On the court orders, four TikTokers arrested for spreading terror in Multan were released from prison on Tuesday.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, friends, and followers of the TikTokers celebrated their release by sprinkling flower petals and dancing on the beats of drums outside the prison.
The TikTokers said that they did not make any illegal TikTok, adding that they were grateful to those who supported them in the difficult times of detention under the charges of spreading terror in the society.
A division bench of Multan High Court on Monday, August 02, 2021, set aside the detention order of four TikTokers including three real brothers. The TikTokers were famous to upload videos on the social media app TikTok in which they could be seen uttering dialogues of different movies, sporting long tresses, and tightening up their moustaches.
The Multan High Court bench judge, Justice Anwarul Huq Pannu while hearing a case against the accused, gave a verdict in favour of the TikTokers and ordered their immediate release.
Advocate Rana Javed Iqbal presented the arguments on behalf of the TikTokers. The lawyers argued that no immoral or illegal videos of the TikTokers were found. They said that the Multan CCPO detained the TikTokers through illegal order.
The petitioners said that they did not disturb the peace and security situation nor did they provoke people through their videos.
The police accused the TikTokers of uploading sensational videos that might promote terrorism and fear.
