Tiktok is an Epicenter of Obscenity, Nudity & Cyber-Crime Activities

Published

There was a time when public access in Pakistan was limited to PTV broadcasts and newspapers. With the rise of media freedom and technology, the number of channels has increased. There are some reservations on these channels but after a little noise, PEMRA can be woken up, and also the censorship rules are applied on TV channels.

But the problem does not end there, as people today rely more on digital media than on print and electronic media. The scientific advancement and the growing demand for knowledge have put the mobile phone in every hand. Every user has access to all kinds of content and new applications. In such a situation, the state is a distant thing, even the parents cannot do a thing about this.

Tiktok is among those applications that are rapidly gaining popularity around the globe. This application has ensnared everyone without any distinction. Under the guise of entertainment, this app has become the root of many evils.

The app is not only spreading obscenity and nudity in our society but also becoming a hotbed of cybercrime with new scandals and leaked videos day by day. Recently, about 10 immoral videos based on sexual content came to light. These leaked contents also include the videos of underage girls.

If we allow these apps to continue like this then why do we feel guilty on the Kasur-like incidents? Due to the timely action of cyber agencies, the sexual content could not be spread on social networking sites but spread rapidly on WhatsApp. Imagine how many lives this so-called “entertainment” app would ruin.

Besides, as a Muslim nation, our eyes are bowed with shame when we see our young generation dancing and singing on camera, and boys disguising as girls. This app destroying our culture by exploiting the raw minds of our new generation. Moreover, making fun of religion just for the sake of views and likes has also become a trend on this app. Young models, actresses, and other popular girls are uploading their videos of dancing which are shameful and full of obscenity and nudity.

Not only does this app have morally detrimental effects, but according to a report, the obsession of making Tiktok videos also swallowed the lives of more than 10 Pakistani youngsters. Government authorities should wake up from an illusionary dream and immediately take action against those apps that are increasing immoral activities in our culture.

An application in the Lahore High Court regarding the ban on Tiktok proved to be the first drop of rain. PTI member Seemabia Tahir has also submitted a resolution in the Punjab Assembly.

The federal government, especially Imran Khan, is aware of its responsibilities. That is why, in order to improve the quality of electronic media, a historical drama like Ertugl was aired. This drama will not only create an atmosphere of healthy competition in the media industry but will also lead to the renewal of Islamic traditions.

But apps like Tiktok must immediately be Banned in Pakistan that is creating disastrous effects on our Islamic culture. Ban on the Pubg game was although a controversial decision by the government. Now there is a dire need from the government to take practical steps, in addition to resolutions and petitions to ban Tiktok.

We all have a responsibility to save our generation from immoral activities, but the heaviest responsibility is on the government at the time.    As a responsible citizen of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, we urge the government to take immediate action against this app, which is corrupting our society and contrary to our traditions.

Father Sold his Daughter To Buy A Smartphone and Motorcycle

Published

on

We often fall in with stories on social media and news channels highlighting the brutal face of the mentally sick people of the society.

Although, the crime rate has been declined amidst the coronavirus pandemic but a few people are out there to show their bestiality to the world by committing heinous conduct.

According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), an average of 80 murders, 289 abductions, and 91 rapes were reported across the country in 2018 in India on a daily basis.

A new heart-wrenching incident took place in the Chikkaballhar district of India. An inexorable father sold his daughter, who was only three years old, to buy a smartphone and motorcycle.

He sold his daughter to a childless couple for INR 100,000. And he bought a smartphone for INR 15,000 and a motorcycle for INR 50,000 with the money he got.

The parents had tried to sell the baby to a family in Bengaluru when she was born, but their plan failed as the hospital authority meddled. After this, another person got the wind of the situation and made a deal with them on the behest of a childless couple in another village.

After the man used all the money, his neighbor grew skeptical, and they found out that his daughter had not been at home. They informed the police who inquired some villagers including the mother of the baby. The child welfare committee found the girl and a case has been filed against the couple.

The father took to his heel but the mother was incarcerated. The authority interrogated her and she brought to the light that her husband had intimidated her that’s why she allowed selling her daughter.

What could be the rhyme and reason that goaded the parents to sell their own blood? Either they are mentally sick or the financial problems made them sell their three years old baby.

What can be the Possible Solution to Karachi’s Conundrum?

Published

on

As we all are apprised of the rack and ruin brought about by the inclement monsoon season in the metropolitan city of Pakistan, Karachi. The people of Karachi have been compelled to face severe losses in the wake of rain floods engulfed approximately the whole city. Despite severe losses due to the rain that has inflicted upon the people, one positive development has been witnessed as the masses are incensed with the management and administration of Karachi and the sense of raising their voices this time for the amelioration of the shambolic city is developed. Who is held responsible for the administrative fiasco in Karachi?

