Islamabad: Pakistan on Tuesday, reportedly banned access to five virtual dating mobile applications, including Tinder, Grindr and three others for not adhering to local laws and providing immoral contents.
Meanwhile, the ban immediately took over Twitter with netizens sarcastically asking about, “What will happen to the married men?”

In a press release, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) said it had issued notices to the management of five apps – Tinder, Tagged, Skout, Grindr and SayHi – to restrict dating services and to curb live streaming content in accordance with the local laws of the country.
On failing to respond to the notices, PTA issued the order for prohibiting the applications.

However, Tinder did not immediately return a request for comment.
The PTA said that the mobile applications could request to have their blocks lifted only if they show they are “moderating the indecent/immoral content through meaningful engagement.”
The regulator, though, did not specify what exactly the term engagement meant in the statement.
Last week, the PTA also asked YouTube to block all the objectionable videos from the platform.
