ISLAMABAD: June 30, 2021 Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has said that the country will never be able to get out of the economic crisis if judicial reforms are not carried out.
In a statement on the microblogging site Twitter, he stressed the need for judicial reform in the wake of the ban on the social media application Tik Tok and the order to remove the president of the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP).
In his tweet, he said that since yesterday, after reading the decision to ban Tik Tok and remove the President of the National Bank, he was confused as to what our courts are doing.
At the same time, he wrote in his statement that “this country is already suffering billions of dollars in losses at the hands of judicial activism.”
It may be recalled that a few days ago, the Sindh High Court had ordered the Pakistan Telecom Authority (PTA) to close tick-tock applications in the country till July 8.
The court ruled that Tik Tok did not follow “affidavits and assurances” to block pornographic accounts before the courts and the PTA.
Earlier in March, the Peshawar High Court banned the video-sharing application, which was lifted in April.
