Pakistani teacher, student get married after ‘indecent’ TikTok video goes viral


A teacher and his student have contracted court marriage a week after they were both expelled from their college after an ‘improper’ video of them was posted to TikTok.

According to The Express Tribune, Rafqat Hussain, 38, an English teacher at the Government Postgraduate College Haripur married his student Zainab Ali, 24 at a local court. Rafqat, who is already married and has three children with his first wife, shared a copy of his marriage certificate saying, “We were in a relationship. We were waiting for our families’ consent to get married.” He claims that the initial 20-second clip was not meant to be shared, but someone with ‘ill-intent- to the couple hacked into Zainab’s phone and posted it on the popular app TikTok.

Is TikTok corrupting the Youth?

Videos of people lip-syncing to songs? Sounds innocent enough. But, in an app where over 13 million videos are uploaded a day, it’s impossible to filter out all the inappropriate or dangerous content. Social media provides instant gratification. Some may see this as a good thing, but in reality, it can be a huge false promise. You can document their every move for the whole world to see. Whether it’s a “like” or “comment”, the main aim of users’ uploading videos to Tik Tok is to gain attention. For the sake of going “viral”, users are taking life-threatening risks.
