Jannat Mirza said banning Tiktok was a good step

When asked about her feelings regarding the ban on Tiktok, Jannat first explained how she was in Japan when she first received a call that let her know of the ban. She said it was a good step because, for the past few days, there was a lot of indecent behavior on the site.

People were hurling insults at each other and being extremely disrespectful. Thus, she appreciated the idea of a temporary ban in the hopes that inappropriate behavior like this will be curbed.

Jannat Mirza also opposed the permanent ban of the app

While she supported the temporary ban, she also said that if the ban was permanent, that’s not appropriate at all. That’s because many rising artists used the platform to fulfill their dreams, sharing their talent with the world, and have had new opportunities open up for them through this. She said she encourages that TikTok to be live again once matters have settled and SOPs are put in place.
