In this news, we discuss the Leaving Pakistan as people’s mindset isn’t good, says country’s TikTok star.
Days after Pakistan banned the China-based social media app, the country’s biggest TikTok star Jannat Mirza announced his departure from the country, The News International reported. As Mirza is the first TikTok user to reach over 10 million fans in Pakistan, the news has left millions of her fans devastated.
The News International reported that one of their fans asked, “Jannat why u and Alishba are ignoring this text. Why move to Japan [sic]”. While responding, the TikTok sensation said: “Ku k Pakistan bht pyara or acha hai lekin Pakistan k logo ki mentality achi nhi (although Pakistan is beautiful, but the state of mind of its people is not. ). “
On October 9, Pakistan joined the list of countries like India and the United States – whose differences with China are obvious – in banning the Chinese TikTok app. The ban on the Chinese social media app on Friday, citing “immoral content,” has left many wondering whether Islamabad’s dream of becoming an “all-weather ally” with Beijing will ever become a reality. The Pakistani government has often been accused of turning a blind eye to human rights abuses against Muslims in China’s Xinjiang region in the hope of having an “all-weather ally.”
Pakistan’s ban comes at a time when there is international outcry over the short-lived video creation app for compromising the security of nations at China’s behest. The video sharing app, which is owned by ByteDance in China, has been downloaded nearly 39 million times in Pakistan and is the third most downloaded app in the past year after WhatsApp and Facebook, according to analytics company Sensor Tower.
Recently, a civil petition was filed with the Lahore High Court asking for an immediate ban on TikTok. Lawyer Nadeem Sarwar had made the claim on behalf of a citizen who is also a petitioner in the main petition in this regard, pending in court, The Dawn reported.
The lawyer argued that the main petition hearing against TikTok had not been scheduled so far and that the issue was of great importance. More than 10 deaths have been reported in the country in incidents related to users of the app, he said. (ANI)
