Pakistani film and TV actress Ushna Shah has suggested that the government should rethink its priorities and solve issues that are prevalent in the country rather than banning apps like TikTok.
The actress believed that serious issues like abuse and femicide are on the back burner while the government turns to ban social media apps in response to those issues. She added that instead of banning the app, which she believes gives users creative relief, the institutions should focus on making Pakistan a safe place for women.
“In a developing country like ours, serious prevalent problems existing in our society like the safety of women, marginalized communities, and animal abuse are hardly focused on at institutional levels,” she said.
“TikTok is hardly a problem, if anything, it is a part of the solution providing people creative relief.” Earlier, Ushna Shah announced that she had tested positive for coronavirus even after the two mandatory doses of the vaccine.
The actress took to Instagram and informed her millions of fans about it. Ushna said, “Even with the two mandatory doses of the vaccine, I have tested positive for Covid-19.”
“I am a relatively healthy person with a strong immune system but the bug got through, and the symptoms are extremely unpleasant. I shudder to think what would have happened had I not been vaccinated.”
“I urge everyone to wear mask, get vaccinated and take all necessary precautions to protect themselves!” Ushna said and added, “Covid-19 is not a joke and the Delta variant is certainly not to be taken lightly.”
