The Punjab Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) has imposed a ban on TikTokers from entering any public parks after the Minar-e-Pakistan incident on Independence Day. The decision was made in a meeting of PHA officials held in Lahore on Sunday, reported ARY News.
According to a statement issued by PHA officials, all TikTokers will need special permission from concerned authority to enter a public park. Furthermore, PHA is also considering from banning more than two men in public parks.
