Fahad Mustafa ne TikTok fans se panga le liya
There has been an exponential increase in the craze of the TikTok in 2019. This viral platform is one of the most-used apps of the year and by now, everyone’s pretty aware of what the app offers, and how it allows users to showcase their ‘acting’ skills and become overnight stars. The extreme popularity of TikTok hasn’t been received so well by some… “old school” folks and actor Fahad Mustafa just happens to be one of them.
Fahad Mustafa went after TikTok when he requested parents to keep their kids away from it
The actor mentioned that the parents should be careful and not let their kids use this app. He further talked about that the entire nation is busy doing ‘nothing’.
To All the parents out there plz keep your kids away from this tik tok bullshit its not healthy. Entire nation is busy doing nothing .#DoSomethingProductive

People on social media were quick to point out that while Fahad Mustafa lashed at TikTok but the game show he hosts is equally unproductive and humiliating, if not more so
There has been recent controversy over Jeeto Pakistan, the game show that Fahad hosts, allegedly manipulating innocent audience members for ratings.
also keep away from Jeeto Pakistan where you are humiliated for free goody bags https://t.co/1G7wMfPzIv

This quickly turned into a Fahad Mustafa vs TikTok competition with people roasting the actor
They drew funny comparisons between Fahad’s Jeeto Pakistan and the Tiktok app.
Please delete your TikTok accounts and start watching JEETO PAKISTAN on weekends because that show gives you free lessons on daily life That show is way too productive 😂😂😂 https://t.co/wGFfQ7VM3z

Yes, I almost forgot Jeeto Pakistan encourages people to work for a living rather than make a mockery of their izzat just to own a few prized possessions. https://t.co/4c6yw8smdQ

People argued that kids should be kept away from Fahad’s show

Others in this debate questioned what gave Fahad the authority to call young people’s activities as bullshit
They asked if the ‘productivity’ of Jeeto Pakistan was producing scientists and researchers.

Some kind folks even tried to explain to Fahad Mustafa how TikTok is actually helping a large number of people earn money and is productive for them
First of all it's NOT nothing. People are earning through it and is a big deal. Secondly, what people need to realize is not everything is for everyone. So if it's not for them don't waste time on it. But if they are well off with it, it's productive for them.

Do you support Fahad in thinking that TikTok is not a productive app or do you actually know what the TikTok community of Pakistan, and beyond is actually like? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
