Tinder Banned in Pakistan and people are not looking Happy about it!

Tinder, a social dating site, is a global leader in match making “of sorts”. With the famous format of swiping left or right to meet a potential partner, Tinder has somewhat of a controversial society yet has gained massive popularity. On Saturday though, all the single people in Pakistan could not log on to the site with the app seemingly banned in the country.


Recently “Bigo” was banned in Pakistan with PTA terming it as having ‘immoral, obscene and vulgar content’, Tinder has also been banned with no official announcement by the authority.
People are speculating that the app maybe because of some sexual or illegal activities happening on the platform.

According to a study, Tinder was witnessing a surge in its popularity with its users centered on major cities like Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi.

People have had reactions of this on Twitter.

This week also The Pakistan Telecom Authority has asked YouTube and TikTok subsequently to regulate and block vulgar content.

PTA has asked YouTube to immediately block ‘vulgar, indecent, immoral, nude content and hate speech’ in Pakistan. In July, the PTA had issued a “final warning” to Chinese-owned social media app, TikTok, to strictly regulate on what it called “immoral, obscene and vulgar” content on the video-sharing platform.
