Bannistan Strikes Yet Again

Social Media Reacts After TikTok Gets Banned In Pakistan

It seems that Pakistan can not go a single day without banning something or the other. Instead of banning immoral acts like rape, harassment, and violence, all this country can actually ban is entertainment-based content and something the youth of the nation can actually enjoy and benefit from.

From banning to even talk about the recent rape incident to banning television dramas for 'promoting indecency', then the day before yesterday, banning popular television web series, 'Churails', Bannistan (previously known as Pakistan) strikes again by now banning popular social media platform, Tiktok, and Pakistanis have gone livid.
