Popular TikTok star Jannat Mirza has returned to Pakistan after a long stay in Japan. The social media sensation posted her flight details from Tokyo and asked fans to remember her in their prayers. She also mentioned how she will miss the Japanese capital the most.
Opening up on social media about why she wanted to permanently move to Japan, she said that the Pakistani mentality did not resonate with her as they often criticized her content on TikTok.
She is also the first TikTok user to hit over 10 million fans in Pakistan.
However, the TikTok influencer has now clarified that she is not moving permanently to Japan and made the comments in the heat of the moment. She also stated that her comments had to do with the increasing rape cases in Pakistan and misogynistic narrative being perpetrated by certain officials as opposed to the TikTok ban.
"A lot of channels and blogs had published headlines that 'Jannat Mirza is moving to Japan because of banning culture in Pakistan'. I never said that I was moving because of banning culture. I knew that TikTok was going to get unbanned since I was in contact with the company. I did make a statement about moving to Japan but it was after seeing countless reports about women children being raped in the country. The final draw for me was when an official said that the victim shouldn't have gone out in the first place," she said in a video.
