Her fans expressed sadness after her announcement. Earlier, the TikTok star had supported the ban on TikTok but not a complete one.
“I, myself, wanted a ban on TikTok in Pakistan, but it should not be on a permanent basis,” she said. Mirza added: “I am in Japan and I have received news from Pakistan about the ban on TikTok.”
She, however, said that livelihood of so many people is connected to the application. The application should continue but with certain SOPs. She also advocated the monitoring of the content.
“In general, it was a good app. It was accessible to everyone. So much talent emerged through this app,” she emphasized.
Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) had blocked the application in the country last week. The authority cited the failure of the social media app to follow the instructions on the “development of an effective mechanism for proactive moderation of unlawful online content”.
