TikTok community takes to social media to defend Jannat Mirza after Bushra Ansari criticized her for being ‘ignorant’
According to the TikTok star, the accessory was a gifted PR package and she didn't think it could hurt the feelings of a certain community.
Jannat Mirza is a famous name in the TikTok community of Pakistan with over 14 Million followers on the video streaming platform. Recently, the TikToker was accused by veteran actress Bushra Ansari of being ignorant and hurting the sentiments of the minorities residing in Pakistan.
The accusations began when Jannat Mirza posted a picture in which she was seen wearing an accessory on her pants – the symbol of a cross, sacred to Christians. The accessory hung on her pants along with a chain.
Veteran actress Bushra Ansari took to social media to call out the TikTok star. Objecting to Jannat Mirza’s accessory choice, she said:
These so-called stars don’t know anything about Islam or any other religion.
According to the TikTok star, the accessory was a gifted PR package and she didn’t think it could hurt the feelings of a certain community. As soon as the Christian community disapproved of the accessory, Jannat Mirza apologized. Addressing Bushra Ansari, Jannat Mirza said:
Before criticizing someone, take the time out to know the full truth. This is not okay at all!
Another TikToker and Jannat Mirza’s sister Alishba Anjum replied to Bushra Ansari and said:
You are also an actress and you don’t have the right to preach to us. What you do is also not allowed in Islam. I do because I am sinful. Jannat has already apologized and people have accepted it & forgiven her.
Later on, Umar Fayyaz Butt, TikTok star and alleged boyfriend of Jannat Mirza also called out Bushra Ansari and said:
Bushra Ansari, you are illiterate. You have proved that you are illiterate (jahil). You should apologize for what you have said about Jannat Mirza. You are not anyone to call out.
It should be noted that Bushra Ansari has not reacted to any of the statements made by the TikTokers yet.
