify and review problematic content that violates our Terms of Use and Comprehensive Community Guidelines.”

TickTalk reported that 3,728,162 user-infringing videos were removed from Pakistan between July 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019, claiming that it provided users with a number of restrictions, tools and privacy settings for reporting inappropriate content.

Earlier this month, PTB temporarily banned PTB because it was “addictive” and could have a serious negative impact on the physical and mental health of players. The decision was based on media reports and complaints of “suicide cases caused by the PUBG game”.
