Kathmandu: Prime Minister Pushpakamal Dahal Prachanda has stated that a ban on TikTok will be imposed to save social harmony and family unity from disturbance. Addressing the program of offering homage to the national luminary Shankhadhar Saakhwa in Bhaktapur on Tuesday, which marked the beginning of Nepal Sambat 1144 and commemorated the initiator of Nepal Sambat, Prime Minister Prachanda informed that the decision was made to control the tendencies that spread discord, distortion, and lawlessness in society and to prevent the state from advancing irresponsibly.

The government’s goal in imposing the ban was to inspire control over tendencies that spread distortion, discord, and lawlessness in society, as stated in his clear statement.
‘How to control the tendency to spread distortion, discord, and lawlessness in society and prevent the state from advancing irresponsibly?’ After extensive discussions on this topic, all political parties within the country, including both the ruling and opposition parties, reached a consensus. The study also extended to the international level, where democracies and developed countries at the international level have embraced credibility. This debate is ongoing. In this, there are also votes and disagreements.
