Why did PTA just ban Xiaomi phones? The answer is scarier than you think
Rafay Baloch, an I.T expert, pointed out on Facebook that Xiaomi phones were allegedly stealing user data and sending it to Chinese servers.
The IT guru applauded the decision of the regulatory authority and said that Pakistan's neighbor India had also banned the smartphone for the same reason.
The website says: "We have stopped smartphone sales in Pakistan until further notice.The Pakistani Concerned authority (PTA) through Mr Nauman Khalid has demanded that XiaomiPK.com has to stop the sale/marketing of all Mi mobile devices."
Other observers, however, have taken another line, saying that Xiaomi had not registered itself in Pakistan, due to which it was banned.
XiaomiPK reportedly started selling Xiaomi smartphones in Pakistan on July 11th 2016, without obtaining a No-Objection Certificate from the relevant government agency, a preliminary requirement for a foreign business to operate in Pakistan.