The city has not seen major development at the hands of ruling parties instead of the Musharraf era in which, under the watch of Mayor Karachi Mustafa Kamal, the city was leading ahead in the whole South Asian region in terms of development and progressive work. It is not wrong to say that the development Lahore has witnessed in 2013-2014, Karachi was enjoying in 2005, as ill-luck would have it, no further up-gradation in the city has seen till to date. Unfortunately, due to incompetence and politics, the financial hub of Pakistan and one of the largest cities in the world are enjoying the serendipity of trash. Due to power politics between PPP and MQM, the city is lagging in development and the masses are enduring a very difficult situation.

Much to the sufferings of people, Karachi deserves a comprehensive and practicable solution to all the problems faced by the people. So, they can finally take a sigh of relief.

The concept of ‘Karachi a separate province’, as it is surfacing on social media and the minds of people, is utterly non-viable because it clashes the vested interest of the political parties and the administrative problems solely lie with the people not with the parties, and they will never allow laying their hands off of the hen who lay golden eggs as the slogan ‘Marso Marso Sindh Na Deso’ will start airing.

Although, if Karachi is made a separate administrative unit, to much extent, the management problems can be eradicated. But again the problem is the same.

The most viable and workable solution for the administrative fiasco in Karachi as well as for all the metropolitan cities is to develop ‘Local Body Structure’ as it is already established in major big cities of the world. For instance, London has its local body structure spearheading by mayor Sadiq khan who is responsible for all the issues occurring in the city, including sewage problems, transport, sanitation, policymaking, public safety, and water supply management.

We are still bound to the inherited ancient structure from the British and they moved to the new one local body structure in which the mayor is directly elected by the people and bestowed by a full-fledged authority to run the city’s affairs properly.

On the other hand in Pakistan, commissioners and deputy commissioners control all affairs of the city. At the time of crisis, people are blowing hot and cold to whom they go for their complaints, either go to chief ministries, the federal government, or powerless mayors. The masses should be directed to one person responsible for the city’s administration. Unfortunately, in Pakistan MNA’s are doing the work of pavement of streets and the concrete meant of roads which is highly contrary to their work as they are responsible for making laws in the national assembly.

The local body system set up in 2013 was hamstrung and completely failed as the powers were not devolved to the lower level of the institutions. We often saw the mayor of Karachi Waseem Akhtar crying for funds and imploring to the provincial government for funds to take the tasks to completion in the city. After the 18th amendment, the power and authority were given to provinces but the devolution of power to grass root level is not assured.

Karachi is plunged in a quagmire of different power holders like the Army handling some institutions, MNA’s of the ruling party, and the mayor of Karachi. As I aforementioned, who is held responsible for the failure, and people should know whose neck they are going to hold in time of crisis.

It is the need of the hour to make different administrative units to run this country efficiently and effectively as the administration becomes plain sailing. Our neighbor country India has nearly 36 administrative units, America has approximately 50 states and our brother country turkey has 81 provinces. So, by seeing these example its desideratum becomes quite evident.

Why the ‘Second Marriage’ has become a Necessity in our Society? (Facts & Figures)

Published

on

It is a bitter truth that our society does not accept the second marriage, which has three major disadvantages.

1. The number of unmarried girls in our country is increasing day by day.

According to a UNICEF report, more than 10 million girls (20 to 25 years) of marriageable age are waiting to get married in Pakistan. About one million of them have reached the age of marriage. It is noteworthy that 75% of the girls waiting for marriage are educated.

2. The number of widows in the beloved homeland is increasing with the passage of time.

There are about 6 million single widows between the ages of 30 and 45. This means that these are widows whose second marriage is possible, but for whom there is no strong governmental and non-governmental system in the country to provide for them.

3. The rate of divorced girls/women is gradually increasing.

The divorce rate in the beloved homeland is also on the rise. According to an estimation, the divorce rate in the homeland was 13% in 1970, which has now risen to more than 35%. Some believe that one of the reasons for the increase in divorce is the Family Courts Act 2015. Under section 6, the process of khula has been made easier. Compared to the past, 2018 saw a significant increase in the divorce rate. In 2018, 15,800 khula claims were filed in the Family Courts of Lahore alone.

The above situation demands that we correct ourselves before it is too late. Otherwise, our defeated family system will collapse. In order to correct this devastating situation, we need to promote the second marriage in our society. Married girls should be generous while feeling the pain of girls like them. The one who comes should also show moderation, be an ideal companion so that others may also be encouraged and a good tradition may be promoted.

Relationships should be made easier by eliminating or minimizing the demands of the relationship. Relationships should be established in a timely manner, and delays due to education and other unnecessary reasons should be avoided.

The curse of dowry should be eradicated in the beloved homeland. In this regard, both the government and the people have a role to play. We must educate the youth that both dowry takers and givers are corrupting society. Those individuals/families who are promoting the dowry tradition should be socially excluded.

If you are a boy, try to feel the pain that arises in the hearts of the parents of unmarried, aging girls. In order to reduce the divorce rate in our society, parents must educate their sons to become good husbands. And mothers should train their daughters so that they can become a good wife/daughter-in-law/mother-in-law.
