In the upscaling of TikTok trends, three Pakistani TikTokers took a next-level step to make their videos viral. These Pakistani content creators set parts of the Margalla Hills on fire to get dramatic effects in their videos. As a few days back, a video of two young people setting the forest on fire at Margalla Hills for a TikTok video attracted widespread criticism and outrage. In the video, a TikToker could be seen setting the forest on fire with a lighter.

Moreover, in another viral video, a female TikToker can be seen setting fire to the trees in Margalla Hills to add dramatic effects to her video. Dozens of trees were burnt to ashes to create a dramatic effect for the viewers in the footage. Currently one of the offenders is in custody while environment administrators are striving to register a case against these Pakistani TikTokers.

Meanwhile, the environment unit of the Capital Division Authority in Islamabad has applied with the Kohsar Police Station, seeking an inquiry against Islamabad-based female TikToker, Dolly, under the Environment Protection Act 1997. In addition to this, sharing the video of the female TikToker on Twitter, Islamabad Wildlife Management Board Chairperson Rina Khan condemned the acts for just mere dramatic effects in a video. “This is a disturbing and disastrous trend on TikTok,” she said. “Young people desperate for followers are setting fire to our forests during this hot and dry season.”
