“It is requested that immediate action may be taken on the subject matter,” the ministry directed the PTA chairman.

Shortly after, the PTA released an official statement saying: “In order to maintain public order and safety, access to certain social media applications has been restricted temporarily.”

Following the interior ministry’s directives, Nayatel — an internet service provider — said in a message to its customers that social media platforms had been blocked on the directions of the PTA.

These platforms include Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, TikTok and Telegram. “The inconvenience is regretted,” it said.

Although the notification issued by the interior ministry did not mention a reason for the suspension, the development comes after several days of unrest in the country due to protests by the recently proscribed Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP).
